Que Sera knit by Mia

Knitty is a favorite online magazine at Patricia's Yarns as it always provides great knit-spiration. This edition has a particular pattern that has become a shop favorite, Que Sera designed by Kirsten Kapur that was immediately knit up by one of our fastest knitters, Mia. It is a beautiful sweater for upcoming spring and summer nights.

Mia used Spud & Chloe sweater in color 7512 Watermelon, a great happy color that shows off the stitch detail very well.

What a beautiful sweater! Great Job Mia!

Sweet Knits from Spud & Chloe

Spud & Chloe was introduced at Patricia's about a year ago and we were thrilled at the news. Although the 'newness' may have subsided, the love isn't going anywhere! Spud & Chloe generously offer a bunch of free patterns on their blog, two of which have been made & currently reside on the table.

First, the watermelon hat which is an adorable fast knit.

Second, ribbit.

The watermelon hat is a great hat pattern for beginners who know how to knit in the round. Ribbit also is a great pattern, however not necessarily for beginners. Both are undeniably cute. Knit out of Spud & Chloe sweater they are machine washable making for easy care. Stop by to check them out!
