I am pleased to announce that I have some new patterns which I am able to knit for sale. The first of these is "In Threes: A Baby Cardigan" by Kelly Herdrich. Kelly has a blog called Kelly without a net and the pattern can also be found on Ravelry here.
Contrary to it's name, In Threes is not just for babies, it is available in sizes from 0-6 months right up to 4/5T or chest sizes 17 - 24 inches, although because it is designed with positive ease (ie designed to be bigger than the chest measurement of the child) it would fit slightly older children too.
The above photos show my daughter Melissa wearing the In Threes cardigan I knitted her. It is knitted in 100Purewool Santino with dark purple trim. While this cardigan looks great knitted in variegated yarn like above, it looks equally as stunning knitted in a solid colourway too.
The next pattern is part of the Back to the Sea collection from Elena Nodel, you may remember the Sea Princess Pattern, well Sea Beanie is a beanie designed to match the Sea Princess.
I have mentioned 100Purewool a number of times in this post. 100Purewool comes from Uruguay and is a very soft worsted weight wool. I have decided to use this wool for custom knitting as an option to the customer, although being worsted weight wool it is thicker than 8ply and may not be suitable for all patterns. This wool can be sourced for not much more than some of the other not so luxurious yarns that I use, but there is a downside. Unless I already have the colour and quantity of wool required, it does take up to six weeks to be shipped here.
Here are some examples of the beautiful colourways that are available...
