Gretel & free pattern updates

by ysoldateague September 14, 2007


I’ve just emailed a pattern update to everyone who purchased Gretel. If you didn’t get the email, bulk emails with attachments look rather suspicious to most filters, and want the updated file let me know. Alternatively the update is that there was a round missing in the pattern immediately before the last 2 rounds. The last 3 rounds of the pattern should be:
Next rnd: (p1, k1, ssk, k1, p2, k1, k2tog, k1, p1) to end.
Next rnd: (p1, k1, ssk, p2, k2tog, k1, p1) to end.
Next rnd: (p1, k1, ssk, k2tog, k1, p1) to end.

I’m so sorry that it has taken me so long to update the pattern, stupid cold brain! It seems like quite a few people worked this round without really thinking about it just because it fitted.
Anyone purchasing the pattern from now on will get the updated file automatically.

I’d love to see your finished versions. You can add your photos to the flickr group here:

Thank you to everyone who has purchased the pattern, it took forever to copy and paste all those email addresses!

I’ve also updated all the free pattern pages, hadn’t realised that they were so messy since the host move.

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

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.
