Baridee Knit Kit includes 2 skeins of yarn, 1 of Dragon Wagon on Djinni Sock from Dragonfly Fibers and 1 of Forget Me Not on MCS Fingering from Western Sky Knits plus a digital copy of the pattern.
The Baridee designed by Anthony Casalena was the Yarnover Truck's first commissioned knit design and holds a special place for us. The name is a contraction of the two original owners Barbra + Maridee = Baridee. And this piece was a favorite of Maridee's late mother Diane and so we always have a sample of it worked up on the Truck! The original design was for a single color but so many worked it up using two that Anthony added those instructions to the pattern. Here is a link to the pattern on Ravelry:
If you like the pattern and want to make it but these are not the colors you like, please shoot us an email to [email protected]. We'd be happy to create a kit with different colors just for you!
