This is another super quick to make sweater for Blythe. I just can’t get over how quickly it goes with fingering weight yarn!
It’s a new month and I have a new free pattern to share!
Introducing the Linden Bag for Blythe! I wanted to create a really easy-to-make bag for Blythe that could be made to suit a number of different styles. As you can see from the photos here, I went with Mori style, and I made two bags from different yarns. You can see that the texture of each bag is slightly different, which is a result of the yarns being different. The green one is a fractionally thinner yarn made from alpaca, which is a little less fluffy than the cream yarn, which is merino. You can make the strap the thickness you like and as it also forms the sides of the bag, construction is super simple and finishing doesn’t take very long. When you’re done, you can embellish it in whatever way suits you. You could also make it smaller for Middie or super tiny for Petite.
It’s another free pattern! Knit yourself a custom-length scarf for Blythe. This is great TV knitting – just cast on and let your mind focus on whatever you’re watching and this scarf will be complete before you know it. It’s seamless and simple! You can embellish it if you wish or leave it as knit for an elegant minimalist look.
At the moment, I am super enamored of hats with bobbles. They are so cute and add a feeling of fun to a practical piece of clothing.
This is true for humans and for Blythe, of course. I especially love the look of a relatively giant bobble on a Blythe hat.
Of course there is no reason you can’t use a more medium-sized bobble.
Or a to-scale bobble that is more in line with traditional hats.
This hat is designed to have a generous fit, so it will easily fit even Blythes with big hair. I think it also gives the hat a luxurious feel, as does a large bobble. No skimping here!

The name Isobel is one of my faves. I don’t know many folks with this name, but it is so lovely and the associations I have with it are all positive in the best ways. For instance, who doesn’t adore Isobel Crawley? She’s a staunch feminist and marches to the beat of her own drum, and virtually always shows more empathy than anyone else around her. She holds her own with the Dowager Countess – a thing not everyone can manage – and doesn’t let herself be dissuaded by challenges.
Of course there is also a real life Isobel who is awesome, and that is Carrie Anne‘s amazing daughter. Who else could embody both Kiki and Wasp so effortlessly? She is also a young woman of strong opinions and a kindred picky eater spirit (don’t let the foods touch!) like myself. Her penchant for pink inspired one of my color choices for this sweater as well.
ANYWAY, all of this inspired me to design a Blythe sweater that is no-nonsense but elegant: introducing the Isobel Sweater for Blythe
This is a pullover sweater, meaning that it pulls over Blythe’s body – no way she is going to handle something being pulled over her head. The generous ribbed collar gives it plenty of room to stretch and fit nicely over her arms while putting it on. That collar is also luxurious and perfect for chilly autumn or winter days.
The body of the sweater is also nice and long, giving a perfect proportion to the large collar. It fits easily over a skirt or trousers, or even just over tights!
