Chore Time Bobble Hat Knitting Pattern Digital Download
A quick knit, reminiscent of fisherman sweaters, and perfect for winter chore time on the farm. Three sections make this an enjoyable knit, the ribbing, blackberry stitch section, and the bobble section. This pattern makes a hat which fits a head between 21 and 22 inches in circumference. I have made larger/smaller sizes by simply changing my needle size.
Gauge: 18sts = 4 inches
Needle: US size 7 circular needle or size needed to obtain proper gauge
Yarn: 3 oz. of Gotland Wool Company Worsted Weight Yarn
Ewe and Lambs Rug Hooking Kit-large
This winter I have had fun doing some rug hooking with our Gotland fleece and yarn. I have designed two patterns to share with you!
This sweet Gotland ewe and her twin lambs kit comes with a primitive hook, and the sheep pattern drawn onto a piece of Scottish Burlap and stretched onto a wooden frame. It also comes with a handful of our Gotland fleece. All you need to add is some yarn for the back and legs and yarn for the background.
Once you have completed the design, use a flat screwdriver to lift the staples from the wooden frame, releasing the burlap. Then you may either turn it into a pillow or a small wall hanging! I have pictured my rug hooking in progress for some inspiration! The reusable wooden frame measures 12 inches x 14 inches.
Gotland Shawl Pattern
This unique shawl pattern features a braided front, eliminating the need for awkward knots or shawl pins to keep it in place. It is the perfect hands-free shawl for the busy, creative person. An easy to follow lace pattern gives the shawl a light and delicate look.
Deby Lake’s Braided Glory Shawl pattern uses 6 skeins of our Gotland yarn.

Needle Felting Pattern – Sheep Guardians
We are thrilled to be able to offer this needle felting pattern from a local Vermont fiber artist, Neysa Russo. Neysa creates amazing needled felted tapestries using her own designs and patterns. This lovely pattern, The Sheep Guardians, comes traced on heavy paper for you to transfer to your choice of medium. The bold lines make it easy to trace onto aida cloth, needlepoint canvas, or our white pre-felt. The design measures 21 x 31 inches.
Pictured, you will see the finished tapestry that I felted using Neysa’s pattern.
New England Hat Kit with Mary Jane Mucklestone Pattern
New England Hat Kit Featuring Mary Jane Mucklestone’s Wildflower Cap
Wanting to offer a true New England winter hat knitting kit, we joined with Mary Jane Mucklestone of Maine to offer this special kit combining her Wildflower Cap pattern and our Gotland gray yarn. Each kit contains a hard copy of Mary Jane’s pattern and our Gotland yarn. I have over-dyed some of our pale gray yarn for the color work section and the pom pom on top of the hat. You will also receive a coupon code which will allow you to download the pattern into your ravelry account library for future reference.
I asked the mill to spin this yarn with a little extra wool so that it would make a cozy hat, perfect for fighting the cold New England winters. It knits up nicely on size 7 needles (or size needed to obtain the right gauge). The color work section is perfect for the person who wants to try their hand at knitting with two colors. Mary Jane includes a chart making it easy to follow and to create the lovely wildflower as you knit.
We just have a few kits left. The following colors are available:
