While I am thoroughly enjoying the year of something new, I am taking a break and indulging in some bread and butter knitting. That means a simple, satisfying, Antler.
Working twisted stitch patterns is easier than you might think, and this technique is used in many delicate and beautiful patterns.
I designed these cuddly booties when I was in a COLD place! I was living in a traditional flat in Edinburgh, with lovely tall ceilings, beautiful (single-glazed) windows, and woefully insufficient insulation and heating.
Nobody can object to this hat! It’s adorable on little babes, fashionable teens and classic lumberjacks alike. It is the perfect go-to pattern for gift knitting.
It’s taken me quite a few knits to realize this, but I’ve decided it’s best to knit REALLY big for babies and children. Like 1-2 sizes bigger than you think your child will be when the sweater is complete!
I often find that knits created on holiday encapsulate a memory and bring me back to a special time and place.
