Jimmy Beans Employees in Print!

Back in March, we received a notification that Soho Publishing was looking for designs for their next 60 Quick Knits Book using Cascade Yarns. The book is officially called 60 Quick Knits from America's Yarn Shops: Everyone's Favorite Projects in Cascade 220. Several of us Beans here at JBW submitted designs, and much to our surprise and excitement, two of them were accepted! Both Heather and myself (Kristen) have designs in the book, and we are so excited we can finally talk about it as it's due out next month!



Heather's design is a Colorblock Reversible Cap knit in Cascade 220 Superwash. She originally designed and knit this cap for her husband, and it's since become his absolute favorite hat. When the opportunity came up for her to submit the design, she went for it and was so thrilled when it was accepted! This hat will be her first published design, and she's even designed another piece since then that will be in the next Noro book! We are so excited that she's unleashed her creativity!



My design is a simple shawlette with a garter stitch body that is knit lengthwise with a simple Shell Lace Pattern along one edge. The Shell Lace Shawlette is knit in Cascade 220 Fingering, which is truly a delight to work with. The result is a feminine and cozy shawlette that can be worn with just about anything!


Both Heather and I feel so honored to be a part of this book on behalf of Jimmy Beans! Thanks so much to the fine folks at Soho Publishing and Cascade yarns, for including us in this collection! 60 Quick Knits from America's Yarn Shops will be out next month, but if you are excited to reserve your copy, please feel free to place a pre-order and we'll ship it as soon as it arrives!

To see the rest of the designs in 60 Quick Knits from America's Yarn Shops, be sure to check out the book's Ravelry page.

Happy Knitting!
Kristen
