Last year, when Susannah told me she had purchased WOOLganics that spark just about burst. It lit up so bright it was like a catherine wheel, it simply could not be ignored anymore. And so I knit this.
Maybe this photo will help you a little bit more..
And I so love it. See this gorgeous wee pink one. That's in a newborn size and is shown over the small bloom dress. How cute is that! And the yarn, well, it's the new WOOLganics 4ply/fingering weight which is all a bit lovely and lush. How much fun I had knitting this!
The bigger yellow one is a 23" and it's knit with size 8 lengths in the 8ply/dk weight.
So yes, the pattern will come in both 4ply/fingering and 8ply/dk sizings from 15-30" chest size and is being released to help celebrate the re-launch of WOOLganics. The pattern is written with WOOLganics yarns in mind but you can substitute.
You see, I want the name to tie in with the bloom, but I don't want to call it the bloom cardigan. Blossom seemed like the obvious choice but a fellow Aussie designer has a pattern called the Blossom bolero, so I think that's out. (Check it out by the way, it's a very cute pattern!)
And so I have a pattern without a name. You see my problem.
So I'm throwing it out to you readers.
Give me a name for this sweet cardigan.
A name that compliments and works with bloom.
GOSH! Look how much Lily has grown! This bloom is the largest size, it was a dress on her when the pattern was released.
Suggest away. I have a couple more patterns to come to compliment bloom so I am looking for a bouquet of names and we hope to be able to give away more than one gift pack and choose some future pattern names.
I'll leave the competition open for a week or so. That should take us pretty close to the pattern release date.
Perfect. I'll be more specific with a closing date and add it here when I'm more sure of the release date.
Once a name is suggested, take that entry as belonging to that person, and please do not re-suggest the name.
Now get your thinking caps on!
