Brown Sheep Company has long been known for producing great yarn, but did you know. . .
Spring 2012 Brown Sheep Original Patterns
Focus on Design
Last week, we found the most wonderful pattern for a beautiful Thrummed Outer Vest. After visiting with the designer,Lisa Ellis, we decided to feature her here and let you get to know her, too. First, though, look at this gorgeous vest created with Burly Spun! When designing this vest, Lisa tells us she was looking for a super bulky yarn that would be heavy enough to work as an outer vest but not so bulky that it would could only be worn in the harshest of climates. She also needed a yarn that gave good yardage to keep this vest price affordable. This vest uses as little as 1 skein (child's 12 mth size) and as much as much as 4 skeins for the size 2X. She has since knit up 5 of these vests -- each one more exciting than the first! Her vest pattern also comes with a You Tube tutorial link on "how to thrum".
