Meet Still Square-ish, an updated version of the wildly popular top many of us made last summer called Square-ish.

This new one is knit with Shibui Pebble, a lovely light-weight yarn made of cashmere, silk and wool. The new design features added details like a lengthened back and a subtle lined stitch pattern. Yet it’s still defined by its simplicity.

Just two rectangles with seams, it’s very easy to knit. And it’s even easier to wear – it looks great on anyone, with any outfit!

Here are a few people modeling our shop sample. After trying it on, they all chose to knit their own out of various colors of Shibui Pebble. We can’t wait to see them when they finish.

Want to make one too? We’ll be working on them together this Spring.

Join our Still Square-ish Knitalong every Saturday from 3-5pm.

If you’re still working on the original Square-ish top, you’re welcome to join our Knitalong too! We know you can get it done in time to wear this summer! Whether you want to finish that, or start the new one, let’s bring all our rectangular things together. Hilary, designer of both garments, will be available to help and motivate you.

There’s no fee or registration requirement. And you don’t need to come every Saturday. Just come when you can – any Saturday, anytime between 3-5pm.

We look forward to seeing you!

The shop occasionally hosts special events, book signings, trunk shows, and sales. Private events can also be arranged at the shop by request.

Perhaps you'd like to have a birthday party centered around a knitting lesson. Or a baby shower during which everyone learns to knit a square for a baby blanket. Or a corporate networking event that features knitting instruction. Or a book club that encourages participants to knit while discussing the book. Nina: a well-knit shop is available for these and other special events.
