What's On Our Needles

Pattern: Zack Zack Scarf by Christy Kamm

Yarn: Mille Colori Baby by Lang Yarns


An impressive yet easy to knit scarf in the style of a great Italian designer. The chevrons are worked with single increases and decreases – no knots in your fingers trying to knit complicated double decreases and no double increases where the stitches get tight and hard to work with.

This pattern really shows of the beauty of Mille Colori yarn. Stop by today to choose yours!

Pattern: Linen Stitch Cowl by Carly Stipe

Yarn: Marmel by Ella Rae

This cowl is such a fun knit and the linen stitch is the perfect way to show off this beautiful marble yarn. 

Worked in the round, you’ll love how quickly it comes together and this colorway is perfect for LSU games!
