Knitting: Purse / Handbag, Glasses Case
Each uses just one skein of Rowan’s Tapestry yarn and size #5 beads. The subtle color changes are fun to watch unfold and the beads add that special bit of pizazz. (But you can substitute lighter weight worsted wool yarn, like Brown Sheep’s Nature Spun and Paton’s Classic Wool and use up leftovers and single balls from your stash!)
Knitting: Tote
Working a patterned design based on individual units opens unlimited design possibilities. By assembling geometric shapes one at a time, you can build a bag of almost any dimension. And since the units themselves are small and rather simple, this process lends itself well to “found moment” knitting.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
Noro’s Kureyon yarns creates the multicolored background, and your choice of solid yarn is the accent. And with sizes from child small to adult extra large, you can make one to match the personality and head size of everyone you know!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A new shape -- not for the timid!
Knitting: Hats - Other
This is “toque” in the medieval sense: a hat with flat sides, a flat top and no brim. (Not to be confused with “tuque”, a brimless soft cap worn by fur trappers in Quebec and Manitoba in the 1800s, and still worn proudly by Canadians today.)
Knitting: Beret, Tam
A new twist on an old classic!
Knitting: Messenger Bag
Entrelac is a modular pattern where each diamond unit is worked up one at a time, and they are attached to each other with picked-up and knit-2-together stitches so there is no sewing.
Knitting: Tote
Adding extra “short rows” in the middle of a row allows knitters to add shape to a garment. You can use them to add fullness at the bustline of a sweater, or for heels and toes on socks. And they can also be used as a decorative motif!
Knitting: Purse / Handbag
A felted tote with a tailored look.
Knitting: Tote, Purse / Handbag
