Cable Fantasy Baby Blanket

5.2.16
Today I'd like to share my first project for 2016 - Cable Fantasy Baby Blanket. It is also my very first design for my newborn daughter Veronica! I can't believe I'm a mum of two little girls now!


Because my newborn daughter is not ready yet for modeling her new blanket by herself my older princess is happy to help me with the pictures :).


So this super cozy blanket is knitted with fancy cable pattern in beautiful mandarin shade. For this blanket I used lovely worsted weight wool yarn Cascade 220 superwash. This soft and warm yarn looks great with cable patterns. It is one of my favorite yarns for winter time.


The blanket is knitted back and forth on circular needles and the edging is knitted in the round. The size of the blanket is approximately 74 x 86 cm.


I wrote the knitting pattern for this blanket which is available from one of my pattern stores. The knitting pattern is easy to follow and suitable for intermediate knitters. It has six pages of instructions, cable charts and row-by-row instructions for them and picture.

Cloudlet Hat and Scarf Set

13.11.15
Some time ago Cloudborn Fibers offered their new yarn which will be available from 15th November 2015 to create a free pattern for them. I was so excited to try a new yarn so I agreed to do this straight away. A bit later I received a package with 2 x 100g skeins of Fine Highland Worsted Wool yarn in Heather Grey colour.


The yarn is so beautiful, soft and really easy to work with. I really love the colour and its texture.  Garments made with this yarn are really warm and comfortable to wear. I decided to design hat and matching scarf set with a cable pattern using this great wool yarn. When I tried different cables I re-knitted my swatch about five times and nothing has happened with the yarn. So I think the set will last for a long time and keep the same shape and look like new for a very long time.
So, please welcome Cloudlet Hat and Scarf set. If you love knitting cables then this pattern for you. This stylish set will keep you away from cold and wind. The set is knitted with nice cable pattern. The hat is knitted in the round with no seam and the scarf is knitted back and forth on needles.
