One Skein Free Knit Patterns 5 + 1

Good afternoon.

Today I want to help all those knitters who have a skein of yarn left there in the corner.

Sometimes you pick it up, bring it closer to a project, but in the end it always stands alone.

With the free knitting patterns I am proposing, you will certainly know what to do with them.

Let’s go!

1 – February Hat

This hat is heavily worked and is suitable for an intermediate level, but your yarn will certainly be used.

2- Summer Secret Crop

This top is ideal for Summer and warmer afternoons.

3 – One Skein Wonder

A shawl in the shape of a dragon’s tail, a classic of knitting.

4 – Little Creek Buff

I love the ‘wave’ pattern that has been created in this neck warmer.

5 – Garter Ridge Baby Cardigan in Lion Brand Cotton-Ease

And now a pattern suitable for our little ones. Just change the colour to make it ideal for both a boy and a girl.

BONUS

Seaside Summer Crop Top

Since the temperatures are rising, I wanted to add a pattern of a top as soft as a cloud.

Among these free knitting patterns, which one would you like to knit now?

Let me know in the comments!

Black Intensity

Good afternoon

I’m back with a new knitting pattern.

It’s Black Intensity, an oversized jumper I’ve had in my head for a long time.

The idea came about almost by chance, from the need to have a comfortable sweater that could be adapted to different occasions and was lightweight.

And then the pattern slowly took shape.

The middle part is softer, while the sleeves are tighter.

Tip: here, without altering the number of stitches, you can subtract stitches from the body and add them to the sleeves, so that you have a slightly tighter body and wider sleeves.

I used Lana Carezza del Panda in black and beige; 4.50 mm needle.

It is a pattern suitable for an intermediate level as two techniques are used: tubular work and jogless stripes.

Everything is explained in the pattern, as well as including a table with the drawing.

The size is M/L, but as I said before, it can be easily adapted.

You can find the pattern on Ravelry, Lovecrafts, Amazon.

Cancun Boxy Lace Top – Knitting Pattern

Let me introduce you to Cancun, a soft and lacy knitted top, easy to work up even for beginners!

 

It’s freely inspired on Cancun boxy lace top by Erin Kate Archer with some slight alterations to my likings.

Presenting you with it gives me the occasion to show you another side to being a good designer: being able to recognize beauty when and where we see it and being able to credit for it accordingly,

This ability is a great skill nowadays and allows a designer to be inspired by everything without the need for a war for supremacy. Also recognizing someone else did a good job in designing something allow us to bond one another and form long lasting and mutually enriching friendships.

But now to the fun stuff, you surely want to know what I did differently from the original pattern… Below you can find my version. No PDF this time, you will need to read further if you are curious…
