Favorite Patterns

We all have our favorite patterns that we love to make as gifts or for ourselves (we tend to give knits away that we love to wear). I have compiled a list below of a few of my favorite patterns.  These are great projects to make for someone special.

The Honey Cowl by Antonia Shankland

This pattern was the #1 pattern on Ravelry last year and it was designed by our friend, Antonia! I have 2 on display at the shop and have knit at least 5 of these as gifts and have one for myself. This is a great beginner to intermediate pattern that really can be done with almost any yarn.

This is a free Ravelry download.

The Baby Beanie & Mittens by Blue Sky Alpacas

This baby hat pattern is so cute! The sizing is perfect for a newborn baby and the design is reversible which takes out guesswork. It looks great on wee ones and works up so quickly on a size 7 needle.

The accompanying mitten pattern is also very cute and perfectly sized - great for a baby born in a cold climate.

This pattern is available in the shop as well as on Ravelry here.

#106 Outer Baby Blanket by Leslie Scanlon
This baby blanket pattern is definitely a shop favorite. It is knit in Spud & Chloe Outer (machine wash & dry) yarn on a size US 15 needle so it can be finished pretty quickly. I have made and gifted 2 of these and we have another in the shop on display. I highly recommend this blanket as it makes a beautiful gift.

Cast Away Cowl by Patricia Scribner

I designed this cowl to use one skein of Cast Away from the gorgeous Knit Collage. I love this yarn and wanted a cozy cowl that is easy to put on during the cold winter months. The yarn has a soft and beautiful melange of colors in a hand spun thick & thin hand spun texture.

Ravel it here!
