T-Shirt Goodness + Free Pattern Alert

January 5th, 2011 by Be Sweet

Last year our T-Shirt yarn made quite a splash! There’s nothing else like it on the market and when we first started playing around with the idea and seeing samples, we were very excited!

Our friend over at Bluebird Yarn, Sophie Kurnik designed the Blue Bird Tote Bag and the Blue Bird Bucket Bag, both available on Ravelry.

Not too long ago I got an email from our fearless leader, Nadine Curtis telling me T-Shirt’s hot new cousin was in town. Readers, meet Striped T-Shirt! This super cool yarn has all the same properties of our popular T-Shirt, with a twist. Imagine all the interesting things you can knit and crochet! Bags, rugs, shrugs, cowls… The possibilities are endless! We’re very excited!

A few of you were asking about the pattern we blogged about a couple of weeks ago from our friend, Lea over in Finland for the Magic Ball Cowl. Lea was kind enough to pass it on!
