Joeli’s Kitchen Designer Bootcamp

I’ve mentioned before that Joeli has been running a bootcamp for inexperienced designers and I’ve found it really helpful. She’s given out lots of useful information and doesn’t mind answering my stupid questions. Not only that, she’s great at building people’s confidence and helping them realised that everyone has the same insecurities.

The bootcamp is due to finish at the end of December. My pattern is almost ready and just waiting for all my test knitters to finish, but there are other great patterns that have already been released, here are some of my favourites so far.

Julianna’s hat shows off her semi solid yarn really well. It’s a simple concept but well executed. I loved watching her periscopes on the development of this pattern. It also comes in  a two colour version with the slipped stitches in one colour, which is a nice touch.

I love the way the cables flow together in Ana’s hat. From the brim to the body and then the decreases. It can be tricky to decrease in pattern but she pulls it off well.

These socks are in a beautiful blue colour and have cables, of course I love them. They have little cables all over the front with lovely wavy cables at the side. I’m also impressed by Jaccqui’s choice of location for the photo shoot.
