Reversible Trellis Cowl Knit Design

  • A hot pink cowl with a gray interior.

Reversible Trellis Cowl is a fun accessory that can be made in any two colorways. It’s reversible so you can wear it either way, inside or out. Try contrasting colors for exciting pops of color, or subtle colors for a quiet elegance. One side has a lacy slip stitch pattern so you can see a little bit of the other color through it; the other is a beautiful trellis pattern. Knit in a tube and seamed together at the end. It’s two in one! Knit in two skeins of fingering weight Chasing Rabbits Fiber Co yarn.

Palettes for Making Undyed Yarns Pop!

  • A brown knitted square with a circle of gray.

At Gothfarm Yarn, we love our neutral shades. After all, our last Indie Untangled blog post showcased our array of gray yarn and roving!

But working with our undyed yarn doesn’t have to mean projects in muted colors. Check out four color palette ideas to make striking knits with our undyed, naturally-colored fibers! Each palette photo is posted in the same order as the list below.

#1. Harmonious
This palette uses three yarns in earthy hues. The colors work together; one doesn’t dominate over another. Our two brown yarns — Aswan and Ultisol — form a marled background. The gray yarn — Gabbro –creates a solid foreground shape. Aswan’s subtle gray tweed helps strengthen the color harmony.

Yarn guide:
Light brown: Aswan
Dark brown: Ultisol
Gray: Gabbro

#2. Dye Collider
There’s no reason why undyed yarns and indie-dyed yarns should live in different worlds!* In fact, undyed yarns can create a neutral canvas that can make indie-dyed yarns pop! In this palette, our white yarn — Bone — is combined with hand-spun dyed yarn from Hedgehog Fibres. An added bonus: Bone’s fuzzy halo helps blend it all together.

*as long as the dye is well-set, and the finished product is gently hand washed in cool water.

Yarn guide:
White: Bone
Colored yarn: Hedgehog Fibres hand-spun (personal stash)

#3 Marled Metallics
Our golden, lace-weight yarn – Aten – can add shine and class to any project. Simply hold it together with your main yarn to create a marled metallic look. We paired it here with our matte-gray yarn Nebelung.

Yarn guide:
Gold: Aten
Gray: Nebelung

#4 High contrast
Undyed yarn is known for complex, rich neutrals. You can make neutrals pop by choosing a high-contrast colorwork motif. A classic example of that is Houndstooth. We did our own take on it based on the tooth shape of the Crab eater seal. The pattern chart is free on Ravelry! https://www.ravelry.com/projects/GothfarmYarn/crabeater-seal-teeth-motif

Yarn guide:
Black: Carbonado
White: Kaolin
Gray: Gabbro

Join our Knit-a-Long and Advent Calendar!

  • A woman holds a green and white lacy striped shawl.

Hello from Stardust Fiber Studio!

Time has almost run out to sign up for our studio’s first virtual Knit-a-Long! Sign up by September 30th, 2020 to join us in all of the fun! The pattern we will be doing is the beautiful Waiting for Rain shawl by Sylvia McFadden. We are extremely excited to be able to showcase our new base collection with this gorgeous pattern! The Knit-a-Long will be for the one color pattern, but for those that are up for a challenge, the pattern also comes with modifications to add a second color, more lace, and different cast-offs. We will be listing color combinations to choose from for those who want two colors. This knit-a-long will run from November 1st to December 31st. The Knit-a-Long kit comes with two hand dyed skeins of our signature yarn and an exclusive Knit-a-Long stitch marker set for your project!

During the Knit-a-long, we will host a weekly Knit and Sip via Zoom Wednesday nights from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM PST, so that you can hang out and chat with other knitters. Break out your favorite tea or drink and join us. You can be a part of the Zoom calls by joining our new Community Group on Facebook. Not only will you finish this knit-a-long with a beautiful new shawl, there will also be giveaways for participants along the way! We are so excited to have you join us. The kits for the knit-a-long will be available for purchase through the end of September in order to give us time to dye before the start date in November.

September 30th, 2020 is also the deadline to purchase our first annual Advent Calendar! These gift boxes will include 24 individually packaged mini skeins to open throughout December and one full skein to open on Christmas. All of the yarn in this calendar is in our signature fingering weight base, Andromeda. There will also be lots of little gifts and surprises in each day’s box as well. This is a perfect gift for yourself or your favorite fiber artist this Christmas. There will be a few “traditional” Christmas-themed skeins, as well as a variety of jewel tones and timeless colors that can be used in a variety of projects!

Not only will we have our yarn Advent calendar this year, we will also have a stitch marker Advent calendar available for the avid collector. You will receive daily presents to open with unique, handmade stitch markers, and on Christmas you will receive one of our new Analog Row Counters. Both the yarn and stitch marker advent calendars will be available for pre-order until September 30th.

You don’t want to miss out on either of these exciting opportunities!

Special one day sale at Fiberdog Fibers

September 28th is coming up and guess what? It is my wedding anniversary!

I like to spread the joy I feel in my life and crafts so on that day only EVERYTHING in my store will be 20% off! You won’t need any code, the discount should be applied automatically at checkout. Of course if there are any issues, please contact me so I can solve your problem as quickly as possible.

Also, I have restocked “Hot Summer”!
It is available both as yarn and fiber and, like all of my products, is hand-dyed and handspun.

Finally, I’d like to introduce my Ravelry group to you, the Fiberdog Fibers Ravelry Fiber Pack. The goal of this group is to create a community where fiber crazy people like you and me can meet and share our joy. Share projects, help each other when we are stuck somewhere, just generally support each other. I will share updates to the shop there, but you don’t have to be a customer to be part of that group (though I would certainly appreciate it 😉 )

I’m looking forward to sharing my fiber passion with you!
