Spud Says!!!

Check us out on Spud & Chloe's blog, Spud Says!!!  A giant great thanks to Susan B. Anderson of Spud & Chloe and the Itty Bitty Books for such a sweet writeup.  If you have yet to visit her blog, do so now, it's truly wonderful and full of inspiration!

Our oh so lovely friend Lindsay, just released her very first sweater pattern this week called Fairly, it's looks too cozy to resist knitting, here are the details!


This is a great sweater for beginners, with simple increases and decreases for shaping, and for more advanced knitters that want to keep their hands occupied without having to pay a lot of attention to a pattern.

It's a fairly simple construction with the sleeves worked in one long rectangular piece and seamed to create the sleeves. The body of the sweater is then picked up from the sleeves and knit from the top down.

Sizing: S (32-34"), M (36"-38"), L (40-42"), XL (44-46"), XXL (48" - 50")
Gauge: Sleeves- 16 sts and 26.5 rows = 4" in Garter Stitch on US 10 ½
            Body- 16 sts and 22 rows = 4" in Stockinette on US9

A great sweater that's fairly simple, fairly different, fairly flared, fairly fast to knit, and fairly fabulous!
