I added another free pattern earlier in the week – it didn’t seem right to plug it in amongst my ratings about VATMoss, so here’s the link and a picture of what you could create:
It’s a quick knit and a good way to use up some leftover DK yarn so you might just rustle one up by Christmas…!?
My first attempt at a written knitting pattern is now available via the FREE PATTERNS link at the top of the blog.
The pattern’s for this very cozy and totally reversible double-knitted ‘Rectangly Hat’. The concept of double-knitting (knitting two layers at the same time) fascinated me. This hat was made after knitting a swatch to find out how the technique worked and wanting to experiment with a larger project.
Hopefully I’ll get this pattern set up on Ravelry tomorrow. If you decide to give it a go, do let me know how it works out!
It has been a little quiet on the blog as I haven’t been around for a week or so, having been sunning myself on holiday. Well, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, I have been self-catering, getting soaked and doing routemarches round places of interest to 9 year olds for a week. One day I will get to do as little as possible in the sunshine with someone else doing the cooking…
However, I did take the essentials with me – some fibre and my spindle, my copy of YarnMaker magazine, my Leyburn socks and a Liesl cardigan (if I could have got my wheel in the car I would have done)!
Back to reality now, well a mountain of washing and ironing, but I do have another week off work. Amongst the many things I’d like to do this week is get one of my patterns written up and available via my blog, so watch this space!
