7 Best-Selling Knitting + Crochet Patterns from Ewe Ewe Yarns

7 years ago I started Ewe Ewe Yarns with 7 colors of Wooly Worsted and a big dream – I wanted to own my own yarn company and build a business that I loved – and somehow here we are! Thank you for your years of support and emails of encouragement. I've enjoyed growing this business more than I ever thought I would!

I'm excited to continue Ewe Ewe for another 7 years or maybe more. Take a look at the knitting and crochet patterns that have topped the charts here at Ewe Ewe Yarns.

Cheers to 7 years!

{How much yarn do I need?} Fern & Feather Sweater by Jennifer Steingass

Changing yarns, or substituting the yarn is easy when you know what you need. In this series I talk about a knitting or crochet pattern and how much Ewe Ewe yarn you'd need to complete it.

Wow! Meet Fern & Feather. This beautiful sweater designed by Jennifer Steingass for Knit.Love.Wool. is simple yet breathtaking. Fern & Feather is a seamless sweater with a yoke highlighted inspired by nature. Here's how much Wooly Worsted yarn you'd need to make this sweater: 

Sizes: Bust: 30.75 (33, 35.5, 39, 41) (43.5, 46.25, 49, 51.5) (54.25, 57.25, 59.5) inches
Wooly Worsted Yarn Amounts: 
   MC: 8 (9, 10, 11, 12) (13, 14, 14, 15) (16, 17, 17) skeins
   CC: 1 (1, 2, 2, 2) (2, 2, 2, 2) (2, 2, 2) skeins

There are so many great color combinations you could put together to make this sweater your own. Here are a few examples that I found on Ravelry that would look great in a Wooly Worsted combination or two.

A Wooly Worsted yarn color combo of Saffron and Vanilla would be great. Or maybe Charcoal and Brushed Silver?

You could make this sweater in Sky Blue with a hint of Red Poppy Wooly Worsted on top. Or try Brushed Silver with Lavender detail. 

See Wooly Worsted yarn here. Get the pattern here. Visit a Ewe Ewe yarn shop.

Remember that yarn amounts are never exact. Each knitter has their own tension when holding the yarn and that can change the final yardage amounts. We come close with our skein numbers but it's always smart to grab an extra ball or two just in case!


8 Sweater Patterns to Knit using Wooly Worsted Yarn from Ewe Ewe

While we have a lot of knitting patterns here at Ewe Ewe Yarns we can't have every idea under the sun. Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted yarn is a great worsted-weight merino yarn that can work for a variety of really popular knitting patterns. 

8 Sweater Patterns to knit using Wooly Worsted yarn from Ewe Ewe

Changing yarns, or substituting the yarn is easy when you know what you need. Luckily most sweater pattern descriptions on Ravelry tell you how much yardage it takes to complete a project. Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted yarn has 95 yards per ball so if a sweater takes 915 yards to complete then you would buy 10 balls of yarn. (915 yards needed ÷ 95 yards on a ball = 9.63 or 10 balls of yarn).

About the yarn

Wooly Worsted merino yarn comes in a beautiful palette. Take a look at our Brushed Silver or Wheat for a pretty neutral shade. Or maybe you'd like a rich Sapphire blue or Teal green sweater.

Ravelry Roundup: Big, Bulky Hats!

Lots of knitters use Ewe Ewe yarns and they share their patterns on Ravelry. There's so many great ideas and I love to see how people use my yarn and turn it into amazing projects! Here are just a few.

Craftmumship received her Baa Baa Bulky yarn when we partnered with KNITCRATE. She decided to make the popular Fidra hat with a skein of Black Licorice.

User avn7482 made the Pineapple Expressions hat using Baa Baa Bulky merino in colors Black Licorice and Berry. It looks so cute on her!

Knitter rie4 knit a nice, classic Man Hat

Doubled up Baa Baa Bulky for even faster knitting, my 2-Hour Pussy Cat Hat is a breeze to knit!

And lastly, Craftmumship's Garter Ear Flap Hat in Brushed Silver Baa Baa Bulky. It looks like a little piece of perfection. Get the free hat pattern (it can be made in any size for anyone in the family!) from Purl Soho.
