St Patrick’s Day Lace Infinity Scarf
March 4, 2014
Now that the Olympics are over it was time to move on to some other crochet and knitting projects. St. Patricks Day is coming soon so I started this lace knit infinity scarf the last couple of days of watching the Olympics. I finished it a few days ago and wanted to share it on my blog.
I really like how my new design turned out. The yarn I use is the Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn – a soft worsted weight yarn. Both yarns are in the sparkle version so the green and the white both have metallic silver thread in the yarn – you can kind of see it in the close up photo below. I only did a small amount of white since that is what I had leftover from making my Olympic projects. I also like the length – it can be worn long as a stylish accessory or doubled for warmth.
The knitting stitch I used for this pattern reminds me of crochet. I really like the openwork of the pattern. I am currently designing another infinity scarf – cowl using the same pattern mixed with another stitch and I really like how it is turning out. I will be sharing that on my blog soon so check back often to see what is new.
Have a great day!
Knitting Mobius Cowls
November 12, 2013
I recently finished a couple more knit cowls. Both of these cowls are knit in the round on circular knitting needles in one continuous piece with a deliberate twist – known as a mobius cowl or wrap. I love projects like these that do not require any seaming.
The cowl-wrap above is knit in Homespun yarn in the color Fire. A very pretty rustic orange color for fall or winter.
This version of my mobius cowl is a lacy knit version. I also used Homespun yarn for this accessory in the color Tudor – it has shades of blue and green along with purple and cream.
Both of these cowls are my own pattern which is available in my etsy shop if you are interested in knitting your own. I am also selling both of these cowls in my shop as well – they make a great gift.
I am currently working on a new crochet motif sweater pattern that I hope to finish soon. I am also knitting a sweater in some yarn that I found in my stash that I have had for a long time. What projects are you currently crocheting or knitting? Click on Leave a Reply to let me know.
