Wear the yarn ball earrings from Malojos and bring along a Four Corner Bag from Cocoknit. It’s a bag that you can easily open up and get to the bottom of. It’s perfect for hanging on the arm of a chair, knitting out of, and ideal for carrying produce, take-out, or yarn.

Join Us and Make Your Own Corcoran Sweater

Here’s what one knitter had to say about the Corcoran sweater:

I loved this KAL for many reasons. This is only the second sweater I have ever completed, and I did it in less than 2 months! I have started many sweaters but for one reason or another they did not work out. The videos and tips that came along with the pattern were priceless. Some addressed reasons that my sweater failures did not work out (sleeve cap gauge), some helped with techniques that I have not yet mastered (seaming in particular comes to mind), and some addressed things I never knew (casting on it pattern). Thanks so much, Patty! It was awesome.
