Now that it’s official, I’m excited to announce that I have 2 patterns available through Knit Picks’ Independent Designers Program!
The first pattern is an update of a pattern I’d published in 2008. The pattern was in a calendar, and since it isn’t easy to purchase old, outdated calendars, I have updated the pattern info and made it available again:
Felted Poker Coasters
It’s time to go “all in” and knit up a set of felted coasters.
These playing-card-themed coasters knit up so fast that they would make a great hostess gift, and if you start now you can have a set ready in time for the next big game.
This pattern would work well for beginners to knitting in intarsia, as the felting would hide any uneven tension changes for those unfamiliar to color work. One ball of the Cloud (white) and two balls each of the Red and Coal (black) are enough yarn to make a full set of 12 coasters.
You can purchase the pattern for $1.99 US through Knit Picks’ website here.
The next pattern has is one that I’ve been knitting for a while and giving away as gifts. Now you can make one too!
My First Superhero
Knit in Comfy Worsted, My First SuperHero is a quick, cuddly knit sure to please kids of all ages!
This pattern is a great moneysaver as one ball of each of the four colors required make two complete toys as shown.
He’s a “super” introduction to intarsia too, making him a good project for beginners looking to expand their skills. There are no loose bits and the cape is knit directly from the back-neck, so My First SuperHero is safe for even the youngest children. I have included a full alphabet and number chart so that each toy can be personalized for the recipient.
Taking only a few nights to complete, you’ll be the hero with this last-minute gift!
