Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl is a lovely display of the beauty of the long repeats of yarns such as Noro. The heart shape of the shawl creates a garment that hugs the shoulders and easily stays in place, versus shawls that you have to continually tug or pin in place to keep on.
Knitting: Scarf, Fingerless Gloves
This is an amazingly lush and squishy scarf and fingerless glove combination. Fingerless gloves use 3/4(ish) of a skein, and the scarf can be knit with two skeins and the remainder for a longer scarf (56”) or with just two skeins for a shorter scarf (50”). It is a generous 9” wide.
Knitting: Scarf, Beanie, Toque
This pattern creates a fully reversible scarf and hat with what appears to be a cable, though no cabled or twisted stitches are involved. An excellent quick-working project that creates a sophisticated and expert look with beginner to intermediate skill.
Knitting: Hats - Other
Though this hat is knit differently to reflect my own style of knitting and pattern writing and to adjust for the much smaller canvas of a newborn’s head, I would like to give credit and thanks to Thelma Egberts for the visual inspiration for this baby hat from her adult version of the fish hat.
Knitting: Brimmed Hat
Adorable hat with an optional ruffle. Cute worked in a striped yarn or with the brim and the cabled parts of the hat in different colors or all the same. Workable with one ball of Ty-Dy Wool or one skein of Cascade 220. (Men’s size hat with a ruffle may require more than one skein.)
Knitting: Ankle Sock, Slippers
This is a quick and simple slipper pattern constructed the way a traditional cuff-down sock is made. It is a perfect pattern for those beginning to learn how to knit socks because it uses actual techniques on a much larger scale for faster knitting and stitches that are easy to see. It is written to help ‘hand hold’ new sock knitters...
