Spring is just around the corner, and this adorable Kelsey Dress is the perfect knit for the little girl in your life! Michelle used one just one skein of Recycled Tweed by @queenslandcollection for the smallest size and had leftovers! Sized for ages 12 months - 6 years, this cute little dress is perfect for spring or paired with a shirt and leggings on chillier days. Recycled Tweed is a DK-weight yarn made of 100% recycled materials, making it an earth-friendly and pretty choice.

We have lots of choices that work with this great little pattern. In addition to Recycled Tweed, Michelle recommends Malabrigo Arroyo or Plymouth Dreambaby.

Sample time! 🥳

Midwest mornings are still a little chilly... It`s the perfect weather for a light cowl! Cubes and Hues knitted in @gustowool`s Echoes is a soft and beautiful springtime accessory. This pattern uses brioche knitting, but a similar effect could easily be made with simple knits and purls.

Echoes comes in two identical mini-skeins with exciting gradients dyed on a fingering weight merino and nylon blend. This beautiful yarn is hand-dyed in Turkey.
