New Hat! First person who comments with the correct namesake for this hat gets a free mouse army Ravelry .PDF of their choosing. (You have to be able to receive Ravelry gifts, so this may be limited to registered users, but I’m not sure. I may be able to work around that, actually. But IContinue reading “Anning.”
It’s Octagon Time! It’s a blanket/basic shawl. Really, what it is depends on what you want to make, and what yarn you use. I went a bit wild and self-indulgent on this one; it is probably the most hedonistic use of an expensive yarn I’ve ever committed. The soft blue gradient yarn making up mostContinue reading “The Super-Secret Larger Project I’ve Been Working on All Month(?).”
A new hat! Mafic is a simple garter-stitch beanie with an unusual construction. Knit it flat on one circular needle, with no seaming at the end. It’s reversible, with faux seams on the ostensible wrongside. (If you want.)
This week’s pattern is a scarf, partially because I can’t find my hat(?) and also haven’t knit the smaller (kid-size) version of the hat yet.
This is probably the last shawl I’ll post in 2020. The yarn is very nice: Beach Bunny World Traveler.
Alfa Cowl. I’m a bit late with this update: Alfa Cowl is my take on a simple diagonally-knit kerchief-style neckwarmer concept. It’s not very diagonally knit. It’s a little bit diagonally knit, though.
A new cowl pattern! The Emerger .PDF makes the cowl shown in two different sizes, in one or two skeins of fingering-weight yarn. (Most fancy yarns come in 350+ skeins, so two skeins will be plenty. With the sock yarn shown, two skeins is enough to make both sizes—one each.) Emerger Cowl.
Gopher is available now on Ravelry! It’s got a little in common with Manta, in that it uses a similar exploded-shape concept (Manta is a kind of broken square; this is a kind of wrecked rectangle, I guess). The slightly weird shape lends itself well to wearing; there are a couple of ways to styleContinue reading “Gopher.”
North Platte Cowl.
I finally finished the .PDF pattern for the design that preceded the 14-square scarf! It’s called Window Greens, because the original used green yarn and I was thinking about arugula. But the final version had some substantial changes—it calls for soft DK yarn instead of fingering-weight, and the button configuration is less straightforward (but notContinue reading “Window Greens.”
