Time Traveler Vest + Glenna's Cowl

Our first two Outlander-inspired project kits are hot off the presses! Our first kit, the Time Traveler Vest by Therese Chynoweth, made its debut at Stitches West last month. Its Celtic-inspired cables and classic styling are almost universally flattering; additional shaping is provided by a leather cord or ribbon tie in the back. This wearable vest is knit in our Himalayan Trail yarn, and you’ll save over 15% when you purchase the yarn & pattern together in our exclusive kit.
Fans of cable-y goodness will also love our second kit to be released, Glenna's Cowl by Marly Bird! This kit made its debut at the DFW Fiber Fest earlier this month and is an instant classic! The cowl is knit flat sideways in Himalayan Trail yarn, then seamed to form a circle. Stitch markers are useful for keeping track of where you are in the cable design, and both charted and written instructions are included in the pattern. Best of all, you'll save over 15% when you purchase the yarn & pattern together in our exclusive kit.

Our next Outlander-inspired kit will be coming out soon, so stay tuned! In the mean time, choose from our 6 available project kits to cast on now as we count down the days til the return of Outlander - and don't forget to share your project with us over on Ravelry!
