sarah's cayuga-1 Hello – it’s Sarah here!  Since I started working for Ysolda a few weeks ago she’s been asking me to to hijack her blog every so often to show you what I’m knitting.  I seem to be getting through quite a lot of projects at the moment, mainly because lots of them are small and unlike Ysolda, I don’t talk with my hands!
I’m doing lots of Christmas knitting, but I managed to knit myself this cute hat and mitts set, Cayuga by Connie Chang Chinchio knit in Berroco Ultra Alpaca in just a couple of days.  I’ve decided that I need more of my knitwear to match so picked up some yarn on the tour to knit these as soon as the pattern was released.  The band of the hat is knit back and forth and then stitches picked up along the edge to knit the top, which means I could measure it exactly to fit and as a result it’s lovely and snug, and not likely to fly off on my dog walking adventures.  I love the twig and berries pattern round the brim of the hat and it works its way beautifully up the edge of the mittens too.

Introducing DK versions of Ravelston and Stockbridge

by Ysolda Teague June 06, 2019 0 Comments

We’ve just released DK gauge versions of my popular Stockbridge and Ravelston patterns, which were originally published for a fingering weight yarn.They’re essentially designed around the same basic construction and with a similar fit, Stockbridge is a cardigan and Ravelston a pullover.  My goal with both is that they’ll be staple patterns you can use to build your handknit wardrobe, the kind of basic patterns that work for lots of different looks.

Lightweight cowls are the perfect alternative to a shawl or scarf when you want to be able to toss something on quickly and know it will stay in place. I’ve really enjoyed designing them over the last few years and now have a few options to fit different styles.
