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.

Robot Bib, how can you resist?

Welcome!

For today’s show and tell, I present…..

My robot bib, design for issue 134 of Simply Knitting magazine.  This bib has a intarsia robot (you could cheat and swiss darn).  It also has some I-cord ties to keep the bib safely in place.

The bib is worked in King Cole Bamboo cotton, so it is absorbent and will wash really well 🙂

I would love to see pictures of your little cuties in their robot bib, especially if you make a pink one.  Happy Knitting, Jane x
