Two new vest patterns available

The knitting patterns for two of my new lovely, timeless, vintage style vest patterns are now available!

First is the Everything Crossed Vest pattern.

Everything Crossed Vest

We’re hoping for good luck for the future and have “Everything Crossed”!

A fitted, slip stitch, hip bone length vest with a V neck and some shaping from waist to bust, in pure wool, using Cascade 220 Heathers yarn.

This stitch pattern makes a lovely thick warm fabric.

This is my version of vintage style, with increasing happening from the waist to the bust.

In an earthy tone, this makes a great wardrobe staple, or go for a more eye-catching colour and make it a feature piece.

Size inclusive, this is available for sizes 29 inch to 57 inch bust.

Uses 3 (4, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7) skeins of 220 yards each.

Keep everything crossed with me, and knit the Everything Crossed Vest.

It’s available to buy for $6.80 USD.

The next and most recent pattern is the Yarra Road Vest.

Yarra Road Vest

I have the absolute luck to be able to use the gorgeous Yarra Road to avoid school traffic on my way to work, not only avoiding horrible traffic jams, but also getting a calming, beautiful rural drive. Winter drives along this road have been the inspiration for the Yarra Road Vest.

A fitted, slip stitch rib, hip bone length vest with a V neck and some shaping from waist to bust, in a cotton blend, the beautifully soft Juniper Moon Farm Cumulus. Cabling completes the slip stitch pattern on every 6th row.

Size inclusive, this is available in 8 sizes from 29 inch to 57 inch bust.

  • Grey 3 (3, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6) skeins
  • Pearl 1 (1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2) skeins
  • Blue 1 (1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2) skeins

This is my version of vintage style, with increasing happening from the waist to the bust.

Mine is grey clouds in amongst the white in a blue sky. Or go for something really bright!

The Humanise Throw Rug, for when you’re feeling not quite human

I have a new knitting pattern available! It’s for my new lovely, comforting Humanise Throw Rug  classically styled, in a timeless cables and lace stitch pattern.

After a hectic day of too much to do, and being pulled in multiple directions, do you feel not quite human? Snuggle under the Humanise Throw Rug to humanise yourself again.

The simple, but effective stitch pattern is therapeutic to knit, and lovely to rest under.

It’s done in a classic cables and lace style, and is worked flat, in one piece for faster knitting and minimal finishing.  I’ve worked it in FibraNatura Cottonwood,  which comes in a massive array of colours. I’ve chosen beige, which is great for matching with other home decor, but any colour which complements or contrasts with your decor would work.  The throw rug finished size is 102cm (40 in) x 77cm (30.5 in).

A new lovely timeless knitting pattern

_MG_0741

The West-Northwest Pullover can now been seen on the Pullovers and Cardigans page.

It was one of those designs where I was wondering, “Am I crazy to be doing this?”.  For some reason, these always end up to be my favourites.  It’s worked in a 4ply/Fingering yarn and covered in small rib, cables and twist stitches, hence my doubts about my own state of mind.  And of course a collar, which is so simple but transforms it to another level.  The outcome is so worth it.  I love the vintage look that I ended up with!
