Premium Pattern-- K-Pop Mask Knit Pattern





Are you a K-Pop fan? Then you are in good company cause I am an OG (original) K-popper. I guess it helps that I'm also of Korean decent so my parents listened to Korean music and I just grew up listening to it.

If you have missed out on the original K-Pop Mask (crochet version), you can find it HERE. It is a black K-Pop mask with an optional bear motif made using acrylic yarn.

The K-Pop Mask in this blog post is a knit pattern with a heart motif. Taking those with sensitive skin into consideration, I decided to design this mask with Lion Brand's 24/7 Cotton yarn. The mask is more rigid with this yarn so if you decide to knit this one and don't necessarily have sensitive skin, you can choose to knit with a different yarn that's close to the given gauge for this pattern.

I want to note here before you decide to buy this premium pattern that the K-Pop Masks (crochet and knit) are in no way, shape or form able to protect you against the Coronavirus. IT WILL NOT PROTECT YOU FROM THE CORONAVIRUS. This mask is strictly a K-Pop fan mask. 

PATTERN

To purchase this pattern, please visit Etsy.
To pin this for later, visit Pinterest.


I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty late in the game with becoming a fan of BTS. I've always been more stuck with the older K-Pop groups and Eric Nam (of course). If you don't follow me on Instagram then you probably didn't see this photo: 


OR this one:


YES! I finally met my favorite K-Pop artist of all time last month and gave him a mostly Tunisian crochet blanket of his logo that I personally made for him. 

How did it feel to meet the K-Pop artist I admire the most? Pretty surreal! I had so much to say and so little time. I literally blanked out and tried to spat out most of the important things I wanted to tell him. But the one thing I forgot to tell him was my name! HAHAHA. Will he remember my face? I have no idea but I truly hope that he will.



In the comments below, let me know who your favorite K-Pop artist is! I would love to know!

Until next time, happy knitting!

Premium Knit Pattern-- Homeschooled Cardigan






Wow! It has been quite a journey designing and having this pattern tested. The first time I shared the Homeschooled Cardigan on any of my social platforms was on October 20, 2019 and this was a few weeks after finishing it. The one I am wearing in the pictures on this post was the second time designing this particular garment. I still have the original one in the house but wear the second one I knitted the most, mainly because it fits a lot better on me.

To purchase this knit pattern, you can visit my Etsy or Ravelry stores.


This cardigan has been named the Homeschooled Cardigan. If you follow me on Instagram or have read my About Me page on my blog, you probably figured out that I am not only a fiber artist but also a homeschooling mother to three kids. When homeschool was in session, I knitted to keep my hands busy and this is what came out!


The design itself is very basic in nature and it truly is a quick knit for a cardigan. The whole body portion of the garment is knitted from the bottom up. It is knitted up to the underarms and then split into three sections- front right, back, front left. After the body panel is complete, the arms and collar are knitted and sewn on.


The testing group for this cardigan was the most amazing group of girls I have worked with since becoming a designer. They all raved about the pattern and more than half of them have made two or more of the cardigan. I was so, so grateful for all the love they gave this cardigan pattern and I hope that it will be a pattern that you decide to take a chance on and try and love.


Happy knitting!
