After a short crochet break. I am back to knitting.
I start out with this braided cable blanket think this is going to be tricky. But it was so easy to follow through and memorize. I also wanted to use some bright new colors for this one. The link for this free pattern is here.
I was so tempted to use random stripe generator for this one but then I realized I didn’t have enough of the lemon green yarn and couldn’t find it in any of the stores. So I started to reduce the color by a shade after every repeat. I think it looks really bright and refreshing. Love how the colors contrast each other (Thanks to my color coordinators).

Here is a really pretty and easy knitted shawl or wrap. I thought this will be a little difficult with the increases but it is so pretty and easy to follow. Here is the link to the free pattern. I felt the shawl could be a little bigger and use a nice weight of a crocheted border. The pattern for which I got from here.

Hope you enjoy making this easy pattern. This shawl is now available on etsy. Thanks for stopping by.
I really wanted to learn two-color or Fair-isle knitting for a while. I was looking for a blanket pattern which was not overwhelming in colors and was fairly simple to walk through. I realized there are very few fair-isle patterns for blankets. So I chose this sweater pattern and made it as borders to a knitted stripes blanket. The stripes of this pattern are made using the random stripes generator software.
Color combination: Fair-isle patterns usually need a really good contrast in colors, such as combination of really light and dark shade or white and other dark shades to bring out the pattern. Secondly, the rest of the blanket it is better to have a simpler pattern that will not overpower the beauty/intricacy of fair-isle.
Caron simply soft yarn colors: white, soft blue, light country blue, country blue, dark country blue.
Circular knitting needles. US 8
Crochet hook SizeH 5mm
Edging: one row of single crochet with each color yarn.
Finished dimensions: 24”X35”
It turns out fair-isle knitting is really simple but you do need to careful of the float at the back to get better tension. There are really good youtube videos that walk you through general points in this type of knitting. The color and pattern possibilities are endless.
Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Thanks for stopping by.
This blanket is now available on etsy.
Here is the new blanket I promised to make in fall colors. I really can’t seem to get enough of the chevron pattern. It works up so quickly and gives a really nice gradient look. These colors are something I have been trying to put together for a while now. Finally stumbled onto Mango (caron simply soft) which was the perfect component in this gradient, with an awesome contrast of grey. Made these beautiful Fall colors come together.
Caron simply soft;
White, sunshine, Mango, persimmon, grey heather.

Hello pretty people in my computer,
Hope you are doing well. Here is my latest project in knitting is this chevron blanket. It is a really simple and very beautiful pattern. The pattern is available here for free. The colors I chose here are basically a gradient of pink and a contrast of yellow. I have just added a pretty crocheted scalloped edging. I am definitely making this pattern again in other colors.

I completed my first custom order last week. which as a really big blanket. so I didn’t want to start another blanket, instead I started a small project to get ready for the upcoming winter. It is already pretty chilly here. I thought it will be really nice to have a collection of fingerless gloves in all colors.
This is probably the fastest project ever. The pattern is pretty straight forward and is available here for free. I could actually make two pairs in one night.
Caron simply soft yarn
and light country peach
5 mm hook
Finished dimensions: 6.5” circumference and 8” in height
Changes you could make to the pattern: you could potentially play around with the colors and make stripes and make add-ons like little hearts and owls and stitch them to the front side of the glove.
These are cute little ones with no changes.
And are now available on etsy here
