Braided Cable Hat Knitting Pattern

Braided Cable Hat

In small, medium, and large sizes, this hat will be a favorite for everyone in your family. It’s quick to knit and the braided cable band keeps it interesting. The huge variety of colors available in worsted weight yarn makes this a good go-to pattern for gifts or to accessorize any outfit you might have in mind. Instructions are included for both the solid and two-toned versions.

The simple cable, a small amount of provisional cast-on and special knit/purl grafting technique make it a good project for trying methods that may be new to the less-experienced knitter. Line-by-line instructions make the grafting a breeze.

Knitting & Pontificating on TV!

I was happily sitting in the Phoenix airport, getting to know Michelle Hunter of Knit Purl Hunter fame, when along came a cameraman for a local TV news program. New airline regulations are going into effect and he wanted to interview me about them. Always game for a good rant, I said yes! The cameraman was the nicest guy ever, …

Purling in Portland

I am officially the Luckiest Girl in the World. I just got back from a wonderful trip to Portland, Oregon. The train ride between where I live and Portland is just under 24 hours, so I booked a bedroom. I loved having my own little world in which to knit, read and sleep. What could be better?! The scenery through the mountains …

For the Birds

I had a blast making Hannah Fettig’s Bird’s Nest Pincushion to celebrate my friend Adrienne’s birthday.   Though the pattern calls for DK weight yarn, I wanted the nest to have a fairly solid structure to it. Also, I wanted the eggs to have a tight fabric to keep the fiberfill from showing. I chose worsted weight yarns, and knit them on the needle size from the …

Portland Yarn Heaven and a Goat Moves In

This weekend in Portland was Yarn Heaven. I attended the TKGA Knit & Crochet Show, taking some great classes and checking out the wares in the shopping area. It’s like a mini Stitches event. The market is smaller, but I got to see some wonderful locally produced yarns. The classes are smaller too, which gave me a chance to learn …

Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues

Digital Edition (pdf)

Do you like to knit scarves but hate it when the wrong side shows? Here’s the book for you! With over 30 patterns and variations, Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues offers a wide variety of techniques to suit different skill levels, or to match the mood of the knitter. You can find just the right design for the person you’re making the scarf for, from simple to perfectly detailed. Even the more complex-looking patterns are deceptively simple to make. For example, the double-knitting designs require no special skills – they use simple knit, purl and slip stitches. Do you want to create your own designs? Sidebars give hints about how to modify the patterns for your own creativity. Inspiration abounds in this book, which scarf knitters will turn to again and again.
