    Hi and thank you so much! I have knit the Barley many times. Love it! I love the Antler Hat and was wondering if you would consider a pullover for men. I knit the hat for my brother in law and would love to knit him an Antler pullover. Happy New Year!

    Thank you so much! I have learned a lot from the patterns in the Simple Collection and recently thought I would like to make a Barley in a sock weight. This will be something fun to work on this week.

    Lovely! I live in an area where our “winters” are quite warm (hence the quote marks). Thanks for this winsome addition to the Light wardrobe. Merry Christmas/Hanukkah and Happy New Year to you and yours!
