Hey all! Just a quick post to let you know that I have a pattern for a stripey, baby sweater in the Winter issue of Knit Simple. It’s knit from the top down, and in one piece. That means NO SEAMING for you, busy mama! Get the pattern plus the KS team’s tutorial on making it in the issue on stands now.  Oh, and as always, Sheep(ish) is available at your local retailer or at Buy.Caron.com.

The lastest issue of Petite Purls went live yesterday, and nestled amongst all of the adorable knit projects are my crocheted wrist warmers for kids!
Model: Clover / Photos: Dave Campbell

As a busy mama, wrist warmers are one of my favorite things to make. They serve the purpose of keeping little hands warm without restricting fingers from coloring, itsy-bitsy spider-ing, or playing on an iPad. They’re quick enough to whip-up though, that I can feel a sense of accomplishment from actually finishing something. Anything.
The Wristy Business version are crocheted, using front and back-post single crochet stitches to create an interesting texture and adding to the practicality of a button, ribbed cuff. These are sized from toddler to adult so make a pair for your kiddo, then treat yourself (and everyone you know) to a pair, too!

Get the pattern here, and the yarn to make ’em at select JoAnn and Michaels stores.

It me be hot outside now, but before you know it you’ll be looking for something to keep your kiddos warm! My latest Sheep(ish) design, the Pumpkin Pixie hat, will have you (or your child’s head, as it were) covered!

Knit up in colors: Lime(ish) and Coral(ish), the graduating stripes, earflaps and nubbin top are a little bit elfin and a little bit punk rock! Get the pattern on Caron.com and nab the yarn at JoAnn Etc. stores or Buy.Caron.com.

My latest Sheep(ish) design is up as a free pattern on Caron.com! The Baby Granny Hat for the craft-dexterous–the body of the hat is made from crocheted, granny squares that are sewn together. The band and crown are then knit. This is a great, portable project to work on at the pool this summer. Whip it up now, so it’ll be ready for the Fall!
