Be Sweet



Spring! It's getting so close and I couldn't be happier! This is a perfect time to get these two sweet sweater patterns out there... I literally knitted up both my samples two years ago and since then they've just been waiting for that perfect time! And that time is now.







Be Sweet Lady


Like a strawberry cake or a butter cream cookie, or the original little girl version of the same sweater, Be Sweet Lady is the sweetest jumper of the season! Lovely modern and relaxed fit meets girly stitch pattern of the front. It’s simply irresistible in this light bluish colorway.

Suggested yarn: Bowland DK by Eden Cottage Yarns

Needles: US 8 (5 mm) and US 2½ (3.0 mm)

Finished body circumference:
32 (36, 40, 44, 48, 52)” / 80 (90, 100, 110, 120, 130) cm. Choose a size with 1-2” (2-5 cm) of positive ease.


€ 4.90

Confetti



It's still full Winter here, but Spring is getting close! And typically Spring means new things for me. Staring fresh, starting new, you name it! So here I am, planning new things, starting new designs and new knits, but I never get to actually publishing all these new designs... And this isn't the first year this is happening. That "almost-ready-designs" -pile is getting very high! This is something I would love to change! 

To get things moving, I just thought it's best simply to start... Somewhere. So I'm starting with a fun one:






Confetti Sweater

Confetti sweater is both loose and fitted – in all the right places! Fitted yoke and sleeves are paired with a very A-line shaped body making this little sweater fun and easy to wear. Confetti also has delicate stripes, making the color possibilities practically endless. Choose your favorite colors and cast on!

Suggested yarn: Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles and Lioness Arts Merino Singles

Needles: US 4 (3.5 mm) and US 2½ (3.0 mm)

Finished chest circumference: 30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50, 54)” / 75 (85, 95, 105, 115, 125, 135) cm.

Interpretations 4



Can't believe that it's the time again! For the fourth time, me and my knitter sister Joji, can finally share with you the result of our yearly collaboration! Here is -

Interpretations Vol. 4

You all know the drill by now! We chose six words, themes, for the collection, with two designs for each theme: our personal interpretation of the word. This time we chose the following words: Gather, Chromatic, Magic, Fragile, Direction and Hidden. More details on the website or on Ravelry!

Travelling has always been a big part of the photos, and because we are living on opposite sides of the world it's also a must! This time we returned to Finland for the second time.

Again we had the pleasure to work with the most wonderful photographer and dear friend! Jonna, I know I'm again repeating myself here (for fourth time probably), but you truly can see magic through the lens of your camera, you catch the things I never thought anyone can see! We are so grateful!

Also, there is a print option for the collection available from Pom Pom Press. We are so happy about this!
