Knitting Patterns to use with Yarn Value Packs

Yarn Value Packs are a great way to get a color curated pack of your favorite yarns at a discount, but what do you make once you have one? Here are some knitting pattern ideas to use with some of our newest Value Packs:

Stroll Tweed Value Packs

The Berry Stroll Tweed Value Pack

Stroll Tweed is perfect for gifts because of its machine washable convenience, not requiring special care on the part of the recipient. The rich, solid colors show off texture, lace, and cables. The neutral neps of tweed add flecks of interest to simple stitches and textured knits, but are subtle enough to accentuate rather than interfere with all but the most complex patterns. The understated neps also work well with striping, Fair Isle, and stranding, bringing a unifying element and additional texture to colorwork.

Use these color-curated Value Packs for:

Shown above: Glen Cottage Cowl and Chatter Lane Socks

Use your Stroll Tweed value pack to make a Glen Cottage Cowl or a pair of Chatter Lane Socks. Other great options are the Autumn Harvest Slouch Hat, Piney Tweed Hat, Ebullience Hat, or Michelina Shawl.

City Tweed DK Value Packs

Seven balls of City Tweed DK, ranging in color from dark gray to brown to tan to cream.

Glacier- Aloft Value Pack

Luxuriously soft, light, and airy, Aloft is a dreamy blend of 72% mohair and 28% silk that you will want to knit with again and again. The silk provides a radiant core that shimmers and shines through the soft halo of the mohair, while adding a beautiful drape and texture to any shawl, stole, or scarf. Whether you use this yarn on its own or as an accent, you will find Aloft to be a versatile yarn perfectly suited for any project, big or small.

Shown above: Alize, Cygnus, Timeless Pullover

Use your Aloft value pack to make a light-as-air sweater or wrap like Alize, Cygnus, or Timeless Pullover.

Use Aloft + Another Yarn:

Try holding Aloft doubled for a denser fabric, or along with another yarn for surprisingly warm cardigans or wraps. Here are some patterns that use Aloft held with another yarn:

Shown Above: Sorrel, Riant, Double Checker Pullover

Sorrel and Riant are both made with Aloft held double with Hawthorne. The Double Checker Pullover uses Stroll Tweed along with Aloft.
