Two New Knitting Patterns Just Released

October 24, 2007 at 11:55 am 3 comments

Here are the 2 NEW patterns that I’ve just added for sale at: http://www.sweaterbabe.com/knittingpatterns.htm.

Based on the same design, but one for babies/kids (sized 6-12 months through 10 years) and for women.  Aren’t they pretty?  My little 2-year old was quite happy to model the girl’s version, although she wanted big sis to be in the photos too.  They are both on bulky yarn, so they are quick knits with lots of stylish details. Enjoy!

    Any ideas from anyone on wool substitution. Or could anyone tell me what ply the suggested wools are in. Hard to get the same one as recommended in Australia..but pattern looks fantastic!
    thanks! Karen

    I just received my pattern on Thurs. Love top down sweaters! I’m a little confused on this sweater pattern. It says that an additional PDF file is available for the five techniques listed…is this for an additional cost? I don’t see where the link is to purchase it. I’m just concerned about the decorative M1R and M1L two rows below. If I choose not do it this way, can I just do a regular make one? Thanks for your help Diana

    Hi Diana,

    Good question! Sorry if it wasn’t clear…. the separate PDF downloads are sold on the SAME pages as the patterns. They have full-color illustrations of the techniques used in the pattern. You do NOT need this if you can follow my written out explanations in the pattern. The extra PDF is more for beginners or anyone who wants illustrations instead of just written explanations on the techniques. It is 9 pages long, so I didn’t want to include it in the patterns, as many will not need them if they have experience with shaping, etc.

    As to your question of just doing a “m1” instead of how I describe the “m1-L” and “m1-R” in the pattern… I don’t recommend that. The specific technique used (which is fully explained in text in the pattern, and in photos in the $1.00 extra PDF), is the best because it creates this really nice looking “fake” raglan seam look. It basically looks like a nice chain stitch (you can see in the photos above how the sleeve seam area is nice and neat). If you do some other sort of make 1 technique, it just won’t look as shown.

    Hope I’ve explained and answered your question! I didn’t want to force the additional 9 pages on everyone, as intermediate/experienced knitters wouldn’t need them, so I made it an optional, separate PDF download. If this turns out NOT to be a good idea, I will find a different way in the future!
