Small Knitting Projects

Small Knitting Projects

Have knitting, will travel! Smaller knitting projects are great for summer-time, when your schedule is less scheduled but you still want to fit in some knitting!

Here are some project ideas that you can get going quickly (stash busting!) so you'll always have something to knit!

[left to right; top to bottom]

1) Dreamcatcher Hat. One ball with a little bit of contrasting color yarn makes a fun hat for men or women. The women's version has lace eyelets, while the men's version is all about the chevron Garter stitch stripes. Both are easy, quick, and seamless! Also available on Ravelry.

2) Kiki Hat. Cable-framed leaf motifs are the gorgeous panels in this textured hat. A fun, interesting knit with fabulous results! Co-ordinating fingerless gloves pattern available too! Also available on Ravelry.

3) Shawl-Collared Shrugette. When you need a little something to layer over your summer tops, this little shrugette is the thing! Knit in the always stunning Madelinetosh Tosh Light yarn, it's a special and versatile accessory. Also available on Ravelry.

4) Adaline Shawl. Sometimes, the simpler stitches are enough to create a gorgeous result! This one-ball shawl starts with lots of Garter stitch, making it ideal for travel knitting. It finishes with a delicate open lace. Beautiful for showcasing that hand-dyed fingering yarn sitting in your stash. Also available on Ravelry.

5) Chalice One-Ball Scarf. Silky, gossamer lace. A pretty lace with only simple decreases and yarnovers. Charted and written. Also available on Ravelry.

Pattern Pick: Garden Stroll Stole by SweaterBabe

Garden Stroll Stole

Garden Stroll Stole
by SweaterBabe

Garden strolls, a day at the Arboretum, visiting the Farmer's Market. . . all such outings deserve a stole like this that can keep you lookin' hip and stylish, and chase away any chill in the air.

A trio of stitch panels, each interesting in its own right, combine beautifully to run the length of this stole.

The different stitches complement each other and harmoniously create a handknit piece that will earn many oohs and aahs.

Knit this up, as I did, in a gorgeous heathered green and you will have a lovely piece that perfectly transitions your wardrobe from summer to fall and beyond . . . >

Available on the Ravelry too.

Playday Pack

You can never have too many bags...and this one will quickly become one of your favorites! It's a cute, roomy, easy to carry, self-closing style that doesn’t even need a lining. Knit in one piece with a worsted weight yarn, the body of the bag is felted in the washing machine. The long strap is knit flat or in the round and encases a soft cotton cord for added strength and comfort. The strap is lightly felted by hand, and hand stitched to the felted bag in two places. Try it-you’ll love it! . . . >
