Presenting... Bobblicious

Now that Knitty is up, here she is. My pattern, Bobblicious. I hope you enjoy knitting and wearing her as much as I do.

I thoroughly enjoyed designing this project, in fact, so much so that I'm hoping to finish another design - once I feel brave enough to pick it up again.

hi, sweetpea, I live in the UK too and like knitting but find yarn chioces here fairly limited( and expensive) compared to the US. Can you tell me where you get your yarns ?

Lolly said...

Congratulations, Estee! I stopped by yesterday to tell you, but your blog was down :( Nice to see you back up though!

Another big congrats on the pattern!

Mary said...

I think that is such a cool pattern, and looks great on you. Great job, and congratulations!

iSeL said...

That is your design??
Wow!!! Congratulations. It's gorgeous. :D

Roxy said...

This is a fantastic pattern -- I love it, thank you for your creativity.

Rachel said...

This is a great pattern! My vision for it is for use when you're sitting under a blanket on a chilly day, knitting, but because you need your arms free, your upper body doesn't get the benefit of the blanket's coziness. Enter Bobblicious. I'm so excited to start it (right after Christmas)! Thank you for this great contribution.

Hi SweetPea,
I love the pattern, it is very creative! I've started to attempt to make it , but it seems as if it will not be wide enough. Are you sure that I only cast-on 55 sts? Please respond.... Wallacecon@aol.com
Thanks in advance!!!!!!

Mandy said...

Estee, I saw your pattern and loved it so much that I immediatly took my WH out and said "Buy me this yarn....please!!!!" and of course, since he is my WH, he did and I finally got it knitted up last night. I love it!!!!
Thanks again!

I love this bobblicious pattern! I made it in the "Wheat" colour...it's gorgeous! I am not ready to make my own patterns so I wondered if you have thought of a shell with bobbles to match? I am leaving on a road trip and would like to knit the shell in the same colour but a thinner yarn...on the way and wear it for Christmas. B

SweetPeaknits said...

Hi B - I would love to see a picture of your Bobblicious. My contact details are at the bottom of the pattern at Knitty.

I would love to help you with a shell, but forgive me, what is a shell?

B said...

Estee, A shell is sort of a tank top, sleeveless, scoop or cowl neck. My Bobblitious is about 10" from through, I will take a picture when I get back from the trip. I have the stockinette on the right side as I wanted a smoother look for evening and it looked in the picture of your red one that you have 6 rows of bobbles, so that's what I did too. So about the Shell...I was thinking about having the RS be reverse stockinette to tie in with the bobbles and maybe a knit edge. I'm sure you can envision the perfect match...if you do, I'm waiting....B PS this is the only way it shows to get in touch with you under your pattern. My email is enclosed I am in Phoenix, AZ USA PPS Happy Channukah!

SweetPeaknits said...

B - this could take me a while to design. It might be worth looking for a tank pattern and playing with that yourself. In the meantime, I'll try and draw something up for you and posting it on here.

I knit the Bobblicious on the way to Canada for the holidays. It didn't come out like your pics. It seems more like a shrug. Are you sure that I only needed to CO 55 sts? Please check out my blog b/c I'm unsure how to post the pics on here. Thanks! Cerella

Cerella said...

Thanks for responding so quickly! :) I did check to make sure that I had 55 sts after the bobbles so it must be the gauge. I am so bad....I NEVER check the gauge. Shame on me!!!! :) I'll be sure to email a pic when I make my next Bobblicious! Thanks Estee!!!

suzq said...

I just finished your shrug. I love it!!!! I live in the south of the USA and I think I might have to move just so Ill have more chances to wear it. Bravo for you!!!!

SweetPeaknits said...

suzq - well done and enjoy wearing it. I'd love to see a picture of your bobblicious.
