February 2017 Calendar

Happy February! When the winter doldrums start getting to us (will the snow ever end?), one of our favorite things to do is play around with pretty stitch patterns. Perfect for this is our lovely Tuff Puff which really shows off those stitches! For our free downloadable February calendar we're featuring some swatches we've knit up recently. The stitch pattern in Mint is the  Diagonal Rib stitch from Up, Down, All-Around Stitch Dictionary and the one in Cream is a variation on a Broken Rib Stitch (knit 1x1 rib for 3 rows, then 1 row of just purl stitches). We hope you find inspiration all month long with our yarn "doodling"!
