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.

Pattern Release: Little Flower

Wow! Has it really been a month since I last posted. That is so bad of me, I know. But, I have an excuse. Well, I have several actually…I’ve been really, really busy. Not just with designing things, but personally. May has been the month of doctor appointments, orthodontist appointments, a birthday to prepare for(# 2 this weekend) and a graduation(next weekend)! Yes, I have on son turning 2 and one graduating high school! Last week, I also got hit with what I call the plague. Really, I got a cold that won’t go away!!! But, enough of my sad, sad excuses. I have a new pattern to show you!

Released just today, I give to you, Little Flower.

This is a little girl’s shrug knit up in a dk weight cotton blend. Other fibers would also work well.

As you can see, two lace panels run along the front panels and there are two options for sleeves, ruffled and non-ruffled.

This sweet little shrug is perfect to set off any spring or summer outfit.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed this post. I promise to post more often! I have more designs coming your way. There are another 6 in some stage of development. Three are very very close to publishing. So, check back often!
