Mosswood Drive – Why?

Where does the name for this pattern come from, I hear you ask! Its a good question! And one that might have a surprising answer. I have named patterns for my favourite songs from my favourite band (Queen, just in case you didn’t know). I have also named patterns for my favourite musicals (Hamilton and Jesus Christ Superstar). But I have also named patterns for the areas in which I live now and have lived in the past. And this pattern falls into that category. One of my very good friends lives in a road with “Mosswood” in the name. This pattern is a bit of a nod to her and our friendship. She knows who she is!

Mosswood Drive – For You?

Do you like to have a project that you can just pick up and put down when you have only a few minutes to work on it without worrying about losing your place? Maybe you need something to keep in the car for when you are running errands? I know I have been keeping a project in there at the moment because whilst we are being encouraged to shop alone. And of course, its always nice to have a project that you don’t need to concentrate on too much when you are enjoying a movie or series in the evening. Mosswood Drive is a great project for that. Just do a few rounds when you have time.

Mosswood Drive – What?

So I guess you want me to tell you a bit more about the pattern? It is a beanie or toque style hat knitted in DK weight yarn. It includes instructions for a provisional cast on which can be grafted to the live stitches to make a double thickness brim. But you could also use your favourite cast on and just fold the brim over in the traditional way. I know a lot of people aren’t fans of grafting stitches.

What you have probably noticed about Mosswood Drive is the stitch pattern. It is eye catching but also really addictive to knit! You will need a solid yarn as well as a variegated. I used Stylecraft Bellissima for the solid colour and You and Me for the variegated. And this is where you can get really inventive! You could use that extremely busy skein of yarn that you love but you just don’t know what to do with. This is the perfect pattern for taming the crazy! You could use an ombre or a mini skein set. You could also use some scraps. Whatever combination you chose it will be a totally individual hat!

Mosswood Drive – The Crown?

Included in the pattern is not only the option to make it in a 17, 19 or 22 inch brim, but I have also added three lots instructions on changing the crown depending upon how fitted or slouchy you like your beanie hats. You could make one for your son who likes his hats nice and fitted, and then one for your sister who loves to wear hers big with a lot of slouch! And then there is the option to add a pom pom! So many choices!

And look at the great swirl on the crown that the decreases creates!

Mosswood Drive – Where?

You can grab your copy in a few places. Here on my website as well as on Love Crafts. If you are a subscriber to my newsletter I have sent out a code which you will be able to redeem on either Ravelry or Payhip. This will give you a discount of 25% for one week. So you will need to be quick! Sign up to the newsletter here – Newsletter.

Have You Heard About the Amazing Stitch Along Event?

Have You Heard About the Amazing Stitch Along Event?

What is the Stitch Along?

Let me introduce you to the Around the World Stitch Along! It is an event that I am joining in as a participating designer. It is my first year, but the even itself is in its second year. The easiest way for me to start is to tell you what the intro in the Ravelry group page says!

We are a group of independent designers from most of the continents (and welcome anyone else from around the world – especially Asia, South America, and maybe even Antarctica if there are designers there) who have come together to share our designs with special deals and fun.

This event will last six weeks, beginning February 15, 2021 and ending March 28, 2021, so you can make more than one project or make a really large project to enter for prizes! We will have games and prizes and drawings, along with the help and chatter from the actual designers of the patterns you will be making. This Stitch A Long will kick off the autumn knitting/crochet season in the Southern Hemisphere and will catch the end of the winter knitting/crochet season of the Northern Hemisphere.

Remember that to win a prize, you must not only finish and post in the correct thread, but you need to be a member of this group.

If you want to join the group it can be found here – Stitch Along Ravelry Group

Has the Stitch Along Sale Started?

Yes! Each of the 25 designers taking part in the Stitch Along has a bundle of 5 patterns which are currently reduced by 25%. The sale runs until 23:59 PST on 19th February 2021. In order to grab your discount use the code SAL2021. The group Mods have put together a bundle of all patterns eligible for the discount. You can browse it here – Sale Bundle.

Will There Be Prizes?

Yes! If you cast on your project on or after 10am PST on the 15th February and cast off before 23:59 PST on the 28th March you could win a prize! To be eligible you need to tag your Ravelry project page with aroundtheworldsal2021, make a paid for pattern by a participating designer and post in the Finished Object thread. There are plenty of patterns for you to choose from!

Each of the designers in the Stitch Along have been asked to find a sponsor who is willing to donate a physical prize. I have been extremely lucky to have Kelly from Kelly Connor Designs sponsor me. She does the most amazing project bags and this one of hers will be on the prize list! If only I could win it!

Will There Be Games?

Yes! Pop along to the group on Ravelry and join in some of the games. You can also play on Instagram. One of the first games is this one that you can put on your Story to be entered for a prize!

Which Designers Are Taking Part?

We have a thread in the Stitch Along Ravelry group where you can find the list of participating designers. You could spend some time browsing their patterns. I am sure you will find lots of shiny new things to cast on. Once the sale is over there will be a big bundle of all the eligible patterns which will be searchable.

And I Have a Test Knit Running!

If you haven’t seen my posts on Instagram, Facebook or Instagram you might not know, but I have a test knit currently running for a beanie style hat. I still have a few spaces available if you are interested? It is in DK weight yarn, one solid and one variegated. It comes in three brim sizes and has instructions for three crowns depending upon how fitted or slouchy you like your hats.

The pattern itself will be released for sale on 2nd March, which means if you sign up now and finish before the end of the Stitch Along you can enter the finished hat for a prize! If you would like more details the test is happening in my Ravelry group – Mosswood Drive Hat Test.

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name – Hurry!

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name – Hurry!

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name Has Been Released!

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name is my latest knitting pattern and I released it last week! If you are a subscriber to my newsletter you will have received a code to get it for FREE! But hurry! The code expires tomorrow!

As I usually do I have also discounted the pattern for the first week as an introductory offer, this also finishes tomorrow! If you haven’t subscribed to my newsletter then you have missed out on this offer. But don’t worry! When you sign up you get a code for 50% off one of my patterns, and there will be other free ones for subscribers in the future so now is a great time to make sure you don’t miss out again!

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name – Why?

Where does the name for this pattern come from, I hear you ask! Well I am a huge fan of musicals. Two of my absolute favourites are Jesus Christ Superstar and Hamilton. The name for this pattern comes from Hamilton. In fact it comes from the opening song – Alexander Hamilton. I was listening to it a lot when I was working on this initially. Then when I revisited it to do all the editing I was able to watch it on Disney+.

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name – What?

So I guess you want me to tell you a bit more about the pattern? It is a headband knitted in DK weight yarn. It includes instructions for a provisional cast on and to graft at the end if you want. But you could also use your favourite cast on and cast off methods and seam it to finish. I know a lot of people aren’t fans of grafting stitches.

It is a great pattern for using up the odds and ends of balls of yarn when you have finished other projects. The biggest size should only use a maximum of 30g. And you could get really inventive and use up lots of different colours by using stripes or blocks of colour.

The most noticeable thing about The World’s Gonna Know Your Name is the twist at the front. It gives the finished item the appearance of a turban style headband. It is really effective and eye catching, but you will be surprised how much fun it is to do. The pattern includes a photo tutorial to help for the first time, but soon you will be making lots of versions of this in all the colours for everyone you can think of.

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name – an original?

The are a few things you can do to make the finished headband unique. One of my testers added a cute little button to the front. You could also add something sparkly, or change the look with some colour work. You can check out some of the tester’s project pages on Ravelry.

Do you like to have a project that you can just pick up and put down when you have only a few minutes to work on it without worrying about losing your place? Maybe you need something to keep in the car for when you are running errands? I know I have been keeping a project in there at the moment because whilst we are being encouraged to shop alone I will stay in the car whilst my husband or son runs in to quickly grab a few things. And of course, its always nice to have a project that you don’t need to concentrate on too much when you are enjoying a movie or series in the evening.

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name – Where?

You can grab your copy in a few places. Here on my website as well as on Love Crafts. If you are a subscribe to my newsletter I sent out a code which you will be able to redeem on either Ravelry or Payhip. For everyone else it is discounted on these two sites by 15% for one week.
