Lightweight cowls

Lightweight cowls

by Ysolda Teague May 30, 2019

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.

Pay what you can pattern pricing

Pay what you can pattern pricing

by Ysolda Teague May 10, 2019

Pricing patterns has always been one of the hardest parts of designing and I’ve often felt like the “standard” price of knitting patterns is both lower than other similar products (eg. indie sewing patterns) and doesn’t really reflect the amount of work that goes into them. At the same time, it’s totally fair to worry that rising pattern prices will price people out.

Adding Anti-Racism Books to Ysolda.com

by Ysolda Ltd Collaborator April 12, 2019

A reshuffle prompts a lot of reflection and one question we asked ourselves was: ‘If we were starting from scratch, what would we want to say about Ysolda Ltd.?’ One thing we all agreed on was this theme of multiples. Ysolda has become as much known for her teaching and advocacy as she has her designs. As her business evolved to include a team, we’ve evolved to include our interests and passions. That’s why today you’ll find a multifaceted home page that more accurately reflects all that we encompass.

How to swatch for a sweater

How to swatch for a sweater

by Ysolda Teague February 07, 2019

Swatches lie! One of the most common stories I hear, and one I've experienced myself, is that despite getting the right gauge on the swatch the sweater turned out unexpectedly huge or tiny. It's nearly impossible to control all of the variables that might affect the gauge in the swatch vs the finished garment but there are certainly some things you can do to maximise the honesty of your swatches.
