Happy New Year

And with the New Year comes a new pattern: 3 in 1

3in1 mod
This is an ideal garment to use up stash yarns and the fun starts when picking colors for your 3 in 1
Each layer of the body is shaped with short rows and put on hold. The next layer is cast on and joined to the previous layer by knitting with 3 needles. Don’t let that scare you, it is quite easy and fully explained in words and illustrations
