The Drop Stitch Slouch Hat

posted by: Amy Small in hat patterns, maharani silk

We've been obsessed with dropped and open stitches for a long time now. Our newest hat design is a fresh take on that idea with drop stitch "runs" knit throughout it and a relaxed rolled edge. When knit up with our Maharani Silk yarn, you get a teeny glint of sparkle too. You'll only need 1 skein of this silk yarn- bonus! The pattern is now available as a PDF download here. We knit our sample up in the colorway Firework.

Crochet Market Bag

posted by: Amy Small in bag patterns, free patterns, maharani silk

As we head into warmer weather, I'm always on the lookout for new crafting inspiration.  On pinterest, I came across this adorable crochet market bag, which is just about the cutest thing ever!  Of course, we had to make one up in our yarn.  We picked our Maharani Silk which is has the littlest bit of sparkle in it.  The best part is that this pattern is free on ravelry (available here) and it only calls for 1 skein of our yarn! Happy crocheting!

Pic above is from the crochet blog All About Ami. The original inspiration!

Our version in Maharani Silk, colorway Witching Hour.

The Little Martha Shawlette

posted by: Amy Small in cowl & scarf patterns, maharani silk

Now that we're really in the swing of spring, I thought it would be the perfect time to revisit a crochet pattern we released last year that is still a favorite around here. The pattern is the Little Martha Shawlette by Susan Sheby and calls for 2 skeins of our Maharani Silk yarn.  The delicate stitch reminds me of those found on vintage crochet doilies but the shawlette shape is completely modern. Wear this as a bandana with the point in front or as a more traditional shawl over sundresses.  The yarn, with a little hint of sparkle, also adds a little bit of fun and fancy! The pattern is available on our site as a PDF download for $5 right here. The sample shown below is knit in colorway Firework.
