Oh Happy Day! The New Pattern Collection is Here!

Hey Y'all,
As you know, in the past few years Hill Country Weavers has gotten into the design game in a big way. With the release of three pattern books, it's safe to say HCW is firmly established. Well today we take the next big step with the release of a new, bigger and better Prairie Bliss Collection! Yay us! This version, officially known as Prairie Bliss Book 1, includes seven new patterns and four favorites we've presented before. Inspired by the rolling hills west of Austin, the collection brings a taste of Central Texas to wherever you are with knit and crochet patterns designed by Austinites and friends of Hill Country Weavers. We've taken yarns from some of our favorite small yarn mills and dyers to make up a soft neutral palette accented with bright pops of floral colors.

Below are some visual bon mots to give you an idea of what to expect. You can buy the book online at the Hill Country Weavers website or purchase individual patterns on the Hill Country Weavers Ravelry Page. Also, don't miss our ad in the latest edition of the most excellent Twist Collective, an online knitting mag.
