Posts Tagged ‘knitting pattern’

As we head further into Autumn, and we need to pull out some warmer clothing, it is increasingly apparent that my girls need some knitty love from their Mum, and I think this needs to be in the form of a shrug.

Shrugs are such versatile little garments, and can be worn over a number of different tops and dresses: long-sleeved; short-sleeved; sleeveless; strapless etc. Shrugs can be lightweight and pretty, or thicker for warmth….and still pretty 😉 This pattern, Puffy Sleeved Shrug (which happens to be my own design), is somewhere in between.

I think this will be a fantastic addition to the girls’ wardrobes, as it adds a wonderfully girly touch to an outfit with its puffed sleeves. I think it will look great over a top and teamed with a skirt, leggings, and some funky boots.

The hardest thing will be deciding on yarn and colour I think! Hopefully all these examples below will provide some inspiration. These were all created by a bunch of wonderfully talented ladies during the testing phase of my pattern, and are all absolutely beautiful xx

What do you think will make a great addition to a little girls’ wardrobe this Autumn/Winter?

Ahhh, nothing feels better than starting from scratch….and that is exactly what I am doing with this blog!
My old blog was getting a bit tired, and I was really not that into it, so it was neglected.
Recently my creative mojo returned, and I have been enjoying my knitting and dyeing again. So much so that I designed a pattern, and have released it on Ravlery.
It is called “Puffy Sleeved Shrug”, and, well, the name says it all really.
This also prompted me to get back into blogging, so that I can showcase my work.
This space will now be the focus of my creative ventures, be it knitting, dyeing, baking etc, and will also act as a store for items I wish to sell, in order to continue funding my hobbies.
Watch this space 🙂
