Join our next KAL-

Love Note
Starting Friday Sept 3, Julia will start our next KAL with the beautiful sweater
This top down oversized pullover can be knit with short or long sleeves and either cropped or hip length. The loose gauge of 4 sts =1″ over stockinette stitch allows for the use of anything from the recommended fingering wt +
Lace wt mohair to a worsted weight yarn. A well written pattern.
Here is a photo of a Love Note Pillover Julia knit already. She used a Fingering wt yarn + a lace wt Mohair Silk Blend. It is super light weight.

Julia has decided to make two sweaters for this new KAL: one knit with the recommended fingering wt yarn + a mohair /silk blend. She is using Malabrigo Sock + Rowan Kid Silk Haze. For her other version she is going to work with a DK weight yarn: Joe Cole’s WTF Flockin DK worked alone. I think she is taking on 2 projects so that I will have a better chance of keeping up with her. (LOL)
I am knitting a toddler sized Love Note knit in a much heavier yarn: Cumulus.
I am using Cumulus for my Love Note Pullover. This pattern is written in sizes 0-6 months all the way up to 5XL. I will be attempting the size 2-4 for my granddaughter. My sweater will only take 2 hanks of Cumulus.
This is a fast knit folks!
We hope you will all join us. Take a look at the Ravelry Pattern Page for so many versions of this pullover.
Besides almost every fingering weight yarn we have in the shop + the several versions of Kid Mohair/ Silk blend, take a look at these yarn suggestions for the Love Note.
Cumulus is a super soft, ultra light cotton. We carry so many colors. I am using the light pink in the upper right corner. Cumulus is worsted weight gauged and long on yardage at 248 yds/100g. I will only need 2 hanks.
Check out these other yarns for the Love Note:
My number one choice for an adult Love Note is this merino + pima cotton blend. This is a super popular yarn. Right now we have every single color back in stock, including 2 brand new colors shown here.
These 2 new colors of Sea Isle Cotton are now in stock.
The soft peach and light blue are going to be wonderful additions to the

What The Flock Flocking DK
