Featured Pattern
Hand-dyed sock-weight (fingering) yarn is a perennial favorite here at Yarnivore! But what to do if you're not a sock knitter? Or maybe you have enough socks for now? We found this beautiful shawl pattern, Very Valerie (FREE on by Kay Jean Designs. It's a lovely mosaic pattern. Looks hard? Don't worry! Mosaic is easy! All you do is knit, purl, and slip stitches - totally doable! And it makes a lovely warm fabric that'll keep you cozy as the nights get colder.

The Tip Jar

Do you want to wear your handmade hats, but not sure how to wear them and still look cute? Unless you actually NEED the cap pulled down for warmth, wear it with some of your hair showing around your face. If your hair is long, let your hair hang down by your jaw/neck. If you put it up, make sure some tendrils are showing. Short hair? Let your bangs show a bit.

And of course, the more your wear hats, the more comfortable you get with them. It's great to have something to fall back on on days when it's a little chilly or when your hair is just not behaving!

All classes are currently on hold, due to the San Antonio & Bexar County joint Stay Home/Work Safe order.
