Stitches West Surprises:
We already talked about the great booths that you should check out at Stitches and that I have a few exciting things happening. I am still so excited that I will have my full team together for the first time EVER in person. Then I get to make the debut of my yarn line, Chic Sheep by Marly Bird, to many knitters and crocheters. Last but not least I will have TWO patterns featured in the fashion show. Even better, they are FREE patterns on my website!
Stitches West Fashion Show Entries:
Since Red Heart is a sponsor of the fashion show this year I wanted to get involved a little more than normal. Although most of the designs in the fashion show will be clothing items I have submitted two blankets to walk down the runway!
Many of you have already seen the Chic Sheep Dream Blanket that my super talented friend Anne Berk designed for me. This blanket highlights all 24 colors of Chic Sheep by Marly Bird and uses the intarsia method. It is stunning and if you haven’t seen it yet be sure to head to the blog post about it to check it out and get the FREE pattern.
I didn’t want to leave my crochet friends feeling like they didn’t have something in the fashion show, or a beautiful blanket option made from Chic Sheep by Marly Bird. So I designed a special C2C (corner-2-corner) blanket just for you.
Chic Sheep Day Dream Blanket:
The Chic Seep Day Dream blanket is a corner to corner crochet blanket using all 24 colors of Chic Sheep in a modern square design. Designed to bring a modern color block twist to the corner to corner concept. Selecting your own color placement is half the fun. Using the Chic Sheep by Marly Bird 24 color pallet you can customize the blanket for anyone so they can cherish it forever.

About Chic Sheep:
Chic Sheep is a NEW yarn designed by me, Marly Bird, and produced by Red Heart Yarns. It is a 100% merino wool meaning that you can machine wash and dry your projects with no worry. You’ll love knitting and crocheting with these happy colors that combine with each other so effortlessly. This yarn is soft and springy yet durable, and excellent for patterns requiring stitch definition. Chic Sheep is the softest wool from the coolest sheep.
