The Dream Weaver Top Ten
Our Best Selling Projects of 2012

Here they are! The winners. The top ten of 2012! These are the projects most chosen, most created, and most admired by Dream Weaver crafters this past year.

And now, without further adieu, we present the most praised and popular projects of the year.

10. The Artyarns Kaleidoscope Cashmere Shawl Kit arrives beautifully packaged with both the Knit and Crochet patterns and all of the luxurious Artyarns Cashmere you need to create the colorful Cashmere Shawl. Available in Pastels or Jewels tones.
 9. Noni's 6-8-10 Bag can be knit in any of three sizes!  A great little project with a lot of impact. Choose the limited edition Noni 6-8-10 Stitch Red Bag, and Noni Designs has pledged 5% of gross profits earned through the sale of the bag kit to benefit the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) in support of “The Heart Truth,” a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease, sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.  Choose your size. The kit includes everything you need.
8. Super easy Trendsetter Crochet Bodega Ruffle Scarf. Crochet in an evening (or less). Create something extraordinary, in very little time!
7. Knit the amazing Hand Painted Knitting Yarns Wavy Shawl with 1 Hand Painted Knitting Yarns giant skein of yarn.  The kit is dyed to order in opera or theme colorways.
6. Knit Noni's really cool Ridge Bag. Practical and perfect for everyday!
5. Hand Painted Knitting Yarns Fringed Cape.  Made with 7 different hand-dyed yarns. . . just beautiful.
4. Swan's Island Olivia Cowl.  The basketweave stitch is really a "tromp l'oeil" technique that only uses knits and purls but appears to create an over and under woven texture. This version puts a new twist on the whole concept: the stitch pattern is still worked in traditional back and forth rows, but has a simple bias slant built into the fabric, so the texture appears to be worked on the diagonal instead of straight. Worked with only 1 skein of Swans Island Natural Colors 100% Organic Worsted Merino Wool, this little project is such fun to knit!
3. The Artyarns Every Which Way Shawl can be worn many ways, and you can even wear 2 or more together. The pattern includes written and charted instructions and the yarn to make one shawl. The kit comes packaged in a decorative tin box that is perfect for gift giving or storing your notions. Make them all to compliment your entire wardrobe!
2. Prism Foxy Cowl is a simple cowl that uses Prism Stuff and Prism Plume yarns. Generously sized so you can pull it down on your shoulders, it is soft enough to bunch around your neck. I want one each in many different colors, how about you?

And – drum roll . . .
1. Our Number 1 project of 2012 is Noni’s Lipstick and Change Bag! 3 tiny bags by Nora J. Bellows. This kit is all packaged in an adorable 5" x 5" clear cube. Recently added is Noni's Lipstick and Change Sparkle Bag.  Adorned with sparkle rivets, adding even more elegance.
