Let Carol Feller help take your brioche to the next level. The instructor has just released a series of online tutorial videos (18 to be exact) that walk you through every step of knitting a top-down brioche cardigan. In easy-to-follow lessons, you will learn all the intricacies of the sweater construction, including working buttonholes and fixing mistakes. Watch the videos at your own pace, wherever you knit best.



The new Solidarity Swap, birthed out of the recent Instagram conversations surrounding race, is accepting sign-ups for their Pattern and Yarn swaps through February 28th. An initiative started by a group seven impassioned knitters including @tyneswedish and @geordieknitss, the Solidarity Swap aims to celebrate the work of makers from underrepresented groups, especially BIPOC, and embrace diversity by connecting those who want to get to know each other. Once sign-ups are closed, the group moderators will pair people together and the two will swap yarn or patterns per the swap guidelines. With more than 500 knitters signed up to swap, we have a feeling this initiative is going to be a good one!



Dragon Hoard Yarns has released their free Everyday Slouchy Beanie and to celebrate is hosting a KAL. The looks-good-on-everyone hat holds two strands of yarn together – one fingering weight merino with one lace weight mohair – to create a no-rib, slouchy hat. The lightweight hat will be a go-to as the weather transitions to warmer temps. The KAL will be hosted through April 31st and there will be prizes.


CAST ON: Breaking Plaid by Carissa Browning

We have a feeling plaid is about to have its fashion moment, which is why we’re excited to cast on Carissa Browning’s new Breaking Plaid cowl. With two contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn this bandana-style cowl combines double knitting and double-stranded (“marled”) garter stitch techniques to create a reversible plaid/gingham fabric. The pattern includes modifications notes for a loop cowl, a triangular shawl, a scarf, a washcloth, or a blanket, so there’s something for everyone in this pattern.
