This year we are particularly excited to share 2 FibreFest patterns with you. 

 

That's right! This year we have both a knit AND a crochet pattern. Two talented designers have been working hard to bring you a choice for this year's FibreFest.

 

Debra Kinsey Knits presents the knitted FibreFest Shawl 2019 (complete with scarf option).

Ruth Buchanan presents the crocheted cowl Gathering of Friends at FibreFest 2019.

 

So much choice! Choose one. Choose both. Either way, have fun, and be sure to bring your creations to show off at FibreFest 2019.

 

These patterns will be free to download until FibreFest 2019.

BristolIvyRavelry

We had so much fun with the FibreFest knit-a-long that we thought we should have another one! This time, it’s the ‘Bristol-along’. To celebrate Bristol’s visit and participation at the Conference in July, we are now encouraging all participants to knit any of her designs and wear it (or them) at the Welcome Reception on the Friday night. What a great way to show our appreciation, don’t you think?

Cast On is from 12 March 2019 and there will be a thread in our Ravelry group and we also encourage you to share your progress and finished items on social media using the following hashtags:

#knittersguildnsw
#bristolivyknitalong
#kgnswcon2019

Visit Bristol Ivy’s website, sign up for her newsletter and benefit from a discount on her Ravelry store patterns. We are aware that Bristol Ivy is a knitwear designer, but we hope
our crocheters will join in with some Bristol Ivy-inspired crocheted items.
