Free pattern Friday June 7, 2013 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays, Knit-Alongs, Project Ideas

First of all, our apologies for the slow blogging week! What with 3 days of inventory, busy catch-up days in the store with our customers, and all sorts of other “life” stuff going on, things got away from Mona and I here over the last few days.  I think we’re back on track now.  First up, this week’s free pattern – Nae (see details below).
For those who have been asking about our June KAL (another casualty of this week’s schedule), we finally got round to making a decision about the project last night and will announce it first thing next week. Please note, the next KAL will run 2 months (mid-June thru mid-August) so don’t worry, there will be plenty of time to finish!

Nae, by Anat Rodan, is a beautifully simple shawl that lets the your yarn choice be the star of the show. The clean lines and reversible nature of this shawl make it a perfect choice for those coveted skeins of hand-dyed yarn you’ve been stashing.  The pattern calls for Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light which is stunning but we also think that for those wanting something a little cooler for the summer Handmaiden Sea Silk would make a gorgeous choice. Our SandnesGarn Mandarin Petit fingering weight cotton also has a beautiful sheen and provides a more economical option.  We have lots of all three of these yarns in stock at the moment so come on in and have a look!
Note: Anat has also made a matching hat pattern, Kozue, available to use any leftover yarn.
