If you're looking for a tweedy dk-weight blend for your next project, look no further! Queensland's Drover is a merino/silk/nylon blend that is soft enough for next-to-skin garments yet sturdy enough to make those cables and pattern work pop. And we've got 12 gorgeous tweedy shades for you to choose your perfect palette.
We're casting on Heidi Kirrmaier's Early Bloomer for an all-season pullover with easy patterning and short sleeves (the pattern includes directions for long sleeves too!). You'll need size 2.5 and 4 needles. The pattern and yardage requirements for long and short-sleeved versions is available on Ravelry.com.
We're starting our holiday knitting with this Yuna hat, mitten and scarf set by Jody Long. The cable pattern is repeated on all 3 projects and moves along quickly. The hat and mittens are knit in the round on size 3 & 6 needles, and the scarf is knit flat on size 6 needles. You'll need 3 skeins for the scarf and 1 skein each for the hat and mittens. The pattern is available on Ravelry.com.
