Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The socks are interesting but not overwhelming to knit. The structure of the sock is basic top down, but you could turn the pattern around and start from the toe.
Knitting: Cuffs
Knitting Anni Cuffs is a fun little project. They are simple to knit, and a perfect way to get you started on stranded knitting. The floats are short and there is no need to weave your stitches on the wrong side.
Knitting: Cardigan
Aada is worked flat in one piece up to the armholes after which the back and fronts are worked separately. The sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up and then sewn in.
Knitting: Animal Toy
This happy little rabbit is first knitted, then stuffed with fleece or wool and felted by hand to the desired size and feel. The wool applique and embroidery will bring out the joyful character.
Knitting: Bonnet
A bit of lace and soft, silky yarn for a little baby!
Knitting: Mittens
These mittens were inspired by the thick woven, woollen coverlets (raanu’s) of the north. These are warm and toasty because they are made using stranded knitting throughout.
Knitting: Cardigan, Hats - Other
It began with a little hat with a visor. The little hat needed a jacket to match so I searched for an interesting detail to add and once I decided on the striped piping, I knew Little Pete was all set to sail the seven seas.
Knitting: Mittens
These mittens were inspired by the traditional zigzag-patterned mittens from Rovaniemi. The pattern on the top side (the palm side is plain) is created with an unusual technique. The pattern colors are not carried along as in stranded knitting; nor is the pattern done using intarsia - these mittens have a clever and unique technique of their own.
Knitting: Cardigan
Minni is knitted sideways with fingering weight wool and small 2,5 mm (US1.5) needles to produce a light and warm cardigan. After the knitting is done, only side seams are left to graft together with kitchener stitch.
