I’ve never had a dyer do a custom color for one of my designs 🤗 I was so honored when Rachel made the suggestion to do one for our December collab! This STUNNING blue color will be available in her DK + Mohair bases for the #rachelraglan release coming out next month! Can’t wait to show y’all more of this one 🤗💕🥳🥰 #ritualdyes #bornandraisedknits #slipstitch #knittingproject #wip #strandedknitting #handdyedyarn #indiedyer #knitstagram
This smile on my face is cause the #redmoonsweater is out on both of my pattern platforms > #ravelry and @themakingthingsapp! I’m also smiling ear to ear because MT gave me the opportunity to talk about one of my favorite things: size inclusive design! I have a continuing blog series on the site about grading and designing for women of all shapes and sizes. Here’s a little taste of the first post in my series:
My brand should have always been about inclusiveness, specifically regarding size. I design patterns that are fun to knit, but my true goal in designing is to create clothing that makes women feel powerful and sexy, and those attributes belong to ALL women. Not just women of a “certain” size. When I started the process of adding new sizes to my patterns, I knew I wanted the general shape of the garment to be the same throughout, but I needed the fit to change with the body. Length needs to be adjusted to accommodate a larger bust, short rows need to be added in the shoulder shaping—each size needs its own special adjustment to make the garment fit in the most flattering way for all body types.

🙏🙏 PLEASE READ ME
California has done its worst and has taken the home and dye studio of one of my favorite people: Cathy of @hookerscorner. She is the most supportive, kind and talented woman and I simply cannot imagine what she and her family are experiencing right now.
Living here is very difficult, and night’s like the last one are very scary for us here in CA. We had a red flag warning in place that someone was not abiding by, and a whole entire town was completely destroyed. Wildfires are unlike any other disaster as we have absolutely no way to prepare for them or defend our homes against them. It’s odd living here and seeing these fires all around you without every experiencing one yourself or knowing someone that has had their home taken. It’s really fucking real now and it’s scary as hell.
I am trying to think of as many ways as possible to help Cathy and her family, and at the moment I want to do a little pattern drive so I can make a larger donation to her Go Fund Me. If you want to donate now and don’t need a pattern, the link is up in my stories. If you want to donate and get a pattern, it’s happening now so GO FOR IT! I will make a donation on Monday with 100% of everything ever going to the Go Fund Me campaign! Please take a moment and consider what it’s like to go through something like this and let’s help restore this amazing woman’s future! #knittersofinstagram #indiedyer #handdyedyarn #knitstagram
