Have you seen the knew Knitscene magazine yet? I am loving the patterns in this one! I don’t usually buy knitting mags, but this one is a keeper.
Check out these patterns:
Not sure if this is a fox or a wolf, but MUST do this one soon.
How cute is that?? I might do some darker tips on the ends, like little fox tails! FAB.
Then this one, the Nocturnal Pullover by Cassie Castillo
It may need a few mods – maybe shorter with a slight blouson and wide ribbing band? Or more fitted. But that owl chart…Yum.
This one might help me to get my chart/pattern confidence up:
And I know I need to lay off cardigans, but I wear them nearly evey day…They are just so versatile.
Look at the texture below! The Terra Linda Cardigan by Rosemary
And I already have the perfect buttons…made by…ME, in a ceramic frenzy this spring!
Moving into chillier days…this little cloche looks like it would be easy on the hat head.
These are just a fraction of the patterns in the magazine. Normally I like one pattern in the lot, but this time there are 18 out of the 20 that I would actually make. Hardly a gnomey pattern in the bunch – these are all on trend and cute as a button!
Talk about value for money at £6.50.
Now I just have to figure out how to use up some of my stash making some of these, as I have small amounts of stuff, but not enough for a full garment. Many of these patterns are heavier wool – worsted or aran, whereas my stash is on the lighter side.
(I have cut myself off from buying more yarn until I use up more stashage. I have this fear of stockpiling huge amounts of yarn and never using it, like some of the monster collections I have seen on Ravelry. At the moment I have one small box full, but this is growing exponentially!)
I can’t wait to see the modifications people do on these once the Raveler’s get at them!
