In 2011, I knit what would become a favorite sweater of mine. Agnes, in cozy Quince and Co Puffin is a classic top-down raglan pullover with a little something extra…contrast-lined pockets! At 3 sts an inch, it flies off the needles. The original Agnes pattern […]
I’ve been a neglectful blogger, and 4 new patterns have come out since we last spoke! I’ve been busy trying to balance my time between this work that I need to do, and enjoying some time with my 4 and 6 year old daughters, as they’ll both be in school very soon.
These patterns, and the others in my Ravelry store, are 40% off until August 3rd, no code required. Eligible patterns are here.
Bean Cardigan is a top-down, round-yoke cardigan, sized from 6-12m to a child’s size 12. It uses 2-4 skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in “Conference Call”
Finally, also in Ramble, the Windham Hat uses just knits and purls for lots of texture in a fun geometric pattern.
I have a few more patterns coming out this month, plus some new tutorials in the works. Check back soon! Thanks for being here!
I’ve released another new hat pattern! Good Tidings is another adult-sized colorwork hat knit in 2 colors of Malabrigo Rios. You can take 50% off this pattern, and any other in my Ravelry store, by using the code NEW at checkout. This code will work until the end of December. All eligible patterns are here: Melissa LaBarre’s Ravelry store

My little family of 4 has been passing around a cold this week, and we’ve been glued to the couch and our hot water bottles. I’ve been all about the instant-gratification knitting, and WEBS’ Valley Yarns Superwash Super Bulky is a new favorite, knitting up at 2.5 stitches an inch. Even this mama, with almost no free time, was able to whip up 2 hats in just a few days. I finished them with huge fluffy poms, which I used to be terrible at making, thanks to these great pom pom makers that I read about on another blog.
These patterns, along with all accessory patterns in my Ravelry store, are 35% off until Christmas, no code needed.
