  • NEW! Baby blanket 'Ellis' is here 28 April 2016 | View comments

  • Hi there

    Its good to see that so many of you are still buying my new spring beanie knitting patterns. I think they are perfect for this weather as they look fresh and spring-like, but keep little heads warm..... as its still soooo cold here in the UK!   You should be able to knit one up in an evening or two.

    My spring beanies had this really nice write up in Love Knitting for Baby's May issue.


    I'm also writing to let you know that the PDF knitting pattern for my new 'Ellis' cabled baby blanket has just been released. I have chosen to design a 4ply blanket this time as this lightweight blanket is perfect for the summer months. This blanket has been knitted in Rowan Super Fine Merino 4ply in the colour Blush. You can also knit it in any other 4ply yarn that recommends 3.25mm (US#3) needles.

    I chose this cool pale contemporary pink shade, but this blanket isn't just for girls. This unisex cable stitch will also look beautiful in other pale neutral colours, white, cream, dove grey and duck egg blue. Or choose fun brights, or boyish greens, browns, blues and greys.
    If you want to knit a blanket ahead of knowing if the 'bump' is a girl or boy, I find cream is always a good option.

    Don't forget to send in some photos of your finished knits as I always love to see them

    Speak again soon

    Happy Knitting!
