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!!

Stroll down a beach paradise in our "Biscayne Bay Socks" ...
Featuring HiKoo's CoBaSi Yarn ... 20% Off!

​The emerald islands and bright, aquamarine waters of Biscayne National Park features jeweled coral reefs, mangrove forests and tropical beaches. This National Park emcompasses Biscayne Bay and its offshore barrier reefs just south of Miami in the Florida Keys. Beautiful beaches provide nesting grounds for sea turtles ... and the reefs and waters harbor more than 200 species of life, including 16 endangered species!

95% of the park is covered in water, making most of it accessible only by boat. Visitors can camp, watch wildlife or snorkel their way along the underwater Maritime Heritage Trail which links dive sites, including six shipwrecks. The calm waters also offer divers a view of dolphins, manatees and sea turtles ... which are the inspiration for our Biscayne Bay Socks!

HiKoo CoBaSi

Cotton, Bamboo, and Silk give CoBaSi its name, but it’s the 21% Elastic Nylon that gives this wool-free sock yarn the kind of stretch and bounce that makes CoBaSi a great choice for socks ... for even the most die-hard fans of wool. It’s light-weight, cool, durable, and soft. Plus it stays up your leg instead of bunching around your ankles. All that at a price that’s hard to beat!

Yardage / Weight 220 yds in 50g
Gauge 26 – 32 sts over 4" on US 1– 4 [2.25 – 3.50mm]
