Free Pattern Friday – Jean Jacket

It’s Free Pattern Friday!

Today we have the Jean Jacket, knit in Fibra Natura denims.

This design was generously shared with us from Laurel Murphy. Thanks, Laurel!

There are some sweet details in this jacket, including waist and shoulder shaping. My favorite detail added by Laurel are the reverse stockinette stitch triangles on the front and back yoke sections.

These subtle bits of texture give a nod to western wear, while keeping the overall look of this jacket modern, versatile, and so wearable.

Denims is a fantastic yarn for transitional seasons. It is made of 70% cotton and 30% wool, giving it both breathability and warmth. And because it is a bulky weight yarn, projects don’t take forever, either.

Available in 6 denim washes, you can find just the right shade to go with your favorite pair of jeans.

Free Pattern Friday – Denim Tee

It’s Free Pattern Friday!

denims tunic 1 blogToday, the Denim Tee in Fibra Natura denims.

denims tunic quarter sleeve blogA bit of a tee, a bit of a tunic with its split hem, this A-line top is a lovely piece.  The sleeves are stockinette, and the lace pattern covers both front and back.

One of the things I love about this piece is that even though it’s sized from Small to 3X, the largest size only takes 10 balls because it’s knit on size 10 1/2 (6.5mm) needles.  Since denims (109yds/100g) is a tape yarn, it’s not going to puff up and add a lot of bulk – a consideration for those of us with larger frames who like to knit with thick yarns.

There’s nothing more all-American than denim, so this may need to go into my queue for Labor Day knitting.  We hope you have a safe and festive holiday.

Happy crafting!

Free Pattern Friday – Acid Wash Pullover

It’s Free Pattern Friday!

denims Acid Wash Pullover blogToday, the Acid Wash Pullover in denims.

If there’s a yarn that has captured the imagination of our customers this season, it’s denims.  A bulky cotton/wool tape with hues ranging from sky blue to indigo, it’s perfectly on-trend for the current year.  Looking at this pullover, you can see why it’s so popular.

This bulky-weight pullover knits up on 6.5mm needles, but the cotton content means you won’t swelter.  Right twists and cables run the length of the body to a 1×1 ribbing at the hem and collar.  The contrasting sleeves are a nice touch, as is the lowered back edge.

Worked in pieces and seamed, this pattern is both written and charted and contains a schematic.  The right twists are easy as pie to do.

Having just finished a quick one ball project in this yarn, I’m eager for more.  This would fit the bill nicely.

Happy knitting!
