Pattern Pick: Marrakech Blanket by SweaterBabe

Marrakech Blanket

Marrakech Blanket
by SweaterBabe

Blankets are like a playground for interesting stitch patterns. And, I for one, need an interesting stitch pattern if I’m knitting up a baby blanket (and even more so for an adult-sized blanket) or I’ll pass out from boredom! This stitch pattern doesn’t disappoint. It’s comprised of simple cable techniques, is pleasingly symmetric, and produces a lovely, intricate-looking design.

Cables are first established within a seed stitch border. The stitches of the cable then spread out, and then come back in, before they get twisted again. The pattern staggers, forming cool, medallion-like shapes.

This is a fairly easy-to-learn cable pattern for intermediate to experienced cable knitters. Those newer to cables can follow the chart and/or written instructions.. . . >

Available on Ravelry too.

Lupine
by Mary-Ann Lammers

Lupine…be the flower or be “wolflike”, you decide!

Either way Lupine will cast a soft and warm glow over your shoulders and chase out the chills. Enter coupon code SweaterBabe for a special discount of 15% for today and tomorrow only.

I liked the look of the gradient shades in this yarn, from silver white to charcoal grey. The mock cable border adds elegance but the technique adds simplicity to the construction. If there is a simpler way, I will take it! . . . >

Pattern Pick: Marine Layers by SweaterBabe

Marine Layers

Marine Layers
by SweaterBabe

For me, mindless knitting is being able to quickly learn a pattern stitch so I no longer refer to the instructions. Both of the stitch patterns in this scarf are easily learned and lend themselves beautifully to a mindless (and fun carry-along) project. They are also just complicated enough to produce impressive results and keep your knitting interest, but won't tax your brain as you knit away.

Each end of the scarf is a chunky section of a textured rib stitch that is just a mix of knits and purls, but is visually much more than a simple rib. The middle is a pretty trellis lace that is actually quite repetitive. After knitting a few reps, you'll start to get a feel for it and soon be able to "read" your knitting in order to maintain the stitch pattern (with only an occasional peek at the instructions).

The two stitch patterns transition seamlessly into one another and provide a pleasing contrast in textures.. . . >

Available on the Ravelry too.

FREE Pattern Pick: Elegant Cristaria Shrug by Alpaca Direct

Elegant Cristaria Shrug

FREE Pattern Pick: 
Elegant Cristaria Shrug
by Alpaca Direct

Named for a pearl mussel that produces freshwater pearls, the Cristaria shrug is a quick, pretty knit shrug that complements formal summer ensembles or casual looks alike. Add beads or pearls for a piece that is truly your own!

I recommend US size 10 circular needles, 20” or longer, so your piece doesn’t have to be scrunched up as you work.

The sample in the photo also used about 25 freshwater pearls on headpins as accents across the back. These are optional & can be varied to your heart’s content! . . . >
