Yes, this blog is finally starting 2015 posts!
I had purchased the beautiful knitted scarf below at a boutique where my knitting teacher and her friend Katie were selling items. Katie made the one below:
I asked my knitting teacher if she would make me a hat like the ones she was selling to go with the scarf. I chose Vanna's Choice Yarn in the color Taupe
All that was needed now were the gloves which I knitted out of the Vanna's Choice Taupe yarn using double strands. I used a pattern from a Discover the Knit Stitch class I took at our local Michaels store. It was very simple. I wanted to knit the gloves since the hat and scarf were knitted. Otherwise I would have used this Crochet Nature Pattern to crochet them. I love Crochet Nature patterns.
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease THick and Quick (I used two strands of Vanna's Choice instead)
Knitting Needles Size 13 (9mm)
Large Eyed Blunt Needle
Size: About 6 1/2 In. (16.5cm) Circumference
Gauge: About 9 Stitches=4 in. (10cm) in Garter Stitch
(Knit Every Row)
CUFF (make 2)
Step 1 Cast on 15 stitches
Step 2 Work in Garter Stitch (knit every stitch on every row) until piece measures about 8 1/2 in. (22cm) from beginning.
Step 3 Bind off, leaving a long yarn tail
Fold knit piece in half. Thread yarn tail into blunt needle.
Sew sides of Cuff together for about 2in. (5cm).
Leave next 1 in. (2.5cm) unsewn for thumb opening then seam remainder of sides.
Weave yarn ends into inside (wrong side) of Cuff.
Next Post will show the other two scarves I purchased to take to Michigan (from Crochet Nature)
I forgot how fun it is to have new winter accessories...............
