I may change the name of the regular Friday post to Friday Favorites. I will still post free patterns but I am also going to throw in one or two of my new Ravelry favorites which will most likely not be free. There is just too much good stuff being designed.
This week I have Dragonfly Fibers on the brain. Kate is bringing mostly fingering and lace to the Trunk Show tomorrow, so I thought it would be nice to find a couple of free patterns that would pair up nicely.
First up. Maanel’s Less is More Shawl. This is a larger triangular shawl. I just saw Espace Tricot’s version in a gradient…really nice.
Next, I found this pretty Cardigan from Knitty. It is the Bloc Party Cardigan by Kathleen Dames. It looks like 3 skeins of Pixie or Dragon Sock would do the trick..not too much $$$ for a sweater. 🙂
Now there are two patterns that I really really like that were just released. The Oresund gloves by Kristen Kapur. I’m not always into gloves but these really struck me. Maybe it is the color…or the big simple cable…I don’t know, but I wish I had them. One skein of Magnolia Worsted…or Magpie Swish…
And this one is for the Men. Finally, Thea Coleman released a sharp men’s sweater! This one is simple yet interesting. Zacapa. Lots of worsted in the shop to choose for both of these projects!
I hope this wasn’t overkill.
Also…don’t forget Super Bowl Sunday you get to draw for your discount off total purchase! You are guaranteed at least 10% off. If the weather is going to get bad (I know…I wasn’t going to mention it) we might open early Sunday. I’ll send a Sunday Status Update email and post on FB as usual.
