Pepere

Pepere

My dad turned 70 in a time when were not able to properly celebrate, so I thought he should at least get a special new hat as one of his presents. My dad is a woods-loving, wood-chopping kind of guy, so my daughters thought Pepe might like some trees on his hat!

You can find the pattern for Pepere on Ravelry right now!

Another new pattern is coming this week! Stay tuned!

New Pattern: Happy Trails Poncho for Kids

New Pattern: Happy Trails Poncho for Kids

My youngest daughter recently discovered this poncho in a drawer of old handknits. She immediately wanted to wear it and out of curiosity, I looked back in Ravelry to see when I had knit it. It was 4 years ago, and my post noted that the pattern would be available in January 2015. My older daughter never wanted to wear it, so I guess my lack of photos kept me from releasing it. Better late than never, I guess!

This is a super fast knit, with super bulky Spud and Chloe Outer, knit at 2.5 sts/inch! This yarn is a super cozy blend of cotton and wool. It does fuzz up a little, but it’s machine washable, so kid-friendly, for sure!

This pattern is sized for kids sizes 2-14. It up on Ravelry now, and you can use the code NEW for 50% off until Christmas.

Happy knitting!
