"Barnstable Shawl" by Lisa Hannes - KNIT
Suitable for advanced beginner knitters, this beautiful shaped shawl is a mix of garter stitch (all knit stitches) and mosaic knitting - an easy and fun-to-knit color work technique that uses slipped stitches and only one color at a time.
Materials: 2 skeins Red River + 1 skein Gray Day, US size #6 and #7 needles. Pattern can be purchased on Ravelry.
"Floats Cowl" by Purl Soho - KNIT
Named for the “floating” slip-stitched strands that form vertical columns on one side, the Floats Cowl is knit in the round in a crazy-simple 2-round stitch pattern. There’s no right side; both sides are lovely. And while it’s really simple to make, it’s truly intriguing to the knitter’s eye!
Materials: 2 skeins of one color - choose Red River or Gray Day - and size US 4, 40- or 47-inch circular needles. Free pattern can be accessed through Ravelry.
"Bubbly Sweater" by Isabell Kraemer - KNIT
This round-yoked sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down. First some short rows are worked back and forth to create a higher back neck, and then the round yoke is worked top down with a cute “bubbly” color work band to sleeve separation. Some last short rows are worked to finish the yoke shaping, right before sleeve stitches are placed on hold, then the body is worked down to the brioche-stitch hem. Sleeves are worked top down to the brioche-stitch cuffs last. Don’t be intimidated by the brioche edging - you can always substitute traditional ribbing.
Materials: 4 (4, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6) skeins main color and 1 skein contrast color. US 3 - 16” and 32” circular needle and DPNs (or longer circular needle for magic loop) for neck, body and sleeve ribbing; plus US 4 - 24” and 32” circular needle and DPNs (or longer circular for magic loop) for body and sleeves. Pattern on Ravelry.
