ALLL the pretty yarn!

Know a baby due to arrive this fall?! Seems like there’s been a bit of a baby boom around me, so the shower invitations and planning emails are circling. If you’re planning to knit a little something for this precious package, why not knit a little Sweetling Sweater? Go for it… pick up the pattern on Ravelry, grab some yarn and dive in! AND don’t forget! it’s 50% off until tomorrow night. Enter sweet1week when checking out on Ravelry.

Wait… what yarn? Isn’t that always the question? Sometimes it really is hard to match a pattern with the right yarn, or vise versa. So I decided to do a bit of leg work for you! I’ve poked around and put together a list of yarns that I personally would use to make this sweater for one of my next showers. Some I’ve used in the past, others I’m just drooling over. But ALL of these would make a beautiful sweater.

Happy Shopping!

Economical Ideas

Knit Picks Stroll – $19 for 12 month size
(This is calculated off of 4 skeins, which only gives you 924 yds. instead of the recommended 940 yds. in the pattern. However I did put a small buffer in the yardage requirements, so you should be fine. Just watch that gauge!!!)

Knit Picks Swish Worsted – $24 for 12 month size

Knit Picks Stroll Tonal – $24 for 12 month size
(Same disclaimer as the regular stroll. This is calculated off of 2 skiens of yarn which only gives you 924 yds. You’ll be fine if you watch your gauge!)
