Pattern release: Gardener’s Pullover

Gardeners-85 copy

Our newest pattern Gardener’s Pullover is now available on our website at and on Ravelry.  This oversized and loose sweater is the perfect weight for cooler spring days and evenings.  The seed stitch and beautiful cables make this a interesting and very rewarding knit.

The prototype has been in the works for months and in my mind for years!  We were overjoyed to find the perfect new DK to add to Nice & Knit Yarns.

Our new DK Luxe is the most fantastic blend of 65/20/15 Merino Wool Superwash, Silk and Yak.  DK Luxe is a generous 230 yards, the yarn is incredibly soft with a gorgeous sheen, it knits up like an absolute dream!

Wave, Summer Sun & Hazy Skies

Gardeners Pullover really is my absolute favorite knit of all time…I think you’ll think so too!


Southbound for the Holidays – Limited Edition Kit

Well, it’s not exactly as it sounds, we won’t be heading southbound for the holidays but with temps expected to dip below zero it does sound like a good idea.  Instead, ‘Southbound for the Holidays‘ is describing a limited edition color kit for our Southbound wrap pattern.  The holiday kit pairs classic colors together for a festive flair with a peekaboo of red and green but in a way that the wrap can be worn all winter long. This kit will be available just through the 2016 Holiday season at a special price of $99 (reg. $116). No code necessary, Shop now!

New Pattern and Project Kits Available: Winter Wind

Our latest cowl pattern, Winter Wind, is blowing in just in time for the holiday season!  Winter Wind mixes our Nice & Knit Worsted and Fingering weight bases to create an accessory that is so luxuriously soft and light, yet still so toasty warm that you might even mistake it for cashmere.

This project makes a great holiday gift – and there’s still time to knit it! This can be done start to finish in just a few days!



Winter Wind Project Kits include:
1 Digital Download of Winter Wind Pattern
1 Skein of Nice & Knit Worsted
1 Skinny Mini Skein of Nice & Knit Fingering

Pattern Update: Ingy Hat

Now that the weather has turned much colder and the first snow of the season has fallen we’ve been wearing as many hand knits as we can.  As we went through our stash of samples, we realized our Ingy hat needed a second look. We concluded that just a few small changes would make for some big improvements.  As a result, we’ve updated the pattern to give the fabric a bit more stretch and the cables a bit more squish.

If you have previously purchased the pattern you should have received an email update to download the latest copy.
