Make Something Mad

By which I mean crazy! Or not even crazy, just a bit wacky. This year I fancy making something not normally seen and that few would dare wear. I’m thinking maximum embarrassment to kids when collecting them from school.

I’m thinking pastel striped balaclava.

I’m thinking capeline tabard – not sure what that is but have two patterns I am crazy about.

I’m thinking head-to-toe layers of knits


Are you thinking what I’m thinking? I don’t know what was going on at Sirdar that season, but I thank you for it.

I have some ideas for my varied sleeve jumper.

I have also been looking at more vintage fair isle patterns and am really keen to make one. I love 1940’s beige and grey just as much as 1970’s brown and orange. What to choose? Some mpre photos and ideas for you next time. Keep creating crazy!
