Wellsley Cowl

A Free Knitting Pattern




The Wellsley Hat now has its best friend at its side. When designing these two best friends I actually started with the cowl, and made the hat second. I asked my Instagram friends which pattern they wanted to see first and they said the Hat so that is what I started with.

I feel that the Cowl is a little bit easier than the hat because you are not picking up new stitches anywhere. The thing that I love about this pattern is the versatility. It would be pretty easy to make it bigger or smaller to meet your needs, and again the yarn is just so super soft.

I usually have my patterns ready on Monday/ Tuesday but a lot of crazy has happened this week, and we are moving back to the States at the end of the month. I wanted to get this pattern out to you sooner rather than later so I can concentrate on getting everything packed up for the move. In the next coming weeks I'll be able to share more with you about where my family is headed and what we will be up to, but I'm excited to be starting this next chapter.

Waterways Cowl

A Free Knitting Pattern



This Pattern gained a lot of inspiration from the color itself. The colorway is called Aquatic Speckle. I wanted to explore the different ways we represent water in knitting. I really wanted the cowl to have the look of water moving through a creek or the different stages of a storm.

It took me awhile to pin point the exact design that I wanted. I actually had the design flip flopped and the cowl was half way done. I decided it needed to be the other way.
I ripped it all out. That was a rough day.
I started again and I'm so glad I did. I love how the different textures effect how the speckles lay in the cowl giving it a striking difference in the middle block.

The pattern starts with a simple eyelet pattern, that grows into the middle cable section, and then back to the eyelet pattern.

Where can I get this Pattern?

Diamond Dimensions Neck Warmer

A Free Knitting Pattern


The great thing about creativity is that it grows and expands as you learn and exercise it more. Last year when I learned how to make the Left and Right Twist stitch I never realized I would continue to come up with more and more designs that use the stitches. I've been told the best way to grow a business is to build off of what you already know and have done. I don't know if I will ever come to the end of my ideas, but I will just keep putting them out there until there are no more.

The Diamond Dimensions Neck Warmer Uses the Right Twist Stitch, the Left Twist st, Knit st, and Purl Stitch. There are no tricky yarn overs so these patterns make good t.v. watching projects. Once the pattern  establishes itself its easy to follow along and see what needs to happen next. If you purchase the PDF pattern there is a chart that is included with the written instructions.

Where can I get this Pattern?

Notes:

  • The k 6 at the front and back of each row is the garter stitch boarder on either side of the repeating pattern. Sometimes you might see K6, K1, this is to differentiate between the border and the repeating pattern.

Swift Swirl Cowl

A knitting Pattern




I have a new pattern to add to the Swift Swirl Series. The last 2 patterns, the Swift Swirl Hat and the Swift Chevron Hat were worked in the round. For this pattern it is worked flat so some of the rules change a little. It is still an easy to follow along pattern and I was able to finish this cowl up in a weekend.

I am pretty sure this is going to be a fall staple in my wardrobe this year.  I'm wearing it right now as I type.
