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 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.
Over the last few years, knitting has been brought up in tennis conversations; did you notice? In 2011, Conor Niland of Ireland, served up a few caps for the innocent hat project. A woman was spotting knitting at a center court match during Wimbledon in 2012. This year, Red Barn Yarn is happy to continue this trend with the Wimbledon Shawl!
Found in Love of Knitting’s Knit Accessories issue, the Wimbledon Shawl is composed of three sections. Each represents a different element in a tennis match, making this piece a creative way to show your love of this classic sport. Click here to be taken to Love of Knitting’s website, where you can purchase the issue that contains the Wimbledon Shawl.
This shawl can also be done in red, white & blue, if your tournament of choice is the US Open! Red Barn Yarn has put together kits for this pattern (yarn only!). If you are interested in ordering a kit, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Payment is processed through PayPal at this time.
