I’ve designed a new knitting pattern for Blythe dolls, available in my Etsy store. The Coco Sweater is a fun short-sleeved sweater reminiscent of Pierrot the clown with its rolled ribbed collar and bobbles/pom poms down the front and also a little Coco Chanel with the contrasting trim.
The pattern is recommended for those with an intermediate level of knitting skills. The pattern uses bobbles and increases (M1L, M1R), though the bobbles can be replaced with store bought pom poms. It is knit in one piece from the top down and uses increases to shape. Under the sleeves are the only parts that need seaming.
Items made from the pattern can be sold.

Here’s a free pattern for your Blythe dolls.
Raspberry Ripple is a fun novelty hat that knits up quickly. The pink and white acrylic blend yarn (Lincraft’s Big Wool) reminded me of ice cream with raspberries – hence the name.

I could say that I was experimenting with the daisy stitch pattern and came across this interesting variation of my A Handsomely Tweedy Hat pattern. But that would be lying. The truth is I forgot which row I was on and repeated myself. The results are good though.
For best results use a really Earthy, tweedy yarn. Otherwise, stick with the original design. Continue reading “Variation on a theme”

Albert Park is also home to The Avenue bookstore, where I can lose myself for hours, and The Wool Baa yarn store, where I disappear again for a few more hours. On a recent visit I was seduced by a few balls of Debbie Bliss’s Donegal Luxury Tweed Aran yarn. Continue reading “A Handsomely Tweedy Hat”
