Hi, a message seems to be going around the boards that this pattern is only available for free until 10/23/13. Just wanted to let knitters know that Willow Wednesday patterns are free indefinitely! Enjoy!

The final 5 sweaters are now available! Prairie Doll Sweaters Part 2

The sweaters in the photo were knit as color swatches & not to any particular size, but when I was asked to write up the pattern after the catalog was released I standardized the sizing (so any “oddness” in necks/sleeves/sizes has all been fixed in the pattern).
Each sweater takes around 100-150 yards & and from experience I can say that the whole set of 10 can be knit in a weekend if you are very very determined, and ignore things like walking the dogs, eating, sleeping…
