We can’t even handle the coolness factor of this crochet pattern…
Do you love house plants? Cool.
Do you love umbrellas? Amazing.
Do you love the idea of an umbrella holding a plant? Yeah, we do too.

We chose this knitted vest for two reasons:

  1. Our manager of education and programs, Megan Patterson is nearly certain her very talented mum knitted this very same pattern circa 1986. And Peg remembers it was cute.
  2. Doesn’t everyone need a summer sweater vest with built in air conditioned holes? Yes, obviously.

Classic knitted slippers.

Everyone in your family needs a pair because they are the best.

And you can all laugh and laugh as you do cool slides across the kitchen floor because absolutely nothing is more fun for the family than sliding across the kitchen floor in soft, hand-knit slippers.

Nothing says wedding guest like a crochet necktie. Choose from tweed or plain.

Heck, just make them both!! There is always going to be a wedding to attend…

Quite possibly the best doll knit wear patterns we have ever laid eyes on. Leave it to 1972 to remind our dolls how to rock it on the ski slopes.

Also, why can’t this pattern include instructions to knit in human sizes? We’d make and wear it all!
