Pattern Pick: Tiered Eternity Scarf by SweaterBabe

Tiered Eternity Scarf
Tiered Eternity Scarf
by SweaterBabe

I love that knitting can create such gorgeous textures. And when I can find multiple textures that combine so effortlessly, it’s a great thing!

This eternity scarf’s generous width allows you to experience knitting three different textured stitch patterns that will then display beautifully when worn.

It starts with a Leaf lace panel that you work from end to end. Stitches are picked up along one of the long edges to work a very simple textured stitch as the middle layer. A few rows of Seed stitch as the top layer combats any curling and gives the scarf a neat finish.

Worked up in a soft (yet sturdy!) alpaca and wool blend in a neutral color, this scarf is sure to be a fabulous, timeless, wear-with-everything accessory. . . . >

Available on Ravelry too.

Pattern Pick: Big Cable Stole by SweaterBabe

Big Cable Stole
Big Cable Stole
by SweaterBabe

A big, bold, all-over cable pattern is truly eye-catching in this fabulously soft and warm stole.

Intricately intertwined cables are worked over the full length and width of this stole, with a simple Garter stitch border. Works up surprisingly quickly due to the Aran-weight yarn (in this case, 2 strands of thinner yarn held together throughout – one 100% alpaca and the other an alpaca and silk blend) and bulky needle size.

The cable is charted and written out, so you can follow your preference. Simple cable techniques are used and explained in the instructions. Length can easily be extended by working additional repeats of the cable pattern.

This is a cable-lover’s dream to knit and to wear as a stole or super warm and luxurious scarf. . . . >

Available on Ravelry too.

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

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.. . . >

Buttermilk Toque
Buttermilk Toque

by Isabetty Knits

The Buttermilk Toque is a worsted-weight hat packed with small but mighty cables and a generous helping of seed stitch for maximum texture and squishiness. Each row of the pattern repeat is easy to memorize, giving you a visually complex surface texture with that’s a breeze to knit. This hat is perfect for anyone who is an unabashed lover of 2x2 cables, who can't get enough of seed stitch, and who is left breathless at the thought of combining the two. . . . >

Pattern Pick: Hillside Blooms Shawlette by SweaterBabe

Hillside Blooms Shawlette
Hillside Blooms Shawlette
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 Ravelry too.
