She likes flowers, especially the smell of roses
but it is just a little bit scary when they’re even bigger than her!
She loves to snuggle mousie,
but can’t wait to have a friend called Madeleine to play with!
Thank you for all of the wonderful name suggestions, it looks like you all have names picked out for your versions. The doll pattern will be part of the little collection I’m working on, and although it will be a while before it’s totally ready I promise it’s coming together. And after that I think it might be fun to do a collection of variations on the basic doll with a stuffed wardrobe full of clothes patterns. I mean other than the sweater collection I’m also working on, did I mention that? I’m quite excited to get back to those sweaters when the wee things are done.
An alternating cable cast on is a useful, stretchy cast on for ribbing that’s less fussy to work than a tubular cast on. It’s worked like a regular cable cast on, but instead of casting on each stitch knitwise stitches are alternately cast on knitwise and purlwise.
This tutorial includes both step by step photos and videos so you can use whichever suits you better.
This post was originally in our newsletter last week and since then several subscribers have reached out with incredible kindness to say that they'll miss the club but want to keep supporting us. We appreciate that so much, and, although we obviously need purchases to keep the business going there are lots of other ways that you can support us. I've added a few notes at the end on ways that you can support our business and my design work without spending money. All of them apply to other small yarn businesses, and many of them to small businesses of all kinds.
