WEBS is excited to be the official yarn vendor for the next Patty Lyons knit-along, the Roselle Tee! Patty’s video KAL is more like an online class with sweater modifications, knitting how-to's and hours of videos for the price of a pattern. You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry here.
As if that wasn’t enough, you can knit a matching outfit for your Dolores doll for a fabulous Dolores and Me look! This adorable tee is completely reversible.

YARN SUB SUGGESTIONS
While you wait for your color of Granville to come back in stock (you know you’ll want to knit two 😀) Patty has come up with a few yarn subs:
- For a cotton/animal fiber blend try Lana Grossa Ecopuno or Lana Grossa Gomitolo Puno
- For a 100% wool option try Valley Yarns Valley Superwash Sport
HOW TO SUB THE RIGHT AMOUNT
To make sure you order enough yarn, take the number of hanks you need of Granville and multiply by 167yds. Then divide that by the yardage of the yarn you are subbing.
For example, if you want to knit the large that requires 7 hanks of Granville ➤ 7 x 167yds = 1169yds. Then if you would like to sub the Valley Superwash Sport at 153yds per ball ➤ 1169yds ÷ 153yds = 7.6 balls. So you would then buy 8 balls (or 9 if you want extra for swatching and to adjust the pattern).
