I attempted to dye my Coopworth with some birch bark, as described in Jenny Dean’s Wild Color book. It didn’t work. All I got was little pieces of bark stuck in my wool. It was supposed to dye a reddish color, so I added a bit of some kind of red dye that I bought, so now it’s a little red. Very disappointed.

Beginning with one stitch, Aeque is worked flat from side to side in Stockinette stitch with a simple stripe sequence that blends together 5 colors of fingering weight yarn. One little seam up the back joins it together. Aeque is a fun and quick knit that is perfect for using up small amounts of fingering weight yarn.Devin is a free wrap pattern from Berroco.
