I set a goal of “3 Patterns” for the past 6 weeks. It was a bit vague, but I think I really meant it just to spur my creativity and branch out. It could have been read 3 Patterns, write 3 Patterns, knit 3 Patterns, crochet 3 Patterns…just do something with 3 different Patterns!
I met my goal and tried 3 knitting patterns, completed 2, 1 was a success. Smile. I am more about process than results, so I am happy that I did 3 Patterns. Never mind the results!
1. Winter Hat with variegated yarn intarsia pattern.
2. Started the Summit Shawl.
3. Made a very long boa scarf for a 5-year old
princess… little girl..princess.
1. Winter Hat
This is the Neighborhood Fiber DK in Victorian Village and a variegated pink DK that I bought on Etsy from Mothy and The Squid. I also used a gold strand with the Victorian Village outside of the ribbing. What fun colors!
I really need to read other winter hat knitting patterns, because once again, the final product turned out too big…but pretty!
I started mine in a fingering yarn, and it was turning out nicely. However, I decided to use the yarn for something else, so frogged it. I think that I will use a DK instead of a fingering yarn when I do this pattern again.
3. Boa scarf. I was asked by this little princess to make a scarf.
I used a pink fur yarn, a variegated pink/purple fur yarn, a deep pink strand, and knit in bells at each end!
I think I loved it more than the recipient! Though she had fun with it too.
