  • New Patterns

    Some lovely new patterns by Elizabeth Smith of The Brown Stitch have arrived at Tolt.  Clare, the shop manager, used only two skeins of Malabrigo Chunky in Rhodesian to make this beautiful, yet simple, cowl.

     

     

     

    Come in and see more of The Brown Stitch patterns including New Canaan and Acadia Loop, using The Fibre Company's Road to China Light and Acadia.
