Simple Ridges Shawlette Pattern - $5.00

Simple Ridges Shawlette

Simple Ridges Shawlette was designed to showcase the beautiful Queensland Kathmandu yarn, although any yarn can be used. No gauge is given since any yarn can be used. There's no lace, just simple knitting and purling, and basic increases. Because of its shape, the shawl rests on your shoulders without the need for a shawl pin or button. It's knit top-down with two options for a crocheted edging (US terminology used).

SCARVES

Fiddlehead Scarf - $5.00

Fiddlehead Scarf

This scarf was inspired by fiddlehead ferns. It is knit sideways in an elongated triangle, with the fiddleheads CROCHETED as you go. There is an increase and decrease chart available on Google Docs (linked in pdf pattern) if you need it, but I think the instructions are pretty clear, thanks mostly to my wonderful testers nickersr and Lousquared! There is a photo tutorial for working the fiddleheads as well.

Gauge for this scarf is not really important. It can easily be lengthened by adding more repeats to the center section.

Supplies needed: 215 - 315 yds of worsted weight yarn (Berroco Vintage used in sample shown), US size 8 (5mm) knitting needles and size G crochet hook.

The Sl-ouch! - FREE!

Slouch Hat

"Sl-ouch!" is a slouchy hat with a wide, double-thick brim. It's so named because I knit it while I had a sore shoulder. Call it dedication, or call it a glutton for punishment, but I had to see it through. This is the result! I came up with it while working on my 1 Infinite Loop hat. I devised a new way (at least I've never come across it) of working a provisional cast on for the "Sl-ouch!". A photo tutorial is provided in the pattern.

Supplies needed: approximately 150 yds of worsted weight yarn, US size 7 (4.5mm) circular knitting needles, US size 9 (5.5mm) circular knitting needles and DPNs, Size K (6.5mm) crochet hook, tapestry needle, stitch marker.
