Mini Robot Sweater

I love my job, I may have said this before?  I love when a design that is in my head works just as well as I hoped it would.

This robot sweater is one of those designs,  it knitted up a treat and my model, well he is just so handsome.


The pattern is written for sizes 3 years – 5 years (I do have plans to re-launch this pattern in a couple months time, with a girls version and more sizes).  You can find the pattern for this inside Simply Knitting magazine issue 129.

I have had the pleasure of having this little guy model for me before and I am currently working away on my next design for him.  He is growing so fast I am having to knit larger and larger sizes!

I would love to hear from you, if you have any design inspiration for sweaters for little people that fun?  Please leave me a comment and I will see what I can do 🙂

Also featured in Issue 129 were these cute little knitted rings.

Of course I have designed a silly Christmas Jumper for the man in your life.  Introducing my Elf Yourself Sweater.

This charming sweater is a traditional drop shoulder sweater with an Intarsia Elf motif.  To make this a little easier on yourself I highly recommend swiss darning the belt buckle and black outlining on rather than using Intarsia.

The pattern is written for chest sizes 55, 58.5 and 63.5cm which is approximately 3-5 years.

You can find the pattern inside the Hand Knit Christmas supplement which is free with issue 125 of Simply Knitting Magazine.  You can download your copy here.
