Introducing Greyson

Well there's nothing like a new pattern release to spark a bit of blog writing!

Greyson” - son of the grey-haired man. This pattern has been affectionately written and named for the men in my family, my distinguished looking silver haired husband and our delicious sons.



I'm actually really proud of this pattern - written in 3 yarn weights with 14 sizes (for each yarn) from NB (15") to 10-12 years (28"), I think this is a pattern people might like to knit more than once. I've knitted 6 of them already! And one of my testers Rachel has knitted 3 already too!

Greyson is a classic raglan style V-neck sweater – all ready for you to personalise as you wish!Simple to knit, with a straight forward and easy-to-follow pattern, it is knitted top down and seamlessly.

And I've got a quick knit a long for it running till the end of August too - come and pop over here and join in!


This pattern is also accompanied by a fabulous Watermellish PDF for argyle charts for duplicate stitch, which are worked if you wish after your sweater is knitted. These are included for both the vertical and horizontal argyle with both a unisex diamond shape as well as an alternative heart chart. They are very straight forward - an excellent introductory duplicate stitch project if you’ve never attempted it before!

You can buy a copy by clicking this buy now button - it is selling for $6USD.


Hmmm - and how about a little pattern giveaway whilst I'm at it? Leave a comment here with your Ravelry name and I'll randomly pick a commenter tonight to gift a copy of the pattern to. If you've already purchased it then I'll refund you the pattern price instead!

Happy Knitting!

xx
