It’s time for another fun month of our KNITCRATE Artisan Crate! We know you’re just as excited as we are about Fall being right around the corner and prime knitting season getting started (sorry, those of you in the opposite hemisphere – we can’t help it!) It’s still just a touch early for us to break out Pumpkin Spice lattes or scarves, though. But it’s jusr early enough to start planning knitting projects, right?
We picked two colors to fit with our Vintage theme: Mountie Mango, which is an incredibly flattering coral pink, and Bison, which is an olive-toned neutral.
Each Artisan Crate comes jam-packed with 3 balls of Sugar Bush’s extra fine super bulky merino wool in either of the colorways pictured. They also come with 4 sassy postcards by Red Fox Designs as well as one beginner Texto Cowl Pattern and one intermediate/advanced Avantage triangle scarf pattern. Scroll to take a closer look at this month’s goodies!
For extras this month, we’ve sent a set of four ‘punny’ animal greeting cards. It’s getting to that time of year where it seems like there’s always a need to send a little ‘thinking of you’ out into the mail, so we thought it would be fun to restock your shelves with some cute cards.
Of course, being chunky yarn, the patterns this month will be speedy knits. Both of them come custom-designed for us by Corinne Ouillon and are already in Ravelry:
Avantage, shown in the Mountie Mango, is a cozy shoulder wrap to toss on once the weather gets a little chilly. it can also be worn like a cozy bandana and tucked into the front of your coat – perfect for when you don’t want to deal with a scarf. A casual cable pattern gives it a great texture, too.
Texto is a chunky cowl with just the right amount of texture to keep you interested. The high relief stitches are just basic knits and purls and are very beginner friendly, plus you’ll learn new techniques, like a three needle bind off! The fabric is fully reversible so it’s almost like getting two cowls in one!
