Saturday, Pattern Day #31

If you are knitting or have already knit a pattern that I’m talking about, leave me a comment and I’ll update my post with a link to your version. If you’ve written up a pattern and you want me to link to it, send me an email or leave me a comment and I’ll post it! It makes the list longer and my job easier.

  • Don’t knit Cecil unless you’re prepared to have it showered with mushy peas.
  • If you knit Cisco, you can make your child look like a miniature Japanese teenager. (I like to imagine that all Japanese people wear wacky clothes and live on the covers of Gwen Stefani albums.)
  • If you’re already preparing for Easter, here’s a pattern for knitted Easter eggs. And here’s another.
  • These Picot edged mittens are mega-cute.
  • Here’s a rough guide for a slouchy beret. I’ve not had success making hats for myself, so I might want to try something like this to fit over my hair, which is usually tied back and too big for my tighter hats.
  • This Sheila Cape is so adorable!
  • Bristol is a neck warmer, and it’s pretty classy.
  • Brompton is a pretty cardigan pattern. I love the colour! But I like tighter-fitting sweaters so it may not be my style. The basket-weave stitch on the edges is really smart, though! Example here.
  • I never realized there were lots of other Smariek patterns! Here’s a Heart Lace Cloth (in time for Valentine’s Day), Persephone Mitts, Swirl Hat, Osiris, Regina, and an Embossed Turtle.

  2. This is a great link post! I love pattern Saturday! My only downer comment is that Smariek took both the heart and the turtle straight from the Barbara Walker Treasuries. It’s kind of offensive to me that those are marked “copyright,” since they are essentially swatches. There’s nothing wrong with borrowing, and if she had done a cardigan with turtle pockets I would call that an original pattern, but a copywritten swatch? Better to credit Barbara Walker….

  3. You’re right, Julia. I didn’t notice that until you mentioned it. I’d never seen the turtle before, but now I realize the hearts do indeed look familiar.
