Furry Oomph

Our friends at Churchmouse have a beautiful new pattern knit in Rowan’s Soft Boucle.

This free pattern is simply a big, straightforward stockinette stitch rectangle with fun fringe on either end. It’s the perfect project for both newer knitters and more accomplished knitters who’re in the mood for something nice and soothing—it’s especially great to relax with between more complicated projects! And the finished wrap is equally elegant thrown around your shoulders or over the back of a chair.

For this Simple Stockinette Wrap, we used fluffy, fuzzy Rowan Soft BouclĂ©! A clever concoction of cotton, alpaca, merino wool, and polyamide, this chunky-weight yarn is soft on soft on soft. It brings furry oomph to even simple stockinette!

You can download the pattern on Churchmouse’s website

Boucle yarn is such a favourite for autumn and winter, adding texture to any knit. This chunky version is blended from cotton, alpaca, Merino wool and polyamide, knitting up quickly on 6mm needles to create a light, but warm fabric.


I took this from the Modern Daily Knitting website.

Field Guide No. 16 is coming. (We should have it next week)

It is a stunner. When we look at Kaffe Fassett’s designs for this Field Guide, it feels like we’ve caught all the color and light and joy of that February day, in a little book that will take us to really beautiful places in the coming weeks.

Many of you jumped in on Field Guide No. 13: Master Class and loved it. You know what we’re talking about when we say that it’s easy to get lost in his ideas about color and pattern.

Well, get ready—there’s more where that came from.

And for everybody just discovering this brilliant designer, we say: just you wait. There is so much to look forward to. 

If you missed the thirteenth Field Guide, here are a few pictures.

I can’t wait to see what Kaffe has in store for us. 

Good news - we should be seeing the new Mindful needles from Knitters Pride next week. We will have full sets of interchangeable needles as well as individual tips in sizes 3mm - 12mm.

Lucy has decided that she wants to sit on the landing again. Boscoe is blocking her from getting there.
