We've been calling Sirdar Crofter DK the ugly duckling yarn around the shop. Not that it's a horrible looking ball of yarn or anything:
It's because it looks sooo much better knitted up!
We made this baby vest out of it, and it's an instant classic:
The yarn does all the work for you, and you've got an impressive fair-isle-looking sweater for the little guy or girl in your life!
Lisa used only ONE skein of this to make the smallest size- the pattern is the Owl Baby Vest (rav link) without the owls.
Free pattern + less than $10 of yarn = Baby shower WIN!
