Works in Progress: February 17, 2021

Week 3 Update – Good progress, but lighter on projects. It is now week 3 of my February Works in Progress effort.  I’ve made some great progress on the green cowl and cabled scarf I shared last week. The cowl still requires me to pay attention to the chart so this will not get advertised…

Twisted Trellis: Update and Matching Cowl!

Errata: The repeats instructions in the patterns uploaded January 21, 2021 had an error. The repeat instructions should have called for repeating 3-18, not 1 -16. New pdfs are available for download. Like most of my patterns released six plus years ago, the Twisted Trellis pattern was in need of an update. I first released…

Corrugated: Cowl Update & Matching Hat

The Corrugated Cowl was originally shared as a free pattern in November 2013. I’m continuing to work through my older patterns and update them and when I went to look for this file, I was surprised to find I’d drafted a matching hat. I knit myself a hat in the cream-colored alpaca to match my…

Beacon: Hat and Cowl Set

Free patterns to start 2021. Happy new year! This is one year I don’t mind turning the calendar to a new page at all (Yes, I use paper calendars. It’s a whole thing. Highly recommend.). I am looking forward to 2021 and think there’s so much to be excited about. In working on this pattern,…

New Cowl

Sometimes I thoroughly enjoy working on an over-sized, completely indulgent knitting project. And I particularly enjoy it when I can play with colors and patterns that I may not want to add to my wardrobe, but will be perfect for someone else. In this case, mom said this yarn called her name at the Maryland…

Washington Park

This has been an incredibly busy time – new job in a new home in a new state. As I sit here, I can’t help but reflect on how incredible all these changes are. It felt like the move was planned and gamed out and focused on for months then all of sudden it happened…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

We’re having an unusually snowy winter in Baltimore, that just means more time to knit – including a seasonally appropriate green cowl. Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Baltimore ~Kara  

Corrugated Cowl (and matching hat)

When I purchased the Misti Alpaca Chunky yarn from Woolworks ¬†months ago, I bought four skeins. I thought I would need the entire ~440 yards for a generously sized, warm, bulky cowl. Since I ended up only using three skeins (~327 yards) for the cowl, I decided to make a matching hat. The hat is…

Oakenshawe Cowl

It’s like the season of cowls around this blog, and given that today is the first day it’s felt like Fall in over a week, my new accessories have gotten absolutely no use so far. (It’s been in the upper 80s the last 5 days or so here ¬†– bizarre October weather). But I’m sticking…
