Debbie, a fellow Darn Good Yarny emailed me one day with some amazing pictures of a shawl she made for her daughter. She adapted a pattern posted here (don’t worry it’s free) to use with our entire line of Sari Silk Ribbon Yarns. Check these out by clicking here. Isn’t this masterpiece beautiful?
Do you want to see some more pictures of her creation and others? Check out the new section of our webpage that features fellow Darn Good Yarny’ creations!
I got to thinking and you can also take the Solomon’s Knot and make a bed spread too. Wouldn’t that look amazing over a bed in a little girl’s room or your room? Want more info on how to make the Solomon’s Knot? Click Here or watch this video below:

Ok, so I know I am a little bit late, but I have been ever so busy. I wanted to let you all know about my New Years Resolution, I know, your thinking “good grief, what is she on about now?”
Not really a run of the mill resolution. I decided I wanted to make my business, The Art of Zen…….Crochet, a lot more hmmmm….Eco friendly? I know that seems a catch 22 phrase nowadays. Anyways, I want to put some serious effort into recycling, upcycling, repurposing! So here is just the beginning of this. I used some of the premium Recycled Sari Silk and some recycled T shirt Yarn to make this cap!
Enjoy and Happy New Years Crafting!

I love local artists! I have to live vicariously through everyone else who has time to knit because I don’t have time anymore…tres sad. But Rebecca, owner of Rivka Designs, had items which really struck my interest. And she is now making items out of Darn Good Yarn’s Premium Recycled Silk!
Rebecca sells her amazing wares in some high-end shops in northern Cali. She has also been setting up shop at Farmers Markets and Renaissance Fairs for over 6 years!

Check out this video then read on! (Give it a second to load if you have a slow connection)
This worsted weight yarn is handspun in women’s co-ops in Nepal and made from recycled silk. So, not only are you getting an incredibly unique yarn, you’re creating jobs for others.
We got some different colors in outside of the normal Gumball Recycled Silk Balls. Well you’re gonna score on this deal! This yarn pack comes with 4 slightly mismatched Gumball Recycled Silk 100 g balls. And you can choose the pack you want…but HURRY! We only have one pack of each color pack shown in the pictures.
We suggest size US 8-10 (5-6mm, UK/Canada 6-4). Depending on your knitting your gauge will be about 3-4 stitches per inch (13-15 stitches per 10 cm).
Exclusive to Darn Good Yarn: Remember, when you order this yarn with DGY, you’re going to get this great yarn in balls not cumbersome skeins. So, when you get your package, you can get crafting right away and not pay extra for that little luxury!

This tam is stylish and warm. Like the matching scarf, the hat is lacey but not overly feminine. Instructions are included for 3 sizes of brims and the option to add more “slouch”. This is a quick project that can be crocheted in a few hours depending on your crochet level, so this is a perfect pattern for a last minute gift that definitely won’t look last minute! This pattern advanced beginner.
