FOs for February and March 2020 knit and crochet

I didn’t post in January or February to let you know what I’ve been working on both knit and crochet so I’m doing a quick catch up post now so you can see all the pretties. Here is my latest line up of FOs for Feburary and March 2020

Gramps by Tincan Knits

Gramps by Tincan Knits is a lovely pattern from newborn to adult sizes and is very well written. This is the fourth I’ve made and it’s my go-to cardigan for babies.

Antler Toque by Tincan Knits

The Antler Toque pattern by Tincan Knits is a lovely design, very well written pattern and sizes from newborn to adults. It’s a unisex design and an enjoyable knit.

Find My Way Cowl

The Find My Way Cowl is a design in testing at the moment and will work with any weight of yarn, the length and width are fully adjustable so you can make it as wide and/or long as you like.

Aileas by Isobel Kraemer

I started Aileas in January 2019 and was ready to knit the sleeves by the end of the month. However, I prefer working my sleeves bottom up and it was put to one side. I finally knitted the sleeves this year and finished it recently. I love it.

Quinnipiac Cowl by Leila Rabe

I’m ashamed to say the Quinnipiac Cowl has been kicking around since about 2011 or so with just the final band to finish. I ran out of yarn but found another ball recently and was able to finish it a couple of weeks ago. It’s destined for a friend who looks great in cool colours and loves anything purple ish.

Find My Way Cowl super bulky version

Prototype of the superbulky version of the Find My Way Cowl which is released this month, very quick to knit, easy lace pattern and a great way to use up small amounts of yarn in different colours.

Painted Roses Blanket for Becci’s Baby

A gazillion ends to weave in, but so worth it. My niece chose the colours and I’m sure they’ll be perfect for her little girl Isabelle Grace.

Aran prototype test knit for my new design Behind The Green Door Cowl, out this month, another adjustable pattern to make to any length or width and in any weight of yarn.

Cardigan and hat with pompoms for Becci’s Baby

Photo copyright Loraine Birchall

Love this little set, the hat was super easy, the cardigan with a raglan/yoke combo and all seamed was a screaming nightmare. Never again.

Bountiful Harvest Hat by Allison Janocha

I loved knitting this little hat, four strands of sock yarn held together to get a chunky/bulky gauge and I think it’s super cute.

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys, Softies and Cuddly Gift Knit and Crochet ideas

I’m not really a maker of toys, but I have made them in the past, usually as a gift for a new family member or just for fun, but this year’s Gift A-long has really opened my eyes to some incredible designs and I thought I’d share them with you.

First up

Leisurely Llama

I couldn’t resist this cute Llama, look at that adorable little face.    This one is crocheted and uses simple stitches, it looks like a quick make and you could customize the colours to suit the recipient.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys Llama to crochet

Hartley the Fox

I love this cute little fox and the designer has an amazing range of toy patterns to choose from, it was hard to single out Hartley the Fox, but as I’ve seen so many Fox cushions and mugs this Autumn/Winter season, it had to be him.  All the stitches are explained in a very comprehensive pattern, with plenty of help.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys Fox to crochet

Cinnamon the little Deer

As well as making a very sweet toy, I can see this one being a favourited Christmas Decoration in our house and being pride of place every year.    I love the little antlers and the sweet expression on his/her face.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys Crochet Reindeer

Giraffe Zoo Kids

My niece, Meghan, loves giraffes and she would go ga-ga over this pattern.  I love the outfits and the felted mane, really pretty details and a comprehensive pattern to take you through every stage of the process.

Oktyabrinka

It’s been a long time since I made dolls clothes but this little ensemble did catch my eye with pretty cable details that any little girl would love.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys Dolls Outfit to knit

Hobgoblin Amigurumi

I love this little Hobgoblin, his fearsome teeth and beady eyes, great fun.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys crochet

Rayan

this sweet little doll has two heads, one awake and one asleep featuring pretty embroidery and a lace dress.  Ideal for keeping little ones quiet or for cuddling to sleep.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys knitted comfort dolly

Family Purr

Cute, cuddly and quick to make, this is a nice easy knit and who wouldn’t want a house full of kitties?  Claire is a member of Team Bundle in the Indie Design Gift Along 2018 and we’re so glad to have her help us.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys knitted cats

Sweet dog Charlie

I love this sweet little pup with his cute outfit, bag, jacket and floppy ears.   This looks like a quick and interesting knit.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys knitted dog

December Mice

More crochet and with it being so close to Christmas I had to include them.    The little tree lights and decorations are the perfect finishing touches.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys crochet mice with tree

Dashing Dachshund

This is alwas popular in the gift along and I love seeing the colours chosen for both the dog and the colourwork pattern.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys knitted dog

Dancing Owl

This one might take a little extra effort with it’s overlay crochet details but look at the wonderful colours and textures?  It’s worth every minute you spend on it.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Toys Crochet owl

Gingerbread Boy and Girl

I couldn’t resist this cute pair of Gingerbread boy and girl, lovely details and pretty outfits, they’ll make fabulous gifts or a decoration you’ll want to use every year.

Minions

And finally, for this selection, I had to include some Minions, they’re just so cute!

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns – Sensational Knit Socks and Crochet Socks

Hi everyone, I’ve been browsing the giant pattern bundle at the Indie Design Gift Along and looking through the Participating Designers list for 2018.   So much talent and incredible patterns for both knitting and crochet.

There are 349 designers, 263 knit designers, 51 crochet designers and 33 who offer both knit and crochet.

Today I wanted to highlight some of my favourite Indie Design Gift Along Sock Patterns.   I don’t usually knit socks but I do love to wear hand knit socks and love to play with colour.   This selection has inspired me to try harder this year and make more socks for ME.

I only found one pair of super bulky weight socks with a nice short row heel, these would be a quick knit and toasty warm.

TV Time Socks

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns 1
A few bulky or chunky weight socks for you, also very quick to knit and very warm.  Fabulous chunky knit socks.

Happy Feet

Another quick knit, this time bulky yarn rather than super bulky.  I’ve made these, super quick and easy to adapt for size, think my second pair I used 4 less sts for a slimmer fit, but they really are my go-to cold day socks and are great for wearing with my wellies on a dog walk.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns 2

Stress Less

Bulky/chunky yarn, bit of garter, but of stocking st and enough interest to keep you going to the end, this has options for 4ply/fingering weight and bulky/chunky yarn.   I’ll be making a pair with chunk yarn for lolling on the sofa over the holidays.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns Stress Less
I made several pairs of these using some Sirdar Click Chunky yarn, they’re super warm and toasty.  Carolyn is a Mod in the Gift Along 2018 event and we love having her on the team.

don’t care

Chunky/bulky yarn, stripes and an edgy, pop of colour.   What’s not to love?    These are a great stash buster, you could use a self striping yarn and a plain yarn, or change colour every stripe, it’s all good.    This pattern is part of a larger ebook collection entitled ‘It’s not me, it’s you’ and that really makes me laugh.   Hand’s up anyone who ever had a break up and wanted to say that?   Me, me, me, lol.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns 4

Kari Slipper Socks

I’m planning a pair of these for myself and some for my son (who until his feet became as big as canoes) used to steal my hand knit socks and wear them.    Chunky/bulky yarn, nice little bit of pattern for interest and so cozy.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns 5

Marked Trail

I couldn’t miss this one off the list with it’s bright colourwork and the chance to use up leftover balls of yarn from other projects.     Bulky/chunky yarn and colourwork, really quick to make, that’s a win-win for me.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns 6

Fern Socks

At last, some crochet socks, in Aran weight yarn and the chance to stripe with colours and bust a bit more of that stash.    Pretty lace and simple stitches make a really warm, quick to make sock.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns Crochet socks

Amour Fou Socks

Aran weight yarn and great textures, this design is part of an ebook called Hubby Needs Socks, the other five patterns are all using 4ply/fingering weight yarn and are all sized for men.    This pair is a quick knit but if you fancy a slower knit with cables, texture and man friendly sizing, do check out the ebook.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns Crochet socks 8

Red Moss Socks

Aran knit, I love the photo and the texture pattern really pops in this rich, red.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns Crochet socks 9

Cam’s Camping Socks

Aran yarn so it’s a quick knit, cables and textures, suitable for both men and women, this’d be fab in a core neutral colour or in an accent colour to add a bit of fun to your outfit.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns Crochet socks 10

Lazy Weekend Socks

This cute pair of worsted weight socks is another fast knit, I have two colours of WOTA Worsted Superwash in my stash, Avocado and Amethyst Heather which are going to be perfect for these.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns knit socks

Comfy Cuff Socks

Crochet worsted socks this time, fun colour and textures for a warm and quick make.

Breakfast Waffles Socks

Waffle texture and warm, worsted weight yarn, easy to adapt for foot length for those with larger feet.

Raggsocka

I couldn’t resist the cables on this one, great fun, worsted yarn so it’s still a quick knit and they’ll be so warm.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Sock Patterns knit socks

Aiden Reversible Socks

I know a few people who have made these and really rave about how great the pattern is, easy to adapt and it make use of those difficult hand dyed skeins you have no clue how to use.   Worsted weight yarn, Rios by Malabrigo would be my choice.

Winter Storm Socks

These cute and pretty cabled socks use dk weight yarn and are perfect for the fashionable speckled skeins you’ve acquired with no real idea of what you might make, the designer comments that her daughter has pinched them already, I’ll take that as a win.

Luck-Luks

I love colourwork and couldn’t resist this cute combination of greens to brighten even the coldest of days.

Vanilla is the New Black (Sport & DK)

Dk yarn/sport yarn, looks great plain or striped and I love the detail on the heels.

Ruso

Sport weight yarn, dk might work well but a beautiful, warm sock for sitting by the fire and watching the dancing flames.

Cuddle Toes

DragonESS

I have been called a dragon in my time and these socks are perfect for the days I want to show my scales and breathe fire.

Happy Hoops

the first of our fingering weight/4ply socks and a great example of colourwork from Helen Gipson, a well written and clear pattern with a beautiful design.

A Song of Knits and Purls

Textured squares and a good neutral would make the perfect for the men in my family, who are often a little bit fussy about their socks.   It has texture so I’d enjoy the knitting but not such an obvious pattern that they’ll notice.

Arctic Blizzard

Wowsa colourwork and a great chance to use kettle dyed or hand dyed yarns for a stunning contrast.

Slip Slide Splash Socks

Slipped stitches and only one colour per row, mean this is the easiest colourwork you’ll find and the chance to make an odd ‘pair’ really appeals to me.  Awesome stash busting potential and even if they don’t match, my son would wear them.

Argyle Check Socks

I’m not sure where to start, I love the slipped stitch sole and heel, the garter stitch colourwork and travelling stitches, awesome!

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Faves

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Faves on my list to make

Hi everyone, I’ve been browsing the sale pattern bundle at the Indie Design Gift Along and looking through the Participating Designers list for 2018.   So much talent and incredible patterns for both knitting and crochet.

There are 349 designers, 263 knit designers, 51 crochet designers and 33 who offer both knit and crochet.

I wanted to focus on cowls and scarves today, there is so much to choose from, but here are a few that caught my eye as I was helping to assemble the giant sale bundle of over 6000 patterns.

First up

Urban Frieze

I love to see Paola’s patterns and photos, she’s such a fun lady and has an amazing sense of style.   This particular cowl combines two of my favourite things, modular knitting and mosaic knitting.   The colourwork (mosaic) is achieved by using only one colour at a time and slipping some stitches, it’s very easy but has big impact.   Modular just means the pieces knitted and joined as you go, working one piece directly from another (no seams).

Cowl Trick

Unusually for Mary, this cowl is in Aran weight yarn, she’s the Queen of laceweight yarns and has a fabulous selection of shawls, so for her this must have felt like knitting with rope, lol.    This is a reversible piece and a very clever construction, it’s also a great one for stash busting as each layer could be a different colour.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Faves 1

Orbital Cowl

I had to include a crochet cowl and this one really caught my eye, all that purple and smooshy stitches.  You could have a lot of fun with colour and play with contrast levels too, lots of potential here.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Faves Crochet

Cailleach-Oidhche

Don’t ask me how to pronounce this, I have no clue, lol.   However, as brioche seems to be the new black, then I had to include a brioche cowl in the mix today.    The instructions include options for both a long and a short cowl, my personal preference for Winter is the longer, but in Autumn/Fall, I like a shorter cowl, so I guess I’ll have to make both.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Faves brioche

Thanks, It Has Pockets!

I had to include this one, as it’s the only cowl I’ve seen with zips and pockets, great idea for those of us on the go and dashing around on the school run.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Faves knit and zips

Sledge

I chose this one partly because I love the colours, yes I am a sucker for this olive/mustard combination, but also because it’s a simple knit, worked in the round with plain stocking stitch and some ribbing for interest.  It’ll be a good beginner knit and one of those go-to classics you wear every day.   Choose a colour to match your winter coat and pair it with a contast colour to add interest.    I’m thinking purple and mustard for mine.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Faves knit cowl 2 colour

Cowl Owl-Light

This cute crochet cowl can be subtle, as shown in the picture with gentle colours or in-your-face pops of colour with high contrast, intense colours.   Your choice, either way, I’m sure you’ll love it.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Faves Crochet Motif Cowl

Pick-Me-Up Posey Scarf

Another crochet choice, this would be great to use up those self striping yarns you have no clue what to do with and is quick to work.   I love the motif, it’s delicate and pretty without being over the top.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Faves Crochet Motif Cowl

Glide

Sometimes you just need a scarf, something relaxing to knit with a simple pattern repeat you can ‘read’ as you knit and that’s easier to remember as you work along.    Pretty lace, would work in any weight of yarn, what’s not to love?
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf knit scarf, lace

Twitterpated

I like this one for lots of reasons, the lace panels, the asymmetry of the shaping, the ability to use up a ton of scrap yarn and change colour whenever I feel like it and to top it all, stripes.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf knit scarf

Bouquet Cowl

I picked this one, partly influenced by the joyous colour but also because it has lace and is part of a really pretty set that I can absolutely see myself making for ME.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf knit scarf, lace 2

Cosmos Flower Scarf

Another crochet beauty, couldn’t resist the colour or the beautiful shawl pin in the photo.  The designer suggest it’s good to have some experience of cluster sts, but the rest is pretty basic and there are a ton of youtube tutorials available to show you how to work cluster stitches.   Give it a go.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf crochet scarf

Pebbles and Scales Cowl

I love texture and would love to make this one, but I must admit it also looks a bit like a Christmas Tree in this photo, if you like a textured cowl which is a fun and interesting knit, this is one!
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Knit Scales

Winter in Star’s Hollow Cowl

I love this cowl by knitting superstar Annie Modesitt, it’s a great way to use that mini-skein set you bought because you love the colours but have no idea what to make with it.    Clever use of short rows and slipped stitches make for very simple colour work with a WOW factor.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Knit Cowl

Caribou Wildflower Cowl

I couldn’t resist adding this stranded cowl pattern, great for using stash and odd skeins your bought because they were pretty, or soft, or just there.     Super warm, worked in the round then joined to make a loop, as long or short ass you like.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Knit Stranded

Pebble Brook

This is great for using those odd skeins of Malabrigo Rios (other yarns available) that you can’t figure out what you’re going to make.   I have a couple of skeins of Rios in Archangel lined up for this beauty.
Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Cowl and Scarf Knit slip stitch
That’s it for today, tomorrow is a Sock Spectacular!   See you then.

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls I love

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls I Love!

Hi everyone, I’ve been browsing the sale pattern bundle at the Indie Design Gift Along and looking through the Participating Designers list for 2018.   So much talent and incredible patterns for both knitting and crochet.

There are 349 designers, 263 knit designers, 51 crochet designers and 33 who offer both knit and crochet.

I wanted to focus on shawls today, there is so much to choose from, but here are a few that caught my eye as I was helping to assemble the giant sale bundle of over 6000 patterns.

First up is this designer by Peggy Jean Kaylor, I know PJ very well and she’s created this in both shawl and shawlette versions, I’ll only show one but you can easily find the other, click on the image to go to the pattern page.

l’Affichage Demoiselle Shawl by PJ Kaylor

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls 1

The one by Marcela Chang

I’ve shown a close up of this one, it’d be fabulous for all the trendy speckled yarns in the shops and available from Indie Dyers at the moment and I love the pretty stitch pattern,  isn’t it lovely?   Click on the name of the pattern or on the image to visit the page.     Marcela used 3ply/light fingering yarn but I think I’d use 4ply/fingering weight from my stash, this really is a beautiful shawl and in these colours, would be perfect for Summer.

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls 2

Ultravioleta by Lena Fedetova

This one is crochet, but it’s hard to tell from the photo and I just love purple, so how could I resist this?   The shawl features a gorgeous zigzig pattern, achieved with chains, shells and simple stitches, nothing too taxing and it’s easy to see if you’ve gone wrong very quickly.

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls crochet

Happy Stitches Shawl by Dawn Ortega

I’ve included this one, partly because I love the colours and simplicity of this one, great for a shawl beginner but also because it’s a good one for those self striping yarns you don’t know what do with, or using up scrap yarn and making a magic yarn ball.

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls 4

Whitewater Wrap by Amy van de Laar

I love Amy’s designs and have made her Beeswax Hat in a previous Gift Along, but this shawl, inspired by a waterfall near to Amy’s home, really stands out for me.    It has lace, angles, texture and a real sense of movement.

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls 5

Vanishing Point by Paola Albergamo

I love, love, love Paola’s designs, her brioche patterns are simply stunning.    This shawl is a more recent publication and I am desperate to make it.

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls 6

Cornfield by Christelle Nihoul

I really love Christelle’s designs, always chic, stylish and on trend.   This pretty shawl is a great way to play with colour and have fun with and isn’t her daughter absolutely gorgeous?

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls 7

Trollius Shawl by Sandra Nesbitt

I hadn’t seen Sandra’s patterns before the Gift Along and I am blown away by this brioche shawl, a brilliant way to use up stash and combine colours.

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls brioche

Salhas Shawl by Cheryl Chow

Another crochet shawl, this time by Cheryl Chow, isn’t it pretty?  Inspired by cherry blossoms and using texture and colour to evoke Spring.

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls crochet asymmetric

Simplicity is Key by Red and the Wolf Designs

This is a simple and quick knit, great way to use up stash, play with colour and get used to shaping a shawl.   It is easy, but it’s not boring, a great knit for tv watching where you want to keep up with the plot and not lose your place in your knitting.

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls simple knit

Gokyo by Allison Janocha

Stripes, lace, texture and the sample is knitted with Yarn Love Mr Darcy, what woman could resist that combination?

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls simple knit 2

Andean Feeling Shawl by Lilia Vanini

This one has a section of mosaic knitting, an easy colourwork method that uses only one colour per row and looks fabulus.

Indie Design Gift Along 2018 Shawls knit mosaic

Rainbows! In Space! by Carolyn Macpherson

I had to include a rainbow somewhere and as a Sci Fi fan, to have rainbows in space was a fab combo.   I love the twinkly stars and the rainbow colours.    I think I’ll make this one with an Autumn coloured rainbow and an inky purple for the starry sky.
