Hidden Falls Cowl
From our dear friend Crystal, this moebius style cowl is knit in a tube, twisted once and grafted together at the end. With this type of cowl all the floats are hidden on the inside and it is very easy to style. Knit with worsted weight yarn, this is a fun piece to mix and match colors, use up those scraps or mini skeins in your stash.
If you don't have plenty of colorful worsted scraps or mini-skeins in your stash, we've got you covered with Woolstok bundle kits from Blue Sky Fibers. You'll also need one 50g skein of Woolstok for the background color.
From Donna Higgins,
Sized for everyone in the family, this pattern is written for a closed mitten or fingerless as shown. Experiment with color and embellish as desired.
For this sweater, we're pairing you with Weepaca by Big Bad Wool. You'll just need 2 skeins for this project (1 skein of each color).
From Julie Weisenberger,
Resembling a cuddly bear cub, the Baby Bear onesie swaddles a precious little one in warmth and softness. Like a gentle hug, it’s the perfect way to welcome a special baby into the world. The pattern is a top-down, seamless raglan, with diagonal front opening. Snap tape is sewn inside the fronts for easy-access and practicality! The only seams are the crotch and underarms.
For this little bear, you'll need 285 to 570 yards of Weepaca from Big Bad Wool (that's 3-6 skeins).
From Nomad Stitches,
The Pattern (Crochet)
This one-skein wonder made with worsted weight yarn can be worked up in a day and it comes in sizes Baby to Adult Large. The knit-like rib makes it fit snuggly around your head for extra coziness and the short rows at the crown take away any excess bulk.
For this hat, we've selected La Bien Aimee's Merino Aran in Rust. You'll only need one skein!
From Emily Ingrid,
The Copy.Cat C.C Beanie
The perfect unisex hat with the perfect amount of slouch... and it's free!
You'll need 200 yards of Aran weight yarn for this hat, so we're pointing you towards Blue Sky Fibers' Blue Sky Extra. You'll only need one skein!
From Jacqueline Cieslak
Rift cracks open all your assumptions about what a “basic tee” pattern should be. This lightweight, bottom-up knit includes instructions for two necklines, optional bust darts, short or long sleeves, and a custom fit bicep. The design features a slightly cropped body and a split high-low hem in twisted rib, giving it enough detailing to be interesting while maintaining a timeless simplicity.
We're pairing you with Crave Caravan for the Rift Sweater---trust us on this one. You'll need 2 Skeins!
From Matilda Kruse
Briyoke is knitted top down with two decorative brioche sections on its round yoke. For Briyoke Cardigan the brioche sections are worked back and forth. The body is knitted in the round with a steek. For Briyoke Pullover the whole piece is knitted in the round, with no seaming necessary.
We're pairing you with Crave Caravan for this one too.
You'll need 2 skeins for the main body, and
1 Skein for each contrast color.
That's 4 skeins total!
From Karida Collins
These mitts are a bit of a magic trick: simple rectangles of garter stitch are worked on the bias to create an intriguing slant-y fabric, then strategically seamed with a gap for the thumb. Voilà: mitts that anyone can make, and everyone will love.
Choose from our large selection of self-striping skeins from Vesper Sock Yarns for this project. You'll only need 1 skein!
From Tin Can Knits
There’s nothing quite so darling as a beloved kept cozy warm by a perfect little hand knit! This bonnet fits the bill, with intriguing construction designed to stay put and frame that beloved little face!
Check out our vibrant selection of the soft and springy Squish DK from Spun Right Round. This superwash yarn is great for kids who might get a bit messy. You'll only need 1 skein!
BIG LOVE is worked seamlessly from the top-down. Start working the collar separately. Then you pick up and CO sts for the back and shape the back neck with short rows. Continue to work the back for the length of the armhole. Pick up the stitches for the front and collar and work both fronts symmetrically for the length of the armhole. Join back and fronts to work the body in stitch pattern down to the bottom ribbing. Pick up the sleeve sts to work the sleeves in rounds in stitch pattern.
We've got you covered with Le Gros Lambswool from Biches & Buches. Grab 7 skeins of the Dark Blue Turquoise and fall in love this autumn!

Quick Faux Fur Cowl
A cute, contemporary nod to gorgeous, vintage accessories. And worked in the round in simple stockinette stitch, it’s wonderfully quick and easy. Warm, furry, and cuddly, you’ll want to make as many as there are color options!
Sirdar Alpine—a superbly soft and supremely pettable bulky-weight yarn. Akin to a fringed ribbon and crafted entirely in polyester, Alpine is also machine-washable—perfect for this retro-inspired faux fur cowl! You'll need 2 skeins.
From Sonja Hood,
The Pattern (Crochet)
This crochet shawl pattern is rated as EASY -- suitable for a confident beginner. It uses standard US English crochet terminology. It has been tested for clarity and accuracy by a professional crochet designer. In addition, it contains step-by-step how-to photos.
For this chunky, cozy shawl, we suggest Daruma's Falkland Wool in Color 3. This soft, light brown yarn is the perfect match for those rapidly approaching, chilly autumn days!
From Gaby Peterson
The Go-To Throw is a simple and elegant (yet oh-so-cozy) blanket dreamed up by our very own Gaby Peterson here at yarnology. When you buy 4 or more skeins of Berroco Macro, we'll include the pattern for free!
Our favorite yarn for this throw is Berroco Macro. You'll need 4 skeins, but each will give you 12-13” of length in the finished throw—so, if you want it to be longer, buy additional skeins and keep going.

Wildflowers & Honeycomb Socks
A not quite vanilla sock knit cuff down with a very easy eyelet pattern, a honeycomb slip stitched heel flap and comfy rounded star toe, just enough little details to spruce up a vanilla sock pattern perfect for the prettiest spring colored yarn in your stash. Inspired by the sweet little flowers that cover the ground just as spring returns. The pattern is written for 3 sizes using dpns. It is adaptable to magic loop if that is your preference.
These socks are the perfect match for our brand new (and yes, exclusive!) Palmer Yarn Company Sock Sets. These are in limited supply, and are only available at Yarnology.
