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. . . . >

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. . . . >

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.. . . >

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. . . . >

Pattern Pick: Santorini by SweaterBabe

Santorini4_500
Santorini Shawl
by SweaterBabe

A striking mix of textures and color will surely transform any outfit! This slanted rectangular shawl delivers all that and allows you to effortlessly combine your favorite three colors.

The colors are artfully combined with varying stretches of Garter stitch and two different lace stitch patterns. One is a pretty leaf lace and the other is a more open, trellis lace. Both are charted and written.

Separating out the pretty lace sections are easier Garter stitch segments to blend the colors in throughout the length of the shawl and provide subtle textural contrast.

The slanted rectangular shape is easily created. The shawl is knit to a generous width and length so it can wrap effortlessly around your neck and shoulders with lots of color and texture impact. . . . >

Pattern Pick: Kiana Vest by SweaterBabe

Kiana Vest

Kiana Girl's Vest
by SweaterBabe

My girls always need a layer for the morning chill as we head to school. And what better way to arrive to school in style than with this lovely cabled vest!

A beautiful center panel features a medallion-shaped double cable that frames a single lace leaf motif. This pattern-stitch combination is all you need to embellish this vest, along with the required details, like neat ribbed edges, handy pockets, and a nicely squared neckline.

The vest is worked in two pieces with knit-in pockets. Ribbing at the neckline and pocket tops are knit-in. Ribbing at the armholes is picked up and knit at finishing. Side, pocket, and shoulder seams only.

A heathered wool gives a slight rustic feel and great wearability to this vest. She'll slip it on over any long-sleeved top and be good to go! Girl's sizes 6 through 12. . . . >

Women's version sold separately – perfect for Mom!

Available on Ravelry too.

FREE Pattern Pick: Prosecco by SweaterBabe

Prosecco
FREE Pattern Pick: 
Prosecco
by SweaterBabe.com
(free ONLY until 10/30/19. On Ravelry too.)

Prosecco is a lovely, sparkly white wine that can add a festive touch to a gathering of friends and family. This infinity scarf is my knit version!

Knit up in a creamy cashmere-blend yarn, this infinity scarf will add a gorgeous finish to any outfit! Two textures – an open lace with suspended bubbles and a simple (yet different) tailored rib – combine in blocks and in alternating bands to keep this project interesting to knit and wear.

The scarf starts off with a long stretch of the easy-to-work Sailor's Rib, then transitions into alternating bands of the Bubble Lace and Sailor's Rib. It then finishes with a long stretch of the Bubble Lace before its ends are joined to form the infinity loop. This order of pattern stitches will give you a chance to learn the more advanced Bubble Lace in spurts before you work the bigger block of it! It also allows you to highlight whichever pattern you've in the mood for depending on how you wrap and wear this around your neck.

The scarf is shown in a slightly shorter length to fit more snugly around the neck for warmth. Extend the length easily with more rows of the Bubble Lace if you prefer an infinity scarf that hangs down a bit more. This is my new favorite infinity scarf for it's supreme softness, wear-with-everything color, and lovely mixed textures. It will fast become yours! . . . >
