Teddy Sweater KAL

I am so excited to bring this sweater to you. I have had this idea for a while, but only recently had time to fit it into my schedule. I wished I had done it sooner as it has immediately become one of my favorites.  Teddy Sweater is a unisex top down raglan pullover worked up at a DK weight with the added cuteness of a teddy bear face on the front “kangeroo” pocket. The pattern size runs from 3months to size 6.

Teddy Sweater is knit up in Malabrigo Arroyo, which creates a beautiful fabric at DK gauge. A perfect transitional garment for your little one.

Now, to celebrate how excited I am about this pattern, I decided to do a KAL in my group on Ravelry. The pattern is up for sale, but the KAL will begin on Monday to give everyone a chance to enjoy the holida weekend and get yarn together. The KAL will run through May 6th.

A funny little story about this pattern. When I initially sketched and swatched this, my 5 year old son was not even the least bit interested. So, I knit the sample in another size and moved on. When he saw it finished, he told me he wanted one, now. He wanted it red, with a black bear pocket. So, I will be knitting his during the KAL…not that I will finish as I have about 20 things on the needles, but I will try!  I hope you will stop by and knit with us. It should be fun. There will be some random pattern giveaways and a few prizes for participants, too.

Back with a Pattern!

I am back and I have something to show you! I know, I know I am hardly ever posting. I try, I really do.  I have a reason. I have been super super busy. I have a baby and the older kids are out of school. Now, you think they would help more right? Nahh. They make more messes and really don’t help that much. Also, I have been busy doing this.

It’s my new pattern released by me on Ravelry and by Knit Picks as a part of their Independent  Designers Program. It uses Felici Sport Sock yarn for the striped section and Stroll Sport sock yarn for the solid black section.  This is a unisex pattern and there are tons of possibilities and combinations as far as color goes.

It’s very lightweight for spring and summer and can be layered with a cute T-shirt for colder temps.

Well, there you go. That’s what I have been busy with. I have another pattern that will be ready in a couple weeks too. I also have another pattern release slated tentatively for sometime in July. I am going to say mid to late July. They are both baby items. The one coming out next will be a “girl” pattern though. So keep checking back it is super cute!
