Made by Mabel

My knitting range consists of making scarves. I can make short ones, long ones, wide ones and thin ones, but they will always be just a scarf. In contrast, my mother was a able to make us the most complicated jumpers with colours and all sorts of things, back in the day when no one had ever heard of a fleece.

If you are a bit nostalgic for those lovely old-fashioned knits, check out Made by Mabel. The designs remind me of the sweaters my mother used to make. Each piece is handcrafted, often knitted by hand in the UK. The big difference to the sweaters of my childhood and the ones by Made by Mabel, is that my jumpers were scratchy, while these ones are made out of very soft wool. Even little Violette, who hates anything scratchy, approves.

Hi Emilie,
I love the design and would like to buy a sweater for my daughter. How does the size fit? My daughter is 3 and I am not sure if I should go one size up or down.

I would go one size up, just to be on the safe side!

Hi, in answer to Simone’s comment regarding sizing I can send you measurements if you like, just contact via FB or website. They have been designed though to look good big or small as with all our garments so they can be worn for as long as possible.
Looking forward to hearing from you 🙂 x
