As the New Year begins, I’ve been thinking a lot about making vs. buying.
I’d always rather make what I’m wearing than buy it, so I hit the search button and started making a list of pretty things I’d like to be wearing this year. Turns out, it’s a BIG list! To narrow it down, I went to my closet, to figure out what pieces I most need and settled on a sweater or two, and a few scarves, my favorite accessory! Then I went to our pattern search, to find similar pieces to what I found in the online shops. I found our Cuff-to-Cuff Sweater. I’m planning on making it with Treasure yarn, in the Mosaic color way, I love blues & greens! The sleeves will also end up being longer, perfect for being cozy on the weekends!

I pulled the pattern out and started to figure out what I needed to change to make the pattern work with Treasure. Continue reading “Prairie Wrap Reworked!”
