We’re showing off this cute pullover as a shop sample recently because we’re just so in love with it! The pattern, Dory Pullover, is an instant classic that comes to us from Swans Island Company.
We used three skeins of the sport-weight self-striping Ambiente from Schoppel-Wolle (current color selection pictured here) and two skeins of a contrasting color (stash buster alert!) to make the 2 year old size. This is a nice superwash wool, so this pullover is perfect for even the most active kid.
We’re always so excited when the right yarn brings a simple pattern to life, aren’t you?
Karen knit this cute dress for Gigi from the Swans Island pattern, Schooner Dress. She made the sleeves a bit longer instead of adding pockets, which meant she only needed one skein of each color — and had leftovers (pictured below).
The pattern has instructions ranging between ages 2–10. The gauge calls for sport weight, which means you could use cotton if you’re concerned about sensitive skin (though it’s worth noting that the Swans Island organic yarn didn’t irritate Gigi’s eczema).
How about some leg warmers for the baby?
They match her new hat!
White Pines Hat sizes 0 to 24 months in the new sport weight ultra luxurious Swans Island merino.
Karen recently shared this video of her grandson’s reaction to his new blanket. Kids are too funny!
Now that my grandson is getting a new sibling, he has graduated out of the crib into a bed. He is also turning three at the end of the month, so part of his birthday present will be a new blanket out of Swan’s Island luxurious organic merino yarn. It’s a pricey project, but definitely an heirloom. It is on display until March 25th.
