Goodbye June and hello July.
Can you believe how quickly this year is passing so far? One minute we are in deepest winter with snow in Cornwall (yes you read that correctly.) And the next we are in extremely hot temperatures and June has passed us by already.
June has shown the hottest temps in ten years in our lovely part of the world. So what on earth prompted me to create a sweater pattern??!!
Well it’s quite simple really. I first started designing this back in April/May, when the evenings were still very very cool.. As it happens, this sweater still comes in handy when we take our Black Lab, Ollie, for his late night walks. We have to wait until the heat of the day is completely gone, before we walk him, as he really does not do well with any kind of heat at all.
My daughter goes away on her school residential trip on the 8th of this month, and on her kit list it states “something warm for the evenings” so, not only can you buy this Tulip Sweater pattern in adult sizes, you can purchase it in child size too! :0)
(Christine absolutely adores this sweater, and keeps asking can she wear it now?) Grins.
I have created a Mummy & Me Bundle which gives you the two patterns together, for a massively discounted price.
If you would like it on Ravelry then click here. If purchasing here, simply add both patterns to your cart, and your lovely discount will be applied automatically for you! :0)
I have made three of these so far, using Buttermilk, Graphite, and Silver, all Stylecraft Special Double Knit yarn shades. It is soft, easy to work with, and wears so well too. Perfect for a sweater that is clearly going to be much loved, and worn a lot. Smiles.
I have created a pattern that is very quick to work up, very easy to follow, and turns out just beautifully.
Here is a comment which was left for me at the weekend (it made my whole week!) :0)
How cool is that?! Big happy smiles.
All you need for this pattern, is a 6mm hook (J size) and (starting from 20” chest in the child size, all the way up to 42” chest in the adult size) is 2 to 5 balls of Stylecraft Special Double Knit yarn.
Oh and a stitch marker.
I designed this sweater from the top down, it is seamless and the only sewing involved is the weaving in of your ends, if you don’t work them in as you crochet.
Here’s how it looks in a self striping yarn. Fabulous isn’t it?!
This one was created by one of my lovely pattern testers, and I loved it instantly!
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
Hugs & Happy Crafting Everyone!
