Knitting: Baby Blanket
Colorful stripes in garter stitch give this baby blanket cheer and warmth. While the pattern looks complicated, every row is the same simple knit-purl sequence. The fun is in the selection of colors for the stripe. I chose five rainbow colors, you’re welcome to use more or fewer.
Feather-weight poncho in stockinette stitch featuring a garter band across the bottom edge. This simple poncho is made from a rectangle folded in half and seamed. A loose turtleneck is created by picking up and knitting around the neck opening. This lightweight and cozy wrap can be styled any number of ways by spinning it around the body.
Timeless style; this wrap was first designed in 2008. The fashion for wraps has come back around. Knit a simple rectangle with armholes, add exaggerated braid cables and bold ribbing and you have a wrap. You’ll be toasty warm with the garment worn on or off the shoulders.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Inspired by the Garter Trap, the Striped Trap is a stockinette stitch alternative. This trapezoidal shawl uses stripes of a solid and busy multi colored yarn. This project is a sure thing to keep your hands busy while your mind is elsewhere. Wear it any way you choose; long and loose or tied up cozily.
