Free Pattern Friday – Brambleberry Hat and Mitts

It’s Free Pattern Friday!
Brambleberry Hat and Mitts
Today, we have a charming set in Saki Bamboo (462yds/100g), a newer member of the Wisdom Yarns family. Saki Bamboo is a blend of superwash merino, nylon, and bamboo. We predicted it would be popular for socks, but it’s become a yarn of choice for shawls and accessories, too. And no wonder, with colors this pleasing!

The Brambleberry Hat and Mitts each can be completed with one ball, two for the set. Both are worked in the round with a honeycomb pattern for an added dimension of texture.

Wouldn’t these be perfect to wear on a drab day to add a pop of color? What a rewarding project.

Free Pattern Friday – Comfort Bargello Shawl

It’s Free Pattern Friday!
Bargello Shawl in Classic Shades
Today, we want to give you a knitted hug. The Comfort Bargello Shawl wraps you up warm and cozy in soft Classic Shades (100g/197yds).

The design is from Patty Nance, the author of Bargello Knits, a book of designs incorporating self-striping and solid yarn to beautiful effect. This design is no exception. It’s knit from one side of the triangle to the opposite point, with the added fringe as a crowning touch.

Classic Shades is a great choice for this design. The coordinating Classic Shades Solids make this an easy pattern to customize in terms of color, so you can design your own knitted hug.

Many thanks to Patty Nance for such a gorgeous design!
