Free knitting pattern! Striped pom pom beanie

Sometimes the most spontaneous knitting projects are the best! I’ve had these colors stiting in my stash for a while and thought- wouldn’t it be cool if I made a pom pom out of these 3 colors? Then I realize that I needed something to put the pom pom on top of- so the striped pom pom beanie came to be!

To make your own striped pom pom beanie, you will need to know:

When changing colors, don’t cut yarn. Carry yarn up as you work. In order to create joggless stripes, we slip the first st. purlwise on the second row of the color change. Here’s a great tutorial on creating joggless stripes in the round!

New Fall 2015 Infinity Scarf Pattern

New Fall 2015 Infinity Scarf Pattern

Arborista cowl pattern margoknits.com

I am so excited to share my latest pattern with you! Some of you may have seen a little preview on Instagram, and it’s finally here and ready to put on your needles! The Arborista Cowl features an alternating pattern of lacy leaves, and contrasting solid ribbing for a truly eye-catching effect.

I wanted a lace pattern, but I also wanted a break in between where I could watch TV. and knit this infinity scarf. (You see where my priorities lie!) I wanted something that captures the spirit of fall (is that too corny?) and something that is truly fashion forward and unique. I think this infinity scarf achieves all of these things- and the pattern is so much simpler that you would imagine!

 

leaves2 leaves4

Details:

The cowl is knit using bulky yarn, for my cowl I chose Cascade 128 Superwash in the colorway: Camel

3 skeins, approximately 384 yards of yarn are used to knit this scarf.

You will also need size 10.5 knitting needles, and a yarn needle for seaming and weaving in ends.

Gauge: 4 sts. & 6 rows = 1″ in stockinette (though since this is an infinity scarf, gauge isn’t terribly important).

Cast on today, and don’t forget to show me your amazing projects on Ravelry! I can’t wait to see this cowl knitted up in every color! As always, if you want to re-sell anything you make from my patterns, you are 100% welcome to! Thanks for supporting an independent designer!

Wow. I’m still amazed by how much this pattern looks like cables. This was one of the most satisfying projects I’ve ever done and here’s why:

1. The pattern was easy to memorize (it’s just knits and purls!!)

2. I could knit this in front of the TV without looking at my knitting (the first time I’ve ever been able to do this)

3. I didn’t mess up once. (The first time this has ever happened.)

I’m so glad I discovered this stitch pattern on Knitting Unlimited! I can see turning this into a longer infinity scarf, fingerless gloves, maybe even a bag or pillow cover….

I think you’ll be addicted to this stitch pattern too as you knit through each row, you’ll start to see how deceptively simple it is. This cowl knitting pattern pairs nicely with a bold merlot, and your favorite binge-worthy show on Netflix.

Ready for the pattern?

Ok, ok, but first you will need:

Size 8US (5mm) 16″ (40cm) circular knitting needles

1 Skein Lion Brand Heartland

Co. 120 sts. & join in the round

In the round:

Rounds 1-4 : p2, k4 to end of round

Round 5: K2, *p2, k4, rep. from * until 4 sts. rem., p2, k2
