The Bloomin' Spindle

My First Stranded Colorwork Sweater!

Top down sweaters are the BEST! You can try them on as you go, they start small (but not too small!) so you get pretty far, pretty quickly. And, they often have a beautiful colorwork yoke that is a pleasure to watch as it blossoms and blooms. Novice at colorwork? Never made a sweater? Join us!
