Newly Noted Knitting Challenge

We can’t wait to see all of the beautiful projects you make for our Great Loopy Knitting Challenge! (We put up the challenges on the January 1 blog post. There is also a Loopy Ewe Challenges link on the right side of the blog.)

One of the challenges for this semester is called Newly Noted, and requires using a pattern that was published in 2017 or 2018. I’ve rounded up a few of my most favorites, as I was looking for options. Maybe you’ll find one you like, too. (All photos used with permission.) As with all patterns for challenges, make sure you’re using the required yardage. I make things longer when I find a pattern I like and it’s short just a little yardage.
