My first knitting patterns have been released! You can find them either on Ravelry or in the Pattern shop here on my blog. The Blossom cap and cowl are a matching set of light-weight accessories that together use that special single skein of fingering weight yarn you have in the stash.
The design started with the cap. I was inspired by the beautiful cherry blossoms that seem to magically appear overnight on campus each year. And for me, the warmer time of the year is the perfect time to show off some lace knitting. All of that got wrapped up together in my brain and turned into the Blossom Cap. And I just happened to have the perfect skein of pale pink yarn stashed away …sometimes hoarding yarn for the right project pays off. With a good chunk of yarn left over after the cap was finished, a matching Blossom Cowl just seemed like a perfect way to continue the design.
I’m so excited to get this design released, so I’m offering a special: if you purchase both patterns you save 25%. And I have to send out a big, ginormous thank you to my test knitters: Tahnée and Steph for helping me both patterns ready for release.
Speaking of test knitting, I’ve started a Ravelry group for my designs that I’m hoping to use as a spot to post about test knitting opportunities for upcoming patterns. If you are interested in test knitting for me (or you just want to stay up-to-date on pattern releases), please feel free to join.
