Chalet Days






worsted weight yarn




worsted weight yarn


Chalet Days, from longtime Friend of the Flock Samantha Guerin, was designed with simple pleasures in mind, making it both a comfort to knit and to wear. This worsted weight colorwork yoke pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down - perfect to try on as you go, and short rows are worked to raise the back neck for a perfect fit.

A note: Chalet Days is available as a digital download and a yarn+pattern bundle here at, but 100% of pattern sales revenue goes directly to the designer, just as if you bought the pattern directly from their website or on Ravelry. We think this way, everybody wins: you get an easier, more straightforward experience as a consumer, our indie designer friends get to realize the maximum revenue from their work, and you get another great way to access new designs in our yarn outside of our pattern collections.
