Entrelac Pattern When I first saw this pattern…. wow, this woven knit strips pattern is so beautiful!!! I definitely want to make this, but how? Thanks to the modern technology of internet, I searched through the web and found some videos that taught about it. Luscious One Skein Cowl Recently, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a skein of Lion Brand’s new yarn Unique, in the Grapevine colorway. And it was so yummy I couldn’t wait to turn it into a new pattern! The Luscious One Skein Cowl can be made in just one evening, and I think it’s going to be a staple in my wardrobe – as soon as we get some Fall weather to go with it!
A Giant Wool Blanket Does the cold weather give you a hard time? There’s an impressive solution you could implement that is cute and useful at the same time! Try and make this impressive blanket out of wool. It looks like a lot of work and it really is so, but if you muster enough of patience and visualize the comfy result, it will seem like a piece of cake. It might get funny at some point because you won’t find knitting needles big enough for this project and will end up using PVC pipes instead.

Yarn Comparison Chart Are you looking for a yarn comparison chart? The world is getting smaller these days (okay not literally but you know what I mean) and it is far more likely today that you will have a pattern or some yarn from a country that uses a different measurement scale. If you are in the USA - do you know the American equivalent of 4 ply? Or if you are in Australia and you have a pattern for worsted wool - do you know which ply to buy to make your garment? Yarn Comparison Chart The tension is the number of stitches and rows over a 10 cm square knitted in stotcking stitch.
How to do the Russian Join to make a Magic Ball in Yarn Have you heard of a Magic Ball? It’s a ball of yarn that changes colors and textures as you work. It’s something offered by a number of artisan yarn makers… but it’s also something you can make yourself with your leftover yarn! Besides ending up with an awesomely fun end-product… you’ll finally get to use up all of those weird leftover pieces of yarn that are too small (you thought!) Milk and casting resin jewelery tutorial Updated at the bottom-after 4+ years! I was curious about this and I had some left over milk that my kid will not drink. I think it got all lipasey in the freezer and it’s past it’s best by date anyhow. Besides, she’s suspicious of anything not water in cups.

Winters are long, freezing and snowy, Falls are beautiful, and Springs are cold enough for gorgeous handknitted shawls. Summers? Little Fair Isle Hat Before learning how to knit, I loved and admired Fair Isle knitting but always assumed that it was reserved for an elite few gold medal knitters, the kind who apprenticed on their grandmothers' knees before they could even walk. Now, of course, I know that I should never have been so intimidated!

Fair Isle is really one of the most fun things you can do in knitting!
