Scrappy V: My New Summer Design

Isn’t Alli’s rainbow Scrappy V just amazing?! My favorite and most used yarn weight is, without a doubt, sock yarn. After wrapping up a shawl, sweater, pair of socks or some other fingering weight project, I am known to place my leftover balls of yarn on a shelf. Each day I walk by said shelf…

The Tegna pattern is authored by Caitlin Hunter (@boylandknitworks on Instagram), and while this pattern is her…
