Hand-Knit Danbury Hooded Sweater Jacket

You Asked for It!

Many readers last week wrote to tell us that they loved the Loom-Knit Danbury Hooded Sweater Jacket but wanted to craft a version using hand-knitting. This week, we feature, the hand knit version in sizes S/M, L and 1X/2X.

We've also had many requests for a single-color version of our designer pattern for the cable ready bag and we're happy to make that available this week for $2.50 as a downloadable or black and white pattern only.

Crochet Preemie Hat Grandma's College Ice Breaker

Margaret writes: "I have used Lion Brand yarns for years. Today, my granddaughter went off to college. So, I thought I would send her a surprise package of all sorts of things, including Grandma Margaret's home-made chocolate chip cookies!

"Tonight, I printed out 10 copies of your Preemie Cap pattern. I put them in sheet protectors and am enclosing those with a crochet hook in each. I will also include a ball of your cotton yarn with each. Sanya will have an instant ice breaker with the cookies and her charity crochet project!

"Thank you very much for all of the free patterns for projects. I have enjoyed them very much!"
