Falling for Fall

We have fallen for fall – the colors, scents and even the chill in the air that makes you pick up the needles and hooks after the summer hiatus. Red Barn Yarn® is ready to be the yarn in your next project!

Autumn Wrap

Autumn Inspirations immediately comes to mind. This pattern is available for you to purchase on Ravelry and add directly to your library. Memories of growing up in Ohio, and watching the Maple leaves turn each year was the genesis for this design. The shawl uses one Uniquity and coordinating colors: Plum Rosa, Liquid Amber, and Coral Bells on the Red Barn Yarn® Worsted base.

Part of the fun of starting a new project is selecting the colors! These patterns are not only fun to knit or crochet, but also allow for creating a truly one-of-a-kind item! The Fall 2014 Love of Knitting included the Letterman Scarf in Red Barn Yarn® Powder River. On Ravelry, we spotted the Crystalline Cowl project knit by angrymeerkat with Red Barn Yarn® Chunky Sparkle. What a great use for any of the variegated colorways! The Mountains Cowl, a free crochet pattern available via Ravelry download, would also nicely showcase your favorite base and colorway(s) of Red Barn Yarn® Worsted.

We encourage you to shop from your Local Yarn Shop first; if you are not located near a Red Barn Yarn® stockist you now have the option to shop through our site. On RedBarnYarn.com shop our entire collection of bases and colorways for the yarn of your heart’s desire, add it to your cart and check out via PayPal.

Spotlight on Red Barn Yarn Powder River

Red Barn Yarn Power RiverUnlike other bases, which start out basically a soft white, Powder River yarn starts as a lovely two-ply of soft, natural colors (camel and soft gray). The colorways translate into wonderful gray tones of the Red Barn Yarn colors,  creating a totally different palette  from which to work, and knitters will love the lofty, soft hand of this Mountain Merino and Alpaca blend.
