This single cable hat is the perfect quick project to learn how to make a cable. I love how quickly this project knits up!! In just a couple evenings you can have this hat complete and ready to give away as a gift! We used Cascade Lana Grande a bulky weight, 100% Peruvian Highland Wool in an assortment of rich colors.

Slade

This classic men’s cardigan by Michele Wang would make the perfect gift for the upcoming holiday season! I love the a smoking jacket-style because it can be worn buttoned up giving it a more formal appearance or unbuttoned for a more casual relaxed look.

The deep ribbing at the placket also gives you the option of wearing the collar up or you can fold it down for more of a shawled-collar. This pattern is relaxing while keeping the knitter engaged with the ribbing.

Fall Pumpkins

These little pumpkins are so fun to decorate your table throughout the fall season.  They are super simple to knit! Using a size 1 or 2 needle and one hank of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool (color 168) cast on 64 stitches and join in the round being careful not to twist. You cast on the same amount of stitches for each size pumpkin, just adjust the amount of rows you knit to achieve the different sizes.  Knit 25 rows for the x-small, 30 rows for the small, 40 rows for the medium, 50 rows for the large, and 60 rows for the x-large.

Finish by cinching up each end. Create the pumpkin textured bumps by running strands of yarn from the top and center of the pumpkin to the bottom center of the pumpkin.  Create a 4 stitch I-cord (7 rows) in Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool (color 54) for the stem and attach to each pumpkin. Enjoy!

Briony

Briony by Jenna Murphy is a wonderful topper to just about anything you might wear on a chilly day, whether it be casual or a bit more dressy. The finished product is soft and lofty, and it has a voluminous, cozy feel. I absolutely love all the textures in this project including the choice of yarn. Jenna used 2 skeins of Plymouth Yarn Homestead Tweed in the color Thistle, a 90% wool and 10% donegal blend. The stitch combinations including seed stitch, reverse stockinette, rib, and cables keeps the knitter interested throughout the entire project. This cowl is knit in the round from bottom to top.
