* Blythe sweather and rectangle skirt “pattern”

Posted on January 20th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Blythe.


My first sweater, in any scale. It took me about 3 evenings of work, on size 2 needles with the pink cupcake yarn. I got the pattern from woolyrockers via the This is Blythe forum. I didn’t put the velcro on the back so that maybe she can wear it backwards over a shell or something. We’ll see. I’m super happy with it. And people say redheads can’t wear pink!

The skirt is the very first craftlog original Blythe pattern. I’m calling it a rectangle skirt. I whipped it up so Mark would stop calling her Blythe-no-pants. Take a 4.25 inch x 3.25 inch rectangle of ultrasuede (felt would probably also work). Sew a snap in the top right hand corner and the mate in the top left hand corner on the opposite face of the fabric. It’s pretty versatile for being a rectangle and a snap. If you snap it right around the waist, it goes out into an A-line. If you pull it down to hug the hips, it’s more of a pencil skirt (like in the picture above). It’s a slitted skirt if you pull the open side around front. Of course, you could also cut it a bit shorter if you like, but after the last dress I made, Blythe demanded something more modest. Although when in A-line mode, I wouldn’t recommend taking pictures from behind…

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
