New Pattern!

Image
It's quite a while since I self-published a pattern, what with making dolls, family bereavements and a husband changing jobs, and beginning some regular magazine work.

But through it all I've found a little bit of time to work on my own designs.  This particular design had been floating around my head for a few months so I'm very excited to finally be able to release the finished pattern.

Meet Polar Bear.

He's quite large at 17 inches tall and he has a pretty rotund tummy, making him nice and squishy for hugs!  The best part has to be his removable fairisle jumper.  It really turned out well, and has a modern 'Scandi' feel - that's very hip at the moment!!
The pattern can be bought on Ravelry, or Etsy.

A Maths Morning

I'm doing lots of maths this morning trying to design a Scandi-inspired jumper for a teddy. I just need to knit it up now and see if it works.
