Tunisian Crochet Yarn Folk

I haven't cast on yet, but I did purchase two new patterns (the Kraken Cowl and Curl), and there is yarn pulled off the shelves and sitting on the table, sorely tempting me!

Current [NEW] open hours are Monday - Thursday, 7am-3:30pm, Friday 8:30am - 5pm and Saturdays, 9am-4pm.

In-store shopping: masks are REQUIRED for all guests over age 2. Thanks for your help in keeping my business open to the public!

...to anticipate


If you saw last week's plot twist announcement, regarding the Berroco Lanas Trunk Show, there have been further developments, and we are back *ON* with those garments, and once they arrive, will have them until November 22nd!

We also received two back ordered colors of Berroco Dulce--silver and onyx. I recently wore the Felice cardigan sample, and it is SO cozy. You can find the complete Dulce design collection here.yarnfolk dividing line (2).png

Tunisian Crochet combines the structure of crochet fabric with the look of a knit or woven fabric. We just added Knitter's Pride Dreamz Interchangeable Tunisian Crochet Hooks, so I put together a Ravelry bundle of Tunisian Crochet designs--whether you're a crocheter or a knitter, if you've been wanting to expand your skillset, there are some lovely patterns here!yarnfolk dividing line (2).png

Kelbourne Woolens has released a fun array of free patterns over the years, notably the Year of Hats (Ravelry link), twelve hats using worsted weight yarns all featuring different techniques. Last week, they introduced the Easy Germantown Handwarmers on their blog, and they immediately caught my attention as an easy gift idea--whether you're an experienced knitter who needs quick, auto-pilot projects, or whether, perhaps, knitting is a new pandemic skill.  Each handwarmer is knit flat, and is about the size of a generous swatch. You need only to know how to knit and purl, cast on, and bind off, and there are two options for joining the edges of the square to make the mitt. I experimented to see what they would look like in a variety of worsted weight yarn options--from left to right, Berroco Ultra Wool, Malabrigo Rios, and Studio Donegal Soft Donegal. All three were knit on size 7 needles, and the Soft Donegal mitt is slightly larger--because the yarn is closer to an aran weight than worsted. Each weighs less than 25g, which means you can make TWO PAIR from a single skein of yarn!
