I now have 4 patterns live on Ravelry! So far all for dolls, but don’t worry, I have a child’s poncho/cowl in the works and an adult cowl stewing. I’ve got a current goal of 2 patterns/month.
I freaking love this picture. The light from our living room windows is amazing.
The Aspen Street Sweater & Aspen Street Legwarmers are my first paid patterns. I kind of love the sweater on and am debating if it would be worth the investment in yarn to make one for me.
I had a lot of fun coming up with a “photoshoot” for the Presidio Doll Poncho. The chickens were mostly obliging and “Maddy” was very brave posing with them 😉
And the Ribbed Doll Sweater is, I think, a great pairing of yarn with a simple stitch.
Dolls have been a great start since their apparel is small enough for me to work up a couple samples on my own before I call for testers. I’m having a good time with this!
I took some time away from the blog for some summer revelry and relaxation. And then I decided to try something new! I’m designing. For dolls. At least for now. The dolls are one size, my kids can get involved, and the projects are quick enough that I can knit a couple samples.
My first pattern, Ribbed Doll Sweater, is live on Ravelry!
I’m using knitonepugtwo designs for my shop name. I realize doll sweaters have a limited audience, but they’re a great intro to sweaters and a learning experience on construction.
This pattern was only tested by me. But I’ve got another in the works with a tester. And I’m hoping to release two at the beginning of September! And I’m working on something for both a child and their doll!
I’m also trying to add helpful tips to my designs, things a beginning knitter might not think about. Like using VERY different types of markers when knitting lace.
I’m also using links in the pattern, should you download it as a pdf, so it’s easy to understand terms like “back join.”
Let me know if you’ve taken a look at my pattern or are interested in test knitting!
