Yarn Garden is affectionately known as the “mothership” of yarn shops with three rooms packed full of yarn from floor to ceiling, and a room with thousands of books, patterns and needles. Their weekly and monthly events keep us hopping and socially connected to our dear customers. The Knit Nite bunch meets every Tuesday evening in the store and our monthly Friday night Pub Knitting crowd gathers at the Barley Mill Pub.

Special Patterns

Hosford-Abernethy Socks (knit)
by Arwen Golden
Every day 6,000 bikers pass through the Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood to cross the Hawthorne Bridge to reach their downtown destination. Worked gracefully from the toe to the top, these socks are inspired by our neighborhood’s roundabouts and broad, leafy avenues.

  Barley Mill Beanie (crochet)
by Emily Devlin
The Barley Mill Beanie is a modern take on a retro pattern. Crochet some colorful granny squares for the brim, then join them into a band and work the top of the hat in double crochet. Worked with just two skeins of Classic Elite’s gorgeous, colorful Liberty Wool, this hat puts the “hip” in “hippie.”
