Stripes are awesome, and I think they work really well on Blythe. This hat is a great way to show off some stripes! It’s a generously sized toque, so it will stay on well even if your Blythe has big hair (you know how some hats will sort of try to spring off the top of Blythe’s head? This one won’t do that, even on Ash, my mohair reroot whose locks are boisterous). Add a bobble if you wish, or leave it as a plain cap.
I’ve been wanting to create more garments for Blythe using mohair/silk yarn, and I’ve been wanting to make up a pattern for a romper, so here’s both of those things in one!
This romper features a shaped bodice, cap sleeves, and puffy shorts. It is worked flat and in the round on size 2 (2.75mm) double-pointed needles using one color of lace weight mohair/silk yarn. It is also seamless! It’s knit top down and all in one piece. There is no finishing beyond weaving in the ends. It’s super quick and easy!
Are your ears cold? If you live in my neck of the woods, they probably are. You may even be spending a bunch of time outside shoveling snow and your ears are REALLY cold, but if you put a hat on, your head gets too warm because you’re doing physical labor. Perfect solution: the Murry Headband. It’s warm and cozy for your tender ears, but won’t mess with your hairdo or make you overheat.
Winter in my neck of the woods lasts awhile, and it’s nice to have a few easy hats to hand that you can just grab and put on without thinking about it. I also like a hat that doesn’t have a visual front, so that as I go in and out of buildings throughout the day, I can remove it and put it back on without worrying that I have it on crooked. This hat, Myriad, is perfect for that! It’s stretchy, so it’ll fit over your hair without giving you hat head, and it’s even all the way around, so there’s no wrong way to wear it.
Introducing the Ginny Scarf! It’s a pattern that has a right side, but the wrong side is also attractive, and it’s warm but not heavy. The pattern calls for fingering weight yarn, but you could really make it in just about any weight, so if you want a puffier worsted or bulky weight scarf, just size up the needle along with the yarn and it’ll work! I made this one from Knit Picks Stroll Gradient in Mood Ring (this colorway is actually on sale right now!) – it’s a superwash wool/nylon blend that is super soft and can be machine washed and dried in the dryer, so it’s very easy to care for. You can wear it as an outdoor scarf or an indoor accent to your outfit (it may be a bit on the warm side for this, but many workplaces are not very toasty in the cold months, so maybe not!), however it works best for you.
It’s another hat! This time named for Hepzibah Smith, who was a Hufflepuff (yay!) but allowed herself to be charmed by Tom Riddle (boo!). It’s got a rib pattern going from brim to crown, and you can add a bobble or not, depending on your taste.
Sometimes you want a relatively simple hat that just fits really well. This is that hat for Blythe! It’s a good fit, but not a tight one – it works really well for traveling because it keeps Blythe’s hair in place without leaving hat head when you take it off. It’s also stylish and ready for winter activities!
Another month, another free pattern! This is another one of my favorites for working while I’m doing other things. It’s a snap to memorize and you can freely watch media without missing the subtitles, pay attention to a speaker, or interact with other humans if that’s your thing.
Looking for a cute cat hat for cosplay or everyday? Here you go! (Could also be a different animal if you wish!) Knit with worsted weight yarn, this hat is quick to knit and the ears are picked up, so there’s no seaming! It’s easy and you could make one in each of your favorite colors. Pattern includes three adult sizes, the smallest of which will work for many kids and most teens.
I designed this sweater as a crop top perfect for layering or showing off a lovely skirt. It has short sleeves and is just the right length to hit Blythe just at the waist. It’s also quite easy to make!
