As it's Easter this weekend we thought we'd do a little Easter fun this week!
A little Yolks knit-a-long!
Last year, we launched a fun little free pattern on Ravelry for yoked sweaters for eggs called Yokes! (Surely a pun is one of the best reasons to write a pattern?)
We had so much fun seeing everyone's little Yolk sweaters for their Easter eggs last year and we'd love to see more of them, so if you fancy making one, we'd love to see your efforts!
There are of course prizes!
Our three favourite Yolks sweaters (the more inventive the better) will win a pattern of their choice from the Fyberspates Ravelry store! All you have to do is knit a little Yolk sweater from the pattern in any yarn (it doesn't have to be Fyberspates, any leftover 4ply yarns will do) and share it with us either on Ravelry in our Yolks knit-along Eggstravaganza thread (more puns, sorry), or Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #fyberspatesyolks and bring a little knitted fun to your Easter preparations!
We will pick our two favourites on the Thursday 7th April and announce the winners on the blog the following day.
They're super quick to make and only take a very small amount of 4ply weight yarn, such as Vivacious 4ply. We knitted the ones pictured above in Sea Green and Sunshine, Lavender Haze and Mixed Magentas and Sunshine with Sea Green stripes for a fresh springy look, but you could add more stripes or a little fairisle, or a contrasting yoke and sleeves.........
or make a hoodie (we knitted ours in Mixed Magentas):
or a cardigan version (we knitted ours in Copper Tones with the French Knot buttons in Mixed Magentas):
There are instructions for both of these options in the pattern, so why not use them as a starting point for more ideas? Put bunny ears on the hoodie or embroider tiny spring flowers on the cardigan.
What are you waiting for? Those eggs are getting cold!
Everyone at Fyberspates, Jeni, Andy, Lottie and Chris would like to wish you a very Happy Easter!
