Campfire Flames Cowl

Campfire Flames Cowl

by The Woolly Badger

The Campfire Flames cowl is inspired by the very thing after which it’s named; the curving shapes of a campfire.


Reach for the Sky Hat

by Mary Beth Kelso

The hat inspired by tree branches—swaying in the wind, criss-crossing, reaching for the sky. Versatile design for all genders and ages.

Gently flowing pullover

Gently Flowing Pullover

by Snickerdoodle Knits

The Gently Flowing Pullover is a stockinette circular yoke pullover with short rows that create a curvature in the body shaping. This curvature, inspired by the gentle flow from one phase of life to the next, is emphasized with the use of a contrasting color and a round of decorative eyelets.

Pumpkin Spice Socks

by KarenBDesigns

Pumpkin Spice Socks are knitted in sport weight yarn, cuff down with afterthought heel construction. The leg & foot are knitted in 2 contrasting colors using the mosaic technique to give the pattern. The great thing with mosaic is you are knitting with 2 colors but only using 1 at a time.

Sycamore scarf

Sycamore Scarf

by Gourdgeous Knits

Elegant yet cozy, the Sycamore Scarf is an extra-wide scarf that can be worn multiple ways and pairs well with any attire for all occasions. Plus, it’s reversible! The stitch motif is inspired by the intricate, irregular texture of the bark of a tree.

Maple Seed Skirt

by Fig & Filament

The Maple Seed Skirt is a twirly circle skirt full of ruffles and volume. Both functional as a skirt and fun as a whirling device, the Maple Seed Skirt mimics the whimsical whirligig shape of a helicopter seed.

Yarn Information

All yarn for issue was generously provided by Malabrigo Yarn. This issue features Malabrigo Yarn Sock, Arroyo, and Rios bases in colors Siri, Sunset, Choco, Glazed Carrot, Archangel, Glitter, and Legend.

We were elated when Malabrigo said “yes!” to our request for yarn support. Malabrgio Yarn generously provided all the yarn to bring the first four issues to life. We were so happy to feature their beautiful hand dyed yarns that have become such a well-known staple in yarn shops around the world, and we were excited to create a year of color from their yarns. Each issue features colors representative of the season, but looking at the colors from the four issues together reveals a complete circle of color, with each issue’s colors blending into the next, and Issue 4 looping back to connect with Issue 1.

In case you aren’t already familiar with Malabrigo Yarn, here’s what they share in the “About Us” section of their website:

“We are a family-owned yarn company located in Uruguay and Peru and we have developed a line of Hand-Dyed yarns of incredible softness and wonderful color variations. Our products are made out of the softest fibers available and inspired by nature, as well as landscapes, places, art and day-to-day life. This is what we try to represent when naming our 21 yarn varieties and the range of over 400 colors they come in.

“We produce yarn because we are passionate about it. We believe in the pleasure of knitting with high-quality, carefully designed, subtly dyed yarns and in the joy of wearing what is created with them.

“Our wish is to continue developing yarns and colors to inspire people all over the world and, in return, be inspired by them.”

Malabrigo Yarn is stocked in yarn shops around the world.
