Wonderful Wallaby

This is the Wonderful Wallaby. Carol A. Anderson, of Cottage Creations, designed it and knitters galore have knitted it. The pattern booklet is Cottage Creations W03, not available as a download. It is well worth the effort to locate it at your local yarn shop or favorite internet shop.

Nearly 3000 Ravelers have posted finished projects on their project page. When Ravelers take to patterns in droves, you can trust it’s a keeper.

Mine is knitted in left-overs from another Cottage Creations project: a full sized Rambling Rows afghan. I ran out of oddments and ended up leaving the hood off and knitted a garter stitch collar instead. It’s a cozy sweater, with a built-in handwarmer. When you buy the booklet you will have the pattern for a Wallaby in almost all the sizes people come in, from size 2 Toddler to 48″ chest. Try the Wonderful Wallaby when you have time.  Bet you can’t make just one!

  1. I love this pattern–have to whip out another almost immediately. I do them in 2 yr. increments for the granddaughters, but one of last year’s has disappeared in a custody mixup, so I need to replace it pronto. I love the idea of the oddments, but I would never have enough for that many sweaters. Indeed, I have done the opposite. Since I have to order in the Plymouth Encore I use for sweater yarn, I always have extra, so I knit log cabin afghans from it. Just backwards of what you are doing.

    My Rambling Rows pattern came in today. Perhaps I can start in the spring.

  2. @Panhandle Jane…It is a wonderful pattern, as are so many of the Cottage Creations patterns. I just bought yarn this weekend, Plymouth Encore, to start another Rambling Rows pretty soon.

  3. i have knit several of these in size 2 and 4 as baby gifts. they are very impressive when opened by an expectant mother. they are pretty easy and don’t take very long to knit. someday i will make a full size one.
