Today I want to welcome back the wonderfully talented Megan Grewal. You may remember Megan from her lovely Union Suit pattern I tested a couple of months back, but I thought you might like to know a bit more about this talented designer.
Megan is a Canadian girl that is thankful for the long & snowy winters that provide her with lots of time to knit warm things for her family. She has spent many years quilting & sewing women's apparel which has helped her take her knitting to a whole new level, however, nothing beats two needles and some yarn! She is currently teaching her 8 children at home and knitting in her "spare" time. You can catch up on her knitting life at: thewitknit.
Megan has just recently released another set of beautiful patterns: the Organic Seasons Jacket and the Organic Seasons Blanket. See, I am not the only one in love with the seasons! I have been eyeing these patterns since I first saw her working on them. (on her ravelry projects page that I tend to stalk...) I can just see K in an autumn jacket, C in a spring and Baby L in a winter one. Couldn't you?! It works out great because the jacket pattern goes from size 3 months up to 10 years old. I think the blanket would be a great throw for my rocking chair, too.
Here's some more information on the patterns:
“The Organic Seasons Jacket is the complimentary piece for the Organic Seasons
Blanket. This hooded jacket is worked seamlessly & flat from the bottom up, sleeves in the round & then body and sleeves are attached and worked together with raglan shaping. Hood is knit seamlessly from the neck up with shaping at the back and then grafted at the top. This sweet jacket features an asymmetrical front closure with button holes & buttons or toggles. The wave pattern is worked throughout with a border on the bottom featuring the seasonal motif of your choice. Borders are worked by picking up stitches along the front and hood edges. There is 2-5” (5-12.5cm) positive ease for comfort & a generous fit.
The Organic Seasons Jacket is practical & sweet and perfect for any little one.”

“The Organic Seasons Blanket is the complimentary piece to the Organic Seasons Jacket. This quintessential blanket is worked seamlessly, in the round, from the center out. It begins with a wave pattern representing waves/wind/years and has 5 border options; Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter, or, a season per side (shown in photos). Inner & outer borders are worked to separate the wave pattern from the motif border. The blanket comes in 3 sizes: lovie, stroller and crib.”
