New: Sprig hat! Plus, 2 more patterns previously available only in books.

New Pattern: Greenway Hat

New Pattern: Winter Wanderer

New Pattern: Winter Wanderer

I have a new pattern out! I knit my husband a new hat that’s just right for covering a hairless head. Full of texture with an enjoyable and easy to memorize pattern, The Winter Wanderer was fun for me to knit and even more fun to watch him wear. He wore it so much right away that I knit up a second one for him in another neutral. There are notes on adjusting the size or length in the pattern, and it’s 50% off when you use the code NEW at checkout on Ravelry. Not your cup of tea? Use the code NEW on other patterns in my shop too!
Handmade Holidays: Soy Candles

Handmade Holidays: Soy Candles

My family is doing a handmade gift swap this year, and while you’d assume I’d be knitting something, the lure of trying a new thing was too strong (I may throw in a handknit hat, if I have time). This summer I tried out cold-process…

New pattern: Little Hiker’s Pullover

New pattern: Little Hiker’s Pullover

A while back, I accidentally felted my 4-year-old daughter’s favorite sweater, her Little Hiker’s Cardigan. I know, I know, I should definitely know better. It had gotten balled up in a pile of muddy clothes, and being a distracted mom, I tossed them all in the washing machine without sorting through them. At the time V was wearing that cardi at least 3-4 times a week, so I felt terrible about it, and went on about it for a bit on instagram.

The very sweet Karin from The Periwinkle Sheep offered to send me some yarn to knit miss V a replacement, and after it arrived, V proclaimed that she wanted the same sweater, but the kind you pullover your head, and she didn’t want any pockets. So, here it is, a pattern for V’s new sweater, the Little Hiker’s Pullover.

You can use the code NEW at checkout for 50% off until Christmas, and you can use that code on these patterns too.

This sweater is knit from the top down with round yoke and raglan shaping. The yarn is discontinued, but any bulky/chunky yarn with a recommended gauge of 3 sts an inch will do. There are yardage estimates for all of the sizes (Children’s 2-12). I recommend using Malabrigo Chunky for a hand-dyed look, or Quince and Co Puffin, for a beautiful solid. Either way, this will fly off the needles.

Bring on Fall: Agnes Cardigan

Bring on Fall: Agnes Cardigan

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 is available here: Agnes

 

So, I finally knit what I had considered for years, a cardigan version. It features the similar construction, still has those pockets, with just a bit more length in the body. This yarn is so warm that this piece makes a great outerwear layer on a chilly fall day. The Agnes Cardigan is now on Ravelry and is $2 off (no code needed) until 9/15: Agnes Cardigan
