Knitting: Scarf
I like slipped stitches as they give an easy opportunity to do colour work as well as giving texture. This scarf highlights slipped stitches giving both colour play and a nice cushy fabric to keep yourself warm Knitted in a bulky weight, this is a relative fast project, even when it is a long scarf! The scarf was first made to test Fazed Tweed a...
Knitting: Beret, Tam
Using slipped stitches gives an opportunity to do colourwork in a deceptive easy way. This hat is an example, just by slipping stitches a wavy pattern is created that looks much more difficult than it actually is. Knitted in a worsted to aran weight, this is a fast hat, good for a weekend project. The small loops in the inside created by the sli...
Knitting: Beret, Tam
Last winter I knitted a cardigan using Shetland wool which I had bought in Edinburgh when we were visiting the family. I thought that using this wool in stranded knitting with some Thistle like motifs would be a nice thing since my daughters are half-scottish. And my plan was to fully develop it in a cardigan pattern, but things came in between ...
Knitting: Beret, Tam
For blustery cold days there is nothing better than a hat with a double layer. Stranded knitting provides double layers and this is probably a good project to learn stranded knitting with. The pattern is easy to memorize and no floats are longer than 3 sts wide. The yarn is soft and warm too, but any fingering yarn will work.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
These lace pattern motifs are meant to be used for a variant for the “Bigger on the Inside” Shawl by Kate Atherley and full credit for the design of the shawl goes to her and her lovely pattern. The original pattern is also needed for all other instructions. Here only the Dalek motifs can be found and the small adaptations required to make it work.
Knitting: Cardigan
Knitting: Cardigan
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A small hat, using a short row construction and flower decoration.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
Summer time is for easy dressing. This top is a bit more versatile than that since it can be used as a layering item over a long armed T-shirt for colder days too, or it can be worn as a dress if one makes it a bit longer. Originally designed for a linen yarn, it works well in wool too. A bit of drape is all that is required of the yarn.
Knitting: Pullover
Breton shirts in all shapes and kinds are a big thing this spring, so it seems. Big daughter wanted one, and what is better than a home-knitted one? This one has a slight twist: a bit of colour play at the top. Otherwise it is a straight-knitted stripy sweater, with a bit of waist shaping, folded hems, set-in 7/8 sleeves and a small roll neck. T...
Knitting: Cardigan
Last year I had a lot of meetings…and when the going gets tough I do a lot of doodling…. And one of these doodles became this little cardigan. The doodle had some dramatic pleats and I did like that, so I wondered whether I could actually make it into a knit. I knew the yarn to be used had to have drape and it probably would work the...
Knitting: Dress
An easy to wear little dress for lazy summer days. The pattern should work with any DK yarn with nice drape: cotton, linen, hemp, bamboo blends are ideal.
