Popular Knit & Crochet Patterns
We know that inspiration can come from anywhere, we also know that the yarn itself plays a huge role in sparking inspiration. Sometimes it’s the color of the yarn, which holds your gaze and gets those ideas going! At times it’s the subtle sheen of a yarn that allows you to imagine its drape and how the stitch definition will perfectly accentuate intricate stitches. Knowing the fiber content of a yarn also helps in deciding what your next project will be, a blanket, a sweater, or a hat! The possibilities are endless, and the creativity is all yours. That’s why we work hard to create yarns to suit any project and make sure that your favorite brands like, Bernat, Caron, Patons, Lily Sugar’n Cream and Phentex are readily available at the touch of a button!
