Chickadee Anyone?

Chickadee from Little Red in the City

.
Chickadee is one of our 12 in 12 sweaters this year…if you don’t know the history of 12 in 12 read to the bottom of that blog link for details.
.
The amazing Ysolda Teague is the designer of the pattern and the author of the terrific book  Little Red in the City.  There are great patterns in this book, but the best part about it are the instructions for sizing sweaters to fit?  WHAT?  I can actually control how the sweater fits?  Yup.
.
Anyway, Jennifer and Heather are working on the sweater as we speak and they are going to offer a FREE workshop on Monday, October 29th from 6-9pm.  If you are interested in starting this sweater, come on in.  They’ll help you understand what your measurements are and how you can apply them to the pattern to make a perfect fit!  They’ll also help you gauge swatch with sample yarn we have here at the shop.  This will give you an opportunity to try different yarns before you invest in the sweater quantity purchase.
.
Here is how their sweaters are coming along!  They both chose to use only 2 colors.  Heather is knitting hers out of Berroco Vintage DK and Jennifer is using Cascade 220 SW worsted!

Remember, 12 in 12 rules apply…not sure about this program?  Here are basics!
1.  you get 20% off the materials to make this sweater and you have to purchase materials from us.
2.  you don’t have to knit this sweater in a month, but if you want to try to knit it in November you’ll get a $20 gift card if you can finish!
3.  you don’t have to have knit any other 12 in 12 sweaters, this can be your first of the year.
