Featured Patterns:  The English Rose Shawlette (knit) and the Perfect Lacy Crochet Cowl (crochet) was both designed for the 2016 East TN Yarn Crawl using a different yarn.  But they would look lovely in the Malabrigo Arroyo yarn.  You just need 1 skein of the Arroyo and size 5-40" circular knitting needle or size F crochet hook.  


Look in the "Patterns" section of our website for the pictures of both patterns.


We'll send you the pattern free with purchase of a skein or more of the Malabrigo Arroyo yarn. Put in the notes section of your cart whether you want the knit or crochet pattern.
