“Bobbie” long sleeve garment suited for both boys and girls.
Written for a DK base Bobbie makes a modern, cosy addition to any winter wardrobe. Bobbie is suited to people with basic intermediate skills and is Not suited to total beginners.

What do I get?
You will receive the full pattern with the release of the final update. When purchasing before the start date of August 5th you will not receive a pattern, the download is just a place holder
Cast on on August 5th when the first clues are delivered, in the meantime have fun picking out your yarn!
When will I get the next clue?
July 25th - yardage details and cover page will be sent out
August 5th - clue one
August 12th - clue two
August 19th - clue three
August 26th - clue four
September 2nd - clue five (final clue)
You’ll receive a PM in your Ravelry inbox and an email when the update is ready to download (you may wish to turn on Ravelry messages if you have them turned off because they aren’t subject to spam filters the way email is). Be aware that when I initiate an update it enters a queue and can take several hours before they all arrive. Please be patient when you see that the first people have received theirs, yours is on the way!
What yarn should I use?
There are SO many options. I feel that this design is suited to both semi solid and variegated. A trim is not written in but could easily be added!
You WILL need more yarn than usual for a typical garment, why will be made clear as you get to each section.
