Knitting: Potholder
This hot pad is made of stockinette stitch stripes that curl in naturally – finally a project that will use that property of stockinette stitch to an advantage! The stripes are joined together as you go, only the last one
Knitting: Softies - Other
I wonder if there’s actually anyone out there who would like or need to make a Goofy Goober? Or am I the only one who’s son wanted one badly?
Crochet: Animal Toy
This kitty is much more easy to make than it looks like. Only single crochet is used, and it is made of one rectangle and two simple tubes. I hope it can be a great project for new crocheters.
Knitting: Cowl
This is a very soft cowl with exquisite yet slightly more advanced lace pattern. I used two yarns held together (Alchemy’s Haiku would be a perfect substitute for Kid Seta). But you can use virtually any yarn to make it, adjusting number of stitches to cast on.
Knitting: Animal Toy
This toy uses stitches with different textures to stimulate the development of a baby’s tactile sense, which is very important in the early months. It exploits the self-striping pattern of the yarn as a cue to change stitch patterns.
Knitting: Dress
This dress is knitted top-down all in one piece, in the round. It’s inspired by the look of Clara and this project.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Errata - for downloads before 20th Nov 2011
Knitting: Baby Blanket
A quick project on larger needles, using two strands of yarn. I was inspired to make it as my good friend was having a baby, and the nursery theme was “In the Woods”.
Knitting: Hats - Other
Pattern for all Naruto fans!
Crochet: Beanie, Toque
This easy pattern can be finished while watching one movies and produces an all-time classic fishnet beanie.
