Autumn Equinox Vest

Easy details make this project fun and unique: a lofty slip stitch rib, pretty waist shaping and a bold plastic zipper. (Conquer zipper fears with our new Zipper Tutorial!) I think vests are an autumn staple, and, for me, a pure knitting pleasure. Without sleeves, it's over before you even knew it began! And on to the next project!

Free Patterns on Pierott

Luckily, I've been able to find some sites through Ravelry's Japanese Knitting and Crochet group and Yahoo's Knitting In Japan group. If you are anywhere interested in Japanese knitting and crochet patterns, I highly recommend both groups. The people on the lists are so nice and there are some fluent Japanese speakers that are often willing to help with translations of parts of patterns. One of the best places to find free Japanese knitting patterns and Japanese crochet patterns is on the Pierott (Gosyo Co. ,Ltd) website. I use the Google search bar with the Translate feature turned on to help me read the words on the pages that aren't images. Here's a list of some of the them: Ninja - Amigurumi Sorry for the long wait.

Mini Muk Luks ~ Crochet-Along ~ Part I

I know I have a few new guests joining in on this crochet-along and I'm very happy you're here! If you have just discovered this post, we are going to be making these cute Mini Muk Luks together. I like to call these my Mini Muks. They are designed like traditional knitted muk luks which are usually knee high. These have the same great style, but are a little shorter, about mid calf. As we work on this project together, I hope you will feel free to comment, ask questions, make suggestions and tell me to speed up or slow down. Mini Muks ~ Part I Here's what you need to get started: Two skeins of yarn: I like to choose one with some texture or pattern and then a second skein that is solid. I searched through my stash and found this pretty tweed by Cascade. Scissors, a Large Eyed Needle for finishing, and a size K(10.5) or 6.50mm Crochet Hook complete what we need to start our project.

So you can see we have kind of a soft square.
