Under The Wings

I just released my new pattern Under The Wings.







Eagles are bold, beautiful and majestic and this is echoed in the shawl. Beginning at the right wing this piece is worked without seaming using join-as-you-go and very simple short row techniques. Garter stitch and stockinette stitch are combined to balance and add texture..
This pattern is test knitted
Material:
  • Approx 500 yards in Col1 and 250 yards Col2, fingering weight yarns (Yarn used in the picture Kauni Effektgarn, black solid as Col1 and EME as Col2)
  • Size US 2, 32” circular needle, size US 1, 24” circular needle or needle size which creates desired fabric
To create a bigger shawl use a dk or worsted weight yarn. (Yardage will change)
Gauge: Gauge is not important (you have to like the density of the fabric you create)

Hats, Hats, Hats


Samedan, a village in the Swiss Alps with gorgeous historic houses, is a place I loved to visit and enjoy winter sports. With this stylish hat you surely will feel warm and cozy to enjoy the crisp and cold winter air at your favorite place.
Worked in bulky yarn this trapper hat knits up like a breeze. Another One skein wonder with the little extra…




Since I'm a person who can not throw away the smallest left over of yarn, I used my all my bits and pieces of Lambs Pride bulky to knit my pattern Basil.
