New Pattern: Olga!

I am really, really, really happy with my newest knitting pattern (which is my last self-published design of the year). Grace and Lucy did such a great job modeling, and the sweaters came out just right! Stephania of Three Fates Yarns custom dyed the yellow yarn for me, which you can order from her shop (the color way is called Rubber Ducky–if she doesn’t have any in stock, I’m sure you can message her to arrange for it!).

I named Olga for designer Olga Buraya-Kefelian, whose love of the “grellow” (grey and yellow) color combination partially inspired this sweater.

Knitted in fingering weight yarn at a slightly loose gauge, there are two length options and two sleeve options, plus the option to use a contrast color for the trim and inside the pocket. This pattern does have some finishing–i-cord trim, sewing the pocket, and small underarm seams for the sleeved version–but it does not take long and is worth the effort.

Sized from infant to 6-7 years, with positive ease so each size fits comfortably for a while.

    you know, your knit-work and designs are so beautiful that i might just have to learn how to knit (properly) one of these days. i mean, i can knit and purl… i just don’t know how to make anything (structured), or read a pattern! hmm… really adorable sweaters. could a relative beginner start w something like this or is that totally crazy?

    I don’t think that’s crazy, especially since we’re practically neighbors, so I can help if you run into any problems.
