Just in time for winter, I offer you the Knit Picks version of my Mistake Stitch Scarf and Headband set. Super bulky yarn makes for warm and cozy accessories. My scarf and headband designs are quick to knit – just right for gift giving during the busy holiday season. Post-holiday, they’re the simple kinds of projects that we all love to make as we crave relaxation, simplicity and maybe some social knitting with friends. A holiday gift to you is that the pattern is free!
Fans of Knit Picks yarn will love The Big Cozy yarn, a super bulky scrumptious blend of alpaca and wool. It gives nice stitch definition and also softness.
The headband is secured by a button, which you can adjust for just the right fit.
With snow promising to pile up soon, this warm thick scarf is a welcome accessory!
I hope you enjoy this relaxing set of quick knits!
Dubbed the Cushy Chroma Socks due to their warmth and thickness, these socks make for perfect winter knitting. I don’t know about you, but as the hectic holidays wind down, I’m always in the mood for some easy, quick knits. The Cushy Chroma Socks fit the bill. No teeny needles or thin sock yarn here – Knit Pick’s Chroma Worsted works up quickly on US #5 and #6 needles. The end result? Soft, warm socks that are perfect for padding around the house on frigid winter days, wearing to bed to keep tootsies toasty at night, or even to wear out in your roomier shoes or boots.
The Cushy Chroma Socks pattern is available for free from Knit Picks. Sizes are Women’s small (shoe size US 5-6), medium (7-8), and large (9-10), ranging in circumference from 6.5″ to 8″. Chroma Worsted comes in vibrant colors ranging from blended stripes to bold. I love wearing these cheerful colors when the weather is dreary!
I’ve been privileged to be part of the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program since April 2010. I thank Stacey and the rest of the Knit Picks team for the opportunity to include another pattern!
I have a Japanese Maple that leafs out red in the spring. Doesn’t it look like fall?
I appreciate Knit Pick’s including me in their Independent Designers Program. You can read more about it and see other patterns here.
Many thanks to Susan Claudino for doing an awesome job knitting the sample for the Knit Picks Smock Top Sweater! She’s a talented knitter, and you can admire her work on her NoKnitSherlock Ravelry page.
For anybody who’d like a refresher on how to knit smocking, I’ll remind you I’ve posted a YouTube video that demonstrates the technique.
