Here’s a quick hat that takes 1 ball of yarn with 100 meters (109 yards). You can probably make it in one evening. It took me about 90 minutes.
What an extravagant piece of jewelry for a good friend! And best of all, it’s homemade. The bracelets were elaborately knitted and sewn together, using a cardboard tube from a roll of carpet tape as a bracelet form.
These wrist warmers are inspired by Lithuanian beaded wristers that I saw on BritKnitCast website, hosted Carrie Anne Dennison, who attended Woolfest last year.
Here’s an easy cable scarf to match last month’s hat. Both are dedicated to Gail, the former listmom of Knit-U and Knit Design, who passed away suddenly after an illness. She will be missed by many knitters around the globe.
Cables are made when stitches in the knitted fabric cross over each other. You place a few stitches on hold by slipping them onto a cable needle, knit the next two or three stitches, then knit the stitches off of the cable needle. These traveling stitches may move to the right or to the left.
