Pattern Pick: Ultimate Chunky Cables and Ribs Scarf by SweaterBabe

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.. . . >

Pattern Pick: One-Skein Sweetheart Slippers by SweaterBabe

One-Skein Sweetheart Slippers

One-Skein Sweetheart Slippers
by SweaterBabe

Warm their feet and hearts with these beautiful, quick knit slippers!

Knit in one piece, each slipper starts at the back heel and works its way forward with nice cables along the sides. Then, the stitches are joined in the round and finished on DPNs. A super sweet twisted stitch heart decorates the top of each slipper.

Minor seaming at the back heel and that's it! Plus, only one skein of yarn needed (assuming you reuse the gauge swatch yarn for size L). Makes a great gift idea for Valentine's or just anytime.. . . . >

Available on the Ravelry too.

Pattern Pick: The One Hat by SweaterBabe

The One Hat

The One Hat
by SweaterBabe

Every once in a while, a great knitting pattern will come your way and you'll enjoy knitting it over and over. This lace hat is "The One" for me and easily for you too! This has all the elements I love:
* Lace that is easily "learned," but never boring!
* A ribbed band (for a great fit) that blends beautifully into the lace and can be easily lengthened.
* A nicely shaped crown ending in a lovely floral motif at the top.
* An easy-to-follow chart AND written instructions for ALL rounds.
* One ball of most worsted-weight yarns will do = stash-buster!
* So cushy soft and practically collectible when knit up in cashmere/Merino wool blend yarns, like those shown here.
* Eye-catching, multi-dimensional lace patterning that screams "I was not mass produced on a machine, but lovingly hand-knit by a skilled knitter!"
* Seamless, easy finish. Weave in two ends and you're good to go! . . . >

FREE Pattern Pick: Divine Pull-Through Scarflette by SweaterBabe

Divine Pull-Through Scarflette

FREE Pattern Pick: 
Divine Pull-Through Scarflette
by SweaterBabe.com
(free ONLY until 12/21/16. On Ravelry too.)

Lush is the perfect name for this yarn, and this scarflette design takes full advantage of it! Knit in a beautifully textured lace stitch with one shaped end and one looped end, this pull-through scarf is a cinch to wear. It looks equally elegant with the tapered end gently gathered and pulled through the loop to hang in front or askew. Rotate it around your neck for a different, effortlessly chic look. Or, use the loop to turn it into a cowl and just tuck in the tapered end. This is a gorgeous gift and a very appealing project to those who love working lace.. . . >

Fancy Cables and Lace Blanket

Fancy Cables and Lace Baby Blanket
by SweaterBabe

Here is a gorgeously textured baby blanket that combines wide pretty lace panels with bold, simple cables. It's knit in a soft, pima cotton and modal yarn from Knit Picks in a sophisticated color that would compliment any baby! The yarn has a luxurious feel and makes the blanket incredibly soft and supple. Garter stitch borders are knit as part of the blanket, so there is no sewing or picking up of stitches to finish the project!. . . >

Pattern Pick: Sublime Cabled Hat by SweaterBabe

Chunky_Cable_Hat_500

Sublime Cabled Hat
by SweaterBabe

What could be more satisfying than turning a brilliantly colorful and vibrant hank of hand-dyed yarn into a sumptuously cabled hat to adorn a baby, child, or adult! The very wide braided cable is simple to do and creates a very touchable cable with lots of depth and textural interest.

The pattern includes three sizes, so you can outfit an entire family! AND, each hat uses less than one hank of the deliciously wonderful Malabrigo Worsted yarn! This is one of those patterns you'll be tempted to make again and again. . . . >

FREE Pattern Pick: 
Turtleneck Capelet
by SweaterBabe.com
(free ONLY until 11/23/16. On Ravelry too.)

A strikingly cute capelet that will earn you lots of compliments. The capelet is versatile too - it can be worn buttoned up as a turtleneck or with the nice, wide collar open as shown. A great polished alternative to the poncho!

Bold woven leather buttons give it a stylish twist. Simple eyelet increases create the capelet shape. Ribbing finished the bottom edge.

It can also be worn like a cropped shawl to cover your shoulders when wearing a skimpy evening dress.. . . >

Pattern Pick: Floral Top-Down Cape by SweaterBabe

Floral Top-Down Cape
by SweaterBabe

Like a warm embrace, this shaped cape hugs your shoulders and is then gently shaped down past your waist to drape you in wooly warmth.

It's knit from the top-down on size 11 needles, making this poncho a surprisingly quick knit.

Pretty floral panels that mirror each other embellish the fronts of the cape. Wide ribbed button bands allow you to showcase bold, beautiful buttons (like the woven leather shank ones shown here) and keep the chill out.

The versatile ribbed collar can be worn slightly down as shown, buttoned up to the neck, or buttoned all the way up and worn as a turtleneck.. . . >

Slouchy Trellis Cabled Hat

FREE Pattern Pick: 
Slouchy Trellis Cabled Hat
by SweaterBabe.com

Chunky, intertwining cables and bobbles make for a pretty all-over design on this richly textured, slouchy hat.
