Hi all! Our next meeting will be Wednesday, May 11 from 3:00 to 4:30 at the Meadows branch of the Boulder Public Library (large meeting room on your right when you enter). May is traditionally our kid vest/sweater month. Roxana has donated a fun side-to-side bulky weight sweater pattern for us to use. You can find the pattern HERE , or we will have printed copies available at the meeting. You will need 450-500 yards of bulky weight machine washable yarn and a US 9 (5.5 mm) 24 or 32 inch circular needle. If you don't have enough bulky weight on hand, you can hold two strands of sport or DK weight together, or you can work on any of our past patterns, or any kids sweater or vest pattern you like. Here are a few that are all in worsted weight: Striped vest and hat set from 2021 (photo in this post ) Mosaic vest and hat set from 2020 (uses slip stitch/mosaic colorwork) Flax, a free pattern by Tin Can Knits (seamless, top-down raglan sweater) Hope to see you there!
Bears by Roxana It's bear time! Our next meeting will be Wednesday, April 13 from 3:00 to 4:30 at the Meadows branch of the Boulder Public library. We will be working on Roxana's bear pattern, which you can find HERE . We will also have printed copies available. You will need to bring worsted weight yarn and US 5 or 6 (3.75 or 4 mm) double pointed needles. You can use neutral colors (white, brown, gray, etc.) for a more realistic bear, or mix it up with a fun color. If this pattern feels beyond your skill set, there will be help available at the meeting, or you are always welcome to make a hat - we can never have too many of those! My go-to recommendation for a free worsted-weight hat pattern is the Barley hat from Tin Can Knits. Hope to see you there!
