L & B Yarn Co. and Classic Elite Yarns is hosting a free private yarn tasting here at the shop tomorrow Friday, April 28th from 10:00am-12:00pm and there are still 2 spots available! You might be wondering just what a yarn tasting is. It’s a crafting party where crocheters and knitters get together to try out new yarns. Each participant will receive a gift and 5 Classic Elite mini skeins to try out during this private event! Participants can either knit, crochet, or create their own one of a kind weaving as shown in the photograph with the 5 mini skeins provided.

Emmaline

Emmaline

Sprout by Classic Elite Yarn is my favorite bulky cotton of all time!  It is 100% organic, making it environmentally friendly and it’s super soft.  Emmaline by Jennifer Wood is the perfect summer sweater with it’s cap sleeves and gathers giving it a Jane Austen feel.  The pattern is worked from the top down so there is no seaming involved.  You can also try on the sweater as you go to make sure you get the perfect fit.

The raglan increases are incorporated with the yarn over eyelets running across the front of the neckline and sleeves.  Increases are worked on the top section for the bust and the sweater is separated by a purl section to create an empire waist.

The sweater is worked in the round and is mostly knit in stockinette stitch making it a quick project!  Check out the pattern by clicking here.
