400 yards of yarn is nothing to sneeze at, but it looks different depending on what weight of yarn you're looking at. It's not uncommon for fingering weight yarn to come in a single skein of over 400 yards of yarn, where you might find yourself buying 8 skeins (or more!) of super bulky yarn just to hit that 400-yard mark. Whether you have a special skein of sock-weight yarn for which you're looking for the perfect pattern, or you're <a target="_blank">practically drowning

"Hello knitters every where! I am back with another one of my classic, go-to shawl designs: a symmetrical shawl worked by repeating a general pattern. You can say it's a variation of one of my previous designs called "Sunflower Swirls Shawl", which I knitted using Caron's One Pound yarn. Just keep on knitting this rather simple pattern with your choice of aran yarn, and you'll be done in no time. Size customization: you can adjust the size to be bigger or smaller by repeating the general more
You may find yourself with 300 yards of yarn for any reason.

"Twisted Knit Headband is an easy and 1-2 hours project for beginners who would like to lean about cable twist.

If you find yourself with a skein (or ten) of gorgeous alpaca yarn, consider yourself lucky. Not only is it typically harder to come by than run-of-the-mill sheep's wool, but it's considerably more luxurious. Alpaca wool is anecdotally softer and cozier than even mohair or merino, but, naturally, the quality of the yarn makes all the difference. You may be wondering what to make with alpaca yarn, fearing wasting such precious (<a target="_blank">and expensive</a>) yarn. The
"Hi knitters everywhere! as promised, my second skirt design for the season is finally here! this time it's a maxi skirt, made with a mohair-looking yarn that I found and liked very much.

Though the United States may have separated from a parliamentary system hundreds of years ago, the people of the noble class continue to fascinate us. The <em>Harry and Meghan</em> docuseries on Netflix has reinvigorated that interest. We love telling our children stories about princesses, kings, and queens, and have more than a passing curiosity about England’s royal family. All of this goes to show that people like to feel special every now and then, and royalty is synonymous a
When you think of popular knitting patterns of years past, ponchos certainly had their time in the sun. One type of pattern that has never picked up quite as much steam is its younger sister, the capelet. Knitted capelet patterns, for the uninitiated, are essentially mini ponchos, which usually cover less of the body and serve to warm mainly the shoulders and upper arms. Sometimes they're knit with hoods, and sometimes with turtlenecks, but they all ultimately share the same quality of being a

"Try one more super easy and eye-catching hat that I knitted this winter. I like the main stitch pattern and I am sure you will like it too. While the crown is knitted in stockinet stitch it makes the hat look finished. If you do not like the crown you are welcome it to cover with fur or yarn pom pom.

"From the start, my mind was set on using this yarn for a simple design, which - in my opinion - is the best way to show the beauty of its color sequence. So, after several trials I came up with this crop top that is knitted from side to side, with a knit and purl only pattern. It’s a rather straightforward, knitted-in one-piece pattern, however, I hesitate to tag it as an easy level project due to the cast on and bind off steps when knitting the back and front parts. Otherwise, it is really

"Hi knitters everywhere! as a request from my youngest daughter, who loves form-fitting vests that she can wear over baggy shirts, I've made this blue knitted vest. This is my first time knitting a whole piece using rib pattern only, which in turn gives this garment enough elasticity to mold to the shape of the body. The style of this vest leans towards formal with a casual flare, making it the perfect attire to wear to the office or school. It is made in two pieces; front and back, from which
