The Little Rascals Patterns

On Friday June 18th Julia released The Little Rascals! The Little Rascals e-book is a collection of 3 unisex, easy to knit, seamless (topdown) and versatile patterns. They’re great for wearing out and about and for mucking around in the backyard.

The Little Rascals are all v-necked garments (which makes popping on a bib easy if necessary)       

Little Hoodlum (jersey)
 There are a variety of options included in the pattern:

 - knitting a hood or collar

 - moss/seed or garter stitch edge

 - how to knit a contrast band around the edge

 - wide sleeves or tapered

Sizings range from newborn up to 10 years (15-28 inch chest) and the patterns can be knit in either 8ply/DK or 10ply/worsted weight yarn.

Hotshot (vestee)
 The pattern also includes a printer friendly version at the end - so it’s possible to download the full pdf with all the info and pretty pictures, but if you prefer to save paper and ink simply print the last few pages of the pdf.
 You can purchase the pattern by clicking the buy now button on Julia's 'Patterns' page here, or via Ravelry here

The price is $7USD and purchases are made via paypal. You'll be sent a pdf of the pattern.

 You can contact Julia if you have any other questions about the pattern or purchasing it. Julia is able to email it to purchasers with NZ bank accounts who'd prefer to pay via internet banking.

Young Einstein
 Coco Kids are also available for custom orders for any of The Little Rascals -  feel free to contact any of the Coco Kids team to enquire about getting one knit for you.

 Lifetime Cottage Licenses are available (however they're not yet available in NZ) - please email Julia for more information if you are interested in knitting these to sell.

Milo Mitts

I have recently added Milo Mitts by Sheryl Greenfield to my repertoire of custom knits. These are really cute little fingerless mittens that are available in sizes 1, 2 and 4 - although they are very stretchy, so each size can be worn for  a long time (my eight year old could fit the size 4 pink ones I knitted for a customer the other day!).  The pink ones have been knit with an owl cable, but other cables can be substituted as well, to match the cable on any Milo vest (both Kate and Julia are able to knit Milo vests).

Contact Ali to order these very cute wee mitts. For a limited time I am offering these at $15 per pair, including postage.
