Have you seen the amazing collaboration between Hedgehog Fibres and Madelinetosh yet? The two industry-leading indie dyers have worked together to create beautiful, sustainable yarn in two limited edition colorways. The rainbow flecks are thread waste from Madelinetosh, and 37.5% is recycled wool, which combined with the non-super wash faulkland make for a wonderfully soft yarn that blooms beautifully after a wash. We are so thrilled to be one of only nine stockists globally for the gorgeous Tweedy collaboration, so much so that we just had to use it as inspiration for our fall sweater knit along! And a gorgeous, unique yarn deserves a gorgeous, unique pattern, so we’ve decided on the Winters Beach Cardi by Andrea Mowry.
Winters Beach is an oversized, cabled cardigan meant to be worn open. Designed for the original HHF Tweedy yarn, it’s a perfect compliment to the two limited edition collaboration colorways, Dreaming In Light and Future Reflections. The cables and textured stitches make it a fun knit, and the pockets and comfortable fit make it easy to wear. It’s also size inclusive, with finished bust measurements from 39.5”-69.75” meant to be worn with 6”-10” of positive ease.
Fancy Tiger Crafts will also be offering 15% off four or more skeins of Tweedy in celebration of our knit along! Simply use the code “TweedyKAL” to get the discount in store or online. Customers may purchase the yarn with the discount August 8 - September 6th. The KAL will kick off during Craft Night on August 23 and will conclude October 31.
Looking for other yarn ideas? A smooth, DK weight yarn with good stitch definition is a good substitute! We recommend Scout, Arbor, Juicy DK, or Phyllis DK as possibilities.
We hope you’ll join us for a special cast on craft night on September 6! Not local? No problem! We’ll be running our virtual craft nights on Zoom as well. We’ve also got a Discord server set up, so you can stay connected whenever, wherever!
We’ll be concluding our knit along in true Fancy fashion by awarding prizes for best in progress and finished photos, so be sure to share yours on Instagram with the hashtag #FTCwintersbeachKAL and tagging @fancytigercrafts before October 31!
