Rhombus socks

Birkenwasseranhöhe knits
Julkaistu 11 kuukautta sitten

Rhombus socks by Cookie A remind me of the flowers you can draw with a pair of compasses. After looking up the word "rhombus" in a dictionary I realised that it's not flowers, quite the opposite! Either way, as we were thinking of which sock pattern to choose for Young Warrior's teacher, I thought…

Julia Mueller has the most spectacular glove designs I have ever seen. I started with Knotty gloves last spring, and as the third round in Lankakauppa Kerä's Head-to-toe-challenge was for wrist warmers (mitts, gloves etc) I knew that I wanted to pick another one from Julia's collection. With some…

P-Rex

Julkaistu vuosi sitten

Combining two-colour brioche with two-colour garter stitch, finishing with one-colour brioche and garter stitch. Throw in some short rows and i-cords, and it's a poncho. Or a cape. Or a cardigan. Or whatever, but it looks good and feels nice. This P-Rex by Susanne Sommer was one of my Indie Design…

Smokey Zickzacks by Natalia Vasilieva have a very interesting construction. The socks are knitted flat in a chevron pattern and then grafted together to form a sock. This is a pattern that will keep you interested, and it's truly amazing how everything adds up in the end and all those different…

I met the lovely Anna of AnnaSaskia designs last October at Kässäkerho Pom Pom Superviikonloppu. She told me about her plans and it's been great to see her start with her web page and Etsy shop since then. After the festival I checked out her designer page on Ravelry, and noticed that she's the…

Nancy Marchant is the queen of brioche, and I've been wanting to knit something designed by her for quite some time already. So when Lankakauppa Kerä announced the beginning of their year long From Head to Toe challenge and the second item to knit was a scarf, I knew that it was time to pick one…

Kalaloch leggings

Winter in Finland can get cold, and at some point you need woolly leggings under your winter pants. When I saw the Kalaloch pattern I knew that I want to knit them - these leggings are pretty enough to be worn on their own. I added some length to the legs, but with DK weight yarn it's a good idea…

On a global scale we hardly have a homelessness problem in Helsinki. Everyone is entitled to housing and our beloved welfare state should guarantee that for everyone. For the time being at least. Of course, there are always people who are not caught by the social security net and we have some 8000…

Bubblewrap stitches in Mesmeria…

I have recently used bubblewrap stitches in several designs: Pastilles Hat, Ipana Cardigan and Mesmeria Dress. It's a nice way to add what looks like stranded knitting with a bit of texture - and only working with one color at a time. Knotions magazine published a tutorial for bubble stitches and…

Last summer I took Joji Locatelli's "Approach to sweater design" classin Jyväskylä. As "homework" she gave us her Worsted Boxy pattern so we could take a closer look at how grading is handled in the pattern. Well, I thought that I would learn more if I knitted the sweater, so here we are!

When I started writing patterns of my knitwear designs I promised myself that I would only write patterns for something that I've knitted for myself. I'm a selfish knitter after all, and I wouldn't want to waste time knitting something that I won't be able to wear. Well, 21 patterns later I've…
