Mosaiko is a cute pair of 2-colour baby slipper socks, knit in sport weight yarn to keep baby’s feet nice and toastie. It uses such little amounts of yarn that it is a great way to use up leftovers in a fun and useful way.
They do not require complicated colour work as only one colour is ever worked per round.

Mosaiko is my latest design, a pair of slipper socks for babies in two colours. It’s being tested right now and should be released soon. Unfortunately I don’t have a cute baby to model them!
My easy swaddler is now published. Thanks to one of my testers, I even have a picture “in action” 🙂
When my boys were babies, I tried using swaddling blankets, but they just wouldn’t stay on. So, I bought a couple of specially shaped swaddling blankets, which inspired me to design this pattern. The idea of the pattern is to be able to use the item when the baby doesn’t need swaddling anymore. So, it’s in two pieces; one independent sleeping bag, onto which the “wings” attach to create an easy swaddling blanket.
Pattern costs $4.00
More details on the pattern are available on Ravelry:
Pattern in 1 size: Newborn to approximately 6 months
I am now looking for testers for this pattern. If interested, please check and reply here.
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.
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…
