Pattern Pick: Crystal Cove Shawlette by SweaterBabe

Crystal Cove Shawlette

Crystal Cove Shawlette
by SweaterBabe

There's a stretch of beach here in Southern California called Crystal Cove. It's nicely secluded, with charmingly restored cottages that are wonderful to stay at, if you get lucky enough to snag one.

This elongated, triangular shawlette reminds me of those cottages. There's a vintage charm to the combination of stitches. It's knit up in a hand-painted, fingering-weight yarn on slightly larger needles, giving it fresh appeal and lovely wearability.

Open, textured lace bands are alternated with bands of Stockinette stitch to highlight the subtle color variations of this yarn. A simple lace with a 6-stitch repeat is easily worked from the charts or written instructions included here.

The shawlette finishes with a lace stitch that forms pretty waves. This shawlette uses only one hank of yarn, making this a pattern you can knit over and over again. . . . >

Available on the Ravelry too.

Pattern Pick: Calida Luxe Cocoon Cardigan by SweaterBabe

Calida Luxe Cocoon Cardigan

Calida Luxe Cocoon Cardigan
by SweaterBabe

Calida is a girl's name of Greek and Spanish origin. Its meaning, "most beautiful; heated, with warmth," perfectly matches my new lace cocoon cardigan.

This stylish open cardigan is the epitome of elegance in a knitwear item! Gorgeous alpaca/silk yarn is knit in a lace stitch pattern with just enough openness to keep it light and airy, but not so much that the cardigan loses its structure.

The silk content of the yarn allows this piece to glide over your shoulders and drape beautifully over tank tops, maxi dresses, long-sleeve blouses, and so much more. . . . >

Available on the Ravelry too.

FREE Pattern Pick: 
Quick Knit Shawl-Collared Shrug
by SweaterBabe.com

Sometimes you just need a little something something to cover your shoulders.

Here's a very stylish solution - a quick knit, shawl-collared shrug! It features a textured, open rib stitch contrasted with a 2x2 ribbed, chic shawl-collar. Ribbed cap sleeves finish the look.

This seamless design begins with the back, which is knit from the bottom up. Then, stitches are picked up around the rest of the edges and the remainder of the shrug is knit in the round.

Short rows are used to give the shawl-collar its great shape and to create the little cap sleeves that finish off the armholes.

A great, easy look over sleeveless dresses or slim long-sleeves tops. . . . >
