Basic Sock

$7.00
Our mothers (and their mothers) knew this sock by heart, with its vertical heel flap, turned heel, picked up gussets and grafted toe. For many of us, it's the first sock we learned and our point of departure into the ever widening world of socks. While we love some of the new approaches, we return again and again to this straightforward, comfy basic. Once you understand its simple structure, improvise to your heart's content. Learn More

Kelly's Frothy Crocheted Scarf & Wrap

$5.00
We love that this scarf has the look of a delicate lace stitch but is—we kid you not—all simple single crochet. The secret is the humongous hook, which takes a little getting used to, but then it flies! We're thrilled with the versatility of this pretty, quick-to-crochet piece. The smaller scarf version is light and airy enough to wear as an indoor accessory, tied long or wrapped short. The larger wrap makes an elegant shawl, with enough length to pour over one shoulder. Or bunch it up around your neck as a lavish scarf. It's also gorgeous flung casually over the back of a chair—so even when you're not wearing it, you can enjoy it. Hook Size: Size P (11.5mm) crochet hook, or size to obtain gauge. Learn More

Linen Stitch Scarf

$5.00
Linen stitch has a way of harmonizing even the most disparate colors. It's equally beautiful in subtle shades. In fact, we haven't seen a bad combination yet! That's the magic of linen stitch. Heck, it's even beautiful on the 'wrong' side. Learn More

Pressed Rib Cap & Muffler

$5.00
Churchmouse Yarns fell in love with a handsome muffler in a favorite designer's shop. On closer inspection they discovered that it was simply K2/P2 ribbing. What made this scarf so special? It was the finishing. The ribbing was pressed flat which gave the fabric a soft, elegant hand. Churchmouse Yarns added a companion watch-cap with a nice 4-part decrease that's a little more finished, a little more refined. Learn More
