The shop is sadly closed for a while we have a little too much on our plate at the moment but will hopefully be back soon if/when we sort childcare for our amazing special kiddo.
New pattern a pixie bonnet, Saffran Pixie, using t simmular patterning as Saffran Cardigan so you can make a Scandinavian vintage style set if you want. I am so loving this style it is cute and playful, but still practical with the ties keeping it in place and the point smal enough to fit inside a bike helmet. It is knit in the round and steeked open and in the same gauge and yarn as Saffran Cardigan so you only have to swatch once. Continue reading
Kaprifol Leggings a new knitting pattern for winter leggings or trousers sized from premature – 10 years. We love them and the kiddo has been wearing hers striate out of the wash for the past couple of months now. The smalest size is the size that our little premature had when we got to bring her home with home care and started using clothes as a small 35 week baby one year ago. The Leggings are a a little thicker than usual and suitable for colder weather, rather quick to knit due to the gauge and simple construction.
Asklöv hat is finally ready and rereleased and you can find it in my shop. I’m so happy to be able to work a little bit agin and there are a few more pattern in progress and hopefully reaching you in the coming months. Working with a little one at home is definitely different but we are starting to get in to a new routine, this far it is getting easier and easier, and I love this that I can stay home with her for as long as we want and still work in the evenings without even leaving home.

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.
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.
New patterns! The new Tussilago Baby Collection is available for pre-order. You will recieve the Mittens pattern right away and the Scarf and Hat within a couple of weeks. As a special release offer you can get the entire collection for the price of one pattern until Friday October 7. I really hope that you will enjoy these patterns as much as I do.They are quick to knit and simple, but with a flair of elegance that makes them just as pretty as easy to make.
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
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.
