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.
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.
But happily, there are no White Walkers to be found here, only a cute Blythe sweater pattern! In my quest to do more intarsia, I designed this snowflake pattern. It’s simple and seasonal and can be knit up in any color combo you choose. The pattern includes both long and short sleeves, so it’s really customizable to whatever look you like!
Did you have a sweater like this in the 80s? I know I had at least one and I remember it being super cozy. I have been wanting to practice my colorwork skills lately and I’ve been inspired to create Blythe patterns based on human garments. I think this one is a success!
This cute swing style sweater is a light, airy, fun top for Blythe. It features a colorwork pattern on the front and both sides of the back. This chart is small and is a great way to start out with colorwork. The cropped but not too short style is great for Blythe – it’s short enough to feel the swing shape but not so short as to show her midriff.
It may be the thick of August (and with the humidity we’ve been having, it certainly feels thick!) but I am already thinking ahead to Halloween and the spooky breezes of fall. And what goes hand in hand with spooky breezes? Monsters, of course!
Bingeing Stranger Things certainly didn’t do anything to dissuade me, and the July Blythe Swap theme being Marvelous Monsters clinched it. However, rather than knitting slimy tentacles, I opted for a monster that is more reminiscent of a jack-o-lantern than something from Alien. Feel free to add your own slime if you’re so inclined!
Time is always a precious resource, and sometimes you want to knit a project without having to sacrifice a lot of it. This is a perfect project for those occasions!
Made with worsted weight yarn, this sweater gives the look of the really chunky knits that have been so trendy lately on a scale that works for Blythe. The pattern includes both short and long sleeves, and is designed reverse cardigan style (and so could be worn reversed for a cardigan look).
Awhile back I wanted to make a hat for a friend who was going through a bit of a rough time. I looked to the internet, as you do, for inspiration and came up with licorice, which represents strength, gives a feeling of satisfaction, and is an anti-inflammatory. I also used multiples of 4, as four is reputed to provide a solid foundation, good support, reliability, commitment, patience, strength of spirit, and intuition.
This hat will also be comforting and warm based purely on the fact that it is made from worsted yarn at a gauge that provides coziness.
No pudding right at the moment, but instead we have this lovely Luna Hat, inspired by Luna Lovegood.
I wanted to make something that was simple but with a subtle style. This hat has a ribbed brim and uses rapid decreases to form an eye-catching shape at the crown. The pattern is available in three adult sizes, so a range of adult head sizes is included. This just feels to me like the kind of hat Luna would wear – it’s cozy and comfortable and would accompany her unusual jewelry nicely.
In this case, I don’t mind at all. Here’s another pattern as requested by an awesome knitter! She asked me if I could do a strappy sundress – here it is!
I’m really pleased with the fit of this sundress. The straps are exactly the right size for Middie’s shoulders and the dress fits snugly without being too tight. The lace of the skirt is airy and light, perfect for a sundress.
