Happy May and May the 4th be with you! Today we’re excited to introduce you to the new BLOOM collection from Rowan.
Rowan has always produced gorgeous patterns for babies and children, and this spring they are debuting the BLOOM collection. Two books of patterns designed for mom and baby by Erika Knight are worked in Summerlite DK, Baby Cashsoft Merino and Rowan’s new Cotton Wool.
We’ve also got several new Rowan samples in the shop thanks to our lovely sample knitters – let us help you plan your next project! Ginger by Lisa Richardson is a boxy cardigan with elegant details, worked up in Denim Revive. This sample was knit by Sarah.
Aperol from Essential Summer Brights is a triangular shawl worked with one strand of Summerlite DK and one strand of Kidsilk Haze held together throughout. This gorgeous pink version was knit by Courtney.
Finally in Rowan news, we’ve marked down Baby Merino Silk DK! Stock up on this gorgeous yarn at a great price!
Baby Merino Silk DK
- 66% virgin wool, 34% silk

A super-soft blend of Merino wool and Tussah silk gives this yarn such a gentle touch, perfectly suited to projects for babies and children. Baby Merino Silk DK is machine washable too, so there’s no need to sacrifice practicality for luxury. With a playful palette made up of pastels and stronger shades, you are sure to find a colour that fits your needs, whether you’re looking for a classic baby shade or something a little brighter.
But wait! There are more samples! Check out the Yesica Wrap from Manos del Uruguay, knit up by Shawna. Aren’t those colors gorgeous?
That’s all for today, but we’ve still got some big things planned for spring so be sure to keep tuning in on Tuesdays!
