What to Make: The Daily sweater by Andrea Mowry

Welcome to our weekly feature, What to Make Wednesday! The yarns here at Ewe Ewe are so versatile and I love to share ideas about what you can knit with them.

Ewe Ewe designer and my favorite person, Meaghan Schmaltz just finished knitting her own The Daily sweater by Andrea Mowry using Baa Baa Bulky Merino yarn. Isn’t it awesome?!

I think it looks great.

Andrea’s sweater has a pretty, muted feel but you know how I love saturated colors. Here’s a peek at the lovely original modeled by the designer herself.

Meaghan is Andrea’s tech editor (I know, what a job, right?!) and when she saw The Daily slide across her desk she thought it was so great that she leapt at the chance to test knit the new design!

I have to say, I agree with Meaghan! I think this sweater looks incredibly wonderful to wear.

Meaghan choose Ewe Ewe Baa Baa Bulky as her yarn for this project and she got gauge perfectly on a Size 10 needle. She used the colors Black Licorice and Wheat to make a great basic for her closet.

We have 17 colors in Baa Baa Bulky now which means there are so many options to make this amazing sweater! I’ve put together a few ideas here. Take a look!

I love that Saffron and Brushed Silver combo to wear with jeans.

What if we choose some color with color? You could do our rich Teal with Soft Sage for a green tone. Then I was thinking of Cotton Candy and Orange Peel together because I did it in this baby sweater and I kinda want to wear it myself!

You could add some Indigo to your Wheat. Or maybe you’re thinking a bit of a spring fling is in order — wouldn’t Aquamarine and Sky Blue be so cheery? Yes!

Color mixing is so fun and here at Ewe Ewe we plan all the colors to work together so go ahead and give it a try for yourself. If you have a question about which colors you might like you can always email me and we can figure it out!

Look at all the texture on this cowl!

Split the Distance is a knitting pattern that creates big arrows with just a change in knits or purls.

Such a cool effect.

I have been holding my breath and waiting to show you these socks! Ewe Heart Socks was the first pattern I thought of when I dreamed up my new Fluffy Fingering merino yarn.

I called my friend Meaghan at The Unapologetic Knitter and said, “Will you design me socks with HEARTS all over them?” 💗 She did!

Look at all those adorable eyelet hearts! I love them so much because they match the Ewe Ewe Yarns logo and they keep the socks interesting as you knit them.

We made these socks in Fluffy Fingering and I love how the twist of this yarn really pops the stitch definition on the heart design.

You can choose any color to knit your hearts. We made our set in Berry but Red Velvet, Aquamarine or Iris Blossom would all look fabulous, too!

Simple and sweet, the Extranilla Socks by The Unapologetic Knitter are perfect for TV knitting! Extranilla are the type of socks you can keep in your bag and work on them when you just want to knit without having to worry about a pattern. They’re great for a beginner or a more experienced knitter!

Meaghan designed My Favorite Vanilla Socks that use one color of yarn but Extranilla adds that extra pop of color at the cuff, heel and toe to really bring them to life. My kinda socks! I love a good pop of color.

What's the MDK March Mayhem Bracket?

MDK March Mayhem 2018

MDK March Mayhem 2018

Think of the MDK March Mayhem like the famous NCAA basketball tournament. The best teams in the country compete against each other to see who is the best. The MDK March Mayhem does that for knitting patterns!

The Doodle Stitch Beanie is in the Mini Skeins category because the focus is small, fun projects that highlight a playful design (an adorable squiggle stitch in this case!) with a small amount of yarn (1 ball of 2 colors of Ewe So Sporty merino!).

Head over to the MDK March Mayhem page to vote for the Doodle Stitch and whichever other designs you love. I love this kind of fun competition! Vote by Sunday, March 18, 2018.

I want to make a Doodle Stitch Beanie!

It's seriously a fun pattern to knit so Meaghan and I put together some kits with more color options! See the Doodle Stitch Beanie Kits >

Remember, this round of selections closes Sunday, March 18, 2018 so be sure to vote right away.


Basync Brioche Cowls by Meaghan Schmaltz

Meet Basync Brioche. These two new cowls designed by Meaghan Schmaltz are knit in a simple brioche design and are a great starting project for a knitter new to this unique stitch. The cowls abruptly switch the main color and contrasting color at the midway point giving them a stunning graphic quality.

These cowls were designed in Ewe So Sporty yarn specifically for its color choices. Our color pairings are second-to-none! Combine one ball of Sky Blue and one of Sapphire to make the smaller cowl; two balls of Soft Sage and Pistachio for the larger. Or maybe try Vanilla and Black Licorice, Lavender and Indigo, Aquamarine and Teal, Cotton Candy and Red Poppy. There are so many tone-on-tone color combinations that will look great! See Ewe So Sporty yarn >

Basync Brioche knitting pattern features two sizes. The small blue version is the perfect size to throw on to accent an outfit or tuck inside a jacket. It's 24" around and will be so squishy and soft. 

The green version worked in Soft Sage and Pistachio is a generous 61" circumference infinity scarf that can be wrapped two or even three times for a dramatic drape or super cuddly cowl.

Give them a try! Get the Basync Brioche cowl on unapologeticknitter.com or on Ravelry. See Ewe So Sporty yarn.
