I’ve really had a thing for the light and lacy lately! These new Firre Socks kept catching my eye on Ravelry this week so I just had to share them.

Inspired by Shetland fir cones, Joanna Ignatius designed the Firre Socks with a beautiful lace motif to mimic those majestic trees. The solid colors and great twist of Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering yarn really lends itself to showing off this stitch pattern.

Saffron would make a pair of socks like the photo but I don’t think you could go wrong with these socks in any color! They’re stunning.

Plus, the sock pattern has instructions for cuff down or toe up knitting. How great is that?

What to Make: Tegna by Caitlin Hunter of Boyland Knitworks

Welcome to our weekly feature, What to Make Wednesday! The yarns here at Ewe Ewe are so versatile and I love to share ideas about what you can knit with them.

Looking for a light and lacy tee for spring and summer? Look no further than the wildly popular Tegna knitting pattern from Boyland Knitworks.

This sweater is a showstopper! From the flowy fabric to the beautiful lace hem, you’ll be sure to wear this tee all year round. Think how nice it will look in the summer and how pretty it would look as a shell under a jacket for work in the fall.

Fluffy Fingering merino yarn from Ewe Ewe would work perfectly for Tegna. The gauge of the sweater is a loose 22 sts over 4” which I get using a size US 6 needle. That means this project would knit quickly and practically fly off the needles!

Any color of Fluffy Fingering yarn would work so well in this project! Choose a neutral like the Charcoal one above or go for a bright Berry, springy Saffron or rich Red Velvet.

Plus, it’s a great price point in Fluffy Fingering. You’ll need 4 to 7 skeins depending on your size which works out to be $40-$70 dollars for a new, gorgeous top you’ll wear again and again.

Choose your color combo: Ewe Ewe Yarns Fluffy Fingering Merino yarn.


How much yarn do I need?

Sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL)
Finished circumference at bust: 35.5” (38”, 43.25”, 48.25”, 53.5”, 58.5”, 63.5”) 

Fitting notes from the designer: This sweater is designed to be slightly oversized, with approximately 5-10” of positive ease around the bust. The sleeves are fitted, so make sure you pay attention to the sleeve circumference when choosing your size. (Schematic is provided in the pattern.)

Yarn Amounts: 4 (4, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7) balls of Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering merino yarn

These new Pizza Party Socks are by the same designer that brought us the magical These Socks are Bananas earlier this year. I love her emoji level knitting style!

I think you could whip up these socks in some cute colors of Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering merino sock yarn. I’d put together Brushed Silver for the sock, Wheat for the crust, Saffron is the cheese and Red Velvet can be some smoky pepperoni. Delicious!

Or you could go brighter and have Vanilla socks to mimic the pizza box, Wheat crust, Citrus Pop cheese and that smoky rich Red Velvet pepperoni.

Have fun with the colors because pizza IS fun! Mmm, pizza…

Each Socks on Saturday highlights a sock pattern that you can use to knit yourself a pair of socks with Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering yarn.

Summer is coming and these cute lace socks are just want you need! How fun to admire your handiwork while you enjoy a sunny afternoon view.

Grillies are a free ankle sock pattern designed by Tabitha Jarvis. They’re meant to be light and breathable for those warmer months. Take a look at the easy-to-knit lace!

I love the designer’s inspiration for these socks:

Grillies are a summery, breathable ankle sock with a more rounded toe. The name comes from the first pair I knit; they reminded me of grilled meat on a barbecue because of their color and the lace pattern.

Perfect! Grab your two colors of Fluffy Fingering sock yarn and get knitting for that BBQ!

I’m thinking that a Berry heel and toe would look super cute with Saffron grills. Or what about the original look with Red Velvet and Vanilla? Charcoal and Aquamarine? All good ideas!

Or maybe you want to go totally crazy cute and knit colorful pair of wild banana socks. Yes, you do!

What if you did a Berry background, Citrus Pop bananas, Forest Fern stems and Iris Blossom accents?

A richer color traditional sock is possibly your banana of choice. Try a Vanilla background with Saffron bananas, Forest Fern stems and Charcoal accents. Tasty!
