“Mila was created to complement any tank top, swim suit, and all abbreviated warm weather clothing. Whether you’re hitting the beach, strolling the boardwalk, or out grabbing a bite, this tank will ensure you’re always prepared to look your best while still keeping you cool.”
“This is a unisex sock pattern written in needle neutral terms so that it can be worked on dpns or circular needles.
These colorful socks are worked from the toe up and have an afterthought heel. Both the toe and heel are star shaped.
The color pattern is mosaic, so only one color of yarn is worked at a time and much of the design is made by slipping stitches from the left to right needle.
For best results, these socks are made with 2 skeins of yarn in highly contrasting colorways. When using the recommended Schoppel Zauberball Crazy, 2 skeins is enough to make 2 pairs of M or L socks and 3 pairs of XS or S socks.”
“My April 2018 KAL begins April 5th with a beautiful design knit with Concentric by HiKoo®. Named after the concentric circles that this cake of yarn so closely resembles, these color gradients were carefully designed by the Skacel color specialists! Concentric is made from four non-plied strands, which create the distinctive color change.
In Transient, each color change will bring a different stitch pattern in this easy to wear shawl. You will find yourself racing to the next color change to find out what comes next!”
“Clementine is a fun,quick to knit, classic pinafore baby dress. Stripes, and a fun pocket insert not only make the garment so cute, they also add interest during knitting. Its seamless construction means you knit and you are done! We chose to knit Clementine in Hikoo’s wonderful CoBaSi fingering yarn. The yarn is a blend of cotton, bamboo and stretchy nylon. This yarn makes the dress light, perfect for summer wear, and just a little stretchy for baby’s comfort. These little dresses are like candy. You cannot stop at just one!
