Ready for a little color-work? We think the Baa-ble hat makes an ideal introduction to Fair Isle color-work knitting. It's a quick knit and, in true Fair Isle tradition, only two colors are used at a time. Both of our samples are knitted with Ella Rae Classic, a fantastic yarn for classic knits like winter sweaters and hats. Ella Rae Classic Solids & Classic Heathers come in an amazing array of solid and heathered colors and a generous 219-yard ball make this a terrific value yarn!
Also new are these felted sheep notions bags, handmade by artisans in Kathmandu. This industry provides livelihood opportunities and reliable income to artisans in Nepal....so you can organize your needles and notions in one of these bags and feel good about it! Available in a multitude of colors.
Throw in the Sheep Needle Gauge & Sheep Tape Measure and you've got a flock of fun!

DMC Top This! is a snuggly, silky bulky weight yarn that comes with a whimsical character perfect for adorning the top of a knitted hat. The bright and colorful yarn is made up of three continuous textures in a blend of acrylic and nylon. It's easy to knit a Top This! hat because you never need to change yarn. A free hat pattern is included with each ball.
