We are still recovering from a massive weekend with our triple class sessions on Saturday and we are gearing up for another yarn filled weekend!

With the school holidays upon us here in Queensland it has been delightful to see so many keen young creatives popping in to pick up supplies. The start of the holidays have certainly been wet, wet, wet….but ideal for knitting and crochet!

I thought I would include a few links for some patterns that may appeal to the younger knitter or crocheter.

Classes

Sunday will see another month arriving, July already! I have no idea where the months go at the moment.

We have a new series of Learn to Knit commencing on Thursday evening 12th July (6pm-8pm) and Learn to Crochet commencing Sunday 8th July 12noon-2pm.

Both of these classes are almost fully booked but there is a place or two remaining in each course.

We are excited to start our Pop Blanket Classes this month and continuing with them through August.

For those of you that missed our new class announcement….


POP! Blanket Class

POP Blanket has some very clever techniques ranging from a pinhole cast on, knitting in the round on double point needles or magic loop and then using short rows to shape the corners.

Putting the blanket together can be done by crocheting the squares together or seaming them together.

The wonderful designers from Tin Can Knits have given us permission to base a class on thei fantastic pattern!

*please note – all patterns are to be purchased from Tin Can Knits via Ravelry prior to the class.

From the designer –

This blanket is inspired by the bright, exciting and high-contrast graphics of comic books and Pop Art, and my love of polka dots in general. Mmmmmm…. who doesn’t love a good polka dot?!

I simply adore knitting with Noro: the joy and satisfaction of seeing what colour will come next never fails to please me.

If you would like to learn how to make your own POP Blanket and perfect all of these wonderful and very useful techniques join our class!!

POP! Blanket Class

Saturday 1pm – 3pm
21
st July, 28th July & 18th August

There is a two week break after the first two lessons to allow you to make some progress before coming back in the third week to start putting your blanket together.

$75.00 per person (3 week course) plus supplies

Requirements

Please note that this is an intermediate course.

Prior knowledge of how to cast on, knit, purl and cast off is required.


Supplies

POP Blanket pattern from Tin Can Knits on Ravelry.

Your blanket can be made any size desired.

When made to the gauge suggested the squares measure approximately 6.25″ square.

The sample blanket is baby blanket size, it measures 26″ x 32.5″ and is made up of 20 squares.

1 Square takes approximately 15 yards of Noro Kureyon and 20 yards of Cascade Yarns Eco Wool.

Noro Kureyon has 110 yards per 50 gram ball so each ball will yield approximately 7 circle centres. Cascade Yarns Eco Wool has 478 yards per 250g skein so each skein will yield approximately 23 squares.

Needles required are 5.5mm double points and/or circular needles as desired for knitting in the round.

We have plenty of lovely colours of
Noro Kureyon and Cascade Yarns Eco Wool in stock however they are both very popular yarns and can move quickly.

To avoid disappointment we suggest purchasing your yarn for the classes well prior to your first lesson. We are also happy to custom order in specific colours and quantities for your blanket prior to the classes.

Please contact us in store or tangled@tangledyarns.com.au to arrange a custom order.

On the needles at Tangled Yarns

Kim was instantly smitten with new Noro Magazine that we launched last Friday.

Come Monday morning she arrived back in the shop with a finished hat!

This is the Checkerboad Cap by Carol J. Sulcoski in our Noro Silk Garden in colours #211 & #341.

We have completely sold out of the Noro Magazine but a second shipment is on the way to us and should be here next week (with yet more of the beautiful Noro yarns!).

Last Sunday was such a dreary grey day that Derrin felt she needed a little sunshine. She had spied the Sunshine Scarf by Purl Soho and knew it had to be hers!

tangledYARNS

Derrin has used our Cascade Ultra Pima Fine, Cascade Heritage Silk & Biggan Design 4ply.

Also off the needles is a beautiful pair of sox to keep her toes warm in this chilly weather. The yarn is our Berroco Sox and the pattern is Basic Ribbed Socks by Kate Atherley.

Derrin is also working on a Calm Cowl by Suzana Davidovic inspired one of our lovely customers when she attended a class. The yarn is our Cascade 220 Superwash Sport.

tangledYARNS


This is an ideal first project for LTC students or any keen crochet beginner.

I have been working on some larger projects but did manage to whip up a quick little hat for one of my girls. The second hat is already on the needles as with most things I knit for the girls….there must be two!

tangledYARNS


This is Capucine by Adela Illichmanova. I have used a ball of Noro Taiyo (# 40) and a skein of Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky (#555) held together.

I have used a 5.50mm for the ribbing, then a 6.00mm for the garter and stocking stitch. To scale down the hat I have decreased and extra two times and knitted less stocking stitch before starting the crown shaping.

The fabric of the two yarns held together is lovely and dense, perfect for those cold windy winter days.

Now to finish hat number two!

  1. Hi,
    I have the Capucine pattern and have completed the rib edge and garter stitch and am about to start kitting in the round, but there are two versions as I see it from the photos. One continues with garter stitch and the version you have made, seems to be in stockinette/plain stitch for the in the round section. I would like to finish tomorrow, so that’s what I will be doing. Hope I’m on the right track?
    Looking forward to the finished product.
    Thanks
    Tina

  2. Oh dear late night Tour de France viewing is not good for knitting brain work…I’ve just realised this morning what a dopey question that is. It’s knit in the round for goodness sakes!! Excuse me while I just go and quietly finish a beanie 🙂
