Whitney Pattern and Sweety Yarn


Today I am pleased to introduce you to a new pattern, and a stunning new yarn!

Whitney is a gorgeous baby beanie worked in an easy block stitch/basket stitch. The pattern includes four sizes covering 0 to 12 months. This style will be perfect for both baby girls and boys.
Read all about it here:

It is knitted in super soft 4ply Sweety yarn. I wish you could feel this yarn through your screen as it needs to be felt to be believed! In my 40+ years of knitting I have never felt an acrylic yarn that is this unbelievably soft. It is ideal for baby knits but kids and adults will also love to feel this gorgeous delicate yarn against their skin.
