Exclusive House Kits
TheYarn Company has a plethora of designs you can’t find anywhere else. Lucky us! And lucky you, too, because we have the kits.
For the wee ones, we have kits for Mercedes’s gorgeous Eyelet Pleat Baby Blanket, made with 342 Superwash yarn from Great Adirondack Yarn, and Irina Poludnecko’s colorful Mosaic Slip-Stitch Baby Blanket in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. We also carry Irina’s One-Ball Baby Cardigan in Tosca Light, and by Mercedes the snuggly Soulwool Baby Raglan Jacket, as well as her easy-peasy Baby Pullover in cotton and bamboo…
Also in the Ridiculously Easy department is Mercedes’s 30-Minute Bodega Scarf. Other scarf kits include Irina’s TSC Ritratto and Nirvana Scarf as well as her One-Ball Scarf. And do we have shawls? How about Zabeth’s heartstopping Coup de Coeur (in Lorna’s Laces Urban Undergound colorway Stoplight), and her wondrous Mid-Night Spring (see details below)! We also have the kit for Stephen West’s Westlake, a drop-dead shawl in a delectable blue-gray, invented just for us! Stephen created the colorway with Beth Casey, owner of Lorna’s Laces—both the pattern and the colorway are called Westlake. And it only takes one skein of Sheperd’s Sock yarn!
We also carry the kit for Laura Zukaite’s now-legendary, ooh-la-la Midnight in Manhattan Sweater, which was such a hit at VKL, and which uses just three skeins of Madtosh’s Pashmina (or you can substitute another Midnight base of the same gauge).
As part of our dance/lifestyle line, we have Mercedes’s versatile Coccinella Legwarmers in many colors, and her Artyarns Ballerina Shrug in Cashmere Glitter. And don your chapeaux! Our fabulous hat patterns include Irina’s Soulwool Soul Hat and Decadent Cashmere Fox Hat, and Mercedes’s delightful Briar Rose Hat and, for her Zara Men’s Line, a handsome hat in The Yarn Company’s series of Filatura Di Crosa men’s colors.
Gloves and wristlets abound: You will never want to take off Mercedes’s Midnight Crocheted Wristlets in Madtosh Midnight in Manhattan Pashmina—unless it is to alternate with Tanis Gray’s Eleanor Jean Mitts in Lorna’s Laces West Side Highway! But also in Midnight in Manhattan are Mary Beth Temple’s astounding Fanciful Gauntlets…oh, the choices! (If only one had more hands!)
We have kits for knitted and crocheted jewelry too, all designed by Mercedes: an amazing Artyarns Beaded Pearls and Sequins Bracelet and Necklace, a Shimmering Silver Artyarns Necklace and Headband, a Crystal Crochet necklace, an Artyarns Beaded Headband, and a Gatsby Bracelet, Necklace and Earrings.
