Originally developed for The Blue Brick’s February yarn club, “Forty Shades of Green” is a one-skein cowl that is knitted sideways and then seamed. Flowing celtic cables run lengthwise along the cowl, framed by a smaller cable below and a moss stitch background. The stitch definition of our Escarpment DK lends itself to the cablework beaut...
Knitting: Legwarmers, Feet / Legs - Other
Sexy and cute, designed to sit above the boot line and hug the back or side of your calf with ornamental cables and optional split lacing design. Use one skein for boot toppers, or 2 skeins for traditional sized leg warmers - instructions are given for both! They’re finished by adding a bit of lace to tie up the backs.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These lovely gloves look deceptively complex but are actually really easy and fast to work up once you get into the rhythm of them. A stag horn cable emerges gracefully from the ribbing at the forearm and dissolves back in at the end with a little extra cable motif to complete it.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat is richly textured, uses just one skein of DK weight yarn, and is easier to knit than it looks! A perfect TV or transit project, you can work one up over a weekend. The textured ridges are perfect for showing off a variety of yarns, solid, ombré or variegated, it’s up to you!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The Migration shawl (so named for the ‘flying V’ formation in the first chart, reminiscent of Canada Geese) is a one skein shawl designed for The Blue Brick Niagara MCN sport weight yarn. The shawl uses basic lace on the right side rows, and all wrong side rows are ‘rest rows’ - all purling. Migration is perfect for showcasing a long run gradien...
The Bum Cosy is just what it sounds like; a cute and sexy little hip hugger that’s meant to be worn over jeggings or tights to keep your bum warm and stylish in this chilly weather. The Bum Cosy has simple, stretchy cabled ribs to give it form while keeping the elasticity. It’s accented by 2 chain link cables that run fetchingly down the side of...
Knitting: Beret, Tam
This new pattern was inspired by a friend of mine who had a slouch hat that she loved so much she wore it almost every day, indoors and out last winter. It set me thinking about how much lovelier it would be if it was a handmade hat (hers was from a major clothing boutique) and how important that perfect slouch hat can be. From cold weather to b...
The Jeanette Cowl is like a collection of my favourite things - it’s a worsted weight, one skein project, simple without being boring, classy and good for quick project gratification :) The finished cowl is seamed together to create pockets for a drawstring that gathers it fetchingly at the neck, or is let out to maximize warmth.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Man Hands. Easy and quick, these simple gloves have just enough pattern to keep you from going batty but are simple enough for dudes to rock without complaining. The waffle stitch pattern is super warm and can show off a variety of yarns. Instructions are given in the pattern for either knitting a basic pair or customizing them exactly to your r...
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
I finally got around to writing down the pattern for my Bay of Fundy scarf – a huge, soft, scarf/wrap that I whipped up on vacation while down east this autumn. Don’t be intimidated by the idea of a scarf on 3.5mm needles, the pattern is pretty mindless and easy (which is what made it a great vacation knit) and you’ll be done before you know it!
