This week at Yarns By Design!

In just a few days, Sandy whipped up this great little spring/summer sweater from one of the boutique's newest yarns, Nashua Daylily! The pattern is the "Scoop Neck Cardigan," which can be found in Nashua's Daylily pattern booklet.


Coming up this weekend is a double-header of cardigan classes — one knit, and one crochet. On Saturday, March 20 from 10:00am-12:00pm, join us as we knit Stefanie Japel's "Cardigan With Ribbing," from her book, Fitted Knits. This top-down sweater is knitted with Cascade 128 — a bulky yarn — and requires no seaming, so you'll be wearing your finished sweater in no time! Bring your hooks for the second class of the day, when we'll be crocheting Robyn Chachula's "Comfy Cardi" from the book Crochet Me: Designs to Fuel the Crochet Revolution by Kim Werker. The suggested yarn for this pattern is Blue Sky Alpaca Silk, and we have a wonderful selection of colors for you to choose from. The class will be held from 1:00pm-3:00pm. Both the knit class and the crochet class will have a second session at the same times on Saturday, March 27. Pre-registration is required for classes, and each student will receive 10% off class materials. Call ahead at 412 832 0657 for more details and to register.

Also, don't forget to stop by the boutique this Thursday, March 18 from 10:00am-7:00pm for Customer Appreciation Day!
