A New Knitting Pattern

Hi all.  I hope this new week is starting out great for you.  Sorry it took me so long to get this pattern published, but it’s ready for your knitting pleasure now!

This pattern is the first for Patsy and Ann Estelle.  It is a light weight cropped cardigan knit with lace yarn.  I used Knit Picks Aloft, a mohair/silk blend.  The stitches are tiny, but the fuzziness of the yarn hides stitch imperfections.  I actually enjoy knitting with lace yarn over heavier yarn.  It creates less hand strain because it is so light weight, but yes, it is harder to see.

Thanks for stopping by tonight.  Wishing you all a great week! ❤

NEWS! My First Knitting Pattern is Ready!

Who is it for?  Hmm…  okay, I’ll finally tell.  You’ve all waited long enough.  Sorry for the delay.  I think I set a record for the number of edits in a pattern.

I read ALL of my blog, Facebook, and email comments, and the #1 request was for a Little Darlings pattern, so that is who got the first pattern.  It is a very simple sweater pattern which I titled “Classic Cardigan”.  It is knit with fingering weight wool which is not too fine; in fact it’s just right for a wooly fall sweater.  I have included instructions for three sleeve lengths too.

I think this pattern is a good starting point for all of you who know how to knit, but are still new to the craft.  (Those of you who are more advanced probably won’t have any problems skipping over the extra instructions.)  If you know how to knit, I believe you can follow my pattern.  Any stitches that you aren’t familiar with can be found on You Tube.

This pattern is the perfect “canvas” for embroidery and applique.  I included my Ten Tips for Embroidery on Hand Knits along with some photos for inspiration too.

Pattern is available as a pdf digital pattern; you’ll need a pdf reader application installed on your computer.  If you go to my website click on the “Shop Patterns” tab and keep clicking until you get to this pattern.  I have the navigation set up for more patterns and for more dolls (high hopes, I know . . .), so you’ll need to complete a few clicks.

Once you complete your Paypal payment, I will send the pattern as an attachment to your email address.  Please make sure I have your correct email for sending the pattern to. There are no shipping charges and the pattern can be sent anywhere as long as you have an email address.

Please let me know of any problems.  Like anything new, I expect a glitch or two.  I am sorry in advance for any frustration these may cause you.

Bye for now!
