Beside all the fluffy scarfs and cuffs, hotwoterbottle cozies and baby blankets there was a moment for something more practical. - Potholders! Susi published a classic potholder pattern on ravelry and you can find instructions in german on her blog . It's a must have basic for your kitchen... and in case your german got a bit rusty, i quickly put together an english version which Susi allowed me to post here. Susi's Potholder Recipe - chain 14, sl st to close to loop. - chain 1, sc 22 into the loop. sl st into the single chain of previous row. (from here on crochet into the back loop of the sts to create the rib pattern. ) - (work over 11sts of the loop) chain 1, sc 5, sc 3 into next st, sc 5, turn. - chain 1, sc 6, sc 3 into the next stitch (middle one of the 3sc sts of previous row), sc 6, turn.
This winter New York City streets are filled with people who have learned the secret of keeping warm. They are all wrapped up in the big soft folds of the oversized cowl. A long loop that you twist and double around your neck, it's definitely a glamorous touch in a what can otherwise be pretty frumpy season. Don't you love when fashion and function meet in such happy harmony? This cowl was inspired by Joelle's classic Herringbone Poncho from her very first book, Last Minute Knitted Gifts . I have always been so taken with the drape and texture of Joelle's poncho that I was really excited to borrow her idea for this project!
Patricia and I have a friend we call Diva Jess. She's works in the fashion industry and always gives us the scoop on what the trends are. She came into the shop like a storm a few weeks ago and told us that we HAD to cast on righthisverymoment for an infinity scarf. "They're Everywhere!"
It feels like such a long time ago that I knitted this for my daughter. In fact it was only in March, but time has been a funny thing this past year, seemingly standing still and thundering past simultaneously. Recently time and life have been falling back into a more familiar and comforting rhythm.
this is a bit of a fun post for me today! i did something i've never done before. i wrote out a little knitting pattern. now...first off, i am by no means a knitting designer. i simply just couldn't find what i was looking for on ravelry after hours of hunting. i had a skein of the yarn i used for the gap-tastic cowl left over and was dying to whip up another cowl with it. i wanted something warm, not too long (take flight off the girls..wink wink), but not too short (needed to cover my v-neck top openings) and i wanted texture but a quick knit. i was also looking for something that had a bit of drape but was also sturdy enough to stand up on it's own. i sketched out the illustration beside the pattern below and voila, the carefree cowl was born! i love it and it's rolly polly goodness. my newest cowl was made for our carefree cowl knitalong .
i said to myself, i need a big chunky circular scarf to wear all the time.. and this is what came of it. i am putting this grey one in my etsy shop , and also, here is the pattern: ( this pattern is intended for personal use only, thank you! )
