The Patterns in Knit & Crochet Club

Knit Pattern

The Cedar Drift Scarf by Sweet Pea and Sparrow is a cozy and classic piece that will keep you warm all winter long. It features an intricate cabled panel in the center with simpler winding cables on either side. Whether you're an experienced knitter or this is your first foray into cables, you're sure to enjoy every stitch just as much as you'll enjoy wearing your squishy and warm masterpiece.

Crochet Pattern

Michelle Muskett designed the Gatsby Cushion inspired by the elegance of the 1920s. This pillow cover uses textured stitches to achieve the art-deco look that draws inspiration from martini glasses. Perfect for lounging with and listening to your favorite records, this project is fun to make and even more fun to use.

The Patterns in Sock Knit & Crochet Club

Knit Pattern

Dance the night away in these adorable Runaround Socks from Laura Fahlin. Featuring a scalloped fold-over cuff and delicate cloverleaf lace, these socks don't take much yarn at all to achieve a stunning look. You'll want to take off your shoes and start dancing to show off your fashionable feet.

Crochet Pattern

We're head over heels in love with the Vintage Jukebox Socks from Mommy Loves Yarn. With innovative side-to-side construction that lends a comfy stretch to the stitches, these socks are thick and sturdy, just in time for the cold winter months. Each sock is worked in rows and seamed to form a tube, giving them a knit-look finish, and includes directions on modifying them for the perfect fit.
