Zig + Spincycle Trine

Our friend ahh-mazing Lisa hit it out of the park with this new shop sample! Zig, from designer Andrea Mowry, is a comfy pullover worked from the bottom up with chevron colorwork, a split hem and drop shoulders. Perfect for staying cozy and - even better -  it wears like your favorite sweatshirt!

It's no secret we're fans of all-things-marled and since each skein of Spincycle Trine is a 3-ply non-superwash yarn made up of three different solid colors, Trine has quickly become a shop favorite. You'll find some calm color wheel neighbors, some neutrals, and even some splashy color. In other words: something for everyone!

Ricorumi Spin Spin

Calling all Amigurumi lovers! New for Spring from Rico Design: Ricorumi Spin Spin DK and Fresh Friends!

Spin Spin is a DK weight cotton, perfectly sized for amigurumi stuffies at 125 yards/cake. All colors in the palette are color gradients - some are tone on tone, while others contain multiple colors within the same ball. The 
gradient color palette coordinates perfectly with the original Ricorumi DK solid color palette.

Along with the launch of Spin Spin, Rico has published a book of patterns: Fresh Friends contains nine "fresh" patterns; leek, carrot, eggplant, pepper, peas, apple, cherries, lemon and strawberry. They. Are. Adorable.

Shop Ricorumi Spin Spin DK HERE!

The Lemon shown above requires one Spin Spin in 002 Yellow and a teensy bit of 08 Rose from the original Ricorumi DK line.

The Fresh Friends pattern collection can be found right HERE!
