What’s Hot at Twill

Not quite sure what to knit? Want to join in on some of the fun at the shop? Here's what's hot right now: The Mīlēt Mittens are a recent innovative pattern from Ysolda Teague, one of our favorite designers. The Fair Isle is engaging and beautiful, and we love this project so much that we are making kits for it! You can purchase these through our website or in the shop. We love the Molly Scarf (so much so that we put it on the Christmas in July list!) and we think you will, too! The sample at the shop was knit with Noro Tennen, but the pattern pairs very well with other variegated or self-striping yarns such as Ella Rae Huenique and Katia Paint. With just four rows--well, really just two rows each repeated twice--this makes a great first short-row project. The Fiddlehead Mittens are a delightful sport-weight project suitable for adventurous colorwork beginners who have previously done some stranded knitting. Sandy knit her pair in Rowan Felted Tweed, and we have kits for sale through our website and in the shop. For $55, you get your choice of a main color of Felted Tweed, your choice of 5 10-gram mini-skeins for the contrast colors, and some luxuriously soft yarn for the lining. For knitters who aren't in the mood for cables or advanced colorwork, Parnell is an ultra-chic striped pullover that is worked flat, and is the most beginner-friendly of the Felted Tweed KALs. Need a quick-to-knit project? The beginner-friendly Venetian Blind capelet uses just two skeins of Noro Kureyon for a super-bulky, colorful capelet.
