FO Friday: Blythe Sweaters galore!

Over the holiday break, I finally made time to write up a bunch of Blythe sweater patterns that I’ve had drafted for quite some time. Hooray!

Violet Sweater for Blythe

This is the Violet Sweater. It has a wide cable down the front and features my trademark slightly-too-long sleeves.


Daisy Sweater for Blythe

Here we have the Daisy Sweater (are you sensing a theme in the names yet?). This one has a busier cable and I made this one from a slightly different yarn (it’s an alpaca/silk blend and the stitches are slightly less defined). I’ll likely make it again soon in a fiber that shows more definition (this stuff is SO SOFT, though – had I the patience I’d totally make one for myself out of it).


Anna Sweater for Blythe

Now the Anna Sweater (if you’re a fan of a certain TV show, you should be catching on to the name theme now). This one has another, slightly different cable pattern. I really love the colorway of this yarn.


Edith Sweater for Blythe

Here is the Edith Sweater (you’ve got it, right?). This sweater is a bit fancier than other Printed Hoodies i made – it has a double cable on what’s shown above as the front, but it is actually reversible to be worn cardi-style and has cables on either side of the cardigan opening as well. It also has extra-long sleeves, which I like with the fitted cardigan look.


Mary Sweater for Blythe

The Mary Sweater. This is my first design for a pullover sweater for Blythe. As she has such a huge head, it pulls over her body instead, but still counts as a pullover. This is another sweater I’d totally wear if I made it for myself.


Edna Sweater for Blythe

And the Edna Sweater (REVEAL if you didn’t get it). Another pullover, but shorter, more fitted, and less oversized.

I’m really pleased with how these have turned out! I have a bunch more drafty patterns for different styles, but I’m just working my way through them as I make time. Blythe folks, what types of sweaters (or other clothing) would you like to see?


AUSTENtatious Crochet

AUSTENtatious Crochet I don’t really crochet (I can do an edge here or there, but that’s about it), but this book is so lovely! Since Downton Abbey has renewed my interest in historical fiction, I was drawn to admire all the delicate, romantic creations included here. Austen fans, don’t miss this one! My post at CPL has more about this book.
