The last of the tussilago baby accessories patterns

Tussilago docksjo design 650

The last of the tussilago baby accessories patterns is finally released and I think this might be my favorite of the three even if I think they all look best together. Tussilago hat is a helmet style earflap hat in the size range from preemie to 49 cm head circumference and is intended to work for children 0-2 years just as Tussilago mittens and scarf.

All the Tussilago patterns are as a bundle here.

This was a brith and wonderful day and it always feels like a treat to work with this model, he so happy and adorable with his curly hair just like his mom. I knit all of these in Isager Alpaca 2 in a beautiful natural grey, I think that this makes the perfect set all knit in the same yarn and you can of course use a many different yarns for the patterns, this one it available locally to me and I live the depth in the colour and the lightness of the yarn.

Asklöv

pompom Asklöv docksjo design

My newest design, it is still only available as a pre-order but will be released properly very soon (waiting for the printer and shipping and things). It is a part of Pompom quarterly issue 18 Autumn 2016, the natural dye issue. It is a hat with a leaf stitch pattern in colour work and a fold over twisted rib brim for extra warmth. The leaf motif is inspired by the ash leafs shape with a nice organic round but pointy shape.

I’m so pleased with this design, it turned out just as I imagined even if I was very nervous sending away the hat and pattern to pompom. Thankfully their photographer Rachel Hayton manage to capture it perfectly and the hat fit the model, something I was very anxious about beforehand as I didn’t have the models measurements when I was knitting the sample.

It feels amazing and a bit strange to be published along side these other amazing designers and I’m so incredibly happy to have my first non self published pattern and to have it in my favourite magazine feels amazing. Although I love the freedom and non restricted timetable of self-publishing it is something special to have this and definitely want to aim for an occasional collaboration. If you want to get your hand on a copy of this lovely magazine you can order it on pompommag.com

Pärlhyacint Cardigan

Pärlhyacint docksjo design

A new cardigan pattern for children and babies. The pattern is named after the spring bulb Muscari botryoidesin in Swedish Pärlhyacint and its beautiful stacking of the buds is the inspiration for the stitch pattern. As my favourite fashion era is the 1940’s to the 1960’s it’s no wonder that the cardigan has some resemblance of that period. It comes in sizes from newborn all the way up to early teens and I hope that you will like it. I knitted the sample in Rosy green wool, Big merino hug and the pattern is available both as a single pattern in my store and as a pattern yarn kit trough Organic Knitters.

I’m back with a few old photos

blåbär waistcoat docksjo design

I’m finally well enough to work a bit again, after a month of quite horrible exhaustion and stomach ache, it was never anything serious but the effects were quite extensive anyway. So now that I’m back I finally edited the photos from the blåbär waistcoat photo shoot over a month ago.

This is my friend’s awesome kid wearing Blåbär waistcoat knitted in Organic Knitters Alpacka and a prototype for a trouser pattern I hope to release this autumn. The only issue we had this day was that she really wanted to keep the waistcoat.

New pattern Blåbär Waistcoat

blåbär waistcoat docksjo design

I’m so glad to have another new pattern Blåbär Waistcoat a cute ribbed waistcoat with a button placket. It is sized from newborn all the way to teens and the long design together with the stretchy fabric allows it to grow with the child. The skill level is marked as advanced beginner, that is to say that you need to know how to knit but not much more in order to be able to follow the directions with a little determination. This pattern will soon be available as a kit through organic knitters using her lovely fair superfine alpaca, which I used for one of the samples. It works really well with the design, is wonderfully soft and drapes beautifully but not too much. I have created this pattern in collaboration with Matilda of Organic knitters and it has been a delight working with her.

I have a few photo session fails with the waistcoat, it can sometimes be hard working with children that sometimes don’t want to be a part of your ideas at all, but as the pattern is finished and I wanted to be able to release it right away I went ahead anyway. I have another photo session scheduled this week and I hope that it will work this time around. In the mean time here is one of my testers toddler in her new waistcoat so you can get an idea of the fit. Isn’t she adorable?

Every new release makes me skip of joy and this one turned out just as I imagined, super cute and functional. It is the best feeling in the world and I hope that you like this new design as well.

Vide Socks are Back

20160314_2591docksjo design

I’m happy to announce that Vide socks are back in the new format with lots of additional sizes from approximately 3 years (Eur 25) to large adult. The pattern was originally written toe up style but as an extra bonus I added instructions for cuff down as well so you can choose the method you prefer. I really hope that you are as excited as I am, this was one of my first designs and I think those delicate leaves are stunning and along with changes to give perfect fit and a sculptured leg to prevent them from sagging they’re a wonderful addition to any sock drawer. For more information see the Pattern Page.
