I have been absolutely BUSTING to show you this new design, and I'm super excited that its finally ready!!
Shelley Bay was knit all the way back at the beginning of December (not that long ago I guess) when my family and I went on our holiday to the South Island of New Zealand. Picton to be precise. Shelley Bay is a gorgeous area down there and I just had to name this pattern for the area. Especially since I knit most of it while on holiday there.
The fronts are textured using a simple cable pattern, which is reflected on each side. The cable is both charted and written, and I have included instructions for using a cable needle, and cabling without the needle.
There is also a wee bit of detail on the sleeve to keep things interesting!
Sized from NB - 10 years, you can read all about it here .
For the next week, Shelley Bay is going to be lovingly discounted to just $4 US, it will revert to $5.50 US at midnight on the 12th of February.
It has been test knit and tech edited AND I am also hosting a KAL over here.
Knit in the Scrummy Dream in Color Calm base (in Shy), I have some more for prizes - thanks so much to Dream in Color. If you haven't tried this yarn yet, I suggest you do :) Its soft, and knitting it feels so smooooth, but it doesn't appear to have the pilly nature of other soft twisted yarns.
I will leave you with a few more photos, from some of my wonderful test knitters, aren't they gorgeous!
