Celebrate with us!

This is our 700th issue of KnitBits! 

That means we've been delivering issues of KnitBits directly to your email inbox for nearly 14 years! We greatly appreciate all of our KnitBits readers and Berroco fans—without you, we'd have nothing to talk about. 

There have been many, many changes in the yarn world since we started sending Berroco KnitBits, and our industry is continuing to change and evolve. One of the biggest changes has been in how you, the knitters and crocheters of the world, learn about new yarns and patterns, so we're asking you to help us out with this simple and quick survey.  

As a thank you, we'll be giving away a Berroco project bag and mini-balls of yarn to 25 random survey takers. Winners will be drawn on Tuesday, March 21, so be sure to take the survey soon. Entry into the giveaway is optional, and you must leave your email address so we can contact you. 

Take the survey now!
Now that the "business" portion is out of the way, let's get down to celebrating with 7 free patterns!
Up first is Lakenvelder, a pattern originally released as part of Booklet #293 Family. Lakenvelder is knit from the bottom up in a slip-stitch pattern that mimics ribbing but allows for a relaxed and easy fit. Saddle shoulders and a zippered front lend a tailored feel to this casual men's cardigan. Since it's knit in Berroco Vintage®, you've got tons of color options at your disposal.

Next is Umiah, a layering tee knit in Berroco Ultra® Alpaca Light. A mix of textured stitches help keep the knitting fun and interesting. Originally from Booklet #279 Ultra Alpaca and Ultra Alpaca Light, this tee would be a perfect piece for seasonal transitions.

We're really excited about the return of Berroco Suede™, so we also brought back the Belle Star skirt pattern! This kicky skirt was originally published in Booklet #229 Adornments and is a very popular pattern from that book. Not into knitted skirts? You could wear it as a poncho.

For the young ones in your life, there's Ferris, designed by Norah Gaughan for Booklet #291 Berroco Comfort. The book featured three weights of Comfort, and Ferris is knit with the DK version. With its ribbed front placket and sweet back gathers, this is a great pattern for a young child. Best of all, Berroco Comfort® DK is a supremely easy-care, wool-free yarn!

Kaino is a long, open-front vest knit in Berroco Ultra® Alpaca with ribbed front edges and easy cap sleeves. This easy piece was featured in the much-loved Norah Gaughan Vol 1. As you know, Berroco Ultra Alpaca is available in 75 choices, so the possibilities for this vest are endless!

Modelled after traditional gansey patterns, Raam features cable patterns at the front and back yoke, as well as the sleeve cuffs and bottom hem. Knit in Berroco Comfort®, Raam is an easy-care sweater, so it can go in the washing machine with no worries—which is great, because this pattern is sized for children through adult men.

Finally, there's Skuld, a simple bag with a lot of texture. Originally designed for Berroco Love It, we think it would work especially well in Berroco Suede™
