Indie Design GAL: Home

This is part of my on-going Indie Designer Gift-A-Long 2017 series. Starting November 21st I am highlighting some patterns from my fellow designers also participating in the event! Each post will showcase 5-6 different designers and their patterns.

Don’t forget to join in the fun, we’re all over here chatting up a storm (when our fingers aren’t flying that is).

Fancy Hen by Ella Austin

From the pattern description:
Fancy Hen makes a cheerful addition to the home. The colourwork design is inspired by patterned ceramic tiles and the flower motif is similar to traditional fairisle designs.

Uses approximately 528 yds of DK weight yarn.

Christmas Stockings by Faye Kennington

From the pattern description:
With 24 colourwork charts to mix and match, this pattern offers 512 different possible options for customizing your own stocking. And that’s even before you take colour combinations into account! The stockings are worked toe-up with a solid colour toe and a stranded foot.

Uses approximately 220 yds of worsted weight yarn.

Sea Oak by Kate Bostwick

From the pattern description:
This decorative throw pillow cover features a cable motif down one side of the front and simple stockinette everywhere else. The pillow is worked flat, in one piece. The bottom of the back is worked first in stockinette stitch, followed by the cabled front and finally the top of the back in stockinette again.

Uses approximately 500 yds of worsted weight yarn.

Firth Waves Cushion by Jessie McKitrick

From the pattern description:
Evoking the natural rhythm of a “firth”, an inlet or bay, the fair isle pattern employed by this cushion will relax and impress anyone who views it. Knit in a palette of gorgeous blues, a pop of an alternate color is knitted with a third strand, or added later by duplicate stitch.

Uses approximately 1210 yds of worsted weight yarn.

Framed Cables Baby Blanket by Helen Gipson

From the pattern description:
The all-over twisty twirly travelling cable design is as pretty as a picture framed between simple borders. Much easier and intuitive to knit than it looks, this blanket will make a much cherished gift.

Uses approximately 530-700 yds of aran weight yarn

A note: I take care to not highlight the same pattern as previous years, so do be sure to check out the GAL 2016 series of posts. Many of those will also be eligible this year for the GAL.
