Tyche is a hoodie with kangaroo pockets. It is a raglan pullover, worked top down. Tyche has a textured, knit-purl stitch pattern all over, which is transitioning into stockinette at the hood. The pockets are also knitted in stockinette.
Tyche is rather for intermediate/advanced knitters but if you are a beginner who likes adventures, I advise you to try this project, too, because I inserted video tutorials for the trickiest parts (on how to work the provisional cast on method, kitchener stitch, applied I-cord and for the pocket, too).
Tyche was designed by Mici from Gynka Knitwear at the end of 2017, it was sampled at the beginning of 2018 but has never made to publication ever since. Pattern release: February, 2022.
Pomona is another design from 2017 that was never published before.
It was originally designed by me (Mici) in 2017, and the first sample was made in the first half of 2018. But this design has never made to publication ever since. After moving homes and settling down in another city, I found the sample in one of my boxes, and thought I should deal with it again. I extended the size range from baby to child (up to size 10 y.o.) and added short row shaping options to these sizes for the collar, raglan and hem. The pattern also offers a short and a long version for the sleeves.
The name comes from the Roman Goddess of abundance, and particularly abundance of the cultivated countryside: fruit trees, gardens and orchards. Cultivations are represented by the diagonal lines of the stitch pattern used at the collar, hem and cuffs, and abundance is the plenty variations for short row shaping and sleeves.
The Pomona Sweater is a raglan sleeved baby/child sweater worked top down. The pattern is written in 7 sizes (6-12, 12-18, 18-24 months and 4, 6, 8, 10 years). All sizes can be done with long or short sleeves and the 4 biggest sizes have the option for short row shaping as well. The pattern includes both written instructions and charts. Video and photo tutorials for the trickiest parts (continental cast on method, grafting, short rows, buttons, buttonholes) are also included.
The pattern was tech edited by Heather Storta (her website: https://heatherstorta.com/ ), and test knitted by 5 test knitters from various skill levels.
