Plump! And Some Great Free Patterns

Plump has been in the shop for a while, but I don't think we've ever talked about it. I recently stumbled upon a set of free patterns from Churchmouse that use Plump Superchunky and Plump DK, so it seems like the right time! Even if it is August.
We have some pretty shades of the big stuff left in the shop (mixed in here with some Big Rad Bulky), and a nice full range of the DK.
These patterns from Churchmouse Yarn and Teas are free and available on their site. The have a great Fisherman's Rib Beanie, a Fisherman's Rib Cowl, and a Fisherman's Rib Muffler.

The great thing about these patterns, aside from being super simple and classic designs, is that they are all written for four gauges! You can knit the beanie if the DK and a big ol' scarf in the superchunky, and they will be matchy, if that's your thing.

If you've never tried fisherman's rib, I promise that it's fun and easy. The resulting fabric is extra squishy and thick, making it the perfect thing for the cold weather that will eventually return to Portland.

Churchmouse also offers this sweet Garter Stripe Scarf, and Mrs. Moon, the manufacturers of Plump, offer several patterns for sale using their yarns.
