Free Pattern Thursday

Hi Everyone,

This week’s free pattern is by Amy Herzog and is the February Fitted Pullover.

It is based off of the February Lady Sweater that uses the gull lace stitch pattern in Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Baby Sweater on Two Needles (February) from The Knitter’s Almanac.

It is knit in Dream in Color Classy, which is a beautiful hand-dyed yarn yarn that doesn’t pool the way other hand dyed yarns do. I knit the February Lady Sweater in this yarn, but after trying on the February Fitted Pullover in Amy’s Fit to Flatter class that she had here at WEBS I’m seriously considering re-purposing the yarn into the pullover version!

Happy Knitting,

Mary

Dream in Color has a certain fascination in the knitting world. The colors pop, the bases make knitters swoon. I’ve many times heard customers exclaim, “this is perfect” when they squish a skein. How do we add to that excitement?

Dream in Color has outdone themselves with their Dream Club, an exclusive fiber club available at select retail stores. What’s better? We’re giving it to you for free! We will be offering several giveaways with never before seen bases and colorways from Dream in Color.

September brings us a lovely purple mixture with pops of green and brown in a worsted weight base of 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere and 10% nylon. Basically, a Smooshy With Cashmere worsted. How could that be wrong?

To sweeten the pot we will be giving away ten one-skein kits with a cute fingerless mitts pattern from Dream in Color. Ten! So comment below on why you love Dream in Color by Sunday, September 25th and be sure to check back next week to see if you are one of the lucky winners!

Good luck!
