What does a 1yr old need?

A Hedgehog, of course.

Or, two.

Being the in the midst of packing, I had packed the pattern for this hedgehog, but found this guy easily enough to quickly whip together these two friends for my niece’s first birthday.

Because, really, what else could a 1 yr old possibly want?

Raveled

Dusty Leaf

Just a quick one to show you Leaf Stole knitted in a different colour. I’m trying to work out which I like most, the lighter shade or the darker.

I’m very persuaded by the grey, and feel like the stitch pattern is even more accentuated.

Thanks, Jody, for the test knit!

On Monday I will have available on etsy my Organic Naturally Dyed yarn that is perfectly suited to this pattern. Now I am no longer selling at the local farmers market I will be utilising the power of the internet to continue to make organically produced, naturally dyed yarn accessible to the conscious knitter.

Pattern Release : Leaf Stole

This stole is knit from a charted pattern that creates a full fabric with tons of texture and squish-ability. The 2 ply yarn from Bartlett Yarns offers a very ‘real’ fabric, that will wear well and continue to keep you warm for years.

At almost 6 ft long, this scarf can be wrapped a hundred times about your neck, hug your shoulders, or cover up those chilly knees whilst you knit. The ease of this pattern allows a lot of room for yarn substituting, and will work great with any type of worsted weight yarn.

Needles : US 8 [5mm] straight or circular, or needle to obtain gauge.
