Pattern Pick: Viveca Cardigan by SweaterBabe

Viveca Cardigan
by SweaterBabe

A soft linen blend yarn is perfect for an easy-fitting cardigan that can be thrown over many outfits.

The pretty lace pattern is used for both the body and sleeves, giving the cardigan a gently scalloped bottom hem. Knit-in Stockinette stitch side panels shape the fronts. Their angled shapes allow the cardigan to drape nicely at the open front.

Ribbed front borders are knit in for easy knitting. The sleeves are picked up and knit down in the round or in rows.

Shoulders are seamed using a 3-needle bind off and the sides are seamed at finishing. This pattern would also work well in a merino wool blend for a multi-seasonal design. . . . >

Available on Ravelry too.

Pattern Pick: Breezy Lace and Cable Hat by SweaterBabe

Breezy Lace and Cable Hat
Breezy Lace and Cable Hat
by SweaterBabe

This hat is knit from the bottom up in the round, so it's seamless and quick! A simple ribbed border transitions into a pretty combination of classic cables alternating with a beautiful intertwining leaves lace design. Reverse Stockinette stitch makes for a nice contrasting background stitch.

Shaping at the cap is done with decreases that taper the lace leaf design and create a pretty floral effect at the crown.

The hat is just a little slouchy, so it can be worn pulled down for those who like a closer fit, or a little bit back on the head, so it slouches just so. It will be one of your most versatile and easy-to-wear hats! . . . >

Pattern Pick: Karissa Shawl by SweaterBabe

Karissa Shawl

Karissa Shawl
by SweaterBabe

Every once in a while, a yarn inspires a design. As I swatched with this lovely alpaca, merino, and linen blend yarn, I was completely won over by the soft and supple texture of the knitting.

There's enough visual appeal already with this yarn that a subtle, yet overall texture would be in order. The diagonal ribbing became the perfect choice, as it also fits well with the asymmetrical shape of the shawl.

Once the first color yarn was almost out, joining in the second color while maintaining the diagonal ribbing made for a lovely transition.

For a more dramatic finish, the third color is more of a contrast and the stitch pattern evolves into a diagonal lace stitch that has a complimentary stitch repeat. . . . >

Pattern Pick: Kimono Cropped Cardi by SweaterBabe

Kimono Cropped Cardi
Kimono Cropped Cardi
by SweaterBabe

Warmer weather is when the spaghetti straps and maxi dresses come out. But even in hot temps, I like to have pretty things to toss over my shoulders when I encounter indoor A/C or evening breezes.

Here's a modern solution with lots of boho flair! An allover lace pattern is worked in a chunky cotton for maximum texture and lovely openness. Kimono sleeves offer a dramatic touch and allow you to wear this over many types of outfits. The easy cropped shape and a gently curved V-neckline with simple 2-button closure finish the look.

On the bigger needles, this knits up fast in one piece. The only seaming is straight across along the kimono sleeve bottoms. You can seam more or less based on how you want it to fit at the bust. . . . >

Pattern Pick: Adela Stole by SweaterBabe

Adela Stole

Adela Stole
by SweaterBabe

"Adela" means graceful and noble, which makes it a fitting name for this lovely stole. Its silky quality comes from the loosely plied cashmere and merino wool blend yarn worked on a slightly larger needle.

The yarn glides between your fingers easily as you work the beautiful lace pattern, which only consists of simple decreases and yarn overs. A wide 2x2 rib is knit only on one edge for a little asymmetry.

The lace pattern features pretty diamond shapes with embossed edges that give the finished shawl lots of textural interest and eye-catching appeal.

Knit it in the creamy white, as shown, to emphasize its soft-as-a-cloud status. Self-scalloping edges where the lace begins and end add an additional feminine touch.. . . >
