I really need more clothes for my Middie Blythe, and I keep seeing other folks say the same thing. I designed this sweater while putting together a Blythe Swap that was Middie-specific and I’ve also made it for my own collection. It’s a simple cardigan with a little placket detail and ribbing at the hem and cuffs.
It’s summer and hot and definitely perfect weather for popsicles.
Popsicles are the classic summer treat, and this sweater is a tribute to their awesomeness!
A loose cowl that serves a decorative (rather than thermal) purpose is a great way to bring some warmth to an outfit. I’ve made this one as a gift several times and it has always been well received.
Everyone loves a Weasley sweater.
If you don’t have your very own Molly Weasley to send you one at xmas, use this pattern to make one for Blythe! Blythe’s initial B is front and center and you can make it in your own Hogwarts House Colors or whatever colors you like!
This is another super quick to make sweater for Blythe. I just can’t get over how quickly it goes with fingering weight yarn!
The latest Blythe swap theme was Blythe is a Bookworm. What a perfect theme for me! I had a lot in common with my partner, also a librarian, and also a fan of Harry Potter and lots of other reading things. Here’s a peek at what I sent:
I made some dresses and a sweater for Kate’s Blythes:
Doesn’t this sweater seem like something Molly Weasley would wear? #goals
And I made the tiniest cross stitch ever, on 28 count fabric.
Amiibo figure for scale (figure is 2″ high).
I’m still shaking my head at my hubris taking on a project on this tiny scale. I now own a magnifier, though, so that should be useful for future miniature crafts. And I’m so pleased with how it turned out, so it was super worth it.
AND, here’s what I received!
Thanks so much, Kate! This was such a fun swap!
Badass women will always be my fave, and I designed a sweater to give Blythe the ability to advertise her own eff yeah feminism (I would SO wear this if I was patient enough to make it in my size!).
Or cat dudes! Do you love cats? Or maybe even just the cute cats of the internet?
This sweater is so easy to knit up – it’s super quick with the fingering weight yarn and the stranded cat motif is charted to make working it a snap. It’s designed to fit Blythe but may fit other dolls with similar bodies.
Happy new month! I’ve got another freebie here, and it’s another thing that I found I needed so I made it. I like to have a glass of ice water with me at pretty much all times. I take allergy medicine that dries me out so I’m almost always thirsty and a refreshing glass of ice water is the best. The only problem is that in the warmer months, my glass of ice water sweats copiously, which either soaks my coaster (if it’s a porous one like a beer deckle) or temporarily adheres the coaster to the glass and it falls off after I picked up the glass (leading the sweated-off water to splash all over and the coaster to fall to the floor). Either way I am annoyed.
So, here we have the Cotton Coaster! It’s just as simple as it sounds – it’s a coaster made of cotton yarn. It is super absorbent and soaks up the glass sweat without getting the surface underneath it wet and it doesn’t stick to the glass.
It works well for other things like La Croix, of course, or a mixed drink or a glass of chocolate milk or whatever suits you. It’s astonishingly simple and quick to knit and takes a very small amount of yarn.
I like to use a handknit cloth for washing my face and I wanted to make one that would fit on my hand so the ends wouldn’t be flopping around while I’m using it. The result is the Scrubbie Square!
I’m pleased to offer this pattern as a freebie! It’s super easy and quick to knit and can be used for almost any cleaning purpose. It would work just as well as a way to dust your baseboards or wash your dishes or whatever else. It fits over an adult hand nicely with some wiggle room.
