You all love my Friday Freebies, that’s for sure. Yesterday I stumbled upon another knitting blog with regular free pattern Fridays: the blog of Espace Tricot, a yarn shop base in Montreal Canada.
Looking for information what Espace Tricot is all about, I found the following paragraph on their website:
“Casting off their previous lives in non-profit management and teaching, Melissa and Lisa opened Espace Tricot in 2010. As much a gathering place as a retail space, the shop’s inspiring atmosphere caters to fiber lovers of all ages and skill levels, attracting a loyal clientele. The store stocks a large and carefully curated selection of yarns and fibers, notions, accessories, books and patterns. Espace Tricot also offers many classes and workshops where new knitters, crocheters, and spinners can get started and more advanced customers can hone their skills.”
I discovered their website via a post on the blog of Brittany – who recently contacted me when she wrote an article about my own blog, you can read it online here.
If you’re looking for a project bag, they carry ZigZagStitches‘s lovely zippered pouches, too!
Their beautiful photography and useful knitting pattern resources made me stay for more than an hour, browsing all the beautiful free knitting patterns shared.
My Ravelry queue exploded.
It seems like multi-color shawls are the new must-have in the knitting universe.
Maybe my latest shawl pattern, Josephine, has been created in anticipation of this trend? Who knows. Anyway, Escape Tricot is one of the knitting blogs 2015 you should consider adding to your reading list.
