Such a tease

Bee/beehive will be available for download this evening.  A new space-themed pattern will be out later this week. Exciting!   A woodland-themed pattern is next. Let’s just say I’ve had to refer a lot to the Golden Guide to Non-Flowering Plants…

Besides that, here’s a hint for something I’ve got in the works…

Lion’s Mane Photo Tutorial

To prepare for the release of 5 reversible patterns tomorrow, I thought I’d share with you a tutorial for creating the lions’ manes.  Use this combination of embroidery and surface crochet to create fluffiness anywhere you need it. I’ve done this for boy dolls’ hair. I’m working on a way to turn it into a horse’s mane for an upcoming reversible toy.  So many possibilities!

Using a simple chart to place knits and purls, a secret octopus appears…  Place two beads and you’ll be able to see its eyes. Scale this hat up with more stitches or larger yarn so you can match your favorite little hatchling!

A deeply textured band is easy and fun to work. Attach a milagro charm for hope and healing. This is the most recent baby hat I’ve designed for the charity knitters on Wednesdays at the shop.  They’re just such eager test knitters!
