Tempted Tuesday_By the Neck

A couple of weeks ago, I had published a Tempted Tuesday dedicated to quick hat projects, and the beginning of a new hat design (which has since gone live).  It’s only fair that I do a similar post, this time dedicated to things to wrap around your neck right now as the air begins to chill, and the thick + cozy pieces you’ll be dying to wear later when it’s actually cold outside.  And soon I’m hoping I’ll be able to announce a little side project I’ve been working on with Holly over at SillyLittleLady!

Light Layers

Slightly Cozy

Baby, it’s Cold Outside!

English Roses _ Pattern LIVE

I am so happy to announce that my English Roses pattern is now live and for sale on Ravelry, check it out here!  I had started this one awhile back, but had to set aside to work on a commissioned project.  Right now, I’m really loving the look of curved hems, and I like how this one is only curved in the back, adding just a little bit of fun & flair to the piece.

The sleeves are long and fitted, and the color changes line up for a flattering color blocked effect.

Sample shown is the 34″ size and has 3″ of positive ease for a finished bust measurement of 40″
Yarn: Grignasco Knits Loden (still available in some online stores) but a great yarn substitute would be Rowan Felted Tweed Aran.
Needles:  Size 5 US for body & sleeves, Size 4 US for neckband.

I hope you all enjoy!

Last Minute Beanie_Footpath

As I teased almost two weeks ago, I decided to play with a skein of Shelter that I had sitting in my stash to see if I liked it enough to knit a full sweater out of it.  Turns out, it was really fun, and I ended up designing a little beanie out of it!

The lace pattern is an adaptation of a traditional leaf lace pattern, in that the points of the leaves are interrupted with the opening of a new leaf.  This beanie works quickly on size 6 US needles, and was such a little joy to knit that I’m offering it up for free!  And given that only 1 skein of 140 yards is needed, it’s easy on your yarn budget too!

Please find the pattern available at Ravelry here.

Happy weekend!
