Every year around September, I get the urge to dust off my knitting needles and knit me some scarves. I'm not much of a pro knitter; my favorite stitch is the moss stitch and that's just knit, purl, knit, purl. Easy! But this fall I'm trying to step up my game a little. I found some lovely scarf/cowl patterns that are more challenging, but still look doable. Want to take a look? Click on the images to go to the patterns!
This lovely cowl actually isn't much of a challenge stitch-wise, but I've never worked with multiple colors! The patterns tells you to 'carry the colors up your work' and I had to Google what that meant. Turns out it means literally that: simply pick up the second strand where you left it the last time and start knitting with it. So simple!
A friend and I already started knitting this one. And yes, it's a challenge....definitely not something to work on after a long day. I'm actually keeping track of the different rows by writing them down, otherwise I'd forget where I am. But it's such a lovely pattern, as you can see below. So far, so good!
I love this pattern! It doesn't seem too difficult, but still lets me try some new things. Including using 12mm needles...wow! I'm planning on using this lovely seafoam green yarn.
I seem to have a thing for white-ish, organic looking scarves these days. This one is knitted with lace-like yarn, so it probably takes a while to finish. It's still on my to do list though, it looks amazing!
Just a quick update to announce that the Mushymooses are back in the shop! Some have already moved to the UK and the US, but there are many more waiting to go and decorate Christmas trees around the world. You can buy them here!
Some new favorites!
See the world!
