March has been a great month for magazine and pattern releases. Yarn Loop is proud to present some of the best designs around, and Knitscene delivers again with a wearable collection of summer garments for young and modern women. Click any link to go directly to the item.
Knitscene Summer 2017 is full of 16 patterns including striped tops, tees, shorts, a tote, a slouchy hat, scarves and shawls made for the hot summer months. And if you start a project now, you can wear it for the entire season! (Images below from left to right: Rau Sweater by Quenna Lee, Kricka Top by Sherrie Kibler, & Meadow Tank by Carolyn Noyes.)
My personal favorite is the cover pattern. The Pivot Tank by Lana Jois is a gorgeous striped tank, built on Findley DK, a luxurious and affordably priced yarn made of Silk and Merino Wool. The ribbing details, stripes and bind-offs add beautiful details to an otherwise bland tank. If you are uncomfortable about your arms, simply throw a tee underneath for a chic and relaxed look. Look for this in a Magazine Kit next week in several different striped combinations on the fabulous Findley DK. (Image below)

Yarn Loop has been busy putting together pricing and yarns for the exceptional patterns in the latest issue of Knit.Wear. We are still adding kits, but these Magazine Kits are now available:
Amherst Pullover by Amanda Scheuzger is now available in Spud & Chloë Sweater. If you have never had the opportunity to knit with Sweater, now is a perfect opportunity. This is a strong and vibrant yarn with a great hand and excellent wear due to its organic cotton and superwash wool content. It is one of my favorite yarns since I am in the desert region of west Texas, and provides just the right amount of warmth after a warm spring day.
Chatham Pullover by Emma Welford is available in Malabrigo Arroyo or Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend. These yarns have distinctly different properties, but both will give a beautiful shine and subtle interest to the beautifully designed yoke sweater.
Hyannis Port Pullover by Bristol Ivy was released in Knit.Wear's special publication, Wool Studio, late in 2016. This design is the favorite among the superb patterns. The construction is quite advanced, but don't let that make you nervous! A little bit of piecing, and a bold stripe to pull attention to this detail make an extremely comfortable ready-to-wear garment.
While Yarn Loop will not have a booth at the DFW Fiber Fest, you can still find us at the show wandering around just like you! Look for the newly finished Yuki Jacket and the Yarn Loop t-shirts on 2 of the lucky ladies attending the show. Meet our principal in person, and introduce yourself. Let us know what you think and what you want so that we can make Yarn Loop even better.
