I loved making and knitting this little sweater.  Wynkyn is a light weight raglan baby sweater.  It is knit in one piece from the neck down to the waist.  The sleeves are then knit on double pointed needles.  The buttonholes are made on both bands while knitting the sweater and can be converted easily for a boy or girl baby.  When the knitting is completed, simply weave in the ends, sew the buttons on, and the sweater is finished.  The sweater is made with machine washable sock yarn or fingering weight baby yarn.  Or, make the sweater from an assortment of left over sock yarn.  The pattern includes four sizes:  newborn, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months.  The finished chest measurements are 17, 18, 20, and 21 1/2 inches.  The sweater uses sizes 2 and 3 needles and one 100 gram skein of yarn.   Because the sweater was made in self striping sock yarn, no two sweaters are the same.  The combinations are endless.  It will become your go to pattern to make a gift for a new baby.

Tulip Festival Throw

I am pleased to introduce my latest pattern, the Tulip Festival Throw. The Throw was made for one of my favorite spring time events, the Albany Tulip Festival. Each bed of tulips at the festival is full of beautiful blooms all open and bursting with beautiful color and all of the tulips are evenly spaced in their beds. I always want to take all of the tulips home with me. I hope you enjoy making the Throw. See you at the Tulip Festival.

Adult Bolero Sweater

adult bolero web

The Adult Bolero Sweater is a top down raglan bolero sweater.  It can be made in two lengths, a short style and a longer vest like style.  The short length is similar to the Baby Bolero Sweater.  The Adult Bolero Sweater can be finished with a button, a pin, or a shawl pin.  It’s made with a bulky weight yarn so it’s a quick knit.

Baby Bolero Sweater

I’m excited to introduce my newest pattern the Baby Bolero Sweater.  With our cold summer this year,  this is the perfect little addition to baby’s outfit.  Just enough to keep a little chill off of baby.  For more details find it in the baby section.

New Patterns

I’m very excited with my new Market Bag pattern.  We all have to begin doing things to help our environment.  It’s great to use to replace plastic bags that clog our land fills and take hundreds of years to degrade.  Make them for each of your children to carry their items to school and their activities.  Assign a color for each child or embroider their names on each bag.

The bag is made with worsted weight cotton.  I used three skeins of Sugar and Cream.
