Using American Made…

So the pattern you will see below is “Barley” by Tin Can Knits. I love this pattern because I really want to showcase the color work, but still hold my customer’s interest. I think the designer for Tin Can Knits did a great job accomplishing both tasks. Of course, I still have to finish knitting. The pattern calls for a worsted weight yarn, but I decided to use the sport weight in our Wonderwolle (100% Wool, Single Ply, smooth hand). To compensate for the gauge difference, I just chose to cast on more stitches. I think this works just fine. Take note that I also use US 6 to cast on even thought the yarn could handle a US 5 and I opted to use a US 7 for the body of the hat since my 8’s are all busy with other hat projects.

Yarn Type: Wonderwolle Lanaloft Sport
Color: Remains of the Day
Brand: The Sheepwalk
Yardage: 220

We are honored to now be selling The Sheepwalk Hand Dyed in the Merino 600 at Klose Knits Urbana. You might say that Brigitte is one of my many German soul mates who in passing spent a little time at Suzoo’s Wool Works. She needed some fresh perspective like all of us. So I sent her home with a few patterns we love at Suzoo’s, a skein of Merino 600 and my hand knit “Iron Maiden” (Pattern by Maiden Brooklyn). I felt that there was no sense in just telling how much we like the yarn. Let the samples speak for themselves. You can see Iron Maiden and our yarn at:
