Last Halloween I participated in a swap and made one of these sweaters for my swap partner. Bats are one of my favorite Halloween icons and I wanted this one to be mostly on the creepy side but maybe just a tad cute as well. This pattern is written and charted, so you can use whichever format you prefer!
Hannah Abbott is a not-super-well-developed character in the Harry Potter series, but she IS a Hufflepuff and thus seems worthy of inspiring this sweater. This sweater is empire style with a fitted bodice that fits Blythe perfectly. It has a two-color star pattern that is sweet without being overly fussy.
It’s another free pattern! Knit yourself a custom-length scarf for Blythe. This is great TV knitting – just cast on and let your mind focus on whatever you’re watching and this scarf will be complete before you know it. It’s seamless and simple! You can embellish it if you wish or leave it as knit for an elegant minimalist look.
Looking for a sleek hat for Blythe? This one will fit the bill! It’s designed with negative ease, meaning that it is slightly smaller than Blythe’s head until you stretch it just a little bit. Then it fits with perfection, offering a lovely snug fit. If you have a Blythe with shorter hair and want something to hold it in place after doing a hair treatment (so it will dry just as you wish), this will work very well! It’s also just super cute for any Blythe. Very simple to make with only two ends to weave in – no seaming!
Is your Blythe a little bit old-fashioned? Does she prefer the classic looks? This sweater dress is inspired by her aesthetic! Like almost all my patterns, it is knit all in one piece, the body flat and the sleeves in the round. There’s no seaming at all! You just weave in ends, sew on a snap in the back, and you’re done. It’s got a high neck that fits Blythe perfectly and a cabled bodice, which is ever-so-slightly high-waisted. Then there’s a ribbed waistline and an A-line skirt, giving the dress a time-honored look that just might be perfect with a petticoat underneath or a pair of high boots.
Smash the patriarchy!
Blythe can show her feminism loud and proud with this super cute hat that makes a statement. The March in Washington showed the power of this movement and it doesn’t have to stop there! Keep it going with Blythe! Also fun for cat lovers and cosplay!
I received the most awesome package from my swap partner Inga!
Thank you so much! 😀
