Hot Right Now Patterns

Here you will find patterns that are 'hot right now' or we have seen around and some of our yarn choices to suit. (We do custom dyeing if the colour you want is out of stock)

Let us know if there is a new pattern out that you would like to see yarn choices for.

We update this page from time to time or as we notice something that's looking very popular in our knitting and crochet community.
