There are blue skies ahead!

Blue Sky Fibers has added two new colors to their popular line of Woolstok Bundles. The two new colors “Fire & Ice” and “Bramble & Fig” are accompanied by three new patterns that will brighten any winter day. We love the new patterns so much that we have crafted kits for each one to make shopping the collection effortless.

The Tiverton Cowl by Mary Pranica is a fun & straightforward cowl that has colorful, shifting bands of color. The shifting bands are knit using well placed slipped stitches that create the effect. The cowl is knit using one 50g skein of Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok & one Woolstok Bundle. The kit comes with colors Grey Harbor & Bramble & Fig, but there are many other combinations that could be put together. The cowl requires a size US 8, 24” circular needle (not included in kit).

The Ellensburg Cowl by Alyssa Rasmussen has a similar color combination, but goes with a darker base color & longer cowl style. This textured beauty uses knits, purls, slipped stitches & color changes to create an unique cowl that can be worn long or doubled. The photo sample & kit feature one, 50g skein of Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok in Storm Cloud & one Woolstok Bundle in Bramble & Fig. You will also need a size US 8, 32” circular needle (not included in kit).

The final “topper” in the collection is the sporty Tahoe Hat by Michael Vloedman. The hat is reversible & reminds us of a multi-hued sky. Knit holding two strands of worsted weight yarn together, the painterly effect is created with strategic color changes & the wonderful knit stitch. For this knit, you will need size US 10.5 & 11, 16” circular needles & US 11 double point needles (not included in kit).

Pick up one of the new kits with a few clicks or put together your own color combination with the extensive selection of Woolstok 50g & Woolstok Bundles! We also have all of the Blue Sky kits on display in our brick & mortar store.

Happy Knitting!
