I’m working on a Fall sweater for my niece, Claire!
The pattern is Stripey Duffle Coat, by Kate Oates of Tot Toppers.
I’m knitting the size 2T and desperately trying to finish ASAP because I want her to be able to wear it this Fall before she outgrows it! 😂
The yarn is Berroco Vintage Chunky in colors #6101 (white) and #6145 (black); and I LOVE it! SO soft and squishy and warm! 😄
I discovered this pattern whilst browsing Ravelry late one night this past Spring when visiting my sister and her family in Maryland.
The moment I saw it, I just knew I had to knit it for Claire!
We visited their local yarn shop, Cloverhill Yarn Shop in Catonsville, MD, first thing the very next morning; and purchased the yarn on the spot! 😄 What a lovely shop it was, and such sweet, nice people working there! Visiting was truly a pleasure!
Yes, I realize that I’ve had ALL Spring AND all Summer to knit this sweater… and yes, I realize that it makes no sense whatsoever to wait until now and then be in a desperate hurry to finish… but what can I say?! 🤷🏼♀️ I’m a terrible procrastinator and I almost always plan too much to do and not enough time! 😂
Now I just have the weaving in of yarn ends, sewing on of buttons, and the blocking left to do! I’ll be sure to post a pic or two when I’m done so you can see the finished item! 😊
What’s on your needles this Fall?? Are you a procrastinator too? If not, what’s your secret?! 😉 We’d love to hear all about it!
