Heirloom shawls and cozy sweaters are wonderful, but instant gratification can be even better. That’s what our All the Small Things Craft-a-Long is all about: small, quick projects. Maybe you haven’t knitted in a while – a small project is a great way to kick-start your crafting after a break! Maybe there’s a little one in your life who’d appreciate a new hat or sweater. Or maybe you could use a new pair of fingerless gloves to wear in your cold office this summer. The possibilities, though small, are endless!
For an extra bit of fun, we’re naming all of our craft-a-longs this year after some of our favorite songs. (This time: “All the Small Things” by Blink-182.) Maybe you’ll find ways to relate your projects to your favorite songs — we’d love to hear about it!
We’ve picked out a lovely bunch of yarns that lend themselves to small projects, and they’re all 10% off with the coupon code SMALL (remember to hit ‘recalculate’). Even better savings await you in our Clearance Corner! Join us on Ravelry for friendly chat, lots of eye candy, and a chance to win a prize just by submitting a picture of your project, finished or not. Cast on immediately, and enjoy the savings until the cast-off date of April 30!
It all starts with the yarn!

Today is our last day, and we’ve saved something fun for you! Today’s yarn is Hand Maiden Rumple, a 100% silk boucle heavy fingering/sport weight. The silk takes dye like a dream, lending eye-catching color to Hand Maiden’s unique variegated colorways. It pairs well with a simple stitch pattern, letting the boucle texture carry the show. It’s as much a pleasure to knit (or crochet, or weave!) as it is to wear, and a single skein will be plenty for a scarf or small shawl. One of the most popular designs for Rumple is the Bias Shawl by Hand Maiden. The two-row pattern repeat is easy to memorize and the results are striking.
For an interesting shape, try the Simple Shawlette by Petra Breakstone. It uses garter stitch and yarnovers to create the body, while the Rumple offers a playful texture and vibrant, saturated color. The circular shape hugs the shoulders to sit on snugly, and can move from day to night.

We’re down to our last two days; the time has flown by! Our yarn for today’s feature is Hand Maiden Lace Silk, a 100% silk lace weight yarn with drape and shine to last for ages. Each skein has 900m of pure decadence, and takes color to heights of saturation. If you’ve had your eye on a special lace shawl, just looking for the perfect yarn to match, this is a fabulous choice. For instance, more than two dozen knitters have used it with the popular Aeolian Shawl by Elizabeth Freeman.
If crocheting is your thing, then the Archangel shawl by Katya Novikova is a gorgeous choice. This stunning shawl features top-down construction for a traditional triangular shape, and makes beautiful use of arches, shells, and picots, oh my!

The luxury continues with Day 10, as we feature Hand Maiden Cashmere 4 Ply! This 100% cashmere yarn is just as soft, warm, and light as you could want. It’s begs to be worn as close as possible, as often as possible. Just petting it in the skein is a delight to the senses. To keep things as simple as possible and let the yarn do the talking, try Devin’s Toque by Hand Maiden. It uses an easy 2×2 ribbing to maximize every yard of the 50g skein, and is suitable for man, woman, or child.
For something a bit more challenging, we love the Thermis Cowl by Kris Knits. The subtle tailored look of the buttoned half-opening lets the knitter choose a pair of buttons to either dress up or dress down the piece. With two sizes available, this cowl could also be used for either a man or woman.

A yarn to truly celebrate! Today’s feature is so exquisite, we are starting the sale a bit early. Hand Maiden’s Swiss Mountain Cashmere and Silk is as luxurious as you can get when it comes to yarn. It’s as soft as can be, with shine and drape to make you swoon. Great things come in small packages, and at 50g per skein, this yarn is no exception; fear not, though, because a single skein is plenty for an elegant and indulgent accessory. The Tiara Tam by Brittany Wilson is a perfect example. It’s adorable shape takes advantage of the drape while bringing the softness close to your skin.
Bring the tactile delight even closer for a snuggle with the Snowdrop and Rose Red Cowl by Andrea Jurgrau. A single skein in your favorite color will become a winter companion; add a few of your favorite beads to the bottom edge for extra flare.
