The perfect introduction to traditional stranded colourwork techniques.
Worked seamlessly from the top down, Wee Chickadee is the perfect introduction to both this style of garment construction and stranded colourwork.
This sweet little sweater has come full circle. From a photo of a toddler in a 1940s pattern book to one of my most popular designs for women back to a cardigan for little ones.
This little sweater is the result of a silly challenge I set myself the day before a scheduled photoshoot with a newborn. That adorable sleepy stage is fleeting and new parents have enough to deal with without me showing up constantly, camera in hand, and a bag full of outfits. Could I knit just one more sweater in a day. I could. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend that you do the same, but even if it takes a little more than one day, Envelope makes a great fast gift.
A tiny version of one of Ysolda’s most popular women’s sweater designs. Liesl is a round yoked cardigan worked from the neck down in a simple allover feather and fan lace pattern. Shown in a luxurious wool and silk blend sportweight yarn that’s surprisingly easy to care for; Liesl would be beautiful as part of a special occasion outfit but it’s just as at home playing on the forest floor.
Wee Melia is a cozy and practical jacket that’s also, in red, great fun for dressing up as Little Red Riding Hood. Worked from the top of the hood down and with borders very little finishing is required.
