Dip your needles into Cast Away yarn!
Have you met our Cast Away yarn?! It has a fun cocoon-like texture that is chock full of hand carded fiber color. Go for the the full rainbow look with colorway Prism or take the more neutral approach with my forever favorite Amulet. Pictured below, a few of our favorite patterns to inspire you - many of them free or just one skein too :)
Perfect Slouch Hat Pattern
This hat has that perfect nonchalant slouchy shape that is so tough to come by. It is snug around your ears and slightly loose up top (but not too loose!) for ideal scrunching. This pattern knits up in our Cast Away yarn and is a beautiful way to show off this scrumptious yarn. Free pattern available here.
Snuggle Bear Mittens
These mittens, are a fun, fast knit and perfect for gifting! They are also warm and sure to keep your hands toasty all winter long! Pattern available here.
Wavy Feather Scarf Pattern
The Wavy Feather Scarf pattern combines our Cast Away yarn, with a subtle wavy pointelle stitch. The result is a luscious scarf that will actually get you excited about winter! The scarf is long and wide, perfect for wrapping around your neck as many times as you like. The pattern calls for 3 skeins of yarn but you could use 2 for a shortened version. The color shown here is Peachy Sparkle on our gorgeous Gabriele. Free pattern available here.
Modern Earflap Hat
Fall in love with our Cast Away yarn in this modern take on a traditional earflap hat. In this pattern, you'll hold two strands of our Cast Away yarn together, giving you the opportunity to try out some fun color combinations- like ours shown here made with colors Coconut Sparkle and Wildflower. Pattern available here.
Yarnicorn Cowl Pattern
The Yarnicorn Cowl is one super quick knit that is sure to make you feel a little magical when worn. This cowl is knit in our scrumptious Cast Away yarn. This yarn is chock full of color, texture, feels soft and warm when worn too. For a maximum yarnicorn look, we suggest knitting yours in our sample colors: Lagoon & Prism. Pattern available here.
Folk Song Cowl Pattern
There's something so magical about simple garter stitch, maybe it's all that lumpy bumpy goodness. The Folk Song Cowl let's our handspun yarn shine through in the garter stitch body and lengthy fringe that dangles down. This cowl is a distant cousin of our Keep Me Cozy Cowl. In the photos shown here the cowl is worn asymmetrically, which we love. However there is a center point (like in the Keep Me Cozy Cowl) so wear it any way you like. We knit ours in color Peachy Sparkle. Pattern available here.
