Join Michelle Hunter's "Adorable Ewe Baby Sweater" Knit-Along ...
Featuring HiKoo's Simpliworsted Yarn ... 20% Off!
It's not too late! ... Michelle (a.k.a. Knit-Purl-Hunter) has just started her next mystery KAL ... knit a baby sweater, the Adorable Ewe!
This sure-to-be cute sweater is knit in the soft Simpliworsted yarn and is brimming with essential sweater knitting skills. When you're done, you will have the perfect gift for your favorite baby or grandbaby! As always, we're delighted to help you find all the information you'll need to join the knit along and knit the project!
"Adorable Ewe" Sweater
Michelle's knit alongs (KALs) are mystery knit alongs. So there are no preliminary photos ... only a general of descriptions of the finished project. But she has told us that the baby sweater has a sheep-theme and will be way too cute to miss! ... checkout the sheep buttons!
The sweater is sized to fit a 6 month old baby and is appropriate for a boy or girl. Pick a boy or girl color ... or a gender neutral color if you are still waiting for the gender reveal!
All of the techniques Michelle uses will be supported by her video tutorials and she answers questions daily on her website and Ravelry group. Michelle's instructions, tutorials and videos have made her KALs extremely popular ... think of her KAL as an online class, worth far more than the price of admission — which is, of course, Free!!
After May 15 the pattern will no longer be free on KnitPurlHunter.com, but will be available for $6 as a Ravlery ePattern.
