The Maharani Silk Wrap

The time has come to finally embrace spring knitting! Here in Boston, we'll have a high of 57 degrees today. After such a brutal winter, I could not be more excited. What better way to get inspired for spring knitting than to feature the beautiful Maharani Silk Wrap pattern by Noble Knits. This wrap uses only 1 skein of our sparkly and bright Maharani silk yarn- miraculously! The pattern calls for size 17 needles, so the finished texture is super open and drapey. I love the way it almost looks like a fishing net. Most excitingly this pattern is free when you purchase Maharani Silk on their site. Find it right here. Ours is knit up in colorway Firework.

Maharani Yoga Sock Pattern

posted by: Amy Small in leg warmer patterns, maharani silk

I've been spotting yoga sock shapes everywhere and dreaming of our own Knit Collage version. I adore their cute shape with cut outs for your toes and heel. Pattern designer Cheryl Kubat has helped us come up with our own version. She put a Knit Collage twist on them with a hint of sparkle in our Maharani Silk yarn and swoon-worthy tassels.  These socks are quick to knit up and will fit most because of the toe and heel openings. Shown here in colorway Deep Sea Wave. The pattern is now available as a PDF to purchase here. Photos by Meg Manion Silliker

New Crochet Collars by Lulu Loves

posted by: Amy Small in crochet necklaces, maharani silk

You may remember from last year, that I became obsessed with this beautiful crochet collar pattern by Emma of the popular crochet blog, Lulu Loves. I'd always been a little on the fence about crochet but after making one of these, I was in love and there was no turning back. I wear mine frequently, but more as a necklace than a collar with the button in back. In addition to the first collar she whipped up, she came up with 3 more that work beautifully in our Maharani Silk yarn. I love how intricate the stitches are on these and the contrast colors. The patterns are all available through Knit Crate as a kit with our yarn.

The Pippa Collar above, more details here on Ravelry.

The Lola collar, more info here.

 

And the original collar I made & fell in love with! This is a free pattern, more info here!

I must have made at least 6 of these, so quick and pretty!
