The holidays are over, but the weather is still frightful outside. What better time to stay indoors and craft something luscious for yourself? Today we’re highlighting a few patterns to knit or crochet for yourself in the new year!
Wrapped in Brioche
Fresh from our collaboration with Staci ofVery Pink Knits is our Wrapped in Brioche Shawl. This shawl is completely customizable - you can knit it as small or as large as you would like. It is worked in ourZen Yarn Garden Lux Blank, an oversized put up (750 yds) of our Serenity Silk + light fingering weight yarn. You can get all the details and receive the patternfor freewhen yousign up for our newsletter! Also, if you’re unsure about brioche check outStaci’s video for a tutorial.
Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Bundle Projects
Last fall, we sent out our Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Bundles to some of our favourite bloggers and podcaster. These bundles come in two colorwaysJazzy andVivid and each include 3 skeins of our luxurious Serenity 20 base dyed in semisolids, variegates and splatters. We were thrilled that folks came up with so many wonderful patterns for you to knit and crochet!
For our knitters, there’s theStormy Seas Shawl by Petals to Picots (below, left). For our crocheters, try theCrochet Jazzy Cardigan by Little Things Blogged (below, middle) or theVivid Scarf by 5 Little Monsters (below, right) for your next project!
Ombre Lightning Scarf
We just love the Ombre Lightning Scarf designed by Illuminate Crochet. Designer Sara worked with one of ourGradient Trios (pictured inRoyal Time) to design this extra-long and skinny scarf that is so chic when wrapped around your neck multiple times.
The Marled Crescent Shawl by Michelle Porter is a gorgeous crescent shaped shawl that is worked end to end and embellished with tassels on each point of the border. The colour changes and marled effects are achieved by holding two strands of yarn together throughout. Michelle used ourSerenity 20 base to create this stunning and cozy shawl!
Reversible Cable Brimmed Hat
Still looking for a warm hat to get you through the winter? We’ve got just the thing for you: theReversible Cable Brimmed Hat by Mary Beth Temple. This hat works up quickly in ourSerenity Worsted and is sure to keep you warm all winter long. One of the things we love about the reversible cable brim is that it can be worn two ways – with the brim turned up for a closer fit or with the brim folded down for more of a slouchy fit.
Finally, if you’re looking for a big, cozy shawl to wrap up in, we love theOverflow Shawl by Tanya Eberhardt of Little Things Blogged. This adult-sized shawl adds everything to a pattern a crocheter would want: it includes easy single crochet and double crochet stitches, then adds in cluster stitches, a few v-stitches and even some post stitches to keep things interesting! It's a fun-to-make shawl worked up in our buttery-softSuperfine Fingering base.
We hope we’ve given you a few ideas for luscious selfish projects to spoil yourself with in the new year. We can’t wait to see what you create!’

Creating and working with yarn is such a labor of love for all of us in the fiber community.
That’s why we believe that it’s so incredibly important to employ the most environmentally-friendly practices throughout the production process, every step of the way. To us, honoring the planet that nurtures the gorgeous animals we get our fiber from, conserving the water we use to dye with, and using as little energy as possible is one of our top priorities.
