Bobbin's Nest Knit Along is Here!!

It's a Bobbin's Nest Knit Along, and you are all invited!

Liesl Sweater

We are going to be knitting the beautiful Liesl sweater by Ysolda Teague
This is a great pattern -- it's top-down, which means it's easier to fit, and the lace pattern is really simple. There are several length options for the sweater and the sleeves, so you can make exactly the version you want! And Charlotte even skipped the buttonholes on the version shown here because there is plenty of space in the lace pattern to put your button through.
Amy, our staffer who has never knit a sweater, has decided that this is going to be her first sweater project -- you could make it your first sweater project too!

We have everything you need for this Knit Along at the shop!
We have the pattern in stock, and we have some really great yarn choices for you as well. The pattern calls for an aran weight yarn, but Charlotte made this one in Berroco Vintage DK and it's a dream!
We've just gotten in a HUGE shipment of Berrooco yarns, so choose from the Berroco Vintage DK, worsted, or chunky, or even the Berroco Comfort. All are extremely affordable options that will give you an easy to care for sweater when you are done knitting.
We also have lots of other beautiful yarns in the shop that would be great for this pattern, so come by and let us help you pick out your yarn!
