Pattern Details

Blue Betty was born out of a desire for a colorwork sweater that would be flattering to every body type. The sweater is worked in one piece from the bottom up, in the round up to the neck shaping and back and forth after that. The only finishing is grafting underarm sts and knitting the ribbed neckband. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic knitting and purling Basic increases and decreases Stranded colorwork Grafting (Kitchener stitch) Picking up stitches for neckband GAUGE GAUGE: 19 sts/26 rows = 4 inches/10 cm in stockinette stitch on larger needles.

I gravitate toward designs with clean lines and contemporary (but not too contemporary!) stylings. I strive to make my designs available to knitters in as wide a range of sizes as possible. Things I love: cables, simple lace, strong lines, designs that look far more complicated to make than they actually are, and beautiful, saturated colors complementing each other in stripes or colorwork. Besides designing, I am also an aspiring fiction writer. I work on my novels for kids and young adults when I'’m not knitting as fast as my hands will go.
