Pattern Pick: Chalice One-Ball Scarf by SweaterBabe

Chalice One-Ball Scarf

Chalice One-Ball Scarf
by SweaterBabe

Pure silky softness glides through your fingers as you knit this one-ball beauty!

A very pretty lace pattern that only uses basic decreases and yarn overs evolves nicely as it runs the length of the scarf. The placement of the decreases and eyelets form curves that evoke the loveliness of an ornate chalice.

A few stitches in Garter stitch along both edges give them a subtle and neat finish.

Knit this highly-giftable scarf in any of the many kid mohair/silk blends of lace-weight yarns (see materials section for yarn options). An amazing stash-buster! . . . >

Available on the Ravelry too.

Pattern Pick: Vine Lace Top Down Cardigan by SweaterBabe

Vine Lace Top Down Cardigan

Vine Lace Top Down Cardigan
by SweaterBabe

This is the cozy cardigan that you will reach for anytime there is a chill in the air. It's knit on large needles and from the top down for quick results and minimal seaming.

Simple vine lace panels create a pretty accent in the front, along with the uniquely gathered patch pockets. A boldly defined ribbed waist, nicely shaped generous collar, and slightly wide, easy sleeves makes sure that this bulky knit is most flattering to wear.

Lots of buttons down the front allow you to keep warm or let the jacket hang loose. And with the top-down design, you can adjust the length of the body and sleeves as you see fit! This sample has slightly shorter bracelet-length sleeves. Just add a few rows for regular length sleeves.. . . >

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 . . . . >

Pattern Pick: Sapphire Lace Shawl by SweaterBabe

Sapphire Lace Shawl
Sapphire Lace Shawl
by SweaterBabe

Bold, yet highly sophisticated sapphire-colored yarn combines beautifully with a design that mixes lace with intermittent bands of garter stitch.

The yarn is an unbelievably silky merino blend that comes in a rich color palette and practically glides through your fingers as you knit.

The result is a sumptuously soft triangular shawl that drapes beautifully as a scarf and adds the perfect touch of warmth.

This shawl is knit from the top center down with increases positioned to create the versatile triangular shape. It's knit in one piece, with only the optional fringe to add in finishing. . . . >

Pattern Pick: Adore by SweaterBabe

Adore
Adore
by SweaterBabe

I adore the silky softness of a kid mohair and silk blend yarn. And (as you can tell), I'm always drawn to lovely lace patterns. This stole features not just one, but two breathtakingly beautiful lace stitch patterns, artfully combined and gorgeously presented when knit up in the kid mohair and silk blend yarn.

A generous bottom border is worked in the first lace stitch, which is simple and repetitive to knit, and creates very pretty results. This lace is then only continued along the sides to allow the water lily motifs to take center stage as they run down the center of the stole. The stole finishes with the same generous lace border to mirror the beginning.

With some patient and very enjoyable knitting, you will have a lovely, ultra-lightweight, and incredibly soft and warm stole that doubles as a luxurious scarf (my preferred way of wearing!). . . . >

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 . . . >

Playday Pack
by Alpaca Direct

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! . . . >
