Hello Britex readers, this is Mary from Craft Buds and I’m excited to be guest posting here today! I’ve put together a free cadet-style hat pattern for you. Just download the pattern from Craftsy here (you’ll need a free Craftsy account) and we’ll get started. I’ve used two fabrics provided by Britex in my hat, a beautiful midweight herringbone olive & espresso wool for the exterior, and a silky smooth chocolate brown rayon/cupro for the lining. The fabrics are both high quality and were a perfect set of fabrics for a warm and comfortable hat. Click here to read more »

Kika Knaup led an awesome workshop last week that left several—locals and non-locals—wishing they could have joined us. We decided to pull out our camera and document the process so that anyone could give this easy project a try. Please keep in mind that this tutorial does not teach the basics of knitting—though we have linked to some helpful videos. This tutorial will show you just how simple it is to knit almost anything using fabric strips! Let’s get started…
1/2 to 1 yard of two different fabrics – soft knits recommended
scissors or rotary cutter
knitting needles size 35 or 50
It’s not too late to register for the Knit a Loop Scarf Using Fabric workshop on Saturday, November 1—yes, that is the day after Halloween. Local Designer, Kika Knaup, will walk us through the steps of making this simple art scarf. Click here to read more »
