My patterns are mainly very simple knits, most of them initially written as little project ideas for my knitting class, but I have also put them into my ravelry store to allow others to use them as well. So get your ravelry account and download them 🙂 (Just click on their names to get there)
It would also be lovely to see pictures of your finished projects.
It is a short yet versatile cowl because the buttons allow you to wear it in a normal circle, a moebius or half open.
This pattern is written for medium sized phone cases but is easy to adjust for bigger sizes. It is a perfect exercise to practise a variety of knit/purl pattern and to sew pieces together.
I developed this particular pattern in one of my classes as one of my students was not quite happy with my much smaller original design. It offers two versions, a very simple garter stitch one and one that would require a few other techniques as well.
I love diagonal knits. You can just start knitting in one corner until your piece is big enough – no need for a tension square 🙂
It also makes your item look different from the usual garter stitch crowd, all you need to know apart from the knit stitch is one way of increasing and one for decreasing.
It is an easy knit and can be modified to any size or yarn. As it is another diagonal knit, it is perfect for varigated or self striping yarn.
Frederick is a pattern for a wooly hat with ear flap in sizes from 43 to 53 cm ( tested on children from about 4 months to 8 years). Because of the broken rib pattern it is very stretchy and forgiving when choosing the right gauge and size.
