For Tiny Toes: Sweetie Socks Pattern

Each design in the Little Spuds collection comes with a bonus accessory pattern which complements the finished project. Today, we’re highlighting the Sweetie Socks pattern knit in our Stripey Fine yarn!
These simple socks are the perfect way to show off each color combination of Stripey Fine (shown above in #7863 Blueberry Cheesecake), all while keeping tiny toes toasty! Each Stripey Fine colorway is designed to coordinate with solid colors from our Fine, Sweater and Outer palettes, making it easy for you to mix and match for your next project.

The Sweetie Socks pattern is included with the Roundabout Romper, Honeybear Hoodie and Bundle Me Blankie patterns. Shown above from the top are samples knit in #7863 Blueberry Cheesecake, #7860 Tootie Fruitie, #7866 Cherry Sundae, #7865 Orange Cream, #7862 Neopolitan, #7861 Mint Chip, and #7864 Grape Freeze.

Tutorial: How to Make Twisty Ties

The perfect finishing touch on your Little Spuds project will elevate it to heirloom status, and our new tutorial video offers a fast & simple alternative to an i-cord!

We heartily recommend this method when creating the ties for the waistband of the Boo Boo Bottoms, shown below in Spud & Chloë Fine #7822 Sidewalk. Tie the look together (pardon the pun!) by also using today’s featured technique when creating the ties for the accompanying Tiny Topper hat pattern, shown below in Stripey Fine #7863 Blueberry Cheesecake.

Before you know it, you’ll have an adorable set fit for the new Little Spud in your life!

Available Now: Roundabout Romper & Sweetie Socks

The Little Spuds collection is here, and we’re pleased to spotlight the Roundabout Romper, an all-in-one garment which can be worn alone or used as a layering piece.

It’s knit with Spud & Chloë Fine yarn (shown here in #7807 Tutu) and can be left open at the bottom to create a sweet little dress, or secured with velcro tabs to create little leg holes for easy on-and-off.

The pattern also includes instructions to knit a coordinating pair of roll-top, heel-less socks knit with Spud & Chloë Stripey Fine yarn (shown here in #7862 Neopolitan). These sweet stockinette socks are easy to pull on and off of kicky little feet!

For a limited time, enjoy 50% off your Ravelry PDF purchase of the Roundabout Romper pattern when you enter ROMPER at checkout! You’ll receive a PDF copy of the pattern which includes instructions to knit both projects pictured here. This offer is good now through Midnight CST on June 30, 2015.

Before we sign off, we’d like to share this behind-the-scenes look at the Little Spuds Photo Shoot! We had a great time photographing these adorable little ones for our pattern collection, and hope you enjoy getting a little peek at the process, too!
