The Chill Chaser Cardigan by Sylvia Häger is perfect for layering, this figure-flattering cardi offers plenty of ways to have some fun with color. Two versions are available, color blocked and striped; choose from girls’ and womens’ sizes. Knit in easy-care Spud & Chloë Sweater.

Snowflake_Pullover_RGB.jpg

The Snowflake Pullover by Kirsten Kapur is a light & lovely pullover knit with our superwash Sweater yarn. While it may look complex, the lace motif is easy to memorize and will stitch up in a flash!

OneFineDay_RGB.jpg

The One Fine Day Top by Bobbi IntVeld is an adorable jumper-style top to knit for your little one. Whether you choose bold bands of color or subtle stripes, it’s sure to be an every day favorite when knit in Spud & Chloë Fine.

CrabbyCap_RGB.jpg

The Crabby Cap by Wendy Bernard is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face! This colorful cap is available in your choice of two versions: a simple colorwork slouch in our worsted-weight Sweater or a slightly more challenging beanie style worked in our sock-weight Fine.

The Lightning Wrap by Kyoko Nakayoshi is cleverly crafted using a bit of short row shaping. Knit in Spud & Chloë Fine, it’s the perfect layering piece year-round.

ColonelHenley_RGB (1).jpg

The Colonel Henley by Elizabeth Green Musselman is a modern twist on the classic Henley; knit from the top down, this updated version features short row shaping and deep ribs at the sleeve and placket. Knit in easy-care Spud & Chloë Sweater, it’s sure to be an instant favorite!

WingTipCowl_RGB.jpg

The Wing Tip Cowl by Katie Mayer was inspired by the wing-to-wing flight patterns of migratory birds. Each cowl knits up in a jiffy with super-bulky weight Spud & Chloë Outer!

Love is in the Air (Almost)

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and Spud & Chloë has a great alternative to cards and candy; our adorable, affordable, Mug Kits!

Each kit features a cute little Spud & Chloë mug filled with a hank of Spud & Chloë Sweater, and one of three brand new On-the-Run patterns. We guarantee love at first sight.

Venus Mitts

Flirty fingerless mitts are a great way to express appreciation for hardworking hands.

Aphrodite Hat

So pretty in pink, this super-sweet cap works up in a fast and fun-to-knit slip-stitch pattern.

Cupid Cowl

The textural stitch pattern on this cozy cowl is sure to hit the mark!

Spud & Chloë Mug Kits land at your favorite LYS right before Valentine’s Day. Pick them up for your favorite knitters (they’ll last much longer than flowers) or gift one to yourself simply because you *love* to knit!

Patterns, yarn, and mugs are also sold separately.

Chilling Out

It’s been well below freezing for most of the Midwest, ice storms are wreaking havoc in parts of the southern states, and big snow storms are on the way for the East Coast. The winter solstice is yet to be official (one more day to go), but there’s no doubt about the winter weather. It’s cold out there!

The Whole Gang Gaiter in Spud & Chloë Outer.

Luckily we have just the project for the freezing temperatures and fast-approaching holidays: the Whole Gang Gaiter. Two hanks of Spud & Chloë Outer and an evening or two of knitting are all it takes to whip up this winter warmer.

Whole Gang Gaiter in Sunkissed & Sugar Plum (left), and with Leftovers (right).

Solid, striped, or color-blocked, this is a fast and fun project; so much so that last year I made a gaiter for each one of my coworkers.

Jason keeps warm in his Buoy Whole Gang Gaiter.

They’ve gotten plenty of use throughout the year. Here’s Jason (he sends your favorite yarns off to your LYS), keeping warm on a fishing trip.

Mermaid, Leapfrog, & Fairy Tale.
