Grass Stained Jeans

Last weekend, I was playing with the dyes and yarn, with a whole new colorway as a result: Grass Stained Jeans

I love these colors. The jeans blue is a little variegated, and the streaks of green complement the blue well. This skein would be perfect for small shawl projects like the Graphic Kerchief by The Uncommon Thread, or the Hitchhiker shawlette that thousands have knitted. It would also be perfect together with a more solid yarn in a stripey shawl.

I will most definitely try to repeat this color!

Pattern: *Starbuck*

Time for another pattern release: *Starbuck*!

My first sweater design, but oh how I love it!

 

It’s a relatively simple sweater, worked top down, without any seams. I’ve used the contiguous method for the shoulder & sleeve shaping, a method which at the moment is my preferred one for sweaters. I love the effect of the silver colored DK weight yarn together with the fingering weight black yarn on bigger needles – it makes the sweater cozy, slouchy if I want it, but it could also be worn more fitted!

See the Ravelry pattern page for Starbuck here, or

 

 

Pattern: Squishy Short Rows

I have just released a new pattern, called Squishy Short Rows. It is a cowl worked on big needles with any weight of yarn – my initial sample was in lace weight, the second in worsted weight. My testers have tried different yarn weights, and it all comes out fantastic!

I have made my versions in a color changing yarn and in different colors, to show off the construction better. It is of course possible to knit it in one color only – it will show off hand dyed or handspun yarns beautifully!

For more information, check out my personal blog, or the Ravelry pattern page, where the pattern is for sale.

New: list of patterns

I have now added a list of available patterns designed by me or for Knitter’s Kitchen – you will be able to find them here or in the above menu!

Most of them are free, but I am adding all patterns that are for sale also, to give a full overview. There are links to the original blog post about the pattern, to the Ravelry pattern page and a download or buy no link.

Enjoy – and let me know what you’ve created! :)

Shop open!!

I just opened my Etsy shop!

I got some lovely yarns there. A little taste:

“Granite” on Merino SW Fingering

 

“Bounty Island Ocean” on Sock

 

More yarns are added all the time, and I am also planning to add stitch markers and project bags within the next weeks. Stay tuned – and go have a look!
