I'm SO excited to announce an event I've been planning for spring - our very first Make-a-Long! Find all the details below on what we're making, some insane prizes we're offering, and more - I hope you'll join us!
We're focusing on two patterns from our Spring Lookbook this season, one knit and one crochet. All crafts are welcome and encouraged around here!
The Provence Sweater is a knit piece worked top down with a yoke style neckline, some short rows, i-cord edging, bracelet length sleeves, and a barely cropped mid-length body. The fit is really flattering on lots of different body types and it's a dream to knit with our suri lace yarn held double!
My original sample is made in the Provence colorway from our Spring Tonals but the kit will be available in all ten spring colorway options! I plan to knit another during the MAL in Toile - one of my all time favorite blues!
The Mariniere Sweater is a crochet pattern inspired by the classic French striped top. Worked in flat panels and seamed, this pattern is made in our brand new base yarn, Bamboo Sock! It's sooo soft and pretty, it creates such a lovely garment.
Our sample is worked up in Au Lait with an accent color of Normandy but we'll be offering every color option for the Mariniere kit too! Choose any accent color and crochet along with us.
I've got a rapid fire list of details below for those of you who like to skim (I get it):
