Whimsical Little Knits 3
In the third Whimsical Little Knits collection Ysolda focuses on the vibrant knitting community, photographing each design on a friend she made through designing — you might recognize some of the models! The collection is available as a printed book, perfectly sized for your project bag, and an ebook. All printed book purchases include access to the ebook. Every pattern in the collection can also be purchased individually — no more having to buy a whole book when you know you’ll only knit one pattern, although of course buying the collection as a whole is better value.
Download your ebook immediately after checking out, you'll also receive this link via email. Create an account to access all of your purchases.

Whimsical Little Knits 3 includes nine patterns.
Each pattern includes clear directions, a choice of written directions or charts whenever appropriate and interesting techniques and construction methods ensure your valuable knitting time is well spent.

Narwhals might seem mythically strange, and explorers once sold their tusks as “authentic unicorn horns”, but they’re real whales. They can be found inside the arctic circle and now they can keep your hands cosy in temperatures they’d be perfectly at home in. Traditional Selbuvotter mitten patterns on the cuffs and palms combine with fun details like the fish on the thumbs and, of course, the narwhals.
One of my favourite patterns in the first Whimsical Little Knits is the Tiny Shoes, simple little baby Mary Janes with an I-cord strap. When the pattern came out, plenty of knitters seemed to like it just as much as I did, but some of them didn’t just want to make tiny shoes. The question “could I make a pattern for Tiny Shoes for bigger feet” seemed to have an obvious answer: “no, the proportions are all wrong, they’ll be much too wide and short.” But, I’m nothing if not contrary, and once I’d decided that scaling up the Tiny Shoes pattern wouldn’t work, it proved impossible to completely let go of the idea.
Oxidize features an asymmetrical cable panel that makes a basic ribbed beanie much more interesting to work, without sacrificing the things that make these beanies such a great classic. Truly my favourite kind of project, Oxidize is perfectly balanced between mindless and interesting, quick to complete, and easily adaptable to anyone’s style.
A sweet pixie hood inspired both by cute patterns from the forties for little girls and more glamorous ones of starlets in headscarves.
A few years ago I was obsessed with creating illustrative lace patterns, most of which ended up simply looking messy. It turns out that there are good reasons that most traditional lace patterns are simple, geometric representations of things like leaves and feathers. A stylized representation of a pair of cherries on their stalks turned out rather successfully and the pattern flowed well into columns of a simple geometric mesh pattern. And so I knit a shawl, but my design abilities were rather ahead of my pattern creation abilities and it took a little while to catch up in addition to simply finding the time to revisit the idea but I’m so glad to finally be sharing it.
With this pattern it might finally be time to stop claiming that I’m not a sock knitter. It started with the engineering, a toe-up, heel flap sock with arch well fitting arch shaping, that I’d previously tried out with a simple stockinette design.
