A 2-in-1 Easy Swaddling Blanket

28 Feb

This pattern is inspired by a special swaddling blanket I used when my sons were babies. I was always bad at using standard blankets for swaddling, so they really helped!

It can be used as a swaddling blanket and, later when the baby doesn’t get swaddled anymore as an independent sleeping bag

I’m about to write the pattern and have it tested.

More progress, I’m happy about how this is turning out. I still have quite a bit of knitting to do, but here you can start to see what it’ll look like.

Some Progress

I’m working hard on my newest baby design, the pattern is really evolving as I’m knitting it, so I won’t divulge too much, just that it will be a 2-in-1 item…

Back to Designing for Babies

After a short break from baby designing with my capelet, I’m back to babies! Here is a preview of what I’m working on, the yarn is Bernat Baby Jacquards, “I’m a big boy” colourway

Agate Capelet is up for Testing

19 Feb

A few pictures of my latest design, a capelet. It is named after the stone agate. A geologist pointed out to me that it looked like an agate, so Agate it had to be! It is now up for testing, check here if you are interested and reply in the thread.

It is made out of two different colourways of sock yarn. I designed it specifically with the Zauberball in mind, but any sock yarn with long colour repeats will have the same effect. Of course, you can also use two plain colours.

Finished Knitting New Pattern

It’s blocking right now, I will post more pictures once it’s dry. Stay tuned…
