Annie's Swiss Cheese Scarf Pattern



My daughter and I have been working together on Annie's Swiss Cheese Scarf pattern to go along 
with the new book.



It's all finished now and the pattern is available as a free download on Ravelry HERE.

This scarf is just like Annie's in the story. Big "Swiss cheese" holes on one side.
It went super quickly and only took one skein of yarn. 
I chose Quince and Co. Osprey in the Rosa Rugosa colorway.



I let my daughter knit some of the sections by herself for a more "authentic" look. :)



.
Everyone who purchases the book, Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf will also receive a free pdf download of my Playful Stripes Cardigan pattern
(The sweater that Annie is wearing in the story.)

Knit up these two patterns so that your child can match Annie! 



Wouldn't this make a fun little set to give along with the book for a present?
Here is my daughter sporting her own "Annie ensemble."

And now with attitude...

I ordered it for my 11 year old, but I hope she's not too old for it. I just couldn't resist--it's so adorable! But I didn't get the Playful Stripes pattern---I must have closed the window too fast. Can you help?

Hi Alana, I ordered a copy for my grand daughter but the email confirming my order did not have the coupon code in it. All it says is: Your coupon code for a free Playful Stripes Cardigan download is . Click HERE to redeem it. There is no code included! LOL
I've email you about this...if you can help.

I pre-ordered the book, and I didn't get the coupon for the playful stripes cardigan either. I emailed about it immediately, but haven't received a response. Help!

Hey everyone!

Im so sorry! There was a little glitch in the system and some of you didn't receive your code for the free playful stripes pattern. It's all fixed now and if you didn't get your code, please email me and I will have the pattern sent to you right away.

I apologize for that!

Oh how I wish I had a little girl! My little boy is interested in knitting, but he's only into reading about Ninja's right now, lol. Maybe by Christmas...

I'm so excited to get this for my daughter (6.5) and niece (5)! Annie looks quite lovable and I bet girls of all ages will get a kick out of the story.

Congratulations on your book!!
