Back in November, we started carrying single patterns from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas, a yarn shop in Washington state with a line of elegantly uncomplicated knitting and crochet patterns. We recently ordered a few new patterns from Churchmouse to liven up our pattern binders.
Churchmouse patterns tend to feature simple stitch patterns and straightforward shapes, letting beautiful yarns take center stage. We’ve been hearing rave reviews from knitters who’ve taken on the Churchmouse “Welted Fingerless Gloves” and “Easy Folded Poncho,” among others. Anne has that very poncho on her needles right now, and I crocheted a baby blanket a few months ago using the Churchmouse “Vintage Crocheted Throw and Afghan” pattern.
Because of the simple shapes and textures in these designs, the yarn choices for Churchmouse patterns are limited only by gauge. Pick a garment you’d like to make, and we’ll be happy to show you the many yarns that might suit it, and help you narrow it down from there.
Come by the shop to flip through pattern binders, magazines, and books on the hunt for your next project. We hope you find inspiration here!
