Done Roving Yarns
Frolicking Feet

We are excited to announce that we are launching a brand new Year of Yarn in 2014.

Each month we will review a new yarn and include a free pattern to knit a 14” x 14” block. Knit each block along with us, using the suggested yarn in the colors of your choice. At the end of the year, sew each block together and create a unique, fabulous throw to keep you cozy.

Project ideas:  Socks, shawls, hats, sweaters, baby blankets, pretty much anything a crafter can imagine

Technique recommendations:  Lace, cables, and basic stitches

Fiber content: 100% Domestic Superwash Merino

Gauge:  6 – 8 stitches per inch using U.S. size 2-4  (3-3.5mm) needles

Care instructions: Machine wash gentle cycle, tumble dry low
Yarn details

•    480 yds/113g (4oz)
•    Super Fine (1) Weight – Sock, Fingering, Baby
•    85 multi-color, tonal, or solid color combinations
•    The color we used for the block is A Maine Summer Sky, and it has the soft teals and blues of the Caribbean Sea.

We love that this yarn is soft, beautifully dyed, easy care and easy to work with, and comes in a generous put-up. The weight and name make us immediately think of socks, which would be a wonderful and soft treat for your feet. However, don’t rule out the many other uses for this beautiful superwash merino, such as shawls, hats, sweaters, and baby blankets. This fiber will create spectacular stitch definition and amazing drape even at tighter gauges. Lace, cables, and even basic stitches will shine. The best thing we can say about this yarn is we had to fight it away from our crafting friends when they caught sight of it!

Block # 3
Still trying to get the yarn for March's block. The sight I found the color I like for it, is out of stock. Local yarn stores have the brand but not the color I want. Trying to buy Madarin Green, it is a Kelly Green to a Lime Green color.

Response to questions
Thank you so much for your interest in our free Year of Yarn block patterns. We always strive to provide you with each month's pattern during the first week of the month, and we hope to have this one up by the end of the day. Currently, the link is still directing everyone to last month's block because the pattern for March has not yet been posted. Thank you so much for your patience, and we are excited to share this pattern with you!
Blockk #3
The link for Block #2 is bringing up last month's block pattern.
Wrong Instructions
It would be nice if someone would respond to all the comments about this link containing block 2 instead of block 3.
This is not the block that the pattern link was wrong. Where is block 3
Where can you buy this color from Done Roving? The company's site does not list the color "A Maine's Summer Sky",
I'm glad it's not just me! I thought I was doing something wrong!
I, too, am getting Block 2 when downloading Block 3.
I seem to get getting block 2 when downloading block 3. Am I doing something wrong?
