I’ve been working with some fabulous designers to bring you both commercial & free non-commercial inspirations for our yarns and fibres.
A Breeze – Should be able to do this in your sleep. Perfect for beginners.
Some Thought Required – Easy enough, but contains simple patterning that requires attention to process
Entertaining – Moderately challenging, contains patterning and/or techniques that may need to be learned for the project
Outrageous! – The most difficult to work, usually lace work and/or unusual techniques.
(If you feel that any pattern’s grading is incorrect, please let us know!)

We are looking to work with people on all sorts of fibre related projects, not just Knit and Crochet!
Knit and Crochet are the communities I reached out to in the first instance for inspiration (as I’m a knitter, it was a logical place to start!) but there are so many possibilities with the silks that also need “patterns” for other people to get their inspiration from:- Embroidery, Lace, Papermaking, Machine Embelishing, Felting, Tapestry, Cross-Stitch… the list of possibilities is endless!
