New pattern, and a new cardi

Filed under: chezPlum Patterns,Contest,Freebie,Gallery,Knitting,swap,WIP — February 4, 2010 @ 10:32 am

Late on schedule, let me present you my newest pattern, the Baby Altay hat ! Based on the same principles as the adult version, the Altay hat (soon to be published in Annie Modessit’s new book “1000 knit and crocheted hats”).

I made tons of those little hats, and they are so quick to make ! The patterns gives instructions for 4 sizes, ranging from newborn to 9 months, using dk weight yarn. Just like the adult version, I always get so many compliments from people who see them ! I hope you’ll love the Baby Altay hat too ! :-)

GIVEAWAY: For the release of this new pattern, I am giving away 2 copies of the pattern. Just leave me a comment telling me why you’d like a copy ! :-) I’ll annouce the winners in my next post ! ;-) Be quick !

And for those who can’t wait, you can get yours here or on Ravelry.
Price: $5

I still need to finish working on the hooded cardi. So little remaining, yet I’ve started on another project. Because my favourite ever cardi, a pretty rasperry-colored ribbed asymetrical cardigan, is showing bad signs of wear. I looked high and low for a ready-made pattern, couldn’t locate the one I know I have… and settled meanwhile on the crazy collar cardigan that’s been sitting high in my queue for ages. So yest, I’m knitting again. But for a good cause… I can’t wait to wear that one ! :-)
Oh, and the pretty yarn was sent to me by a kind lady as a swap for patterns. “Fairy hare”, with angora and Merino. Looks yummy, I’ll have to decide on a pretty project to use it. :-)

    I love what you do with granny squares! Last year after getting your Granny Mitts pattern, I made up about 6 pairs! SO cute, so fun, some for me, some for gifts. I would love to add this granny-inspired pattern to my collection, especially since we have new babies in the family now.
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Nic:

    I tell you these are inspired. And perfect for a beginner like me who only ever learned to crochet granny squares. Lots of my friends are having babies now so I would love to have the pattern to spread the gifts around.

    Well, I’d love a copy… mainly because I’m going to be a mom! I’m 7 weeks along with my first and am not looking forward to the back problems, so I imagine a lot of bedrest in the future… with lots of baby-clothing knitting too! Maybe some for myself, too. Wait, I mean, mostly for myself… ;)
