The cat's out of the bag! We've reached the third and final part of our Beanie Bag trifecta, and can now reveal what you've been knitting all along - Alex Tinsley's Snowhemian Hat!

Here's what this month's bag has in store for you:


Part III of Alex Tinsley's Snowhemian Hat incorporates basic ribbing and an eyelet design. The crown of the hat is shaped by simple decrease rounds, and the finished hat is topped with a pompom made from the leftover yarn bits.

Part III of Ann Wicker's crochet version finishes this top-down hat with a mixture of Griddle Stitch and Camel Stitch to give the hat extra texture. Like the knit version, you can top it off with a pompom made from the leftover yarn bits!

Now that we've wrapped up our spring cleaning endeavors, we're in the mood for some new decorations around the house and office!

The fabulous Ann Wicker has designed both a knit and crochet pattern to create a little wall banner that will liven up any wall surface, while also showcasing several stunning yarns.

Here's a look at what's in this month's adorable zippered pouches:

May 2017 Contents

Perhaps we've been listening to too much Tom Petty recently (is that even possible?) but this month we've got wildflowers on our minds. Free to roam with just the guidance of the wind, wildflowers are a symbol of the untamable and the ability to endure in even the roughest conditions. We felt inspired by the raw beauty and courageous spirit of the wildflower, and we think that everyone should take a moment from their day-to-day routine to go be "among the wildflowers!"

For this month's Little Beanie Bag, we teamed up with designers Monika Evans and Ann Wicker to create little knitted and crocheted wildflowers of our own! Keep a wildflower next to your bed, on your desk, on the dashboard of your car, or share it with a close friend. Let these wildflowers serve as little daily reminders to always live freely, boldly, and happily no matter where life takes you!

Here's a look at what's in this month's adorable zippered pouches:




Beanie Bag Contents

Monika whipped up a fun, easy-to-follow knit pattern for her wildflower, and the pattern incorporates various techniques making it the perfect introductory project for those who may be working their way up toward more intermediate-level skills. The DPNs included in this month's Beanie Bag can not only be used to knit this project, but they can be used as the base of the stems as well!

Ann created a quick and oh-so darling crocheted wildflower, with two different petal designs so that each flower has its own look. The pattern calls for a separate size D (3.25mm) crochet hook, but she also used the included DPNs for the base of the stems for the finished flowers.

January 2017 Contents

Our favorite season has arrived: cold weather season - a.k.a., fluffy fiber season! We've already been hit with snow here in Reno, and we're breaking out the big guns: alpaca, llama, yak - if it lives in the cold, we're knitting with its fibers! You'll notice that all 4 of our yarns this month contain camelid fiber; that is, from animals in the family containing camels, alpacas, llamas, vicunas, and guanacos. Because they often live in extreme temperatures, their hollow-cored hair is remarkably insulating and strong, despite being very fine - the average alpaca fiber is three times as strong as merino wool, and llamas produce some of the smallest-diameter (and softest!) fibers in the world!




This month's bag was packed with 15-25 yard samples of some of our cold weather favorites, plus knit and crochet patterns for an adorable Neck Truffle to keep out the chill, plus pretty ribbon, a sample of Soak Wash, and a handy notions pouch!

Here's a look at what was in this month's adorable zippered pouches:

Beanie Bag Contents



Our Monika Evans jumped right in and created the knit and crochet versions of a sweet little neckwarmer she likes to call the Scrumptious Neckie, and we think the name is so fitting: it's a little bit of luxury!



Once you've created the rectangle, you'll lace it up with the pretty ribbon included in this month's bag, and voila! Out the door you go!



Keep the lacing in and pull it over your head for quick dressing, or mix and match other ribbon colors to make it even more fun!
