The Whole Gang Gaiter

A two-hank wonder!

Surprise! It’s the whole Spud & Chloë Gang, all wearing their holiday presents! I knit all these gaiters to keep everyone warm this year for when:

Top row, l to r:

Jason goes hunting in Buoy #7219.

Colleen walks her dog in Hedge #7210 and Giggle #7215.

Jared goes snowmobiling in Flannel #7201.

Sue runs errands in Snow Day #7216 and Rhino #7220.

Nate chops wood in Carbon #7203.

Middle row, l to r:

Ria takes her kids to school in Rocket #7211 and Ballerina #7214.

Neighbor Jillian shovels her walk in Wave #7217 and Bubble #7213.

I travel all the way back home in Peat #7204 and Fearless #7218.

Bottom row, l to r:

Blue watches for squirrels in Cedar #7209 and Cornsilk #7208.

Linda takes care of her alpacas in Bayou #7207 and Soapstone #7200.

Auntie Sarah feeds her chickens in Sequoia #7205 and Sandbox #7212.

Not pictured:

Karen plays with her grandbaby in the snow in Sunkissed #7206 and Sugar Plum #7221.

The whole gang will be warm this winter! And now, you, too, can keep your whole gang warm with this free pattern!

Super speedy… you still have time to make this holiday knit!

You already know how I love Spud & Chloë Fine and I adore playing with color.

Dogwood Set

It’s so pretty, it was impossible to wait!

Plus, its going to be winter in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere soon!

Beautiful mittens and a matching slip stitch cowl.

Jane Richmond designed this excellent set for Spud & Chloë Outer.

Simple and classic with delightful details.

Punchy color with playful details.

You can download the Dogwood Set right here!

Even if you don’t live in the Southern Hemisphere you could take a cue from me.

Crank the air and knit the Dogwood Set anyway!

Take care Pals!
