Since January, Classic Elite has been sending us two brand new colors of Liberty and free patterns to go with them. Every month, I think they’ve finally created my favorite, until the next month when I like the new ones even better. We just received our last shipment and well, don’t you think this color is fabulous?
And I love the pattern. When I make mine, though, I will use two different skeins and alternate every two rows, so I end up with skinny stripes. I tend to shy away from wide horizontal stripes, unless they are broken up as in the cardigan below.
This cardigan shows off the other color of June. Notice how they’ve played up the direction of the stripes for a flattering look. Also, I think out of all the Liberty colors this is the best one for a boy baby sweater.
If you haven’t worked with Liberty yet, you are in for a treat. It knits up at 5 – 6 stitches per inch. It’s soft and machine washable. And there are so many fun colors to play with.
