This month’s Dream Club features our local designer Laura Nelkin’s Cruzado Cowl to showcase the beautiful Classy yarn in an exclusive color and special 340 yard skein. The clever design incorporates a Mobius cast on and her own “Cruzado Criss Cross” stitch, creating runs of elongated stitches and a fluid fabric. We only have a few skeins available so stop by before too late!
We’re so happy to get more Freia Ombre Sport
yarn in stock and add some lovely tonal shades in denim, icy blue, and a soft thistle. I think quite a few of us will be sporting Wurm Hats this winter. If you haven’t seen our sample, come try it on!
What else can be knit with this lovely ombre yarn?
- Have you seen the Inspira Cowl? Ravelry has several examples knit with Freia and they are stunning,
- The Radiance Shawlette uses a single skein and sets off this yarn beautifully,
- Or how about the Harmonic Curves Tam? Knit with the Freia and Frog Tree Alpaca Sport, this tam promises to be both unique and toasty warm.
Got some other ideas? Drop us an email and we’ll post your suggestions.
