In spite of winter’s last fierce gasp, we’ve been dreaming of spring – beginning to order our lighter weight cottons, browsing spring-inspired patterns and digging out some WIPs that have been languishing in our knitting baskets since the temperatures dropped.

There have been requests through our Ravelry Group and in store for another KAL / CAL.

As we’re very fond of a lightweight cardi to throw on over our summer dresses or a pretty top to go over linen pants, we thought that might be a good project for a Tangled Yarns Spring KAL / CAL.

We’ve put together a few pattern suggestions that have caught our eyes over the past weeks and months, but we’d love you to email us with any others you might have noticed.

We’ll publish your suggestions next week.

Brown Sheep

Although we find our
Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece is a popular choice all year round, it is certainly an even stronger favourite as it starts to warm up.

With the 80% cotton / 20% wool composition and extensive colour collection, it is a great transition yarn.

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Maureen has been making the most of the cold and dreary weather over the past few days, finishing two of her winter projects which I’m sure will keep her warm when she heads to Europe in November!

First up is Winter Trails hat by Alana Dakos in our Berroco Ultra Alpaca.
(This project languished for so long as Maureen had to work out where she was at in the pattern!)


Smitten by her first, she turned out another Simple Sprinkles, also in Berroco Ultra Alpaca.



It is such a great pattern, and nice and cosy in this yarn, not to mention a great stash buster. Maureen has used several Ultra Alpaca leftovers from her previous projects.

Kim has just finished another stunning shawl, You’re Beautiful in Ella Rae Lace Merino. I can’t wait until our next colourful shipment of Ella Rae Lace Merino hits the store; it is such a lovely yarn to work with and a great weight for the coming seasons.




After seeing all of the amazing shawls that Kim knits, her son requested something for him. These socks are in our Zauberball and the pattern is Derrin’s, Learn to Knit Socks Class Project.


After a few false starts with the cast on (loooooong cast on, laceweight yarn….eek!), Liz won the battle and finished this beautiful Baya by Mindy Wilkes in Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock and Cashsilk Lace.



Also off the needles for Liz (another of her holiday trip finished projects) is the bright and zingy Ashburn by Melanie Berg.



Anita fell in love with Armande when she first saw it and thought it was a perfect match for the sunny yellow Ultra Alpaca that she’d been eyeing. It’s finally come together as a lovely slouchy cardi, just perfect for these final days of winter.
