Lulu Hat for Blythe

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!

Sandy’s the name, if you please

Sandy Dress for Blythe

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.

sweet Narcissa

Sometimes you want to knit with larger needles but still be able to make something for a small doll. In this case, it’s for Middie Blythe with easy-on-the-hands size 7 (4.5mm) needles using worsted weight yarn – not tiny at all! Yet you still get a very small sweater out of it that fits Middie perfectly.

free pattern! Dana Cloth

Huzzah! It’s another free pattern!

Dana Cloth

This one was inspired by a friend of mine who is getting hitched soon. I always like to make wash/dish cloths because I find them so handy myself. You can use them for just about anything, they’re a snap to launder, and I think it’s nice to have a bunch on hand for whenever a need arises. I use them for washing my face, scrubbing dishes, dusting, and cleaning a ton of other things around the house. They make great gifts – or treats for yourself!

Augusta – free pattern!

It’s finally starting to feel like autumn – my favorite season! I was super excited to receive this gorgeous yarn in the mail from Laughing Hens – it’s the perfect fall color and is sooo soft and cozy.

Augusta Cowl by AnneArchy

I like to wear a cowl to work during autumn and winter. A lot of cowls are really big and more appropriate for outside wear, so I wanted to make one that works well indoors. This one is cozy and will keep your neck warm, but isn’t so bulky that it feels weird or too hot inside. It’s also stretchy and will easily fit over your hair without messing it up. 🙂

Thanks again to Laughing Hens for sharing this great yarn with me!

Aurora

Professor Aurora Sinistra is one of the lesser-known members of faculty at Hogwarts. She appears a few times in passing but does not take a super active role. One of the things we know about her, though, is that she teaches astronomy in the tallest tower at Hogwarts, which led me to believe that she would be a fan of a big, cozy cardigan. It must get chilly on top of that tower!

This cardigan is so big and cozy that it might also be used as a coat! Especially if you use a looser-knitting yarn like the Classic Elite Yarns Bam Boo that I used to make the blue one pictured here.

Lovely Rita

More dreams of autumn happening here…

Rita Sweater for Blythe by AnneArchy

How cozy is this sweater?! SO COZY. I would love to wear this one myself. Add a pair of fun leggings and that might just be my autumn uniform. The bonus of this pattern is that, being for Blythe rather than a human, it only takes a matter of minutes to knit it up! The worsted weight yarn and larger needles means that it is a breeze and I am all about instant gratification.

Emmeline Sweater for Blythe by AnneArchy

Stripes! I have made many knit sweaters with horizontal stripes, but not many (any?) with vertical stripes. Realizing something like this is sort of like a challenge to me – haven’t done a thing yet? Time to figure out how to do it! It was not difficult and I actually liked working with two yarns alternating closely like this. For me, it’s easier to do this kind of close color switching than it is to do it over larger spans of stitches – I don’t tend to work too tightly, which I sometimes can with other stranded knitting.
