It's time to knit! Lots of pretty patterns to choose from.


It's time to get knitting again! 

Here are some pretty patterns to knit now.

[left to right; top to bottom]

1) Mirabella. A beautiful draped neckline takes full advantage of the softness and gorgeousness of this yarn! A pretty lace for the front is contrasted by a simple, Stockinette stitch back. Shaped shoulders for a flattering fit. Also available on Ravelry.

2) Lavender. Your new favorite cardigan is fun to knit too! A simple lace pattern is used throughout. The longer length and ribbed details make this an easy-to-wear piece. Also available on Ravelry.

3) Annalisse. Gorgeously textured lace is featured at both ends of this generously sized stole. A simpler lace is worked in the middle. All lace patterns are charted and written. This is an instant heirloom knit up in the alpaca yarn, as shown, or any luxe yarn. 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.

Pattern Pick: Hillside Blooms by SweaterBabe

Hillside Blooms

Hillside Blooms
by SweaterBabe

I'm a knitter, not a gardener. But I still always appreciate the loveliness of flowers that bloom on a hillside.

This shawlette is a knitter's version of that flowering hillside. It starts with a graceful lace pattern that creates a very pretty scalloped edge.

As decreases are made in the pattern, the curved lines and eyelets create a row of tulips that curve along your shoulders. The knitting then transitions to Garter stitch, with gentle shaping worked with decreases and short rows. The result is a stare-worthy shawlette to drape over your shoulders or wear artfully around your neck.

This project used only 2 hanks of the lovely Madelinetosh Tosh DK yarn. The color variations in this yarn work perfectly with the design . . . . >

Available on the Ravelry too.
