Fulfilling Your Pattern Needs
Couple finished projects I’ve been sitting on for a while.
I’ve been eyeing the owls sweater for many, many moons, and I’ve finally gotten around to making it. I did edit it to be a cardigan since I like them better. It only took a little finangling to move the start of the row to the middle of the front and then added 5 sts of garter st on each side, with a button hole every 12 rows.
I’m pretty smitten with it. It’s pretty stinkin’ warm though.
Also made this hat, which was my first soiree with Malabrigo, my new bff. I’m not planning to write it up as a ‘real’ pattern, but here are my notes, if you’re up for an adventure.
- Size 8 needles
- Malabrigo worsted weight, about 2/3rd a skein
- Darning needle
Hold yarn to front, sl 2 sts to right needle, move yarn to back, move 2 sts back to left needle, k3- repeat
The last stitch will overlap the next round. That off-sets it each round.
- Cable cast-on 96 sts
- 1.5 in 2×2 ribbing
- Next row – increase every 10 sts to 105 total
- Work 5” of pattern
- pm every 26 sts
- Decrease one each row at the markers, adjusting to stay in pattern (this is the part I really should have written down…)
- When 12 sts remain, pull tail through remaining sts and weave in ends
