Some Ravelry Inspirations

A lovely vest to knit up quickly in a worsted weight yarn such as Worsted Merino Superwash.
If you choose the Soundtrack Vest you can make a matching cowl.
Knit in Worsted Merino Superwash- one hank each color needed.
So many color combos to choose from.
We all LOVE TincanKnits patterns- Why? Because they are well written patterns that work! Here we have a worsted weight Henley written for sizes NB to 6XL. May we suggest Encore Worsted or Comfort Worsted for a fully washable sweater.
This FREE pattern calls for using a double strand of a DK. We suggest using a single strand of Berroco Sesame or Homestead Tweed for some great colors without an overly heavy fabric.

Love Note Continues

Julia continues leading us in our latest KAL with the delicate sweater called
Love Note.
To join our KAL- join our Facebook Group page.
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.
Julia is knitting up 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 working with a DK weight yarn: Joe Cole’s WTF Flockin’ DK worked alone.
I knit a toddler sized Love Note knit in a much heavier yarn: Cumulus.
My Love Note, using Cumulus.
It’s Finished!
I made size 1-2 for my granddaughter. I like how it looks.
This was an easy quick knit.
