Another coat, this time with a more a-line shape and some strategically placed rows of garter stitch to emphasize the princess style. It’s worked all in one piece – the body worked flat and the sleeves picked up and worked in the round – and requires NO SEAMING (and everyone rejoices!).
It’s been ages since I’ve made time to update things over here. Hopefully I can get back in the swing. I’ve also been slacking at making time for pattern publishing – I’ve still been drafting and testing knitting patterns, but haven’t made time to write them up. Again, here’s to getting back into it.
This is a cute little dress for Blythe that is so quick to knit up. It’s super satisfying and uses fingering weight yarn, so it isn’t quite as fiddly for those who dislike using small needles.
It starts out worked flat, but then is joined in the round for most of the bodice, which allows for a relatively shapely fit. You can consider it complete as is, or add some embellishment.
In other news, this girl finally has a name: Sage.
Got some bits of worsted weight yarn hanging around and nothing to do with such small amounts? Grab a set of size 7 (4.5mm) double-pointed needles and get to work, because you’ll soon have a sweet striped hat for Blythe (seriously, this hat will take you so little time to knit that you will hardly believe it).
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!
As much as I love not spending time dealing with snow during the warmer months in Michigan, sometimes I do love thinking about cold snowy days when it’s 80F+ and it’s too humid to feel cozy. That inspired this Big Love Sweater for Blythe, which has a cozy ribbed turtleneck and is slightly oversized for getting that snug as a bug in a rug feeling.
