I am so excited to show you my first ever knitting pattern designed and knitted (without any holes) by yours truly!
I love autumn, I suspect for the same reasons most do, the colours of the landscape changing, wrapping up warm in all my favourite knits and boots! Not forgetting the smell of fallen leaves and bonfires, hot chocolate and pigging out on stews and hot puddings nom nom.
But when we start drawing closer to winter, and all the leaves have fallen, the landscape is baron, the bitter cold dark mornings and dark nights begin to depress me, I always seek comfort and cheeriness in my bright jumpers and scarfs, lots of coloured pattern tights and now a RAINBOW snood!
My snood (Haven’t decide its name yet!) is lovely and versatile, you can wear it down over your shoulders, up round your neck like a cowl, or as a snood. When in snood mode, I designed it to hug your neck, because when I am cold I hate having my neck exposed to the wind! It was this very reason that I decided to have a go at designing my own.
I am in the process of writing the pattern up, and have my test knitters with their sticks at the ready J so it shouldn’t be too long before I can share it with you all. (I will also get it looked at by a technical editor to make sure the numbers add up!.)
I have already started another in sparkly DK that I dyed Mustard a little while ago, which should give a great idea of how the snood looks in a semi/solid.
I had great fun with my friend Sabrina AKA nominated photographer taking pictures for today’s post, and while I will leave the detailed photos for the actual pattern, I hope these give you a good idea of what’s to come.
Have a fabulous weekend.
