Pattern Preview Central & Giveaway Fun!

December 15, 2009

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

Well, today is the day! I have some fun stuff in store for all of you so be sure to read all the way to the end! The new patterns are out for preview and will be available for purchase from your local yarn shops and online in January 2010! Here is a quick look and link session for you.

Have you ever seen two cuter pixies than these? Rachel Russ is our resident expert on fair isle and she designed this playful pattern for Spud & Chloë. The photo above is of our new Pixie Poncho pattern knitted up in Spud & Chloë Sweater.

Here is the link for more information on the Pixie Poncho pattern.

The Three Brrr Bears is my latest toy pattern for Spud & Chloë. The cool (get it?) thing about this pattern is that the size difference in the three bears is due to yarn changes. The largest bear is knit in Outer, the medium bear is knit in Sweater and the small bear is knit in Fine. With a few minor length modifications to get proportions right, it is the exact same pattern for all three sizes. It is way cool and way fun to knit these playful, squishy, lovable polar bears!

Here is the link for more information on the Three Brrr Bears pattern.

I love the Lil’ Man Vest by Alana Dakos. What a treat this one is knit up in Spud & Chloë Outer. You’ll have this one whipped up in a matter of hours. Simple and wearable and sweet all rolled into one fast knit!

These are about the best Sassy Stockings ever! The stockings are a joint effort by Rachel Russ and Colleen Powley. The stockings are knit up in Spud & Chloë Fine. I am thinking about all of the color combinations you could come up. What fun!

Here is the link for more information on the Sassy Stockings pattern.

Who doesn’t love a Tea Party Cardi? This sweet and breezy cardigan works up in a flash in a broken rib pattern and knit in Spud & Chloë Sweater. Bobbi Intveld designed this pattern just for you! What a versatile little knit, love the 3/4 length sleeves on this one.

Here is the link for more information on the Tea Party Cardi.

If you want to add some bright and sunny fun to your wardrobe this one is for you! I love the fun spirit behind Kim Hamlins’ Tiptoe Cardigan. The flowers are fabric applique and the cardigan is knit up in Spud & Chloë Sweater.

Okay, and last but not least, I have some news on this adorable canvas Spud & Chloë pencil bag. After I talked about this bag on the blog I had lots and lots of requests to purchase this pencil bag featuring our friends, Spud and Miss Chloë! I am happy to announce that the bag will be available for purchase in January 2010 and will be retail priced at under $10! If you are interested in purchasing a Spud & Chloë pencil bag please request one at your local yarn shops! Shops carrying Spud & Chloë can easily order these bags to have in their shop as well.

Now for some added fun for all of you!!! We are hosting a kick off giveaway! I have been given the go-ahead to offer a Spud & Chloë pencil bag and your choice of one of the six brand new preview Spud & Chloë patterns that I have shared today. There will be two lucky winners!
