Red Barn Yarn Project and Pattern Inspiration

Though the weather outside may still feel like summer, the magazines that come to the mail box and the popular patterns on Ravelry are showing the early signs that fall is coming. Red Barn Yarn® would like to take this opportunity to share with you a few patterns that we think would look particularly nice in our yarns.

shawl and mitts
The Age of Brass and Steam shawl and Autumn in the Ozarks mitts

Accessories are a great choice to work on this time of year. If the weather is still hot they do not create a large pile of yarn on your lap and they work up quickly! The Age of Brass and Steam shawl and Autumn in the Ozarks are each currently available on Ravelry as a free download. Red Barn Yarn® Powder River is a perfect dk-weight choice for these patterns and one skein of yarn (with 260 yards in a skein) would be enough to make a small shawl or the fingerless mitts!

sweater patterns

Sweater weather is sure to be here before you know it, so if you prefer to start on a sweater here are a few we think are fantastic! Pepper, Salt and Chili is a easy-to-knit seamless top down sweater. The semi-solid grey with the pop of red is wonderful; we could see this in Red Barn Yarn® Worsted! The Lady Sunnyside is another choice for our Worsted in a simple yet detailed and very classy cardigan. The Fretwork Pullover, in the new Vogue Knitting, took our breath away with the cablework. This design calls for a dk yarn – Red Barn Yarn® Powder River maybe or our Raw Wool & Silk would create a showstopper of a sweater.
