Have you tried double knitting? It's the easiest way to do color work--and these head bands are a great way to start. 2 charts, 2 styles of hems, 2 colors of yarn--Double knit into a great alternate option to a hat--double layering makes them twice as warm. Keep your ears and neck warm, with out the bother of a full hat. Price: $3.00
What could be better? A sunny yellow flower beret to brighten up dull dark days of winter! Not that you have to make a sunny yellow hat--Flowers come in all sorts of colors--pick one that makes your day--or matches your winter coat. Price: $3.00
Sort of slouch hat, sort of ribbed one--a pompom and button tab add a dash of whimsical style. This hat is knit flat, and easy enough for a beginner. Price: $3.00
I call this Cable Hat Syncopated Rhythm--because it knit up to one. Single ribs, double ribs, an odd--(11 stitch) repeat. It's a great little (or not so little!) hat. Made with fine yarn, on small needles, and a fine gauge, its a baby hat--Make it again in aran weight yarn, on medium large needles, and it will fit a large man's noggin! Larger gauge makes also deep brim and taller hat--Its a great hat for the entire family. Price: $3.00
This scarf is a bit of luxury--It can be made with a single skein (albeit a $25 skein) of wool/cashmere blend--or from you favorite lace weigh yarn. What ever the choice of yarn in a short while you too can have a lovely Waterfall of lace. Pretty enough to be a fashion accessory, warm enough to make mockier of cold winter days--Especially if made in a cashmere blend.
The lace pattern is both written out, and charted-- Price: $3.00
First--(and just in time!)The Sweet Heart Hat--the hearts are stranded--and just a small motif--a great firt time stranded work project--and just the perfect thing for Valentine's day.
