Here comes the last pattern from the Powder Day collection: The Heavenly Pullover. Heavenly is a top-down, seamless pullover with set-in sleeves. It features a central cable pattern reminiscent of skiers making figure-eight tracks in fresh powder. There are also skiers making side-by-side tracks down from the shoulders. The figure-eight cable also runs down both sleeves while the back is entirely reverse stockinette stitch. The pattern is available on Ravelry and will soon be available on Loveknitting.com for EU customers. Until midnight on January 11th (my birthday), the pattern and the ebook will be available for 36% off. Thanks go again to Eleanor Dixon for technical editing as well as to my great testers. And a huge thank you to Jodi for being such a great model! I had so much fun with this collection, I’m kinda sad to be done. But! I’ve decided I like working in collections so you should expect to see more from me in the future.
It’s knitting season again! I know, it’s really hot now, but fall is just around the corner. Now is the time to start that new sweater so that it’s ready for when those crisp days set in. With fall comes school, which calls for back to school clothes. So let me ever-so-modestly suggest you knit your little ones an Atticus Pullover to keep them warm at the bus stop this year.
A Mother’s Side Note: I’m so excited that I can finally share these pictures of Atticus. He’s so freakin’ cute in them it kills me!
My boy likes a lot of colour, and would be quite happy to wear the whole rainbow all the time. This is my toned-down version of his vision, lots of colour but not so much that your eyes cross.
The sweater is very simple but the stripe pattern makes it lots of fun. The piece is designed with generous ease to fit over a shirt and to grow with the child.
The sample was knit in Cascade 220, a worsted-weight, 100% wool yarn. The pattern is written in 8 sizes, from 2 to 16, and fits with about 4″ of ease.
Thanks goes out again to Eleanor Dixon for Technical Editing, and to all my wonderful testers! I hope you all enjoy this new pattern as much as I do!
Woohoo! The first new pattern in a long time! More exclamation points!!! The process of designing and perfecting a sweater pattern is long. But it’s pretty satisfying in the end.
And here she is, Beverly…
The Beverly Beach shirt is knit in one piece as a rectangle, starting at the bottom front edge and ending with the bottom back edge. Garter stitch button bands are knit along both sides as you go, with buttonholes along the front and buttons along the back. The buttons join the front to the back, making this a seamless knit.
Sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL), fits bust sizes 28 (32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52)” [71 (81, 91, 102, 112, 122, 132) cm].
This top is meant to be loose fitting and is designed with a generous amount of ease. Sample shown is size M modeled on a 34”/86 cm bust. Please refer to the detailed schematic in the pattern to determine your appropriate size.
The release of this pattern also marks the debut of my new pattern layout. Check out the front page and tell me what you think!
Let’s start the new year off right with a new pattern release! This one has been a really long time coming so I’m over-the-moon thrilled to finally get it out there. Without further ado, let me introduce you to Chum’s Pullover…
Chum’s Pullover is a stylish yet casual men’s sweater featuring a triangular-shaped placket and chunky buttons. The placket adds a touch of interest and style to the piece that is manly enough for even the toughest of men. It is knit in bulky yarn, making relatively short work of a man-sized garment. The piece would look great with a pair of jeans, battered and old or crisp and sleek. It would also pair well with a pop of colour like red denim, if that’s the way you roll.
The sweater is worked in the round from the bottom to the underarm, then the left front, right front (including placket) and back are worked individually and joined at the shoulders with Kitchener stitch. The set-in sleeves are worked flat from the cuff up and then seamed and attached to the body of the sweater. The neck flap and high neckline are finished with a crocheted edge to give the piece a nice, clean look.
The sample shown in the picture is worn with zero ease, and that is how the pattern is written. For a little extra room, I recommend knitting the next size up.
From now until midnight MST on January 11th the pattern is available for 25% off.
New pattern day!
Despite my best efforts, my little girl is as girly as they come. When asked what she wanted on her hat the answer was definitively “Hearts, with a butterfly on top.” Well, my girl, ask and ye shall receive. I present you with the girliest hat ever.
This hat features an all-over heart design knit using stranded colorwork. The bottom of the hat is hemmed, providing a nice thick band to keep ears nice and toasty on cold days. There are also instructions for the optional butterfly to be sewn on after.
Sizes: Preemie (Newborn, Baby, Toddler, Child or Teen, Adult), fits 12 (14, 16, 18, 20, 22)” [30 (35, 40, 45, 50, 55) cm] circumference.
Another big thanks goes out to Eleanor Dixon for technical editing, and to the adorable Eloise (aka Doodie) for modeling!
From now until the end of Saturday, Dec. 7th, the pattern is available for 50% off!
And don’t forget, this is also eligible for all the Gift-A-Long fun!
