Get ready for Fall, yes it’s coming, with the always-just-right Wonderful Wallaby Sweaters.  The Wonderful Wallaby is written in sizes for entire family beginning with size child size 2 all the way up to adult 2XL.  The roomy fit, hood and hand “pouch” keep you cozy make it the perfect grab and go layer for outdoor festivities and chilly nights. Seamless construction is always a bonus. The Wonderful Wallaby is knit from the bottom up, the sleeves are knit up from the cuff, it all comes together at the yoke and finishes with the hood. Detailed instruction makes the “pouch” a breeze. All sizes call for worsted weight yarn, shown in our Signature Norumbega Yarn on Gracious in a size 8. Plymouth Encore Worsted Yarn is an easy care, machine washable option, and many worsted weight yarns are suitable.

    Any chance you have an old version of the pattern available? I contacted Carol at Cottage Creations and she doesn’t have any left.

      Hi Anne, Thanks for your interest in the older version of the Wallaby Pattern. I’m sorry but we have not had a copy of the previous version in stock for a couple years now, however we do have the new version in stock if those would be helpful to you. Please let us know if there’s anything else with which we can help!
