Ribbed Hand Warmers If you're a careful reader of the Purl Bee, you may have noticed by now what a big fan I am of hand warmers. I love how practical they are (no holding dirty mittens between your teeth while you fish around for keys); I love how fast they are to make (you just can't say that about too many knitted things!); I love how flattering they are on everybody's hands; and, for all these reasons, I love how perfectly suitable they are as gifts (I'm remembering recent recipients: friend Claudia has a pair, so do aunt Bretta, cousin Katie, and sister-in-law Jen.). Ever since Joelle made the Log Cabin Baby Blanket for her new niece out of Anzula's Squishy, I have been really anxious to give it a try. Joelle is a tough customer when it comes to yarn, so her rave reviews of this one set my expectations high.

How to tie a Turk's Head Uses: The Turk's Head (ABOK # 1303 - 5, p 232) is widely used as a slide, or woggle, for scout's scarves. Tying it: The Turk's Head is usually tied around the hand. For the demonstration here, the braiding was performed round a piece of wood and the work was rotated as the braiding advanced. Variations: There are many variations on the simple Turk's head. With a large enough loop, many more braids can be created before making the end follow the lead of the first round of braiding; more than one strand can be used; and the number of times the end follows the lead can be varied.

Two Color Brioche Cowl // free pattern and tutorial - Finally (and seasonally inappropriately, unfortunately) my second brioche cowl is done and I’m geared up with a pattern and tutorial to show exactly how I made this bad boy.

When the form is fluid and mutable and when the palette is supple and free, then I feel that knitting really hits its creative stride.
