Now is the time for a bit of real Canadiana: a classic Hudson's Bay baby blanket or throw for chilly evenings. The original blankets were rough and scratchy, but this new blanket is so soft and comfy, knit with a warm, but easy-care, acrylic-merino blend. The pattern is easy to knit, so everyone can make their own Hudson's Bay blanket before the cold winds start to blow.
The Hudson's Bay Blanket/Throw kit includes nine 100g skeins of Cascade Pacific yarn (in all the right colours), a colour picture of the finished project, and instructions for downloading an electronic copy of the pattern from Ravelry. To top that off, DY will add a printed copy of the pattern, as our gift to you!
The cost for the kit (including the free printed pattern) is just $90. We will have a limited number of the kits available in the shop starting next Wednesday, Oct. 11. Make sure you get yours by purchasing the kit (including the free printed pattern) here, then you can pick it up in the shop at your leisure! No worries or stress. Can't make it into the shop? Add flat-rate shipping ($15) to the cart and we will ship the kit within Canada by Canada Post.

Our project is the Sting Like a...Hat pattern. Pre-class assignment is to knit the first 2" of ribbing, so register now and receive the Sting Like a Hat pattern to get started (it is a Dartmouth Yarns original pattern). Yarn kits (120g of Cascade Eco wool, chunky weight) are available for only $10. Click HERE to register now!

Want a little more help with finishing the fringe on the Surrey Shawl (get the free download from Ravelry through June 30 here)? See the updated, up-close video here.
The first Dartmouth Yarns pattern to be published on Ravelry is a hit. It is an easy, but fashionable, knit in garter stitch. The special treat is that you knit in the fringe and easily unravel it when all the knitting is done. The pattern is just $3.50 CDN and you can purchase your copy here:
For all of our local folk, bring in a copy of your online receipt for the pattern showing the price paid, and we'll give you $3.50 off your next purchase (limit one discount per customer, cannot be combined with other special offers, single transaction, no cash value, & not valid toward classes, gift cards, special orders, or prior purchases).
Also, be a dear and favorite or add the pattern to your queue on Ravelry (this helps push us up in the rankings). Then check out all the gorgeous yarns you can use for the shawl; the pattern works with any gauge, any yarn, and you choose how much to use. One 100g skein of fingering yarn--like Fleece Artist, Cascade Heritage, or any sock yarn--works great! We'll have more patterns in the coming months--watch for opportunities to be a test knitter.
