Operation Marigold: A Hat for a Cause (with Pattern & Tutorial) Welcome to Operation Marigold, in which Snowcatcher and I are joining forces to honour our friend the Goatmother, and with her all who are battling cancer. You are welcome to do whatever you like with the hats you make from this free pattern, but please consider making one (or more) hats for donating to charity. If you'd like to be part of Operation Marigold, here is some helpful information from Snowcatcher: "Hats for chemo patients should be soft, cover the entire head and be washable. Keep in mind some cancer patients are unable to tolerate wool or animal fibers. Color schemes should be upbeat but also fashionable and suitable for everyday wear. Below is a list of charities that accept hats, but you also may contact hospitals or cancer/oncology centers in the area where you live to see if they accept donations.

Caps for a CureChemo CapsChuck's Hats for ChemoHalos of HopeHat Box FoundationHats Off for CancerHead HuggersKnits of HopeKnots of Love How Did the Yarn Behave? Crown: Introducing the Love Bumps Beanie! The Love Bumps Beanie is here! Thank you Gaynell for the name. This comfy textured hat uses a gathered stitch to create the 'bumps'. The pattern itself is very simple. It might take a few tries to master the gathering stitch, but it's well worth the effort. I tried to explain it clearly........I hope I did!

To work the gathered stitch, you hold your working yarn as if to knit, then bring your right hand needle through the 3 strands on the wrong side of the piece that were created when you slipped stitches. You then knit the next stitch on your left hand needle as usual. I knit this hat using Elsebeth Lavold's Calm Wool, which is a lovely yarn that knits up nicely, but any worsted weight yarn would do. The pattern is free, although I do ask that if you have a moment, you stop by our Facebook page and like us. The pattern may also be found on as a PDF . Here is the pattern! Abbreviations: Sl3 = slip 3 stitches, one at a time, as if to knit K2tog = knit 2 stitches together as one. Enough Love to go around. Enough Love to Go AroundUS terminologyDK (8ply) hook F/3.75mm – gives an 8inch square (this is what would give me a 12” square in Worsted Weight)This square requires blocking upon finishing to get proper shaping for corners.All stitches are into a stitch unless indicated they are in a chain space.

Frankenanya's Blog. Webflake Monday. You knew this was coming, right? The webflake works up very quickly and is one of the easiest flakes I've ever made, although my first attempt was a total bomb. I came up with the idea for the spider during a gorgeous fall bicycle ride through a grove of red and orange trees. And the amigurumi idea worked right on my first attempt! You may do whatever you'd like with webflakes you make from this pattern, but you may not sell the pattern. Thanks, and enjoy! Oops.

Felted Thanksgiving Oven Mitt. The thought of Thanksgiving puts me right into the heat of my mother’s kitchen. We chop and stir and baste for days, scrupulously following stuffing recipes many pages long, peeling endless sweet potatoes like we’re in the galley of an aircraft carrier, praying that some relative will notice the difference between a parsnip and a turnip and the fact that we’ve pureed both. Of course all the toil is an act of love, and while the meal is important, the preparations are the true heart of the holiday. So this Thanksgiving, I’m adding to the pleasure with the sumptuous goodness of hand knit Felted Oven Mitts. Now I’m looking forward to every basting! The Materials The Pattern Gauge 12 1/2 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette (before felting) Finished Size 14 inches in circumference and 13 inches from cuff to top (after felting) Color Notes For the gray mitt my colors were: Main Color – Mist Color A – Pumpkin Color B – Cameo Color C – Natural And for the cream mitt I used: Cuff Round 1: Purl.

Round 2: Knit. Annie's Attic - Shop Our Store. Free Craft Patterns | Knitting & Crochet | Red Heart Yarn | Purple Kitty. Bandana Cowl. Working at Purl Soho, I have a front row seat to the parade of effortlessly chic people that give our neighborhood its renowned style. From here I can report that, for men and women alike, this season's prevailing trend in neckwear is the bandana.

Jauntily tied around the neck, it tops off everything from Sunday's T-shirt and jeans to Friday's night-on-the-town dress! The bandana is a sassy, casual touch that suggests that the wearer possesses an innate stylishness. It's the perfect accessory for those cool mornings when you've hit snooze a few too many times and need to turn "thrown-together-in-a-rush" into "casually glamourous"! My Bandana Cowl is inspired by my desire to make "effortlessly chic" even more effortless. I chose to make my Cowl out of Swan's Island Bulky, a brand new yarn made from a beautiful blend of undyed merino and alpaca that feels wonderfully soft against the skin. The Materials 2 skeins of Jade Sapphire's 8 Ply Cashmere, 100% Mongolian Cashmere. The Pattern Gauge.

Shawl Collar Cowl. A few days ago a friend of mine sent me a picture of some wool socks with an accompanying message, "Today is the greatest day. " Now, these socks weren't a gift from me or made by me; they weren't even handmade at all. But I knew exactly why he was so excited. I knew, because it's how I feel about neckwear: Fall is here! I get to wear wool again! While Brian is happily slipping his feet into thick cozy socks, I am joyfully layering up with my new Shawl Collar Cowl. The Shawl Collar Cowl shamelessly conjures the classic 'New England professor', if there is such a thing. It may not be quite cold enough here in New York for wool socks, but it certainly is for some knit neckwear. The Materials For the cowl’s exterior: 2 skeins of Blue Sky’s Techno, 68% baby alpaca, 10% extra fine merino and 22% silk. The Pattern The Gauge 16 stitches = 4 inches in rib pattern on larger needle 15 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette stitch on smaller needle Finished Size Pattern Notes Begin the Exterior Rib Cut yarn.
