A Video How-To for our Sweet Ruffled Scarf


Our Sweet Ruffled Scarf is a satisfying quick knit, especially when you understand the ins and outs of picking up stitches for the ruffle. Nell shows you how simple it is to do in our video.

To make this soft, feminine scarf, you'll need two skeins of Malabrigo Worsted, a pair of US 7 needles and a pair of 47" - 60" US 8 circular needles. The pattern is free with your purchase of the yarn at Knitch.

A Quick Knit for Holiday Gift-Giving - The Lightning Cowl!

We call it Lightning Cowl because it's so quick to knit. And the results are astonishing. You'll just need one skein of Malabrigo Rasta, a 24" US 17 circular needle and some stitch markers. Oh, and the pattern, of course, which we will throw in with your purchase of the yarn! Make one for each of your best buddies and one for yourself. You've got the time -- we've got the yarn!

Overwhelmed (in a really good way) and VERY grateful!


There are so many of you to thank for your big response to our 100 Hats in 100 Days Project! You brought them in on your bikes; you brought them in on your walks. You sent them from far away; you knit them at our farm table. We just received at box of ten from Texas! And not long ago hats arrived from Portland, Oregon. There are several en route from Sweden. You are fabulous and you are spreading caring to many people this winter, who will be warmer for your loving efforts. In this season of thanksgiving, we thank you so very much -- every one!
