Summer Yarn Sale: Hawthorne Staff Projects

Have you checked out our Summer Yarn Sale? You’ll save up to 40% on over 600 yarns! Isn’t that amazing? It’s a great chance to stock up on your favorite yarns, and one of our favorite staff yarns here at Knit Picks is Hawthorne. There’s multicolored Hawthorne Fingering Yarn, also available in sport weight as Hawthorne Sport Mult Yarn , as well as Hawthorne Fingering Kettle Dye Yarn – there’s a colorway you’re sure to fall in love with! We love Hawthorne for its amazing stitch definition, sturdiness, ease of care, and softness. Here’s a round up of three staff projects we’ve made recently, in Hawthorne!


My daughter Penny is taking her first dance class this summer. It’s sponsored by our parks and recreation department, and starts early in the morning. For our walk to the park, I made her a Ballerina Wrap (pattern HERE, as a Ravelry link) in Hawthorne Sport, colorway Fremont. I found this shimmery fabric and made her a tutu to match.  I love how the the fabric brings out the pinks, purples and greens of the sweater.


What girl wouldn’t love these colors to dance in? I was particularly impressed with how the multiple colors in Hawthrone Fingering Multi Yarn scattered nicely throughout each pattern piece, with no odd pooling. If you’re more into a straightforward color with just a bit of variation, however, check out Alison’s baby dress (pattern is HERE, Ravelry link) in Hawthorn Kettle Fingering, colorway Wisp.


I’m totally making one of these! I love the box pleats and puff sleeves. The i-cord finish on the neck gives it a really polished look, too. Speaking of polished, our graphic designer Emily made a hat (pattern is Swift, in the book Journey, available HERE) in Hawthorne Sport, colorway Rose City.


See what we mean about stitch definition? You can see every detail of this beautiful pattern.


Whether you’re making small, portable projects like socks and hats this summer, lightweight garments or baby clothes, Hawthorne is perfect for the job. Now at a significant savings during our Summer Yarn Sale, it’s just too good to pass up! What things have you made in Hawthorne recently?
