Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Using a hitched stitch, which is the half linen stitch in the round, you will find the hand dyed technique creates a very unique design. The softness and gauge allows this lovely slouch to have exquisite drape. Try adding a pom to give it more drape would be a lovely addition.
Knitting: Cardigan
The basics of this sweater would lend itself to an EXCELLENT first sweater. All the pieces are rectangles, sewn together then picking up stitches for the lovely shawl collar.
Knitting: Cowl
What a fun shoulder warming cowl for seasons, or wear to a concert, church, the opera….
Knitting: Hats - Other
Here is a sweet, slouch hat that has a very easy lace pattern to follow. (Would be great for a beginning lace knitter!!)
Knitting: Skirt
This is a lovely skirt that double stranded with sock weight yarn and lace weight kid mohair. The waistband is worked first assuming a 2-4” negative ease for a perfect fit.
Knitting: Scarf
Working with this luscious yarn is a pleasure in itself…and running it thru your fingers is divine!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Using any color sequence you desire gives you freedom to go wild! I chose 6 colors and repeated 3 of them to be able to stay in the theme of my Beatles’ song “Number 9, Number 9, Number 9”!
Knitting: Cowl
The pinstripe texturing of this cowl is beautiful with this yarn. Color depth on Merino Textura plays very well in this texture.
Knitting: Pullover
This is a very simple design of 4 panels with neckline shaping. Sew together down the center with WS facing to achieve the raised seams. Collar and ‘sleeves’ are picked u an d knit to alleviate so much sewing construction to complete the garment. The size of the garment is exaggerated for comfort and to accommodate several body types.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This is a wonderful little piece that is worked side to side, starting each piece from the outside and meeting in the middle for a 3-needle bind off at the center back.
Knitting: Cowl
Playing with these hand dyed yarns by MJ Yarns are luscious. The semi solid red for the main color that is slipped frames the beauty of the colorway called Joseph (think dreamcoat!)
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Start knitting this tonight on a size 7 needle and you will be finished before the night is thru. Very cute, easy and rewarding. Make a couple of them and have them on hand for that baby shower!
Knitting: Cardigan
This oversized card, originally designed for Frog Tree, has all the comforts of home: pockets, shawl collar, and colorwork for a nice splash of interest.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
This is a very casual pullover tee top. The slipped stitch feature in the center of both front and back are to break up the stockinette stitch. Fun little detail that I nipped from Elizabeth Zimmerman.
