COPENHAGEN CALLING by Isabell Kraemer | LEIZU DK by Julie Asselin

Copenhagen Calling is a cozy cowl knit using 2 colors of DK weight yarn in 3 different (and easy) stitch patterns

______________________________________________

| Firefly Fibers Supplies |

Yarn: Leizu DK by Julie Asselin – 1 MC and 2 CC (see notes below on yarn usage...)

Pattern: Copenhagen Calling - available as Ravelry PDF

| Knitalong Finish Date :: Saturday, March 25th |

Finished projects purchasing the required yarn from Firefly Fibers during the KAL will be entered into a drawing for 1 of 2 Julie Asselin Tote Bags - just let us know you're purchasing yarn for the KAL, then bring your FO into the shop or post a photo in our Ravelry KAL thread on or before Saturday, March 25th (valid for online and in-store purchases). 

______________________________________________

Notes on yarn usage… our shop sample used only a small amount of the 2nd skein of the CC, so you may opt to use only 1 skein and knit a slightly more narrow version of the cowl, or get a 2nd skein of the CC to knit it as is – there are also some beautiful Ravelry projects that used more of the CC by adding a matching ribbed edge in the CC and they’re lovely. It’s up to you!

Happy Copenhagen Knitting!

Summer Knitalong

Loosely knit brioche rib in a laceweight yarn is one of my very favourite fabrics, thick, squishy, and warm but incredibly lightweight. the cowl is worked from end to end, beginning and ending with a stockinette tube that is twisted before the ends are grafted together. This half twist is confined to the stockinette section for a simple, interesting detail.
— Ysolda Teague

psst... don't let "brioche" make you nervous, it's a simple brioche rib (with instructions in the pattern) and the perfect introduction to brioche and the beautiful fabric it creates!

Fall Knitalong 2015

The Fibre Co | Cumbria Collection Accessories

“Inspired by England's stunning northwest region with its deep blue lakes and sheep-grazed fells and valleys, Cumbria is a lustrous blend of brown wool from rare breed sheep, fine S. American merino wool, and mohair. The resulting light brown-grey shade is then over dyed creating lovely deep saturated colors. Cumbria is a staple yarn, perfect for garments and accessories alike.”

The Cumbria Collection was designed especially for Cumbria and the accessories are wonderful for trying out The Fibre Co’s new yarn – and also knittinh up a few gifts since you can knit one of each design for our knitalong.
