new pattern! Charity Cardigan for Blythe

It’s a new pattern! A cozy, fuzzy cardigan for all the cold winter days we still have yet to face (though its lightness is such that it really works in any season).

This mohair/silk cardigan is worked on size 2 (2.75mm) double-pointed needles and is a snap to finish. The body and sleeves are both worked top down, and the shawl style placket is picked up and worked around the body. The pockets are picked up and seamed up the sides (but they’re very short, so hardly any seaming, really).

Gabrielle Cardigan for Blythe

Finally! A new pattern! I’ve been working on this one for a little while and it’s finally ready!

This is a cardigan sweater, worked using fingering weight yarn and size 2 needles. It has contrast rib rows for texture variation and has the feel of a cozy cardigan you’d want to pull on when the temp gets cold.

You can make it in one color or two.

Grab this pattern on Ravelry, Etsy, or LoveKnitting. (If you haven’t heard, Craftsy is now Bluprint and is not currently accepting additional patterns. Apologies!)


new pattern: Clove Dress for Petite Blythe

It’s another new pattern! This time a sweater dress for Petite Blythe (or LPS Blythe). It’s such a quick project, you may be able to make it in an hour or two! 

This dress is worked flat to start with, and then joined in the round partway through, so no fasteners are needed and there’s no seaming at all.

new free pattern: Leeport Baby Blanket

A colleague will be having a baby soon and I was really inspired by her photos of the nursery as they have been putting it together. They have a great color palette (not pastels, but not primary colors either), and I realized that I could make a blanket that would go perfectly AND do a thing I’ve been wanting to do, which is design a garter stitch blanket that uses 100% cotton yarn. It has so many things that make it ideal for a baby blanket: it’s so durable, it’s washable, it is unlikely to set off any allergies or irritate sensitive skin, and it’s light/not wooly. 

So, here’s the Leeport Blanket! You could make it with as many or as few stripes as you’d like, as many or as few colors as you’d like. It has a decorative edge but isn’t too fussy. Enjoy!
