Introducing Wanda

Image

Here it is! The first Trixie Rocket Designs pattern is available for purchase. Wanda is a vintage inspired cropped cardigan with raglan sleeves, knit entirely in garter stitch. It’s absolutely perfect for beginners, or for more experienced knitters who want a quick project that will result in a versatile cover up.

The pattern will be available as a download on Ravelry and is available in print. Hopefully, e-copies will be available from this blog very soon but, in the meantime, you can email trixierocketdesigns@gmail.com if you would like to order one via email.

As mentioned, I’ll be running a competition to celebrate Wanda’s debut. The focus will be on individual interpretations of the pattern: adding design elements, creative yarn choices or simply imaginative styling of the completed garment. The best* interpretation of the pattern will win a super exciting prize: an exclusive pattern designed to fit your measurements and style, just for you!

Check back soon for more details, as well as tips on how to knit and wear Wanda.
