Free Patterns in Franca!
Franca, our super-bulky, 100% superwash merino is a wonderful choice for near-instant gratification projects. The watercolor-inspired palette has expanded to include speckles and variegated colorways. These new free patterns are an opportunity to complete a project quickly, as a last-minute gift or treating yourself!
The Check Check Hats and Cowl set features the classic checkerboard pattern, knit in high contrast Batik (black with teal speckles) and Party (white with confetti sprinkles). The checkerboard pattern is explored on three different accessories: a tall, wards-off-the-chill cowl; a cozy beanie that covers the ears; and a skullcap that fits snugly on the head and lets the ears out!
Fast and cozy, the Floop Hat in Franca is a perfect project as a quick gift for experienced knitters or your first hat if you are a new knitter. Carol Feller also created a free video workshop to learn all the techniques you'll need in her new design.
Take another look at the Any Season, Any Reason Cowl. It’s knit in the round in a simple slip-stitch pattern, a texture that highlights the colorways you’ve chosen. The pattern is written for three weights: Silk Blend (DK), Maxima (Worsted), and Franca (superbulky)! Shown here in the Azalea and Party colorways of Franca.
We’ve shared the Tri Color Super Scarf before and now that the weather is turning much colder, it’s a good time to share it again! Three colors of Franca are used in this textural knit: Wellies, Butterscotch, and Azalea. One skein of each color will provide enough yardage for two scarves!
