Craftsy Is Back

First, it was Craftsy. Then when it was Bluprint. Now it’s Craftsy again. Craftsy, with much of its original allure, is back thanks to TN Marketing who purchased Craftsy assets back in July. Head to craftsy.com to sign up for a monthly or annual membership to gain access to Crafty’s robust catalog of fiber arts, cooking, and art tutorials (previously purchased classes will be restored to customers’ accounts). New classes will begin filming as soon as it is safe to gather again to connect makers with expert instruction and plenty of inspiration.

CAST ON: Folklore by Amy Gunderson

Inspired by Taylor Swift’s outfit on the cover of her Folklore album, Folklore is a bottom-up cardigan that features a deep-v, three-button closure, and all-over cables. With positive ease and lots of texture, this is a cardigan that will give you all the vintage feels with its contrasting edging and general grandpa vibes. Want it to look a little more like Taylor’s? Add some silver star patches to the elbows.
