Both crochet and knit!
It seems that I kind of like making little girlie dresses. I never really got this about myself, but this evidence here and here and now this month’s knit pattern of the month suggests that it just might be the case.
Rainbow Ruche is a colorful, fun dress to knit for your wee girlie. It’s sized from 1 year up to 10 years, so hopefully I’ve covered all the bases this time! All you need is 1 skein of our new hand-dyed yarn Sockish (or Pagoda will work well too) and 3 coordinating colors of Debbie Bliss Rialto 4-ply…which is delightful to knit with on all counts. It’s seamless too and a picot cast on means that finishing work is minimal! This pattern will be free through the month of February with purchase of suggested yarn.
Annnd, in honor of Cast-on Mania, I’ve also got a crochet pattern of the month for you this month! I imagined that the people doing cast on mania might need a few project bags as the month progresses! So here’s a bag you could cast on one day, and carry a project in the next!
Bag of Hexes is a quick little hexagon tote that makes a great project bag! It can be made with any gauge yarn and its appropriate hook size. A worsted weight yarn and G hook gives you a bag that is about 9” diameter and 7” tall. Since this pattern can be made with almost anything, it will be free through February with the purchase of 3 different colors of any yarn. Sound fair? 🙂 It’s a quick one…both of these bags came to life in one day!
