    I hope someone answers my post. I am new to crocheting/knitting. I only make scarfs and blankets (squares or rectangles) I would love to find a book where I can teach myself from scratch. Simple terms for beginners. What would you recommend? I watch the youtube videos but sometimes it’s hard to follow. I love your yarn. buy it all the time at ACMoore. Hope to visit your store in the Summer.

      Hi there, first off, try stopping by LionBrand.com and clicking on “Learning Center” for our “Learn to Knit” and “Learn to Crochet” sections, which have free videos, diagrams, AND explanations.

      If you definitely want something offline, Lion Brand has a couple of books on our website that are nice introductory books, including:

      You Can Knit!
      You Can Crochet!
      Crochet Essentials

      Finally, you may also want to check out “The Complete Photo Guide to Knitting” and “The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet by Margaret Hubert, who has taught and been a special guest at the Studio several times or “Knitting in Plain English” and “Crochet in Plain English” by Maggie Righetti. There are a ton of resources out there, so good luck!

    I’m a beginner and like outdoors. I would like to make a warm pair of mittens. Which is best for my application ? Knitting or Crochet ? Thanks, Thomas

      Hi Thomas, you can really make a pair of mittens with either craft, as both crafts can make an assortment of items. The qualities of the fabrics created by knitting and crochet are different however. For instance, most knitted fabrics are more stretchy than crochet fabrics, and crochet fabrics are often more dense than knit fabrics. Click here for a knit pattern from LionBrand.com or click here for a crochet pattern. Hope that helps!

    I LOVE fisherman’s wool and am glad to see it’s the featured yarn this month. I just wish it was featured on the website right now too!

    Is there any way to purchase knitted swatches of the different Fisherman’s Wool colors (like you’d find in Michaels or joAnn fabrics)? I am planning an afghan and I think I would like to use the Fisherman’s but I am not sure what each color looks like knitted, it is hard to tell with the tweeds.

      Hi Chelly, LionBrand.com does sell sample cards of all of the yarns with strands (not knitted swatches), but they should give you a sense of how they look:http://www.lionbrand.com/6030/PictPage/1922244126.html

      You can also go to LionBrand.com and click on “Our Yarns” and select Fishermen’s Wool. Scroll to the bottom of the product page and click on any of the pattern categories to see the yarn worked up. All of the pattern photos can be zoomed in on to see more detail.

    Would anyone know if there is a simple and plain glove pattern that I can make using Fisherman’s wool? No bells and whistles but just something with a simple ribbed cuff? There is nothing on the Lionbrand website that is just plain. I’ve made socks before using Fisherman’s wool which keep my feet toasty warm and dry when working outdoors in winter. My brother-in-law, a mailman, swears by the several pair I’ve made for him and uses them throughout the winter. I would really love to make gloves using the same wool. Would anyone know where I can find such a pattern?

    You must see Susan Rainey’s Margo Poncho at Ravelry or on The Rainey Sisters blog (2/9/2016 & 1/29/2016). Knit with Fisherman’s Wool held together with heirloom cashmere. Gorgeous!
