Yesterday, I have received an email from Lovecrafts that my pattern Calypso Cowl has been nominated as one of the knitting patterns of the month. Bellow is the collage of the ten patterns that have been nominated.

My Calypso Cowl made it onto the Top 50 knitting patterns of 2019 on I Like Knitting Website
My blog post .
I really enjoyed creating this pattern and I love its versatility. It is fairly simple cowl , knit in the round, in slipped stitch pattern.

I have also created knitting pattern for a hat that is based on the same slip stitch pattern.

Both patterns use bulky weight yarn, and are very quick knitting projects. For the sample published originally on I Like Knitting website I used Cascade 128 Superwash wool  in Grey color as MC and three blue colors as CC. For the hat samples I have used a variety of bulky weight yarn, in various colors to show the pattern in different colors.

Stripes KAL

Petunia
As you can see in my previous posts I had three knitting patterns published earlier this month. The patterns were exploring different knitting techniques. This made me think about the next KAL I host in my group on Ravelry. The Gift KAL is over and I will announce the winners later today. Since I am still not able to knit due to my elbow injury and I cannot work on the toy mystery KAL yet I have  decided to devoted this month KAL to a knitting technique I actually really enjoy: Stripes. 
I will open the new thread in my group on Ravelry and the theme of the KAL is anything with stripes. Join my group and have fun knitting anything with stripes....

Knitting Pattern for Brie's Cowl

Brie's Cowl
Another of my knitting patterns was recently published. Brie's Cowl is one of the knitting patterns in the latest Knitpicks book named Yarn Over. The entire collection is all about variety of brioche knitting techniques.
I have worked my sample in Preciosa Tonal Worsted Ballet colorway. The color reminds me of my pink Lillie of the valley. The flowers were blooming at the time I was working on the sample and the pattern. The actual sample in the book collection was knit in another beautiful colorway named Summer Sky.

Happy New Year!

Scraptastic Scarf & Cowl


Hello everyone,
The past few years we have started the New Year with a brand new toy mystery KAL.
I was planning to do that again, but life happens.

My elbow got injured and I have not been able to knit for few weeks. Things are slowly improving and our toy mystery KAL will happen at some point later this year.

In the meantime I wish you a prosperous Happy New Year. May your days be filled with health, laughter, fun, and friends.

Thank you for visiting and reading my blog over the years.
