One of my patterns is published in a book!

My best-selling Entrechat pattern is now available in a book, 101 One-skein Wonders for Babies, which you can find in any good bookstore along with the other books in the series.

Such a brilliant idea to use up that stash! The other 100 designs that are included in the book are super adorable, and really quick knits, so you should definitely check out the book before you get started on your holiday knitting 😉

It’s so much fun to see this pattern, one of my favorites, in print, and I think they did such a great job with the photoshoot. Could the little model be any cuter? Those cheeks!

As always, to see more of my designs, swing by my Ravelry store!

Alouette

“Alouette, gentille alouette…”
As sweet as a whimsical children’s song, this little cardigan is the prefect addition to a little girl’s wardrobe.
Straightforward to knit with its top-down construction and pretty stitch pattern, it features lovely details such as the subtle flare at the top of the 3/4 sleeves, which echoes the overall swingy shape.

Alouette calls for sport weight yarn and comes in sizes 3 months to 8 years. You can find it in my Ravelry, Craftsy, and Etsy stores.

Broderie

I wanted a romantic little girl dress, something with a hint of nostalgia but not too fussy. Think English garden tea parties! Something you could play croquet in 🙂
The embellished bottom hem adds a bit of lightness to a clean, polished design but the dress is still comfortable and easy to wear. Two lengths are suggested: top or dress.

Tartelette

This one is as irresistible as those miniature berry tarts, with its pretty cable edging and rich seed stitch “filling”.
It can be as chic or as casual as you want, either paired up with a pretty summer dress in the evening or on a windy day, or simply dressing up a pair of jeans in the Fall. The back has a slight poof to it, to echo the puffed sleeves.

Several options are offered in the pattern:
-two lengths (shrug and cardigan),
-two closure types (button and I-cord)
-two sleeve types (puffed or regular – short or long).

A very quick and fun knit, with an unusual construction, it will showcase your prettiest yarns and the little ladies are sure to love it!

Carousel

There is something a bit retro and playful about this one, like the carousels of our childhoods! You can just relax and enjoy the ride 😉

Carousel is a very simple unisex cardigan that knits up in no time. Perfect to use small amount of leftover yarn, and to have fun with color! Two versions can be knit from this pattern: a short sleeve or a long sleeve version. Adorable pockets can be worked too.

Peekaboo

“Peekaboo! I see you!”

This classic crew-neck top-down sweater gets downright playful with its faux undershirt peeking out of it. Garter stripes offer endless customization opportunities while using up yarn leftovers, and cute faux seams add a nice polished touch. There’s even an option to add pockets!

Boy Sweater

Here’s one that I think every little man AND every little lady should have 🙂
Shawl collars are always nice and cozy under a coat — especially for children who, like mine, adamantly reject scarves… Designed to be relatively close-fitting, this sweater won’t add bulk under a jacket.
The twisted rib detail and a fun (and easy!) texture stitch add a bit of sophistication. Comfort and style!

Tutu Top

Sweet and simple and super-swingy… The idea was to give that gauzy, “tutu” feel while keeping this top modern and practical.
The result is not too frilly but definitely girly!

Silverfox Hats

Soon after I released my Silverfox Cardigan I started receiving requests for a matching hat. I pretty quickly came up with a cute little bonnet using the same cable motifs on garter background — I love bonnets for younger babies and toddlers who will instantly remove any other type of hat placed on their heads, and thus, here’s Silverfox Bonnet (which comes in sizes Newborn to Child:)

But of course, the bonnet style is a bit girly, and I thought I’d better come up with a classic beanie as well, with a slouch option because why not, and sizing from Newborn to Adult. Behold Silverfox Beanie and Slouch:

So here you go, 2 Silverfox Hats, available both as individual patterns and as a discounted eBook (click on image to go to Ravelry for eBook purchase):
