Holiday Knitting Ideas- Part 3

We hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend.  If you are like many folks you did some eating with friends or family, some shopping, maybe watched some football, and of course knitting!!  In case you need inspiration for your next knitting project check out our fun River Valley Hat. 

River Valley Hat
There are 5 "Just One Ounce" skeins of yarn used in this slightly slouchy textured hat. These yarns are Mountain Colors Mohair, Mohair Loop, Merino Ribbon, Wooly Feathers and Missoula.  Missoula is ONLY available as a "Just One Ounce" yarn.  Yarn stores have been stocking up on kits containing these 5 yarns for our Long Beach Scarf design but if you have the kit you could make this hat with the yarn instead of a scarf!!! OR buy two and make both projects!

Contact your yarn store or Mountain Colors (406-961-1900) for information on how to buy your Just One Ounce kit for the River Valley Hat.  Feel free to share this pattern (click link).  Happy knitting!

Holiday Knitting Ideas--Part 2

Woven Stitch Cowl

The second in our series of holiday knitting projects is a cowl knit with our new 100% merino wool, Monarch.  Monarch is a thick/thin yarn in a heavy worsted weight and it knits up into a super soft fabric.  This cowl only takes 1 skein of yarn and makes a wonderful snuggly neck warmer.

The pattern link is below and you are welcome to share the pattern with anyone.  I am trying a new way of linking to the pattern...if you have any trouble at all opening the file please let me know via email.

Holiday Knitting Ideas-- The first in a series

We are planning to share a series of patterns that we hope will inspire you for any holiday knitting you hope to complete.  These are going to be small, quick projects!!

The first one is Lacey Jeannette Wristers, which as the name suggests uses 1 skein of our cashmere/silk yarn, Jeannette.  It is super soft and oh so nice against the skin.  These wristers have a lace panel on the back of the hand and picot edging at the top and bottom.  Two sizes are available.  For those who aren't comfortable knitting lace you could just leave out the lace and knit these in stockinette stitch.

Feel free to share this with your friends!! Just use the little print button that shows up under the pattern box and it should print out for you!!  There is also a gray button in the bottom right corner of that box and you can enlarge to full screen mode, then right click on your mouse and download the pattern!!
