Churchmouse Classics Patterns - Modern Wrapper

The Modern Wrapper walks the line between cozy and chic, snuggly and sleek; an oversized piece designed with thoughtful details to fit well and stay on the shoulders in a softly draping fabric to flatter every body. Wear it around the house, or dress it up a little for town. We mixed a strand of tweedy wool or smooth alpaca-blend fingering-weight yarn with lace-weight mohair on nice big needles for luxurious drape and a quick knit. Customize the fit by adjusting sleeve length.

Churchmouse Classics Patterns - Mohair Bias Loop

Wear this sheer seamless loop as a long, endless scarf, or twisted double as a cowl, or around your sholders as a wrap.

Churchmouse Classics Patterns - Oval Crocheted Bucket Bags & Pouches

It all started with a straw backpack Kit found years ago at a New York street market. The bag is no more but Kit's sketch survived. We liked the capacious 'bucket' size, but preferred an oval base for less bulky proportions. We created a handy smaller version and kept scaling down 'til we arrived at zippered pouches, perfect for notions, cosmetics, projects... a bag for all reasons! Bucket bags come in two sizes, with options for drawstring or backpack straps. Pouches are also in two sizes, with instructions for adding a zipper and an optional fabric lining.

Churchmouse Classics Patterns - Ribbed Watch Cap & Beanie

This classic, close-fitting cap exhibits equal parts sailor's savvy and skateboard cool. We designed it in a fine gauge yarn in single rib, with a comfy tubular cast-on and nifty mitered decreases. We love the watch cap in its most quintessential form, with a deep cuff. And the beanie begged for a modern color-tipped edge. Great on girls, too!

Churchmouse Classics Patterns - Ruched Scarf & Wrap

The ruched scarf, designed by Jennifer Evans, was created to add subtle feminine flourish to the scarf equation (think of it as ruffles with restraint). We couldn't resist turning the gathered bands on their side with a lacier yarn for an ethereal wrap on a dramatic scale. Wear it as a party shawl, or as an unexpected scarf over a tailored coat.
