Two New MIY Collection Patterns & Kits

Well overdue, I finally launched 2 new MIY Collection patterns at last week’s Knitting & Stitching show and they’re now also available online from the MIY Collection Pattern Shop.

The first is the Kelham, the ultimate A-line skirt pattern.

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t suit an a-line skirt shape and the Kelham includes:

  • 7 sizes (based on body measurements not confusing dress sizes)
  • 2 different ways to finish the waist (waistband or waist facing)
  • 2 length options marked on the pattern
  • 3 style variations (completely plain, with pockets or with a CF pleat).

There’s so much you can do with an a-line skirt pattern and it will look great in a range of fabrics from cotton poplin, linen, denim, corduroy or lightweight wool.

The second pattern is the Wisewood cowl neck dress and top.

I love a draped cowl neck, they’re so flattering and easy to wear and this pattern went down a storm at the Knitting & Stitching show.

Both top and dress versions are included in the pattern as well as:

  • 8 sizesΒ (based on body measurements not confusing dress sizes)
  • 2 depths of cowl
  • 2 different ways to finish the deeper cowl
  • sleeved and sleeveless versions.

This one is a pattern for stretch knits and works in a wide variety; a viscose jersey will give you a beautifully draped lightweight version – great for tops, a good quality ponte roma (try and find one with viscose rather than polyester) will result in a dramatic sculptural effect in a gorgeous cosy dress.

Another exciting launch at the show was MIY Collection Kits. Including a pattern, carefully selected beautiful quality fabric appropriate for the pattern in a quantity to allow for shrinkage in pre-washing and matching colour thread. Kits are available for the following patterns:

They will be available online just as soon as I’ve photographed them!
