  • Free Knitting Pattern: Muskoka Shawl

    Our latest shawl pattern is inspired by the Muskoka District of Ontario, one of the province’s largest concentrations of nature. Whether we’re faced by Winter winds, rain-soaked Springs or the mid-Summer humidity, we crave an escape to nature – even just for a weekend to fill our lungs with fresh, outdoor air. The daily stresses that are amplified by cramped desks and the glow of computer screens are erased by the crackling of campfires and the shelter of towering trees. Just as the Muskoka District offers the chance to reconnect with nature, knitting offers us the chance to reconnect with our...

  • Know Your Yarns: Madeline Tosh Merino Light

    Madeline Tosh Merino Light has been a staple of our selection since it first arrived, and we absolutely love it. This 100% superwash merino wool yarn is a single-ply, fingering-weight yarn that shows off colour beautifully and knits up into a gorgeous lightweight fabric. Though not a good choice for socks (the single ply means they would wear out quickly), Merino Light is perfect for shawls and light sweaters — how lucky that it's the same base used for Madeline Tosh's Unicorn Tails, making it easy to add stripes to your projects without ending up with too many leftovers. Naturally, we...

  • Stash Essentials: Cascade Yarns

    Cascade yarns are hard to beat! We love a luxury yarn as much as the next knitter, but when it comes to tried-and-true, hard-wearing, and affordable yarns, Cascade is our 'go to' yarn. Cascade 220, Cascade 220 Superwash, Eco Duo and Cascade Heritage are our favorites. And since we've found ourselves recommending it more and more frequently, we thought it was time to sing its praises here. Cascade Eco Duo in Vanilla, Latte, and Hazelnut. Cascade Eco Duo: This is definitely one of our favourites. A 50-50 blend of undyed baby alpaca and undyed merino wool, Eco Duo is a...

  • Know Your Bulky Yarns

    The chill is really starting to set in around here, and there's only one way we know how to beat it: warm woolly sweaters, shawls, cowls, hats, mitts, etc. The key, here, though is thick and woolly, and, better yet, quick! Due to an always high demand around this time of year, we've got lots of chunky and bulky yarns in stock. Some are old favourites (Berroco Peruvia Quick and Misti Alpaca Chunky among them) but we have lots of new yarns too, so without further ago, here's a great selection of yarns destined to be your need-warmth-now garments of choice. Rowan...

  • Know Your Yarns: Rowan Kidsilk Haze, Felted Tweed, and Kid Classic

    Rowan Yarns are famous and rightly so!  We've been carrying Rowan Pure Wool Worsted for three years, and that first taste got us wanting more Rowan!  We now have huge amounts of Rowan Felted Tweed (in both, DK and Aran), Rowan Kidsilk Haze (and Kidsilk Haze Stripe!), and Rowan Kid Classic, all available in a ton of colours, and in sweater quantities (you can see our full selection of Rowan here). Left: Rowan Kidsilk Haze in Magestic, Steel, and Smoke.Right: Rowan Kidsilk Haze in Essence, Jelly, and Rowan Kidsilk Haze Stripe in Circus Rowan Kidsilk Haze isn't new to our shelves, but it is such a lovely a yarn that we can't...

  • Stash Essentials: Berroco Vintage Yarn

    Berroco Vintage is another stash essential. It has been a little while since we've done a Stash Essentials post, but what with fall (and crisp, cool weather) just around the corner, we bet we're not alone in wondering what sweater-quantities of yarn our stash holds. If yours doesn't hold any, or you'd like to increase what's there, Berroco Vintage is a great choice. Vintage is available in three weights — DK, worsted, and chunky — and thanks to its acrylic content (it's a blend of 52% acrylic, 40% wool, and 8% nylon), it's machine washable! We are rarely in a position to champion a yarn with...

  • Rowan Pure Wool Worsted: Know your yarns

    We have been admirers of the Rowan aesthetic for a long time, so we are thrilled to be able to tell you that we have Rowan yarns on our shelves. Rowan's Pure Wool Worsted  is lovely and soft, but still has the slightly rustic appearance we love. It's that perfect blend of on-trend and traditional that Rowan does well – you can't help but feel that anything you knit or crochet from this yarn will become an instant classic. Clockwise from top, Rowan Pure Wool Worsted in Grasshopper, Apple, and Olive While we recommend taking a spin through the two...

  • Know Your Chunky Yarns

    We know we don't need to tell you it has been cold. When -18C is an improvement, well, lets just say we've been considering just draping ourselves in skeins of wool as a stop-gap. If you're anything like us, when it's cold, you wish you had thicker layers and then the minute it warms up you  go back to knitting whatever pretty things catch your fancy. It's a new year, though, so this time we're going to be prepared for the next polar vortex by hunkering down now with pretty (and thick!) yarn and fun quick patterns. A few quick...

  • Shibui Knits: Know your yarns

    We say this all the time (we know) but we really, really can't wait for you to see the new Shibui Knits yarn we have in stock. Shibui Knits knows their fibers, and they also know how to design contemporary, exciting pattern collections that show off all the things we love about their yarns. We're now carrying three Shibui yarns, in a full complement of colourways – let us give you a tour. Clockwise from top, Shibui Pebble in Ivory, Spore, and Chestnut Pebble is a light-fingering/laceweight yarn made up of merino, cashmere, and recycled silk. Each fiber takes the...

  • Stash essentials: Berroco Ultra Alpaca

    Ultra Alpaca in Irwyn (#6273) When it comes to stashing yarn, every knitting and crocheter has certain fibres that call to them. Some people are drawn to luxury fibres like silk and cashmere and others can't resist that unique skein of hand-dyed sock yarn. When it comes to buying in quantity, though, you want something you know you can use. Stashing a sweater's worth of yarn – purchased either with no plan in mind or with a plan that is later forgotten – means knowing that the yarn you're purchasing is going to be perfect for a wide range of...

  • Modern Crochet Patterns and Designs

    There has been a bit of a crochet renaissance lately and we couldn't be happier. Yes, we love to knit, but crocheting is an art near and dear to our hearts, and we're thrilled with how many of you want to learn, or are picking up your hooks again. Part of this resurgence is almost certainly due to the renewed popularity of all things fibre arts, but we think there's something else here: crochet has gone modern. No longer is every garment a patchwork of granny squares (although those, too, have nostalgia value) – crochet has entered the popular conscience...

  • Crochet and Knitted Blankets

    It's snowing. Again. Don't get us wrong, as knitters and crocheters, we love winter, but there does come a point when it starts to wear on us. All the snow and cold and wind – it makes us want to wrap up and work on something cozy. What could be a better way to satisfy that feeling than to cast on for a blanket? Blanket designed by CQ and crocheted in two colours of Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk. A blanket, whether for a baby, a parent, or yourself, if perfect for this time of year. It's immensely satisfying to...

  • Knitted Gifts for Men

    We don't know about you, but around here we run into the same question every year: What the heck are we going to knit for our dad/son/husband!? These men, we love them, but let's be honest, they aren't always easy to knit for. They want dark colours, but not too dark; they want something nice, but not too fussy; they want something soft, but not too feminine. On and on go the caveats until you're just about ready to throw your hands in the air and get them a book instead. Well, this year we're here to help you out....

  • Misty Alpaca Yarn: know your yarns

    Say hello to Misti Alpaca Chunky.  It would seem that here in EweKnit, as the temperature outside drops, our desire to wrap ourselves in alpaca (or, at least surround ourselves with it in the shop) increases accordingly. It has gotten colder, so the alpaca we've been compulsively squishing has gotten bigger: say hello to Misti Alpaca Chunky. This 100% baby alpaca yarn is so soft it doesn't quite seem real. And I know you've probably felt some soft yarn before, but truly, this stuff is like lullabies and clouds soft. That it comes is a wide range of both solid...

  • Free Baby Sock Pattern

    Knitting baby socks can turn knitters into sock enthusiasts. If you ever want to feel clever, just turn a heel – it is knitting magic. If you're new to sock knitting, baby socks are a great place to start because they'll teach you all the basics of top-down sock knitting, in an adorable little package. Additionally, even small skeins of fingering weight yarn are big enough to knit at least three socks, meaning you'll have enough yardage for a learning sock and then a full pair. If you're already a sock knitter, baby socks offer all the joys of sock...
