Finished Object – In the Forest of the Night Cardi(s)

I fell in love with the “In the Forest of the Night Cardigan” by Desamour Designs and decided that it would be my birthday present to myself. And by that I mean I bought myself the pattern and yarn for my birthday and made the sweater several months later.

I made size medium and used a little over 3 skeins of Knit Picks CotLin Reflections in the color Stratus. (Unfortunately, this yarn is being discontinued.) I added a few extra rows to the top of the shoulders to make it a little longer, and give a bit longer armhole.

I had most of a skein of the yarn left, so I improvised a quick kerchief to go along with it.

My mom saw mine and requested one for herself, so as soon as she got me the yarn I got started on this version:

This one is size XL and used slightly over 9 balls of Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK in Pansy Purple.

Once again, I had most of a ball left at the end, but this time I adapted the stitch pattern of the cardigan into a hat.

Pattern Release: Fence Hopper Ankle Socks

It’s been a long time coming, but they are finally here. Meet the Fence Hopper Ankle Socks:

The pattern of raised stitches is created by a simple 1/1 cable that doesn’t even require a cable needle. Once I had the repeats down, I was even able to work on these while walking.

This particular pair is made in Valley Yarns Huntington by WEBS Yarn, but I also made the original prototypes out of Hawthorn by Knit Picks. Really any fingering weight sock yarn will work.

You can find your copy in my Ko-Fi Shop, in my Ribblr shop (where it is 50% off until June 11), or on LoveCrafts.

Surface Pattern Design – New Redbubble Collections

It’s been a while since I sat down and drew some repeating surface patterns, so I went back to the Spoonflower Design Challenges to get some inspiration.

While these patterns aren’t available to vote for just yet (I’ll post an update to my feed here and on my Instagram story with the link when it is available), I have added them to Redbubble.

They are in three separate collections, because I wanted to have both the single flower and the repeating pattern with the flower available on certain products.

You can find the single flower herethe flower pattern here, and the square pattern here. You can also find any of my previous patterns and some photography on many products over there. 

Last but not least, you can find each of these designs as free downloadable device backgrounds in the Backgrounds album in my gallery on Ko-Fi, sized for phones, computers, and iPads/tablets.
