In 2019, thanks to my friend’s encouragement I allowed myself to dream my designs and slowly putting them on paper. Slowly because I have 2 small adorable daughters who are my main inspiration.
You can find all my patterns on Ravelry.
SOPHIE BABY BONNET
Sophie bonnet is sized for babies and toddlers. The intricate Japanese lace is easier to knit than it looks. Tubular Cast-on gives the edge around the face gentle ribbing and is stretchy enough to be comfortable for babies. I-cord ties that gently become lower edges give the bonnet an elegant finished look.
Sizes: newborn (3 months, 6 months, 12 months, 24 months)
GLASSBEADS CHILDREN CARDIGAN
The cardigan is knitted from top-down seamlessly, flat in rows. It has a stretchy neckline (due to tubular cast on), 9-10cm / 3-4’’ of positive ease and has plenty of simple stockinette knitting. Round yoke, hemline, and armbands have small attention-catching lines of bubbles that look like glass beads. They are made in contrast color, perfect for using up small amounts of sports weight leftovers in your stash. The body has fake seams for a better fit. The sleeves are knitted in the round, after the body. The button bands are picked up along the front sides and knit as last.
The pattern is written as “one-size one-page” instructions, giving initially all necessary information (yarn, measurements, stitch instructions, and abbreviations) and then main instructions for each size on one page.
Find it on Ravelry.
EOSTRE CHILDREN CARDIGAN
The cardigan is made top-down, starting with neckline ribbing. Short rows are used to make a longer back. Raglan increases are worked on front and back, while increases in sleeves are part of the lace stitch pattern. Cardigan has a classic fit with a 3-4 in / 7-10cm of positive ease for the body. Lace is continued through the entire sleeves. The button band is picked up last and knitted in the same broken ribbing as the neckline.
