Kelley's latest project is the Pengweeno Baby Jacket by Stephen West. This pattern is great for using up scraps of yarn! Kelley is using up her scraps of Hikoo Sueño DK. This baby jacket has knitted welts for a fun texture and it's a great project for practicing weaving in ends. In this week's video, Kelley shows how to make the knitted welts. 

 

 

Tips to Make this Project Easier

  • Kelley wove in her ends at the end of each day that way she didn't have to weave in all of the ends all at once.
  • Check out fellow knitter’s project pages on Ravelry for color combinations and find the ones that you like. Then, try to mimic those projects.
