Knitting: Animal Toy
This fun little sheep is worked flat in a textured bobble stitch and then seamed. You may use extra yarn as a stuffing or your choice of another material. The face is knit flat and sewn on. Pieces of a simple long I-Cord are threaded through the body to make legs and sewn on as a tail.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
These cute summer-themed baby toppers feature your choice of sailboats or whales using stranded knitting in the round. A tiny fringe is added as either a sail flag or the whale spout. A tassel top completes the hat. Pattern includes both the sailboat and whale charts.
This is a swingy vest with waist shaping and little flares at the sides. The fronts come together with a v-neck and then continue to increase out to swingy points. The back and fronts are knitted separately and then joined at underarm and vest is finished in one piece. Can be worn open or closed with a shawl pin.
Whimsy is a slightly swingy, open-front cardigan with a lacy knit shawl collar. The construction is top-down with a slight gathering in the body at yoke. The body of the sweater is knit in one piece, with the collar piece knitted separately and sewn on. A contrasting knitted-on I-cord trim defines the yoke.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These pretty fingerless mitts use three colors of fingering weight yarn. You will need one skein (approx 175 yds) of the Koigu KPPM for the main part and a small amount of two other colors for the cuff and tips. The texture on the cuff is crocheted on after the mitt is complete using only chain stitch and single crochet stitches.
This cowl can be pulled up over your head and is still long enough to keep your neck warm. You can make a nice cowl with about 250 yards if you don’t want to be able to pull it up over your head. Frog Tree Pediboo makes a lovely one, as well as Koigu KPPPM.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A half hank of the Mountain Colors’ wool crepe will make the small and a full hank, the large. You also need one US 8 (5 mm) circular needle at least 24” long and one size G/6 (4.5 mm) or H/8 (5 mm) crochet hook (optional). Shawl is knit with a single strand of the wool crepe yarn.
