Did You Miss My Trendy New Trollies?

Did You Miss My Trendy New Trollies?

Last week I released my latest pattern – Trollies. It is a cute little pair of shorts for babies up to 12 months old and I just wanted to make sure you didn’t miss the release and don’t miss out on the time limited discount. I know I usually release my new patterns on the last Tuesday of the month, but the end of November is looking pretty full for me. My husband is hoping to come home for the first time this year and I have a few other commitments. So I have brought the Trollies release forward by a couple of weeks.

Where Can I Buy Trollies?

The pattern is now available to buy in my Ravelry Store, in my Payhip Store, here on my website. Hurry though! All release discounts only last for the rest of today! The pattern is also be available on LoveCrafts but I am unable to offer a discount on there.

Tell Me More!

If you follow me on social media you may have seen one or two photos of these cute little shorts. Or if you have read my previous blog post My Trendy New Trollies Have Arrived! you will know that I designed this baby knit when my step-daughter was expecting her second baby.

She had not long found out that she was having a baby girl, and had requested a few things in pink and grey. I decided to go with grey for these shorts as they will be perfect for the baby to wear when playing on the floor with her big brother. But I also wanted to incorporate the pink so added a cute little bow.

If you want to have a look at some of the other things I knitted for my granddaughter you can see them in my earlier blog post Recent Knitting Patterns I Have Loved

The Lace

One of the things you will notice first about Trollies is the cute little lace detail on the bottom of the legs. This is a garter based lace and although it is quite simple it is also eye-catching. It is knitted separately and then the legs are picked up afterwards. If you wanted you could leave this off for a cleaner, simpler finish. You might also prefer to knit Trollies without it if you are making them for a little boy.

You could also knit the lace in a contrasting colour. One of my testers did this and I think it is super cute and effective. If you are like me and need portable projects to keep in your bag in case you find yourself waiting whilst running errands, this is perfect. You can easily knit the little lace sections on the go.

The Waistband

As you will see in the photos I finished off the waistband of my Trollies with a cute little pink bow. But I think it would look super cute if you used a button instead. A few of my testers used nothing at all and left the waistband plain. I put in some elastic in my pair, and have included instructions on how I did this in case you want to do it too. One of the testers made an i-cord and used this instead of elastic and used it to tie a pretty bow at the front.

Why not have a look at some of my testers project pages for some inspiration – Labedz Trollies, Eyenowhour’s Trollies, KenneyJane’s Trollies, Erin’s Trollies.

How Big Will You Go?

So how big is the little one you are planning to make these for? 12 months old? Not a problem at all! The pattern is graded for sizes from Preemie all the way up to one year. As I said earlier, the lace is knitted flat then the legs are picked up and knitted with the body being in the round. This means there is very little seaming to do at the end, just the little bit in the crotch. That makes this pattern perfect for knitters who don’t like to sew seams or weave in too many ends when they have finished.

Use All the Yarn!

Really these are a great stash buster project for all those bit and pieces of baby yarn you have left over from making cardigans and blankets. You could go wild and use a different colour for the lace, for the legs and even stripes on the body part. How many combinations of colours can you come up with?

The pattern is now available in my Ravelry store and here on my website with 15% off, you don’t need a code. You can also get the pattern in my Payhip store where you will need to use the code MyTrollies to get the discount. But hurry! The code expires in just a few hours! Don’t forget to make sure you are on my Email List so you get your excusive subscriber 30% discount for all my future pattern releases.

Did You Miss My Trendy New Trollies?

Coming Soon – My Trendy New Trollies?

Trollies! I am sorry, I just love the word trollies! It will probably come as no surprise to you that I have recently been working on a new knitting pattern and I just had to name it something fun. I know I usually release my new patterns on the last Tuesday of the month, but the end of November is looking pretty full for me. My husband is hoping to come home for the first time this year and I have a few other commitments. So I have brought this release forwards to Tuesday 10th November 2020.

If you follow me on social media you may have seen one or two photos of these cute little shorts. But if you haven’t you might not have seen these cuties, so let me introduce you now!

Earlier in the year I was busy knitting lots and lots of baby things for the upcoming arrival of a new granddaughter. I made a few pretty things like a ruffled dress and matching Knickers. But I also wanted to make something that was comfy for the baby to roll around on the floor in. I called them Trollies, and I think they will be perfect for when my granddaughter is learning to roll over and crawl after her big brother.

Don’t Miss My New Knickers Discount!

Don’t Miss My New Knickers Discount!

As you may have read in my blog post last week I Have My New Knickers Out! my latest pattern is a cute pair of ruffled baby knickers. You will probably also know that you can get your discounted copy of Knickers on Ravelry, with an automatic 15% off. On Payhip where you can use the code KnickersRelease for 15% off and here on my own website. But what you might not realise is that all codes and offers finish today, the 3rd November so don’t miss out!

As you will know, earlier this year my knitting time was filled with knitting lots and lots of baby things for the arrival of a new granddaughter. She arrived in the summer, and I cannot believe she is already over two months old! But I would like to take you back to the spring, when one of the first pink things I made when I found out the baby was going to be a girl was a cute little dress. It was a pattern called Edyth by Jenny Weibe and I was lucky enough to be gifted the pattern from last year’s Gift-a-Long.

The dress had the most gorgeous ruffles on the sleeves which were so much fun to knit! If you haven’t seen the photos of this cute dress they are in my earlier blog post Recent Knitting Patterns I Have Loved

Inspired by the Ruffles!

Anyone looking at the dress cannot help but be inspired by the gorgeous ruffles. They are simple to make and yet so effective when they are finished. And what does every little girl need to go with a cute little dress? Knickers of course! And what could be cuter than a double whammy of ruffles on those little knickers?

Last week was the exciting launch day of my Knickers! pattern, and I was excited to share the pattern because I know you will love making them for those little girls in your life. Don’t forget you can grab you copy of the pattern on Ravelry, Payhip and LoveCrafts as well as here on my own website! The pattern is discounted by 15% for just a few more hours here, on Ravelry and Payhip (don’t forget you will need the code KnickersRelease for the discount on Payhip) . Unfortunately I am unable to discount it on LoveCrafts. If you are a subscriber to my newsletter check your inbox for your exclusive discount code for 30% off.

And So Are Born Ruffled Knickers!

These Knickers have a construction that starts at the waist on the back, goes down to the gusset and then back up to the front band. This means there is a little seaming to do, but only a small amount on the sides. The ribbing is a 1×1 twisted rib, of course as it is my favourite, and it is done as part of the main body. The ribbing on the legs is done after seaming the sides, and they are picked up and knitted in the round.

And then of course you finish off with lots of fun ruffles. This is the bit where you can have a bit of fun. You can use the same yarn as you used for the main part of the knickers, or you could go wild and use a contrast. One of my test knitters did this and I think the effect is very eye-catching. Why not have a look at some of my testers project pages for some inspiration – Erin’s Knickers, Baby Ryan’s Knickers! and Jess’ Knickers Bikini Set.

Cover Up Those Nappies!

Let’s face it, they are a necessity of any baby’s life but that doesn’t mean that we need to be left looking at them. Disposable nappies, although convenient, are not nice to look at. When I had my son I used real nappies and they came with some really cute covers. But he wore trousers which covered them up so you couldn’t see them anyway. When my daughter was a baby I found that with work and the demands of a toddler it was much better to use disposables. But then she was wearing dresses and skirts which showed them off and I ended up needing cute knickers to hide them.

Use All the Yarn!

Really these are a great stash buster project for all those bit and pieces of baby yarn you have left over from making cardigans and blankets. You could go wild and use a different colour for all the outfits, or even a different colour for each individual ruffle!

Have You Seen My New Knickers?

Have You Seen My New Knickers?

I have been working on a new pattern for baby knickers, and if you follow me on IG you may have seen one or two photos of them already. But if you haven’t followed me on social media yet you might not have seen these cuties, so let me introduce you now!

Those Ruffles!

I enjoyed making the ruffles so much it got me thinking. They are simple to make and yet so effective when they are finished. And what does every little girl need to go with a cute little dress? Knickers of course! And what could be cuter than lots of ruffles on those little knickers?

Ruffled Knickers!

I set to work with a pair of needles, cute pink yarn and a pen and paper to work out the maths. I tried a few ways to construct the knickers, starting with trying to do part of them in the round. Of course I did! It is my favourite method of knitting everything! In the end I have gone with a construction that starts at the waist on the back, goes down to the gusset and then back up to the front band. This means there is a little seaming to do, but only a small amount on the sides.

And of course you finish off with lots of fun ruffles. This is the bit where you can have a bit of fun.
