Free Pattern Friday December 23, 2011 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays

This week’s selection of free patterns come from knitter, designer, and blogger Julie Crawford over at

The Stockholm Scarf has been a customer favourite this year and great yarn choices for this project have included Manos Silk Blend (30 % Silk 70 % Wool) in both solid and space-dyed colours as well as hand-dyed Yellow Label DK from Tanis Fiber Arts (100% Superwash Merino Wool).

The second pattern is a comfortable slouchy cardigan with lots of interesting detail – worked in one piece from the bottom up.  Just recently published in the latest version of Knitty, Velvet Morning has attracted lots of attention and has already been queued-up more than 500 times on Ravelry.  If you love the look of this sweater but stranded colourwork isn’t really for you, Julie notes that it would also look great using only two colours (main colour + contrast colour).  The pattern recommends Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Aran Weight (100% Superwash Merino Wool) and we have a huge selection in stock.  It would also be gorgeous in SweetGeorgia’s Superwash Worsted (see yesterday’s post).
