Happy Tuesday everyone!
So we are coming to the end of summer, at least here in the UK anyway, and I have been frantically trying to update all my summery patterns before September brings the beautiful Autumn. Yesterday I finally released the last warm weather garment pattern in my catalogue, Effervescence.
I love this top. It’s the last garment I designed before I took a step back due to being pregnant with Rowan. If you followed my other blog you will already know the story of how I thought I’d written a great pattern, only for the magazine to contact me and tell me it was riddled with mistakes. When I read it over it made no sense at all and I realised my baby brain had taken full effect! I had to rewrite the entire thing with the help of the tech editor. It was utterly awful and very embarrassing too! But I know we ended up with a great pattern.
This top is knitted in the round, bottom up, until the armholes, where it is separated for the top sections. It is worked in DK yarn on 4mm circular needles and comes in a range of sizes from 8 to 22 (UK dress size).
But why stop at just one pattern for half price when you could have two!
Fauna is also half price until August 31st midnight BST!
Fauna is an intricate lace work top, worked in the round from bottom up and split into two sections after the armholes. Worked in DK on 3.25mm and 4mm needles, Fauna comes in sizes 6-8, (10-12, 14-16, 18-20, 22-24) UK dress size.
I don’t have a story to tell you about this one. I’m going to be honest… I don’t remember designing it at all! I’m pretty sure I did since I have all the old sketches and submission sheets! But I have no memory of this one, which makes me a little sad in a way.
That’s all from me today. I will be back soon with more of the baby stuff and some insights into knitting design etc. It’s just taking me a while to get everything up to date for you guys, what with school holidays etc!
Until next time!
