This fun crochet project is made up of sections which use different stitches or combinations of stitches. Linda is using five colors of Modern Cotton. 

Pattern: Nightshift by Andrea Mowry
Yarn: Akari by Noro
Linda is working on a pattern that feels like an old friend. We never get tired of a good thing and Nightshift is an amazing shawl that you will come back to over and over. What a great way to try a new yarn - knitting a pattern you love, and one that never disappoints!

Pattern: Anakhoreo by Taigia Hilliard
Yarn: Practically Perfect Sock by Emma's Yarn
This sweet baby dress is worked from the top down and features a cable down the middle and a full skirt. This is a beautiful baby knit that will be passed down from baby to baby! The pattern comes in sizes from newborn to 5T.

Extended Hours and Sit & Knit!

Starting November 4th, Bayou Yarn Shoppe will have extended hours. We will be open until 7pm on Thursdays only. 

 In the last year and a half we have had to limit the number of people in the shop and therefore could not allow anyone to sit and knit. With the improvement in COVID numbers and the relaxation of restrictions we are now able to invite you to join us during the day to knit!
