Upcoming Knitting Patterns - an Eternity Scarf and Cabled Hat

Here are two NEW patterns that will be coming soon!  Can you tell that I've been blue yarn obsessed lately??

Malabirgo_Chunky_Cabled_Hat_350

The first one is a bulky hat made in Malabrigo Chunky. 

Hooray!  I've finally tried Malabrigo and I believe all the hype!!  It is lovely to work with and really gives you that handmade feel (in a good way!).

The colors have a lot of depth, even my single shade of blue. 

The hat is slouchy and wonderfully textured with a rich cable stitch pattern.

Boho_Scarf_Eternity2_350 The second project is a Eternity Scarf made in Blue Sky Alpacas Alpace Silk yarn. 

Talk about a yummy yarn!  The Blue shade is also ultra gorgeous and sophisticataed.  I got tons of comments on the color just as I was knitting this thing (from males and females, so I guess it's just one of those colors that appeals to ALL!).

Boho_Scarf_Wrapped_350

The scarf in knit in a simple lace stitch that is easy to learn (since you will be doing MANY rows!).  It was not so simple to be boring however!

AND, I chose to use little clear plastic snaps on the ends so I could choose to wear it as an Infinity/Eternity Scarf OR as a regular scarf.

There's plenty of length to wrap it around 2 or even 3 times AND the Alpaca Silk is so soft, it almost tickles!

Both patterns are coming VERY soon!

Watch for the announcement of these patterns in my newsletter!

Oh, they are BOTH gorgeous. I love the stitch woven through the cable, and the wave pattern of the scarf looks perfect for nearly mindless knitting. Now the only question is which I will make first.

Absolutely love the hat and will want to have the challenge of making it, also love the scarf, plus every thing looks wonderful.

Such lovely patterns! Glad you found out about Malabrigo, it is my favorite yarn! So soft, yet gorgeous colors. I just love the scarf pattern, I can see it is a must make!

Just love the scarf. How much yarn did it take? I have an order about to place for another project and thought I would get my yarn now for the scarf.

The Boho Scarf took 4 hanks of Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk. It's a wonderful yarn!

I love the color of that scarf!
