There’s nothing quite like finishing up a project, stepping back, and admiring your handiwork. Perhaps that’s why our two 5 1/2 Hr Afghans were the top patterns in June! These projects both used bulky yarns, which certainly help when you want a pattern to work up quickly. Their simplicity makes for a fast and easy project — and a beautiful housewarming gift!
Our Yarn of the Month for June — Babysoft® — provided a lot of inspiration for those of you knitting gifts for babies and toddlers. The bright pastels of this yarn collection created a variety of combinations perfect for little ones!
Lastly, airy shawls were a huge hit. These pieces are the perfect addition to a summer wardrobe. They provide the right touch of flair to any outfit, and keep us warm when the summer breeze gets a little chilly!
Below are the top patterns for June. Even as the weather warms up, we hope you’ll keep knitting and crocheting pieces for you and your loved ones!
