Knitwear designs from the shores of Lake Minnetonka. Cynthia Cushing, the designer and creator of Lakeside Yarn, proudly owned a brick-and-mortar shop by that name in Excelsior, Minnesota, from 2010 until 2019. You can still find her designs and the yarn kits to make them at that same location and at various events around the country, including Vogue Knitting LIVE. Most kits contain yarns that have been custom dyed or milled from smaller producers in the U.S. and abroad. We feature versatile accessories in distinct styles with close attention to detail—you will enjoy both the knitting and the wearing.
