Sincerely Yours

Posted by on Jan 18, 2013 in Blogging | 1 comment

I met an awesome friend at TNNA last June. Her name is Brooke and she dyes AWESOME yarn, all with natural shades!

 

Yes. THAT orange. Unbelievable saturation, usually natural dyes tend to be a bit muted – which is also beautiful, but this winter set I had in my head HAD to be bright and bold!

I named this Sincerely Yours, because I loved the yarn so damn much it had to be LINKED to it, you know what I mean??

The Cowl and Hat are worked in a lovely alternating stripes pattern with a stitch pattern that creates a puffy look when paired with 2 different yarn weights – sport and fingering.

To pick your own shades of Sincere Sheep Cushy Fingering and Luminous, visit Brooke here - SincereSheep.com

And that’s NOT all!! The pattern includes tutorials for Italian Cast On &  Bind Off, tips on how to make your cowl bigger and a super detailed guide to the stitch pattern.
