This pattern is designed with Red Heart soft yarn. It is extremely soft and cozy. Any soft worsted weight yarn will work for this pattern. This tail is completely seamless. It is knit in the rounds with moss stitch and cables. Any advanced beginner could knit this tail. This tail is cozy enough to be a blanket as well.

My name is Lara and I love to knit! I have been knitting for 13 years. My oldest son is almost 13! Before he was born, I picked up the needles and taught myself to knit! I started with a scarf, jumped to a jacket and hat for my newborn and then to a baptism gown! I have knit many, many sweaters, hats, mitts, socks over the last 10 years! Everytime I pick up needles, I have something else in my mind I want to try! I have an electronic systems engineering degree, but have chosen to stay home with my children at this moment. I love working with numbers, so writing up patterns is a great challenge for me! I have 6 wonderful children, so have many opportunities to knit for them! I have also learned some crocheting as I find it adds to my knit projects! I hope you enjoy these patterns as much as I do!
