Cotton Cashmere & FREE Patterns!

One of our favorite summer yarns is Cotton Cashmere by Rowan. This lightweight yarn feels wonderful, knits up beautifully and comes in an array of gorgeous colors. It’s 85% cotton and 15% cashmere, perfect for cool summer nights.


Ready to start a new project? Rowan is currently offering hundreds of its patterns for FREE, in Cotton Cashmere and many of its other yarns. Search by yarn, skill level, technique or category (such as clothing or accessories) and stock up on your pattern collection!

We also love this new pattern by Churchmouse Yarns, available for FREE on their website:


This quick knit is edged with a lacy shell motif and textured with garter stitch ribbing. It’s an engaging knit that’s as fun to knit as to wear!


We’re currently open, but please check our website for the most current days and hours. Due to weather and road conditions, our hours of operation can change. We’re happy to assist you via phone and email, and offer curbside pick-up, as well as local delivery (depending on location).

Happy knitting!
