March Free Pattern of the Month

You saw this version in our March e-letter:

Now here's our store sample, knit out of Cascade 128 Tweed:

This shrug looks great and knits up quickly in tons of yarns - like the Cascade 128 or 128 Tweed, Lamb's Pride Bulky, Baby Alpaca Grande, Encore Chunky. And when you buy the yarn at 10% off, you get the pattern for free. The shrug is a great transitional clothing item - perfect for warmer winter days and chilly spring evenings.

We also have several other shrug patterns that have been almost as popular as our free pattern. This gorgeous cabled shrug is from one of the Aslan Trends' Seasons Change Vol 2 booklet, and is knit in super-bulky weight yarn. The booklet also includes a lighter-weight yarn version.

This shrug below is from Jo Sharp's Knit Issue 2 and is knit out of a strand of yummy Jo Sharp mohair. This is the perfect garment to cover the shoulders at a summer movie or air-conditioned restaurant.

If you haven't already done so, call the store at 215-242-1271 or stop by and add your email address to our monthly newsletter list. We will never share your information with anyone else, and you'll get our fabulous monthly newsletter, filled with news about store specials, classes, Knit-Alongs and general goings-on at the store.
