February is an always an exciting time of year. Winter is still holding on, but there are hints of a return to Spring! We’d like to take the opportunity in this blog post to share new patterns that have been published in Kraemer Yarns, patterns from our friends, and plans for spring!
New to the forever free patterns page at KraemerYarns.com are the two items shown above. Winter winds still whip around so stay cozy with the Staggered Rib Chunky Cowl! It’s a quick knit with Perfection Chunky. The new hat pattern may be called the Autumn Hat, referencing the colorway used, but with the cute chevron pattern and your favorite colors of Naturally Nazareth, you’ll wear it as much as you can!
These patterns were recently published to Ravelry, and that’s where you can purchase them or add them to your library and queue. The Garden Trellis socks and Petal Quilt Socks are both by Clara Masessa in Kraemer Yarns Sterling Silk & Silver. Paula Herbert has been knitting hats for the Little Hats, Big Hearts campaign by the American Heart Association. She has made her pattern for newborn hats in Perfection Worsted and Perfection Chunky available as a free Ravelry download!

Welcome to the blog of Kraemer Yarns!
Kraemer Textiles has been custom spinning yarn for many types of industries for over 100 years, including apparel, carpet, home furnishings, industrial and craft. Our hand knitting line, Kraemer Yarns, began in 2005. Today we would like to share with you ways in which we can connect with you, the handcrafter who is using our yarn line. We would also like to put the spotlight on Perfection Yarn, a yarn that is….well, perfect!
Perfection is a Go-To Yarn!
Perfection is a blend of U.S. merino wool and acrylic. Before we bring any yarn to market, we rigorously test market it to knitters and we work with them until every aspect is just right! Perfection is available in DK, Worsted, Chunky, and Super Bulky weights in more than 65 colorways. You will find this yarn is wonderfully springy, works up smoothly and is durable. It is a perfect choice for your next project, whomever the recipient! Perfection is an easy-care yarn, it can be machine washed and dried. We hope you will ask for it at your local yarn shop. If you have trouble finding a local retailer, you can purchase online with free shipping!
Project and Pattern Inspiration for Perfection
At KraemerYarns.com you will find free patterns available to download for all of our yarns. We offer patterns that are just right for a beginner to build on their skill set and for the advanced knitter ready to tackle a complex cable.
The Riverpath Scarf is our featured Pattern of the Month. Two skeins of Perfection Worsted are all you need to knit this great unisex accessory designed by Eleanor Swogger. The Airy Openwork Tunic is a crochet tunic top, great for layering now over a swimsuit or come fall with leggings. Marybeth Temple designed the pattern, found in the June 2015 I Like Crochet! magazine. Summer is a great time for small projects like the Winter Lake Neckwarmer, by Kristen Stoltzfus in the Crochet! Fall 2015 special issue. Combine your favorite three colorways of Perfection for your own unique cowl.
