What's On Our Needles

Pattern: Baby Squared Up Jacket by  Yarns

Yarn: Uneek Fingering by Urth Yarns


"Like crocheted origami, this hexagon-based cardigan starts under the arm and wraps around the body, two identical pieces joined in back. The sleeves extend from one of the six sides and the front and hem are lengthened, all worked in the same classic stitch."

Linda is loving this cute little sweater and it only takes ONE skein of yarn!

Pattern: Emma's Dried Flowers by Dana Fehrenbach 

Yarn: Practically Perfect Kit by Emma's Yarns


"Knitting the timeless fan and feather pattern with breaks of garter ridges brings lots of anticipation with how the next mini will look as you knit. It’s hard to put down!"
