Free Pattern Friday

Stephanie (the owner of Frabjous Fibers) just put out a hat pattern for their worsted mini skein kits.
The pattern, Latitude Lines, is a free download.
Make striped, slouchy hats for everyone in the family! Sized from toddler on up to adult large, not a head in your household will go cold when the temperature drops.
We like to use Wonderland Yarns Color Morph or Down the Rabbit Hole Mini Skein Packs for a gradient from the simple ribbed brim to the top.
Each mini skein pack can make two toddler or child hats, or an adult and child hat, and you’ll work them up in no time in March Hare worsted!
We have great colours in stock...


We have a new yarn in the store. Eco + from Cascade. There are 8 colours on the shelf with more coming late next week.
Eco+ is 100% Natural Peruvian Wool. Eco+ is the colorful version of our popular Ecological Wool® with a fabulous range of stunning solid colors. Soft and wearable, this wool lends itself to either garments or felting. With amazing, big, generous skeins, it's perfect for all sorts of garments like cardigans, pullovers and blankets.
