Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Called the Citrus Hat for the way the decreases create the appearance of a citrus fruit, this is a pretty basic hat pattern that works well with pretty much any yarn and can fit multiple head sizes.
Knitting: Cowl
A slipped stitch cowl or infinity scarf knit from two strands of fingering weight yarn or one strand of worsted weight yarn - or any yarn you like! Great for handspun and ideal for multiple skeins of sock yarn blended together into a gradient.
Knitting: Hanging Ornament
Birds are the perfect ornament for a winter holiday tree and can also be used to decorate with a spring theme. After searching without success for a pattern that would be just right, I cobbled together my own.
Knitting: Scarf
This pattern was designed to use the full amount of a special, soft yarn that you want to wear around your neck - especially when you don’t have enough of that yarn for a real scarf but a cowl would give you leftovers. It’s a great pattern for showing off the texture of handspun yarn or to use that small ball of luxury fiber you couldn’t pass up.
Knitting: Cowl
A super-quick, very easy cowl in a 2 x 1 ribbed pattern. The ribbing keeps the cowl from flopping, and it can also be folded over to adjust the height for weather conditions. Ideal for showing off the texture of handspun yarn and easily adjustable to any weight of yarn. And, the ribbed pattern matches the ribbing in the Maine Morning Mitts by C...
Knitting: Purse / Handbag
A simple bag, just big enough for wallet, keys, and sunglasses. It comes with a long i-cord strap, making it just perfect for running about town on those summer days when you find yourself without pockets.
Knitting: Bib
A simple baby bib pattern that would show off the beauty of stockinette stitch, for those of us who may prefer its smoothness to the texture of garter stitch.
Knitting: Bag - Other
Actually, calling this a pattern is overstating it a bit. It’s a knitting recipe. But it’s a great project for stashbusting small amounts of yarn, and makes very useful little bags for any purpose you can dream up, so having an entry for the recipe in the Ravelry database seemed like a worthwhile thing.
