Knit/lab. The Palma Sweater: A unique knit. I've come across a really beautiful and unique sweater. It's the Palma Sweater (shown at left) by Lene Holme Samsøe. What initially drew me to this sweater was its simplicity: a cross-front sweater with three-quarter-length sleeves and a wide-rib collar. Then I saw the back, and it's made up of a stunning cable panel that incorporates a leafy vine set off with rope cables. You know how I love leaves; add in the cables and it's a winner in my book. There's a third aspect to this sweater, though, that really puts it over the top. It's a pullover! Here's the description from Lene's new book Essentially Feminine Knits: "This top has a lovely construction: it begins with a long, wide rib that forms the front and collar.

You can see the construction best when looking at the schematic: I know I'm always saying that I'm going to knit this and I'm going to knit that, and I really do take the first steps: adding the projects to my queue, choosing yarn, and sometimes even swatching!

Subscribe to KnitBits for a weekly newsletter with free patterns! 10/17/2011 Greetings! This pattern continues to be popular so I wanted to include some updates/notes. As I point out in the pictures here, the original sweater is not a truly woven lattice. If you’d like yours to be correctly woven, hold the FDKC sts on Row 13 in the BACK instead of Front. The second most popular question has been about the Cross Stitch Cables. On the following row you’re asked to purl those stitches DROPPING THE EXTRA WRAP on each stitch. I hope that helps!

I never really put the words, "yogi" and "bolero" together in my mind before, but when this pattern was complete, it just seemed right. Well, at least until I said the two words together out loud.

When I said "Yogi Bolero," out came visions of a know-it-all, hat-wearin', on-two-feet walkin' bear who happens to have a best friend named "Boo Boo. " It was then that I knew, just knew, that I couldn't name the thing "Yogi Bolero," after all. In walked the "Yogini Bolero. " Whips up in no time flat--at least the short sleeve version does--you can throw this one on in a pinch on your way to a class or use as a cover up for a little tank or wildly printed dress.

The hemp or linen offers just enough warmth for warmer climates, but if you want something with a little more heat, try a worsted weight wool. Something with just a bit of a halo, or shimmer, or something just, plain sumptuous. Yogini Bolero is knit in one piece, from the top down. 20 sts and 24 rows = 4” in St st.

Aran Leaf Pattern Shell - 100% wool - a free knit shell pattern. : : o l g a j a z z y : : : Yesterday, I have been deep in thought while sizing a pattern, deadlines all looming and sooo much to do before the year's end.

I have thought to share a great little technique with you. Something last minute that you can make for either a gift of for yourself! It's been cool, so having that tiny bit of precious cashmere caressing your neck certainly felt cosy. So here is what you would need: Time: 1.5-2hr (excluding drying time). 15-20 grams of Fingering or Sport weight yarn. Make sure to choose something delectable, tiny bit of cashmere, royal alpaca, merino or qiviut.

Try the yarn on your neckline area first to determine the itchiness level as it's highly sensitive area. So you don't end up ripping necklace off after 10 minutes of wearing it.

The weather has officially shifted. we can no longer walk the streets of brooklyn unbundled without seriously regretting the decision. so, the coats and hats and gloves have come out of storage and onto the big and little bodies around here. a few days into the cold, eve began requesting a scarf. ruth soon joined in. after two weeks of being reminded (scolded?)

By my daughters i got to work making the scarves, in the laziest ways possible. instructions below: scarf #1: find abandoned, half-finished scarf wadded up in the bottom corner of yarn/knitting bag. stick needles in one last time to cast off properly. sew on largest button you have and fasten around daughter's neck. feel really good about yourself. you might have been lazy, but you've just made scarves two scarves in less than an hour. and that's something. : : o l g a j a z z y : : :: :: Cable Braided Necklace ::

See ya soon! ---------------------------------------------------------- I received a few questions about how to go about making one of these things, so I figured I might as well post a quick pattern. It is super duper easy though, cuz all you need to know is how to make a chain. Gauge is not important with this. Just grab a lonely ball of yarn, an appropriate sized hook and start chaining.

Chain until your little fingers grow tired/you run out of yarn. Wrap, twist and manipulate around your neck until you look cozy and hip like so. Diamonds and Bobbles Afghan from KnitPicks.com Knitting. Big Herringbone Cowl. Bobble Cast On: a Tutorial, and some thoughts on personality...
