Today I am showcasing my Audrey and Ivy beanie patterns. Personally, this is one of my favourite designs and I hope you will like it too.
It is an 8ply Beret style Beanie which is worked in an easy block stitch and can be worn several ways. Wear it as a Beret, a slouchy Beanie or turn up the brim to create a firmer fit Beanie. The patterns include sizes 2 years through to ladies, and it requires just one 100g ball of acrylic yarn (although you could easily use a pure wool yarn if you prefer).
The difference between these two patterns is that Audrey is worked on a pair of needles and seemed, while Ivy is worked in the round, on a set of needles, so doesn’t require a seam. I have both preferences covered with this one!

Happy knitting (and go North Melbourne!)
My first lot of knitting kits are now available online – woo-hoo!
I currently have kits for beanies, slippers and a neck scarf, in a variety of yarns, and I will be adding more styles over the coming weeks and months.
Since the modern yarns don’t always fall into the old ply system, it can be confusing working out which pattern you can use with which yarn. I hope that by offering these kits, it will simplify the process for you. Each kit contains a printed pattern, along with the yarn required to knit one item. The packaging isn’t fancy but the cardboard box is recyclable and I think that’s more important than being pretty.
These kits can be posted worldwide and so there are no surprises when deciding if the kit is right for you, the listed price on my website includes postage to various locations around the world.
To see what kits are currently on offer, please visit the following link to search the knitting kits available, either by yarn, or by project type, and make sure you keep coming back to see what new styles become available:

The pattern includes 5 sizes and you can get all the important details here: http://www.knittingpatternsonline.com.au/Ivory.html
