Cottage Creation's New Pattern

Today I received the new pattern from Cottage Creations called "Rialey's Sweater" A Four-Season Pullover plus cap. It is a pullover and matching cap sized for kids, sizes 2-10 with a choice of 4 designs for around the tummy. It is knit circularly from top down adding the sleeves after the yoke so only the little seams under the arms to finish. Gauge is 9 stitches/2 inches, so goes fast, too. The neck is large to prevent that struggle kids have to get their heads through a pullover sweater with a rolled edging at the neck and bottom. Fun to knit and from the pictures in the center fold, fun and easy for a child to knit. Her patterns all have easy to follow directions and illustrations-illustrated by her daughter who is a watercolor artist in Door County. Reading her patterns gives a little insight into the life of the creator, so you feel you know her. I do-I test knit her patterns, that's why I already have one knit. Some of patterns from Cottage Creations are The Wonderful Wallaby, Babies and Bears, Sven Scandinavian, and Rambling Rows. If your LYS doesn't carry Cottage Creations, you can write "Cottage Creations, At the Farm on Deer Creek, Carpenter, Iowa, 50426-0070. Send a LSASE for a free brochure.
