I am very proud of it as it the first pattern I have written – so I hope you enjoy making it !

I designed the banana a while ago for a knitting competition, but I didn’t write the pattern out properly then. So when I came to writing up my notes, they were all a bit confusing, so it took a while to finally write it up. I have tested the pattern by knitting it out again and it doesn’t take too long to knit πŸ™‚

Here is the link to my first ever patternΒ Cabled Banana PatternΒ !

I hope this will soon be one pattern among many πŸ™‚

Happy banana knitting !

The world at your fingertips!

My friend made a joke about how she wished she could hold the world in her hand. What she didn’t know was that I was thinking about how I could make it happen, in a knitted way of course.

I didn’t search for a knitting pattern for it that thoroughly because I wanted to design it myself. I got some inspiration from a book of Christmas baubles and I came up with my own pattern for a sphere world using 5 double pointed needles.

This is the original chart that I used for the first little knitted world ;

Once I had finished it I was so pleased with myself for having designed it all on my own! Β I made two, one for my friend and one for my boyfriend. The first one that I made was slightly smaller than the second one, as you can see below ;

Also the first one (on the right side) had way too small ice caps. I imagine the world will look like this in the future after the ice caps have melted for a few more years!

I am super pleased with my little knitted world and I hope to come up with a pattern soon that I will list on Ravelry!

Here are some more pics of the second world that I made. It’s prettier with a nicer colour of blue for the sea πŸ™‚
