"Adorable Ewe" Sweater
by Michelle Hunter
Pattern FREE posted Progressively during the event
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!!
