Chevron Hearts Beanie

The Chevron Hearts Beanie - a brand new pattern from Samantha at A Whimsical Wood Yarn Co. -  is a fun, quick knit, and when you've finished it, your noggin'll be toasty warm. Knit with two colors of super bulky Malabrigo Rasta, when we say "quick", we mean it!

We used Rasta in Natural as the main color and Pearl Ten as our contrast. Since the contrast color uses less than a full skein, we wound off some Pearl Ten into half skeins and assembled some kits to make it all easier for you. Click HERE to grab a yarn bundle exactly like our sample!

Or....create the Chevron Hearts Beanie of your dreams and shop our open stock of Malabrigo Rasta HERE! You'll need two skeins, one each of two colors.

The Chevron Hearts Beanie pattern is right HERE! Designer Samantha's pattern includes links to videos on EXACTLY how the "heart" stitch is created...and it's genius!

Stitch Marker Bowls

Hot from the kilns of Handmade Studio TN, we’re tickled pink (or gold?) to have a stack of these sweet gilded ceramic ring bowls...and they just so happen to make perfect stitch marker holders! Perfectly giftable for fellow crafters and non-crafters alike...or to keep for yourself!

Each is glazed a glossy white, then finished with a tiny 22k gold heart and rim, and - in case you plan on serving the world’s tiniest meal - is food safe as well. No two are exactly the same, though each is approximately 3" across and about 1" high.

Stitch markers not included, but we have plenty of options!

Heart Connection Hat + Mitts

Have you ever noticed that a single knit stitch resembles a heart!? If you've never made that connection before, you'll never look at an itty-bitty knit stitch the same way's a heart!

Both the Heart Connection Hat and Heart Connection Mitt feature the sweetest little stripes of "heart-detail" colorwork. Both are knit using Big Bad Wool's Weepaca, a serious shop favorite blend of 50/50 merino/alpaca! 

The Heart Connection Mitts require one full skein of Weepaca in Raw White along with a Heart Connection yarn bundle.

The Heart Connection Hat requires two full skeins of Weepaca in Raw White along with a Heart Connection yarn bundle.
