WIP: Super Simple Fingerless Gloves

Hey guys,

Emily here with a new little project I’m working on. I’ve been hankering for a pair of fingerless gloves and have been a little too focused on watching the original Beverly Hills 90210 to be bothered to count stitches for any kind of lace pattern. Enter Roxanne Richardson’s Easy Fingerless Mitts.

I’ve already finished one mitt and have started on the second so I should be finished really soon.

Aside from being really easy, these mitts use LESS than 50 grams of worsted weight yarn. For mine I chose a ball of Knit Pick’s Wool of the Andes in Papaya Heather.

Now, I’m not going to include a picture of what I have so far so you’re just going to have to come back next week for the finished product!

Thanks for reading!

Love, Emily

WIP: Chunky Beret

Hello!

I recently started my first hat knitting in the round. It took me a while to get the hang of round needles, but now that I have I am hooked!

I chose Paton’s Shetland Chunky yarn because it was an affordable yarn for my first hat trial.  The dark green is a nice, rich, fall colour. I have always wanted a dark green slouchy hat, but have never seen one in stores.

I wanted to try an easy hat pattern and found a great simple beret pattern on Ravelry. This pattern is pretty basic and fast! I didn’t have the same size needles as the pattern uses, so my beret has a tighter knit than shown.

The Needles:

Size 8 US (5mm) 16″ circular needles. If you want a chunkier knit use the needles recommended in the patter!

The Yarn:

Patons Shetland Chunky (75% Acrylic/25% Wool) Sage Green (#78242)

Here is my progress so far.

Happy Knitting!

WIP: Fall into Winter Cowl

Hello!

Emily here with a project I’ve been working on for the past week. I’m going to call it my “Fall into Winter” cowl. It’s a very basic pattern that I created so I didn’t have to keep track of stitches and just relax with my knitting.

A couple of months ago I went to my local yarn shop and picked up three balls of Jo Sharp’s alpaca kid lustre. This yarn is a beautiful blend of alpaca, mohair, and merino wool.

Here’s the pattern:

The Needles:

Size 8 US (5mm) 16″ circular needles. If you want a bigger circumference, go ahead and use a longer pair of needles!

The Yarn:

Jo Sharp’s Alpaca Kid Lustre (30% Superfine Alpaca/40% Kid Mohair/30% Merino) 1 ball Pine (#856), 1 ball Elderberry (#857), and 1 ball Champagne (#858)

Or any other DK weight yarn of your choosing.

The Stitches:

K= Knit

P= Purl

YO= Yarn Over

K2tog= Knit Two Together

The Pattern:

With A cast on stitches in multiples of 2. If you want it closer fitting, c/o less, if you want it looser, c/o more!

Join in round and add stitch marker.

Round 1: Knit

Round 2: Purl

Round 3: Knit

Rounds 4 & 7: K2tog, yo, repeat to marker

Rounds 5-6: Knit

Rounds 8-12: Knit

Repeat rounds 4-12 until desired length.

To finish, knit one round, purl one round, knit one round, and then bind off.

This is what I have so far:

I hope you try it yourself and enjoy it! Completed photos will be up in a week or so.

Love, Emily
