New! Chunky Celtic Weave Car Seat Canopy


This has to be my new favorite canopy. I can’t express how much I love the texture of this blanket! It almost looks like little fuzzy ropes woven together. This canopy is so soft and squishy! I just love it! It is easier than it looks, and takes less time than you’d think.

The blanket forms a protective car seat tent around your baby, giving them a break from prying strangers. It will keep bright lights out of your sleeping baby’s eyes, but is still breathable. Perfect for any season!

FAQ:

Q: Is this worked as a bunch of strips that you weave together?
A: No. It is worked back and forth as rows. The woven look is created by a clever technique of crossing stitches.

Q: Are there any seams or sewing?
A: The only sewing is to attach the straps. The canopy itself is worked as one piece, including the border.

Q: What yarn did you use to make the canopy in the picture?
A: I used Bernat Blanket yarn to create the canopy pictured. It is very soft and easy to work with. I would highly recommend it. You will love the results! And, no, I don’t get commission for saying that. I really just like it.

New Pattern! Chevron Car Seat Canopy and Car Seat / Stroller Blanket

I’m always excited to announce new patterns, especially when it’s a matching set!  I finally gave into the chevron fever and created a car seat canopy and matching blanket using chevrons.

Here is the Chevron Car Seat Canopy:

Photo 1_small_listing
What can I add?  It’s cute, trendy, and useful in protecting babies from sun, rain, cold…and other people.
For this canopy, I modified the straps a bit to help distribute the weight of the blanket even better than my previous designs.

 

 

 

And let’s not forget the matching blanket:

Besides being an adorable chevron blanket, it’s also a way to give a blanket for a baby gift and have it be much less work.  It can work as a wonderful stash buster if done with multiple colors.
This blanket is completely new in design.  My other car seat / stroller blankets have openings that allow the straps to pass through, thus securing the blanket.  This one uses straps at the top of the blanket to attached to the car seat handle or the stroller, leaving the straps undisturbed.

I also kind of sort of forgot about announcing another pattern that I released earlier this year.  It is the Quick ‘N Easy Chunky Car Seat Canopy:
2014_004 Listing 2

This canopy is the first that I’ve designed using a chunky weight yarn instead of worsted.  It works up very quickly and has a beautiful texture to it.

New Patterns: Crocodile Stitch Baby Beanie and Baby-licious Car Seat / Stroller Blanket

Just released March 2014 is my newest pattern, the Crocodile Stitch Baby Beanie:
2014-003 Listing

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been wanting to make a new baby hat for awhile now and I love the crocodile stitch.  This cute little hat finally popped into my thoughts.  Like my other hat patterns, the decorative stitch is from the crown down so it’s adorable from every angle.  I’m thinking of also making a pattern for children and adult sizes.  We shall see…
Both US and UK Terms included.

New Pattern Release: Waffle Stitch Car Seat Blanket

Announcing the Waffle Stitch Car Seat Blanket!

WaffleStitchCarSeatBlanket_Listing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This adorable little blanket is designed with openings for car seat or stroller straps to go through to keep it in place no matter how wiggly those baby legs are.  It’s a great project for your own baby or grand-baby, or even for a baby shower gift.  It is smaller than a regular baby blanket (so it doesn’t drag on the ground) making it an easier and quicker project for a beautiful, useful gift.

Both US and UK Terms included.

Released in December:

The last of my Santa Baby Collection (so far…) was released last month:
Santa Baby Throw Blanket – Adult and Baby Sizes

These canopies were so fun to design and turned out exactly how I imagined.  I’m thrilled!  It’s fun to make string pretty, isn’t it?

Want the inside scoop?

Don’t you love the feeling of knowing something before anyone else does?  Do you want to know about my upcoming patterns before they are released?  Ok, I’ll tell you a secret…

All of my patterns are tested through a testing group on Ravelry.  Because of this, you can see the patterns I’m about to test in my projects page.  It’s true, although I think you have to be a Ravelry member to see them.

Do you want to know another secret?  There’s a new one in my projects right now!

Shhh!  Don’t tell.
