Baseball and Bat

I hope you are all having a wonderful fall! I finished a pattern that I designed a few years ago but hadn't finished editing and writing directions for until recently. The baseball and bat pattern is now available!

This is a perfect toy for the little athlete! Because it is soft, this knitted version of the classic toy is great for use indoors and won’t break things the way a real bat and ball would.

Included in the pattern are directions, with photos, for making a foam insert with a dowel in the middle for added stability.

The pattern comes with two options for working the bat- flat or in the round. I like to avoid seaming wherever possible, so my first version of the pattern was in the round. However, getting the knitted fabric over the foam insert was extremely difficult so I added the flat version. This can easily be sewn up around the foam insert.

If you aren't a knitter or want a finished bat and ball, I have a few available in my Etsy shop.

Little Love Bunnies

In honor of Valentine's Day, I have just released my latest pattern- Little Love Bunnies! This sweet little pair of bunnies look adorable standing next to each other. You could just knit one, or the pair, or more. The clothes could also be knit in spring colors. The little bunnies would be a great addition to an Easter basket.

These pocket-sized bunnies are knit in fingering weight yarn. They use a small amount of yarn, making them a great stash-busting project. The two bunnies are made from the same pattern, but can be dressed in overalls or a dress. Both the overalls and the dress have crocheted chain straps that cross in the back. The dress has lovely lace hearts along the bottom.
