THERE’S A MYSTERY AFOOT

Designer Heather Anderson is celebrating her 5th knitting anniversary with a free Mystery Knit Along (MKAL) that kicks off on March 1st. The project, which has been teased as fingering weight cowl, will be delivered in 4 parts, landing in inboxes every Friday at 9 am through March 29th. Chatter is already happening in the Ravelry KAL group where anxious knitters are discussing colorways, spoilers, and sharing pictures of their dogs. It is called the Grateful Cowl, after all.

CAST ON: Nilla by Sanne Bjerregaard

Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early Spring, which has us rethinking our project queue. While you plan out your Spring knit must-makes, there’s one knit that is a no-brainer. The Nilla dress is a free pattern that uses fingering weight yarn to create a lightweight dress that any mom and babe will love. Knit from the top down this dress features bold stripes and playful bobbles that simply beg for a trio of fun colors.
