My latest pattern to be published in Knit Now magazine, Issue 39, is my Haddington capelet!
The Haddington capelet is the perfect accessory for heading out to explore the woods. The extra roomy hood is perfect for snuggling into on a cold, dreary morning, and the single-button closure helps to keep it snugly on your shoulders.
The final pattern in Stargazing: 2014 is the Lyra shawl
Lyra uses 2 skeins of a dk to light worsted weight yarn. I used 2 coordinating skeins, but it could easily be knit in a single color. Lyra is knit from end to end, beginning with your main color and gradually increasing in width and color changes, until you switch completely to the coordinating color and begin decreasing and point shaping. The points are simple, and the decreases provide gentle shaping along the bottom edge.
You can purchase Lyra on it’s own for $3, or as part of the entire Stargazing: 2014 collection for $12.
The next Stargazing: 2014 featured pattern is Perseid
Perseid is a quick, 2 skein project which uses the amazingly incredible Malabrigo Rasta. The cables break up the monotony of seed stitch, and lend an interesting texture to the cowl. This is a great pattern to knit up with hand dyed yarns, and the finished cowl is perfect for cozying into on a crisp fall day.
You can purchase Perseid on it’s own for $3, or as part of the entire Stargazing: 2014 collection for $12.
The next featured pattern in Stargazing: 2014 is Ceres.
Ceres is a lace weight cowl that uses a main color and a small amount of a contrasting color for just enough pop of color. The garter ridge rows provide a simple texture, and the garter button tab is picked up along the edge.
Pattern instructions are provided for 2 sizes- a smaller version that does not get looped twice around the neck, and a large version as shown.
You can purchase this Ceres pattern on it’s own for $3 on Ravelry, or as part of the entire Stargazing: 2014 collection for $12.
