Knitting: Slippers
This is a super fast EASY and inexpensive project and great for last-minute gifting.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat is so simple and so fast it will become your best pattern friend!
Knitting: Baby Blanket
This is an easy level pattern. I find it helpful to place a ring marker before each square so that the place for switching from knitting to purling is easier to see. To do this requires 9 ring markers.
Knitting: Animal Toy
This is a highly textured toy beloved by many infants. It is soft, machine washable, absorbent, and easy for little fingers to grasp. Because the ears often end up in little mouths, you might wish to avoid using fabric softener or other laundry additives.
Knitting: Bonnet
Thinking Christmas? This is a fast and easy project and will keep the wearer’s head, neck and ears protected on the coldest winter days!

Chunky Cable Scarf by Lynn Venghaus
Knitting: Accessories - Other
This cocoon fits most newborns to about 3 months. There’s plenty of room for them to wiggle, stretch, and grow.
Knitting: Scarf
Though there is a ‘right side’, this scarf is attractive from either side. It can be made to any length you desire. I used a soft worsted weight yarn (Caron’s Simply Soft in Blue Mint #9608) for the turquoise one pictured. I’m currently knitting one with undyed alpaca that is a delight!
Knitting: Baby Blanket
Nice easy pattern with a four row repeat; great for new knitters.
Knitting: Leggings, Beanie, Toque
This design is a 4 rows and 4 stitches repeat. VERY EASY!!
Knitting: Scarf
A while back I woke up to realize I’d dreamed of a knitted hat and hurried to create one just like I’d dreamed . That pattern is now called ‘Dream of a Hat’. This scarf came to be in a similar fashion though made from a daydream. The worsted weight version is the Courtney Scarf. It’s named after a young woman I care very much about. Because I’m...
Knitting: Beret, Tam
I woke one morning to realize I’d been dreaming about the creation of this hat. When I thought about the dream, I realized I already knew what size needles to use, how many to cast on and the openwork design. This hat wanted to be knitted! I haven’t been able to find one like it in a store or on the internet so I’m not sure if it qualifies as a...

This simple design is worked on size 7 or 8 needles (straight or circular) and can be easily adjusted to fit regardless of your gauge though 19 stitches in 4” is what I get on size 7 needles.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These fingerless mitts are knitted in the round using double pointed needles or a longer circular with the Magic Loop method with worsted weight yarn. Size 4 needles and one ring marker are recommended.
Knitting: Scarf
Knitting this scarf is so much fun it should be illegal! The design is made of eight to eleven triangles, each offset from the previous suggesting a spiral. Think of each triangle as a traffic stop where the officer let you go with a warning; avoiding a citation is always a good feeling. There is no joining or picking up stitches; everything is...
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth
This basic dish cloth pattern was handed down to me. I’ve tweaked it a bit and find 8” squares to be the ideal size for me. The design is made up of garter stitch (all rows knitted), yarn overs and k2tog. The picot type edge adds a bit of flair while the lace-looking loops make it easy to hang on a hook next to the sink. I enjoy using bright co...

Knitting: Cowl
This piece, knitted in the round, can be worn as a cowl or as a hat. With the i-cord drawstring loosened, it fits comfortably around the neck and will keep cold breezes from sending shivers down your spine. When your head gets cold, just close up the top, tie a pretty bow in the i-cord, and wear it as a hat! You can tuck your hair inside like a...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This is a good first stranded project. Knitter must be able to knit and purl, work ribbing, k2tog, SSK, and handle two strands of yarn at a time.
Knitting: Scarf
Reversible and No Purl stitches!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Knitted up in a soft yarn, this simple yet stylish hat is a favorite among chemotherapy patients. It is a quick project with 55-65 rows depending on the brim style you choose.
Knitting: Baby Blanket
A car seat blanket is one that is large enough to cover a child riding in a car seat but small enough to not drag on the floor of the vehicle. It is the perfect size to fit over the child under the straps and yet small enough to keep the child snugly in place.
