All patterns are exclusive to the club until June 2014.
Every two months, starting in January 2014, you will get a new pattern emailed to you and sent to your ravelry library. There will be three patterns in total, with the final pattern being delivered in May, 2014.
Each pattern is designed especially for the exclusive colourway produced by the Irish hand dyer for that month, so each pattern is designed to use less than 100g of a fingering weight yarn.
In each month’s pattern I will make sure to include plenty of photos so you can see the project in detail and any photo tutorials necessary to help you along with new techniques.
Thank you for joining me, Carol Feller and This Is Knit on this new journey and I hope you enjoy knitting the patterns as much as I enjoyed producing them!
