Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Cloche Hat
This stylish cloche hat features a double moss stitch split brim, is knit in the round on circular needles and then laced up on the side like a corset with an additional piece of yarn, cord or ribbon. This hat contains no seaming and its eyelet design is worked into the body of the hat.
Crochet: Cloche Hat
This retro-inspired cloche hat features two crocheted flowers that can either be sewn on or attached with safety pins in the last step. It’s also fully customizable as you can just add one flower, omit the flowers altogether or even weave a piece of ribbon through the open spaces in the band of the hat.
This ruffled scarflette is an excellent stashbuster. You can make it with stripes (and use up scraps of yarn) or even make it all in one solid color. It has just the right amount of ruffles at its edge to keep it interesting without it being overly frilly.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl or stole features rows of eyelets and a panel of lacy cables off to one side (no additional cable holder or DPN is needed). It reminded me of the stars and swirling galaxies and since the color of the shawl is dark I decided to give it the Latin name Noctis meaning “of night.”
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This colorful asymmetrical shawl has loads of texture due to the various stitches used throughout the shawl. It even features a center horizontal stripe with opposing stitches on either side of the shawl’s spine thus adding even more visual interest.
Crochet: Applique / Embellishment
These double and triple layered flowers add the perfect finishing touch to many items such as hats, scarves etc. They can be made in any combination of colors and don’t require lots of yarn (20 yards is more than enough). You can use up all of those little balls of yarn in your stash to make these with.
These wrist cuffs feature a slanted shell or crazy stitch design. This stitch looks great with solid color yarns but it really brings out the different shades in variegated, handpainted or self-striping yarns. The tops of the cuffs have a scalloped flared edge which add a touch of panache.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This richly textured hat features columns of mock cable ribs for its edge and double moss stitches for the crown. It is knit flat on two different size needles (in order to make the edge of the hat more fitted and conversely the crown of the hat more slouchy) and sewn up in the final step.
