Welcome to the Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club Gallery 2015 Archive. This is where we seek to showcase all of the fantastic garments members of the club have made using their monthly yarn subscriptions.
‘Shining in the Background’ by Joy McMillan of The Knitting Goddess, was inspired by the image, ‘Sparkle’, by Shutterspot Photography taken at the annual Christkindelmarkt in Millennium Square, Leeds.
Elaine made a Spiral Staircase Scarf as a Christmas gift. The pattern is available for free on Ravelry.
She also teamed it with some Laura’s Loom Bluefaced Leicester/Suri Alpaca in Sulphur to make two pairs of fingerless mitts.
‘Poppy Cascade’ is by Katie Pearce of Sylvan Tiger Yarn, inspired by ‘Wave’ at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Elaine used the purple mini skein to trim a tunic style top for her daughter, Florence.
Elaine also adapted Erika Knight’s ‘Janet and John Scarf’ pattern to make a Christmas gift. A little thinner than the original with a ‘Doctor Who’ feel.
Marie Ryal knitted a cosy hat and mitts set.
‘Valley View’ is by Sherry James of Ba’Tat Hand Dyed Yarns, full of subtle, muted, earthy tones.
Fiona Wardingley has made a pair of cosy Autumn socks. The yarn has knitted up beautifully – looking good Fiona!
‘Apple Bloom’ is by Jodi Rooke of Cuddlebums in Halifax, a nod to early Autumn.
Many thanks to Julia Hansche from Berlin, Germany, for sending us a picture of the socks she has knitted using Jodi’s yarn. Blooming marvelous they are too!

‘Malham Cove’ is by Jaki Bogg of Hot Butter Yarns based in Skipton, full of deep, rich hues as the season prepares for change.
Many thanks to Fiona Wardingley for sending us a picture of the gorgeous socks she has started knitting. Operation Sock Drawer is well and truly underway!
Elaine trimmed a short sleeved raglan sweater for her son, Benjamin, with it, knitting the body with West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 Ply in Chocolate Lime.
‘Fairground Attraction’ is by Joy McMillan of The Knitting Goddess, a vibrant mix of brights which lends itself perfectly to sock patterns.
Fiona Wardingley made a lovely pair of slipper socks and finished them off with felt soles from our friend Amanda over at Joe’s Toes. Great for keeping those tootsies toasty!
Elaine made a shawl of her own design for her daughter’s fifth birthday. She has called it ‘Carousel’.
Later she made a matching pair of fingerless mitts and had enough left to trim the cuffs and fingers of another pair of mitts with it.
‘Aged Wood’ by Louise Lavender of The Cryptozoologist is a mix of subtle tones with hints of burnt orange and deep teal.
Elaine made a shawl of her own design – a simple piece using two skeins and added ribbon weaving to the edge to highlight the orange and teal tones of the yarn. She also used it to trim the cuffs and fingers of a pair of mitts, also of her own design, called ‘Fisher King Mitts’.
Marie Ryal made a lovely shawl that really shows off the yarn’s colours.
Elizabeth Stephenson-Payne has created a wonderful shawl with a gorgeous picot edge.
‘Explosion in a Dye Factory’ by Katie Pearce of Sylvan Tiger Yarns has to be one of our all time favourites of the Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club. The colours are just amazing!
Fiona Wardingley is working on another pair of slipper socks and as you can see, the yarn is knitting up beautifully. And what a gorgeous pattern too!
‘Shepherd’s Delight’ by Jodi Rooke of Cuddlebums captures all of the colours of a perfect sunset in a skein of yarn – oranges, pinks and purples.
Elizabeth Stephenson-Payne decided to make a shawl with her exclusive yarn. A simple pattern but it shows off the colours beautifully. We love it!
Deborah Arneil knitted the ‘I Heart Rainbows Sweater’ by Tin Can Knits – her first children’s top down, in the round sweater. Well done!
‘Lichen Licked’ is by Louise Lavender of The Cryptozoologist and came as a real surprise! The colours and yarn are absolutely beautiful – a 75%/25% Bluefaced Leicester/Nylon mix sock yarn.
Deborah Arneil knitted up this lovely pair of cosy looking socks, guaranteed to keep those tootsies toasty!
Fiona Wardingley created a gorgeous cowl and matching fingerless mitts set and here she is looking truly stunning in them.
Marie Ryal knitted a beautiful shawl that really shows off the colouring of yarn.
‘Plumage’ is by Crystal Flanagan of Domesticated Human. Members received 100g skeins of West Yorkshire Spinners Wensleydale DK and an exclusive pattern, the ‘Plumage Slouchy Tam’, also designed by the very talented Crystal.
Yarn Club member, Fiona Wardingley, knitted up the ‘Plumage Slouchy Tam’ pattern and here she is looking lovely in it!
Gemma Garner, who received the yarn as a birthday present, made a gorgeous pair of fingerless gloves.
Gemma has also blogged about the Yan Tan Tethera Yarn Club and her ‘make’ which you can read here: Gemma Garner’s Blog
Elaine made a button-up vest for her son, Benjamin and had enough left to make a pair of fingerless mitts, also called ‘Plumage’.
‘Crocus’ by Katie Pearce of Sylvan Tiger Yarn based in Leeds. Club members received a 100% Bluefaced Leicester DK base, 100g skein, giving 225m of woolly goodness.
Sarah North created a beautiful cable wrist warmer set using January’s yarn club wool. It’s even got a bit of a checker board pattern to it!
Fiona Wardingley also knitted a lovely pair of warm fingerless mitts which have a diamond shape pattern on them thanks to some clever dyeing technique by Katie! We have to say well done to Fiona as she has been suffering with sciatica and has been unable to knit very much which we know she has found extremely frustrating. The mitts were knitted whilst standing up! We wish Fiona a speedy recovery.
Marie Ryal knitted a beautiful cowl which also does a great job of showing off the colours to their very best.
Elaine made a simple garter stitch shawl with lace edging by combining the yarn with some Rowan Super Fine Merino 4 Ply.
