And then there were two…

Hot on the hoofs of Maeve comes Pearl, another beauty for the Made By Ewe flock.

She has a lacy coat knitted in sky blue yarn from Jamiesons.  Lovely and summery.

The pattern is really easy to knit, even though it might not look it.  The complicated bit was working out the shaping, but I’ve done that for you and all you have to do is follow the pattern in the kit.

She’s called Pearl because she has a Mother -of-Pearl button to fasten her coat. 

She’s got a sister called Heather but she’s in pieces at the moment – I should be able to pull her together soon!

About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!
