March Knit A Long

We are SUPER EXCITED to announce our March Knit A Long. Our project is the Inspira Cowl a free pattern on Ravelry by Graphica using Amitola by Louisa Harding. The long, ombre shading of Amitola is perfect for the color work involved in this project. The Inspira Cowl uses long color repeats and stranded knitting technique in a corrugated rib where two different colored yarns are used to create a staggered pattern. This project is worked in the round on circular needles.
We choose to knit the Steampunk version using size US 7 needles or whatever size needle is needed to get gauge of 27 sts x 30 rows = 4 inches.
544 yards/498 meters total of 2 repeat color ways. Main color approx. 332 yards and contrasting color 212 yards. Projects on Ravelry using Amitola used 2 skeins of the main color and 1 cc.
You can purchase the yarn for the Knit a Long here.

Arm Knitting At Chelsea Yarns

It's all about chunky knits everywhere we turn! For "us" knitters and crocheters it's instant gratification! Super easy and fast projects that knit up in just a few hours. 

Chunky is hot! Everyone is doing it!
Well what about Arm Knitting? We have been going gaga over the last few weeks arm knitting. You can arm knit a cowl or scarf in less than 15 minutes! The perfect gift for teachers, friends, co-workers, family, or be selfish and make one for yourself!
There are several youtube videos floating around to help show you how to arm knit! 
All you need is 1 skein of this, cast on 4 stitches knit till the end.
You can also use 1 skein of Knit Collage Pixie Dust or Sister by Knit Collage.
You can also use 1 skein of Knit Collage Pixie Dust or Sister by Knit Collage.

And yes you need to bind off and sew together! Or if you don't want a cowl you can sew in the ends and wear like a scarf! It's that easy!!!!
1 skein of this chunky yarn makes a fabulous gift! 

1 skein of Pixie Dust makes this arm knitted cowl. Cast on 4 stitches! 

There are many colors and choices to choose from! Stop in and we would love to help you!

Amy Herzog Fit To Flatter

Last Sunday, Amy Herzog held the Fit to Flatter class at Chelsea Yarns. The shop was filled with ambitious knitters wanting to learn how to make their knitting fit better and flatter their body.
Amy's class was fabulous! She taught us to understand that each sweater shape and size fits every body type differently.

 The Chelsea Yarn students are now ready to Fit To Flatter!
We have her book for sale at the shop if you wish to learn more about Amy Herzog's Fit to Flatter.
