Holla Knits Blog Tour: Just Beachy by Emma Welford

Share Button

The Spring/Summer 2013 issue of Holla Knits was released recently and we are super excited about it here at WEBS and happy to be participating in the blog tour. Not only does it have a great selection of hip patterns that are perfect for warm weather, one of them is designed by our very own Emma Welford!


Just Beachy is knit in Valley Yarns Goshen and is a perfect layering piece for summer. Throw it on over anything. The fun colorblock detail adds a bit of contrast, but if you wanted to, you could easily knit this in just one color.

We’re giving away the yarn to knit yourself your very own Just Beachy. In the comments section, let us know what you love the most about summer. Leave your comment by Tuesday, May 7th at 9:00EDT and we’ll announce the winner. (Please make sure to leave your email address so that we can contact you if you win.)
