I'm knitting furiously, well not angrily, just quickly I have a deadline for the end of the month to submit two design samples to Knit Now Magazine, both using Lion Brand Yarns from Woolly Madly Deeply.
These are my first pattern submissions so I was really pleased to have them accepted and so excited to see my ideas and knitting 'in print'.
First up is a unisex hat called Cashmere Cosy. It's made with Superwash Cashmere Merino, the sample is in the Slate Grey colour and I'll make another in either Wine or Blossom for myself. It's sized to fit kids up to a large man.
Warmth and Style
Second is a hat and scarf set, inspired by Native American motifs and using Alpine Wool. I chose Barley as the main colour, with some colourwork (you can do this stranded or by swiss darning / duplicate stitch if you prefer and it looks fantastic).
Colours shown left to right Chilli, Bay Leaf (sky blue), Black, Oatmeal and Barley (a tweedy brown) see below:
I'll post some teaser photos soon and proper pics once they've been to the photoshoot.
