Sunny – new free pattern

by Ewelina Murach on June 30, 2015

I was going to show you a cardigan I made for my daughter, but I have changed my mind – the cardigan will have to wait a bit.

Instead, I’ll show you Sunny:

Sunny by Ewelina Murach

Yes, it does look familiar – it’s an adult version of Sunny T-shirt. I made it about a year and a half ago, and the photos were taken last August during my holiday in Poland, but the little people in my house kept me so busy I’m only finishing the pattern now.

Just as the kids’ version, Sunny has a seamless, top-down construction, with short rows used to raise the back of the neck, and yoke increases incorporated in the stitch pattern. The neck short rows are optional, so if you do not mind the back of the neck being the same depth as the front, you can skip the short row section. Optional waist shaping is achieved simply by changing  needle size, and body length can be easily adjusted.

Sizes available: 75 (80, 85, 90, 96, 102, 105, 112, 119) cm/ 29.5 (31.5, 33.5, 35.5, 37.75, 40.25, 41.5, 44, 46.75) in.

Although the instructions end on size 119 cm/ 46.75 in, you can easily adapt the pattern to make sizes 126 and 133 cm/ 49.5 and 52.5 in, using sport or DK yarn, instead of fingering yarn used for the other sizes.

Here are some more pictures:

And did I mention the pattern is going to be free to all the lovely people who have subscribed to my email updates? As soon as it’s ready, I will email you and let you know how you can download it.

Baby news and new knits

by Ewelina Murach on June 2, 2015

Baby news

I haven’t been here for a while, but there was a reason: in November a lovely little person joined our family. Meet Tom. (He’s super cute, isn’t he?)

New pattern: Leaf Lace Cardigan

I haven’t been able to knit much recently, but I managed to make three cardigans for the Big Sister.

The first one is Leaf Lace Cardigan – a light cardigan made in Malabrigo Sock in Lettuce, with simple top down raglan construction, and not that simple lace pattern at the back. It was fun to knit – I couldn’t put it down. Even when I slept only 3-4 hours a night, before Tom started sleeping through the night, I couldn’t help knitting just a few rows whenever I got up to feed him at night.ewelina murach  leaf lace cardi

It took long, but the pattern has already been tested and tech edited, and will be available on Ravelry and Craftsy from tomorrow (June 3rd 2015). An adult version will be available too – it still needs testing. You can get a 15% discount code for Leaf Lace Cardigan (kids’) or another pattern of your choice from my Ravelry store – just sign up for my email updates here (the code will start working tomorrow, after the pattern has been released on Ravelry).

I’ll write about the other 2 cardigans in the next post. See you then.

Even more flowers!

July 21, 2014

  I haven’t posted anything for months – but now I’m back, and I’m going to show you two most challenging patterns I have ever written: adult versions of Flower Cardigan and Flower Sweater. My brain still hurts. The first of the two patterns is Flower Cardigan. At first, I thought I’d just use the […]

Flowers again

October 1, 2013

I had a picture of this cardigan in my mind for about 2 or 3 years, but the idea of actually knitting it, sizing and writing a pattern seemed so scary! I had never tried this type of construction, and had no idea how to proceed after the flower at the back would be finished. […]

How to knit short rows part 1: wrap and turn method

March 13, 2013

One of my favourite knitting techniques, which I use it in most of my patterns, are short rows. They are used to add extra fabric where you need it, for example: to raise the back of the neck in a garment with a round yoke (short rows are represented by the blue dashed lines): to add […]

Feather Pullover – finished at last!

Now it’s definitely finished. I am starting testing it tomorrow, in my group on Ravelry: Ewelina Murach Designs. I have also created a new thread in the group forum: […]
