Have I mentioned that we LOVE working with talented new designers? We are thrilled to offer a platform to help them grow their following, and their patterns are usually fresh and on-trend. This next designer is no exception!
Earlier in the week we revealed We Found Wonderland, and engaging crochet design by Will Spargur. Now it’s time to reveal the knitting pattern!
Curiosity Leads to Trouble by Katherine Jewell Harris
Finished cowlette is 24″ in diameter, with a 10″ diameter neck opening, and it’s designed to work with both animal fibers and non-animal fibers alike.
It also offers a narrow neck and wide neck version to give an extra couple of inches in the opening.
“Curiosity often leads to trouble…” muses Alice as she enters the rabbit-hole to Wonderland. Curiosity also often leads to new shapes, new techniques, and new fun exploring our craft! This cowl is a top down half pi cowlette that conveniently wears like a cowl while styling like a shawl, so it’ll stay in place whether you’re chatting with a Caterpillar, walking through Tulgey Woods, or enjoying a tea party with friends. Enjoy wandering through Wonderland with all of your Knit Dizzney friends (and all other Alice loving crafters too!). And as an added bonus, this design looks lovely in all 3 of our colorways!
It is evident that, like the rest of us, Katherine is a avid Disney and Alice fan. Each section of this pattern is named and embraces Alice’s many adventures in Wonderland, in chronological order from the top down!
These first 2 sections are called:
Daydreams and Daisy Chains
I Wish I Hadn’t Cried So Much
These 3 sections are entitled:
O Oysters Come and Walk With Me
I’m not a Weed
Clean Cup! Clean Cup!
There’s even an darling little rabbit tushie!
Katherine is afraid that she may have overthought a little bit while designing “Curiosity Leads to Trouble”, but she admits she had waaay too much fun designing it. And it shows! We we think it’s perfect, and appreciate it when designers take the time to make their pattern resonate with a fan base and are a fan of what their finished product.
You can find Curiosity Leads to Trouble in Katherine’s Ravelry Store where it retails for $7.00. But with coupon code Alice2020, Knit Dizzney participants get 50% off the pattern. Coupon code is good until September 30, 2020. Can’t wait to see what other amazing patterns she designs!
Kathrine Harris is an avid knitter and collector and curator of a large stash of brightly colored yarns. Her love of indie dyed yarns and test knitting for other designers has led her to a love for designing. From a love of all things knitting and yarn related and the encouragement of all of her industry friends comes a collection of fun and often nerdy designs full of textures, color, and love. Katherine is the daughter of an immigrant and a soldier, the spouse of a retired Marine (and current financial advisor), the mother of two epic bio kids, the amazingly fortunate bonus mom to one of the most beautiful souls she has ever known, and the lucky friend of so many people in the knitting/yarn world. She is a lover of all things Star Wars and Disney, a lover of Hogwarts, superfan of movies, and admits to repeat binge watcher of the Office. Even though she has lived in various locations around the United States, she currently resides in beautiful Southern California.
Katherine’s first pattern, “Cherish the Memory” was published in June 2019 to honor her dad and his fight with dementia. All proceeds from the first quarter were donated to the Alzheimers Association. She donated $800 from pattern sales and the auction of her original sample! Wow!
