The Piggly Wiggly Sock pattern is now available for purchase! Knitted with one skein of sock yarn from Oink Pigments, these are just what you've been looking for to show off that hand-dyed fiber. The unique swoop heel will be a fun new technique to learn for even the most experienced sock knitter.
The stranded pattern is created by combining ten-stitch-square charts. In class we will assemble paper cubes and “roll the dice” to generate a random pattern, but you can also choose pattern squares by rolling dice or by arranging the square charts to invent your own pattern. Ready-to-knit charts are included in the pattern as well.
The Brooklyn Tweed Kids collection features cute and sophisticated patterns sized for children from ages 2 to 10, and the trunk show is available to view here in the shop all week. The collection includes hats, sweaters, mittens and even an adorable snuggly bear named Humphrey. Bring in your little ones to try things on, but hurry, the garments are only here until October 26th.
