Lindisfarne pattern by Lucy Hague

This large rectangular shawl makes use of an innovative circular steeked construction that produces a fringed edge. The complex cables were inspired by the varying weights of Celtic knot interlace often seen in illuminated manuscripts; in the central braid, thinner twisted stitch cables alternate in a contrasting colour to the main cable. All of the colourwork is done with slipped stitch cables, and therefore no stranding or intarsia is required. Finished Measurements Length (excluding fringe): 62˝/(157.5 cm) Width: 15˝/(38 cm) Fringe on pictured sample is 4.5˝/(11.5 cm) long at each end, after knotting and trimming Skill Level Advanced.

It’s worked entirely in the round so that the stranded color work never has to be worked on the wrong side, and finishing doesn’t require any seaming. The fit is relaxed and flattering with compound raglan yoke shaping, a generous collar, and beautiful tubular cast-on and bound-off edges. The sample is shown on a woman, but the pattern is unisex - there are instructions for modifying the sweater to be more appropriate for men’s/tall sizes, so you can make it work for all the Dudes and Dudettes in your life.

Bob’s Burgers and Rivet – F.P. Molina

I seem to have been on a roll lately and you can expect at least a couple more posts in the next few weeks, so you will have plenty to stitch this winter. There is a cool local toy Gallery called Rivet, that I happen to walk by once or twice a month. They have some awesome chalk signs. There is a lovely lady named Laura who co-owns the place and Loves Bob’s Burgers, specifically Tina. As you can see on their Instagram account, she even likes cosplaying her from time to time.

Ruched Knitting Necklace. A while ago I invested in a great set of bamboo knitting needles in lots and lots of sizes. Included in the set was some size US 0 / 2mm needles.
