Brown Eyed Susan Prize Giveaway

This week on the blog, we celebrate the release of our most popular pattern from Juju’s Loops ~ Brown Eyed Susan and share some Uncommon Thread love with a prize giveaway.

We have a Pom Pom trunk show in store and some more EYF news to share, so read on!

Brown Eyed Susan

Brown Eyed Susan was the cover knit and most popular pattern from our book Juju’s Loops. We auctioned off the last copy of Juju’s Loops at the beginning of the new year. There are no more books left!

However, we’ve published a few of the patterns as individuals, such as the Cedar Shake Mitts, and the Oak Knot Hat.  Now, Brown Eyed Susan will join them as a printed pattern and a PDF download.

Brown Eyed Susan in Uncommon Thread BFL Singles

Brown-Eyed Susan is a crescent-shaped shawl with petal pleats at the bottom edge. It can be knit in one solid colour, striped with a matching or contrast colour petal pleat border, or given a “brown eye” by knitting the first 23 rows in a solid colour.

We love the cover sweater, Durumi designed by Isabell Kraemer, which uses the gorgeous Daruma Genmou DK. It’s very soft and lofty. Perfect for a cool spring day!
