Introducing: Southwest Stockings KAL

Southwest Stockings Knit Along

Southwest Stockings Knit Along

Join the Southwest Stockings Knit Along in your yarn store! I'll be hosting this instructional knit-along on our main blog, posting regularly on Instagram, and in our Ravelry group. The knit along is based on my appearance on The Knit Show with Vickie Howell where I taught how to make the Southwest Stockings. 

The Southwest Stockings pattern can either make a Christmas stocking in Ewe Ewe Baa Baa Bulky merino OR cozy socks using Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted. It's a great project for a knitting group and I'd love to have your shop join me!

Option 1: Christmas stocking in Baa Baa Bulky

The Southwest Stockings are a design that is unique to Ewe Ewe Yarns. Using the same pattern you can make two very different items! The secret's in the yarn. Use Baa Baa Bulky to create a big bright Christmas stocking OR change to a smaller needle size and Wooly Worsted yarn to a squishy pair of socks for yourself. It's super fun!

Teach the Doodle Stitch with Vickie Howell

Vickie Howell worked up a quick little class for our new Doodle Stitch Beanie. This hat pattern features an alternating yarn-in-back and yarn-in-front technique that's both easy and unique. Take a look:

The Doodle Stitch Beanie uses two balls of Ewe So Sporty yarn making it the perfect size for a class! If you would like to take a look at the pattern to consider teaching it for a class then email me here. To have the pattern available at the class you can either order paper patterns or it is also available through the Ravelry In-Store program.

Watch the video with Vickie Howell below and then use those same steps to teach a one-session class in your shop!
