Spunky, surprising, and super-NYC knitwear designer,Lindsay Degen, created theCity Block SweaterandVintage Taxi Bootiesfor Purl Soho as an ode to glorious Big Apple moxie, as well as to the unfettered nature of babies. Simple intarsia stripes and checks make colorful splashes in these roomy and practical garments, giving babies full freedom of expression!
These patterns may embrace the spirit of our hometown, but knitting them doesn't require any big-city know-how. TheCity Block Sweaterworks up in simple flat pieces with easy blocks of color along the way, and the whole thing is seamed together at the end. TheVintage Taxi Bootiesare knit in one top-down piece with double-yarn soles for super squish and I-cord laces for staying put!
Both patterns use Purl Soho’sPocket Posymini skeins, and the sweater also requires twoPosy full-size skeins. A kid-proof blend that also happens to be beautifully hand dyed and machine-washable, cast on for these super fun knits with 20% off all loose skeins of Posy and Pocket Posy, now through Sunday, June 2nd, in our store and online!
