The Project

"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!!

The KAL started on February 20th and runs through mid-April.

You will need a supply of either the Lana Grossa: 365 Cotone or 365 Cashmere yarns. Both yarns are mostly cotton with a touch of polyamide for strength ... but the 365 Cashmere has a helping of soft cashmere to give it a little more luxury. Check the sizing below for the number of balls you will need ... don't forget the needles and notions!

Registration is easy, simply purchase the pattern along with your yarn!  You will be automatically registered for the KAL ... just remember to add the pattern to your Ravelry Library during the download process!

Keep all your options open ... buy an extra ball or two! ... especially if you want to make the longer sleeves! You will also need some yarn to swatch ... maybe you are just a “tight” knitter? Running out of yarn can be a real pain.  Getting more yarn, in your color, with the same dyelot can be impossible! Purchase an “insurance” ball. We're glad to accept returns on full, unused balls of yarn!
