Saffran Cardigan   docksjo design

Saffran Cardigan

20151127_1330docksjo design-3

This new super cute cardigan is just perfect for the colder months, the size range is newborn – 2 year more will come but in order to get this pattern out in time for holiday knitting that will have to come at a later point. The pattern comes with a sewn in lining that you can attach to make it extra special if you want and the instructions describes how to assemble and sew in the lining. You if you don’t want a lining or aren’t that comfortable sewing you have the option of securing the steek with a ribbon instead as is the more common way of securing the steek. Check out the new pattern store or go directly to the pattern page for Saffran Cardigan.

In order to be able to sell sewing patterns I have had to change my shopping system this is still in progress so there and at the moment 2 different checkout systems in the shop but apart from that every thing still works and is user friendly. Go en check out the new store design, I have been going with sketches to my husband that have frantically been coding to get every thing to look as I want it to. I think the new design looks very professional, tidy and much more in my aesthetic.

If you prefer you buy knitting pattern trough ravelry so you can keep them in your ravelry library this is your last change all old pattern are still available through ravelry but will be removed and put in the new shopping system one by one as I go trough them. The first ones will go on Monday December 7th so you have this week. I think the new system is grate different but grate and the best thing it that I can sell sewing patterns, knitting patterns and notions in the same store which is a huge benefit.

Knit skirt

20150902_1203-2

My sister Just turned 7 and started first grade, so I wanted to make her something that is easy to care for and easy to use. I decided to knitted her a skirt. She have had a purple phase and hoping it will stay for a while, I made it purple. The pattern is from Sandnes hefte 1509 it’s in Norwegian (sorry folks) I used Cascade 220 superwash, It was the first time I used cascade yarns and it was great to work with, being superwash the yarn did have a bit of a plastic feeling about it but it was not more then expected from a superwash yarn. I’m really pleased with the result and think that the finished product is fun and suitable for a 7 year old.

I expected this to be a vey quick knit and it did take a bit longer then I estimated and to be honest it wasn’t the most exciting thing to knit but well worth it, the best bit in my opinion is the colourwork section in the middle it really gives something to the design and was fun to knit. Both the hem and the waistband it folded over and sewn down, this gives a very crisp finish to the skirt, the waist band have an elastic inside to you won’t have to worry about it sliding down since the elastic gives that extra structure to allow play and running around climbing trees or monkey bars.

The cardigan in the first picture is latte baby coat.
