As promised in my last post I thought I should give you a bit of a round up of all the patterns I released over the summer. If you are anything like me you will have been distracted by the nice weather. Maybe you were working in the garden, or just enjoying some time relaxing.
My Loyal Royal Subject
This pattern was released way back in April. Its a cowl knitted in the round with a provisional cast on and the stitches grafted together at the end. It was knitted in Cascade Eco+ and designed to go with my headband You’re My Favourite Subject.
Both of these patterns are named for one of my favourite songs from the musical Hamilton. I was listening to the soundtrack a lot whilst working on these designs and so it seemed right to name them for the King George song. This pattern can be found on Ravelry and Payhip.
This next pattern was one that was designed with my granddaughter in mind. I was well underway with making cardigans and other bits and bobs for the upcoming new baby. One thing I thought would come in useful was some cotton cloths. When my grandson was little he used to have a muslin with him all the time and he called it his Muzie. So that was the name I gave these.
The pattern is for a set of three cloths, each one with a slightly different stitch pattern. They are knitted in 100% cotton which means they can be washed safely at 60 degrees. They can be so versatile. You could use them as a comforter. Such as for little preemie babies to keep the parents’ scent near them at all times. They can be used as comforters, as cloths to clean up little ones or even as wash cloths.
Mabel was a dress that I released in July. Again, it was designed for my granddaughter. The skirt is knitted first, in the round and then the body is knitted flat. I love the way that the skirt flares much bigger than the waist.
Knitted in Baby DK yarn you will find the perfect colour for the little one in your family. The pattern comes in sizes from Preemie up to 12 months. Every little girl deserves a cute dress!
This pattern was designed as a special request from my step-daughter for her daughter. I had previously made a sleep sack, Cadalach, for her son when he was born and she wanted another one. This time I designed the sleeping bag to go around the baby from side to side rather than head to toe.
Knitted in baby chunky yarn it is a quick knit despite its relatively large size. It will keep babies nice and cosy in their pushchair or pram. However, it is not recommended for unsupervised sleeping.
In the Pipeline
I have a few patterns that I am currently working on, in various stages of production. I have a few more baby items to come but also so other projects. Vera, a jumper, will be coming at the end of the month. I am also starting to work on a couple of cowls and hats.
Currently my patterns are available on Ravelry, Payhip and LoveCrafts. But the exciting news is that over the next few weeks I will be working to add them here on my website too. Soon you will be able to check out directly from here! Balla is the first of my patterns to be available.
