My newest pattern was released this week. Measuring in at one foot by 12 feet, the Plaid Super Scarf lives up to its name!
This wee lightning bolt makes a great baby toy, gift topper, key chain or holiday ornament. Knit in two pieces which are then stuffed and seamed together, it comes together in no time.
Fabric yarn doesn’t always make the best clothing due to its heaviness and potential for stretching, so for me, home and fashion accessories are where it’s at when it comes to working with this unusual yarn! This new pattern is a foldover clutch that is perfectly suited to fabric yarn.
In case this isn’t incredibly obvious by now, I love knitting shawls. I’m obsessed with playing with the geometry possibilities, the outfit possibilities, and the chance to show off some beautiful yarn on the canvas that is a big, flat piece of knitting. This new shawl pattern began as a wee experiment with making a shawl featuring increases along one side of the work every few rows, which forms a right triangle. I love the fact that the yarn over increases are hidden in this piece’s chain edge and the wide, diagonal ribs are formed by simply alternating groups of 6 knit and purl stitches, hence the name Sixth Degree Shawl. I hope you enjoy knitting this as much as I did!
This scarf is a quick and snuggly knit thanks to using a nice, bulky yarn. And the featured cable makes it complicated enough that you won’t get bored knitting a classic scarf. A win/win!
These little dudes could not be more appropriate for the last two ornaments in our 12 ornaments of Christmas series – milk and cookies go totally hand in hand with Christmas Eve. I’ll have to do a Santa of some kind for next year to keep these cuties company on my tree!
