Pattern Pick: Walderton by Michelle's Assortment

Walderton

Walderton
by Michelle's Assortment

Drawn from the dichotomy of the fragile thatched roof and strong flint and brick exterior of the medieval house, Walderton is sure to inspire. The stark contrast of cable and lace are juxtaposed in this triangular shawl to create a look both unique and beautiful. Pair with your favorite shawl pin for a timeless look to be enjoyed for years to come. . . . >

Pattern Pick: Navajo Loop Stole by SweaterBabe

Navajo Loop

Navajo Loop Stole 
by SweaterBabe

I love the idea of big stoles that you use to blanket your neck and shoulders in luxury and warmth! This stole is precisely that kind of accessory, and it's a nice soothing knit as well.

Choose two sophisticated colors, as I did, for a nod towards the huge striping trend. Combine this with a lovely chevron pattern that has texture and lacy elements to make it even more intriguing.

You can knit your stripes as you wish (if you introduce more colors or have different amounts of yarn from your stash that you are using). I chose to have the striped ends mirror each other with stripes of decreasing width as they approach the middle color block.

And it's all knit up in one of my favorite alpaca and wool-blend yarns that has a lovely feel as you knit it and of course, when you wear it. Lace pattern is charted and written so you can you follow your preference. . . . >

Available on the Ravelry too.

Pattern Pick: Pendants Blanket by SweaterBabe

Pendants Blanket

Pendants Blanket
by SweaterBabe

Texture, texture, texture. That's what I love when knitting up a blanket to adorn a new baby or my living room couch.

This blanket has texture galore with pretty embossed pendant shapes individually bordered by cabled arches – creating a stunning overall scalloped design.

Strategically placed increases and decreases, a few cable crosses, and knit and purls are all it takes to knit up this gorgeousness. Charted and written out so you can follow your preference.

Blocking brings out the true beauty of this stitchwork and worsted-weight yarn makes it a medium weight blanket perfect for all seasons (and ideal for many yarn options).

Pattern includes the baby blanket size, shown here, as well as a lap and throw size. . . . >

Available on the Ravelry too.

Pattern Pick: Ultimate Chunky Cables and Ribs Scarf by SweaterBabe

Ultimate_Chunky_Cabled_Scarf3_5

Ultimate Chunky Cables and Ribs Scarf
by SweaterBabe

Even though my winters are not white here in Southern California, I love having a chunky winter white scarf to knit and wear.

Especially one that just exudes texture! This one has plenty of texture, with loads of braided cable sections, combined and alternated with brioche rib. It's a perfectly blended match that results in a fabulous winter white scarf. Knit in a very soft merino wool in winter white, this scarf is this season's modern take on a winter classic.

The easy-to-learn stitch pattern knits up fast, creating a nice, thick, and luxuriously textured scarf that can be worn looped with the ends pulled through, wrapped once around your neck, or with the ends tucked in like a cowl. The alternating cables and ribs also creates nicely waved finished edges. . . . >

FREE Pattern Pick: Violet Zig Zag Shawl by SweaterBabe

Violet Zig Zag Shawl

FREE Pattern Pick: 
Violet Zig Zag Shawl
by SweaterBabe.com
(free ONLY until 1/24/17. On Ravelry too.)

It all started with a lovely zig zag lace panel, chosen for its simplicity and ability to allow gorgeous yarn to show to its best advantage. With a little creative shaping, the lace panels are worked so that they span out towards the bottom edge of the shawl as the triangular shape is created. The result – a fabulously complicated-looking, but easy-to-work overall lace design that draws the eyes in many directions.. . . >
