This free pattern was written with Rowan Alpaca Chunky in mind. But the stitch pattern can be used with almost any yarn. The bigger the yarn, the snuggli-er it will be. And the faster you can knit it! The stitch pattern is reversible, so there’s no wrong side.
While we were on a trip to harvest firewood, we came across a large herd of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep–what a treat! These sheep aren’t for wool, of course, but they are gorgeous. These two big rams were leading about 15 ewes and kids. If you look closely in the picture you can see another immature ram (the other white rear end) and the legs and lower body of a smaller kid behind the two dominant males.
Made with 5 colors of Amalfi, it’s an easy to knit Missoni-styled pattern with natural shaping that looks great on every body type. READ MORE…
Those little ones are the calfs born last spring. Don’t know if you can see the cowboys way in back, but two are on horseback and the last one was on a motorcycle!

Hands Down FavoriteWe had a sample of this vest in #3995 Persian Red at Stitches West and literally could not meet the demand! This is a real winner in a simple lace pattern, you will love it no matter which one of the more than 80 colors you choose.Super 10 has so many great qualities: it’s machine wash and dry, won’t split, won’t pill, won’t shrink, it’s soft, colorfast, and has a permanent shine.
Of course it’s fabulous for adult garments, including shawls and sweaters, but you can use Super 10 for household items (placemats, pillows, handtowels), baby items (blankets, hats) and of course kids love it!
