Lace Charm Hat and Cowl Set

I’ve just finished working on my new knitting design – Lace Charm Hat and Cowl Set. This beautiful and elegant pair of accessories is a perfect piece of wardrobe for this winter. Cosy cowl drapes so beautifully around the shoulders while the hat keeps me warm and stylish. I’m so pleased with the result! And, yes, I've made the matching hat for my little one too :)

Both hat and cowl are knitted in the round with pretty pattern which combines lace stitch and cables. The set is knitted with Drops Baby Alpaca Silk yarn in shades 1306 and 3125. It is Sport weight yarn.

The hat is knitted with two strand of yarn.

The cowl is knitted with one strand of yarn.

The knitting pattern for this set was successfully test knitted on Ravelry. Thank you so much to all my test knitters for all their time and help!

Country Vest

Despite my huge knitting experience, I had thought that knitting with large needles is not for me. For many years I’ve been knitting with needles form size 2.5 mm to 4.0 mm. “Large needles are for lazy knitters, who want a quick result” I thought. But I was so wrong! Once I’ve tried knitting with super bulky yarn I became very addicted to it. There is some magic in this process and in every stitch. Also it is not so quick as I thought. The super bulky yarn is not spine so tight as chunky or aran yarn and knitting with it requires more attention to every stitch. But the result is so beautiful.
For my first super bulky project I’ve chosen The Wool from we are knitters. I wanted to make simple universal and stylish garment. So I’ve made my Country Vest!

I knitted my vest with my favorite twisted stitch rib and open front. However the width of front parts is big enough to close it with a shawl pin or other fastener.

To simplify the assembly and reduce the quantity of seams I shape the shoulder using two sizes of knitting needles and join front and back parts with three needles bind off along the shoulder line.

Also for a beautiful edge along the armholes and front opening I knitted the edge stitches in every row.

I’m so happy with the result.

Fancy Twist Hat and Cowl Set

I’ve been knitting a lot for my kids recently but today I’d like to share a knitting project which I knitted for myself for this Fall.

It is super cozy and super stylish Fancy Twist Hat and Cowl Set.
It was my first experience with bulky yarn from We Are Knitters. I used The Petite Wool in Spotted Beige colour for my set. I absolutely love the result and this super soft and super warm yarn.

The hat body is knitted with pretty twisted stitch rib back and forth but the brim of hat is knitted in the round in order to avoid seam on the edge. The matching cowl is knitted with combination of two stitches and can be worn in different ways.
