Crochet Red
Two of our yarns are featured in Marly Bird's gorgeous Sweater with Cowl pattern which appears in the new Crochet Red book: our 100% Yak Sport Weight Yarn and Seraphim, our angora blend laceweight yarn! Together, they create a versatile layering piece for your year-round wardrobe.

Boot Toppers
If you are a fan of the Dual Cable Fingerless GlovesHat and Scarf patterns, you'll love Marly Bird's newest accessory, the Dual Cable Boot Toppers! They're the perfect way to complete your ensemble while staying toasty. You'll need 2 skeins of Bijou Bliss yarn to make this design, which are designed to be knit to your perfect size and are guaranteed to be the right fit! 

Free Pattern
Our friends at Jimmy Beans Wool have created a fantastic new fingerless mitt pattern which uses just one skein of Bijou Bliss yarn. Best of all, the Blissful Mitts pattern is available for free and knits up in a jiffy. Click here to view on Ravelry & add to your queue!
