We recently got the Winter 2012 issue of KnitSimple in at the store. It is full of great patterns for sweater, accessories, and other projects that will keep you toasty all season long. Check out the preview on their site here.

We’re very excited about the Bubble Vest because it is designed in our Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky. This vest is full of texture and the wool/alpaca blend of Berkshire Bulky will keep you warm. It takes 7-12 balls depending on the size you are knitting.

This week’s free pattern is a great layer for summer, early fall, and spring. The Spring Leaves Vest is knit in Universal Yarn Cotton Supreme. This machine washable yarn is super soft. The cotton yarn adds drape to the fabric and showcases the leaf pattern nicely.

The sizing on this pattern ranges from 32″ to 56″ to fit a variety of sizes. It would look fantastic in a bright color, or great in something more neutral. For a different spin, you could try Universal Yarn Cotton Supreme Batik!
