Venetian Carnival Cowl

Yes, another Venetian Carnival Cowl. When I published this pattern, I know I mentioned that I don’t publish a pattern unless I enjoyed it immensely. So, yes, I did make another one.

I just love the Madelinetosh Merino Light, in any color! I don’t think they have a bad colorway, TBH. These buttons are actually plastic and I try to grab them whenever I see them at a store. They add no weight to the piece and are washable.

Venetian Carnival testing is wrapping up…

Testing is just about complete and the pattern should be out on or near August 15th. I will make it available here, so I hope you check back.

I’m liking this piece much more in Madeline Tosh Merino Light, shown here in Nebula (blue), and Nutmeg (gold) but the green (olive) was 2 strands of Malabrigo Lace held together. I think this will be a warm cowl and keep it shape with yarns that have that fuzzy halo about them. A little harder to rip back for a mistake, but worth it.

I need a cranberry one for with my charcoal coat this winter.

Knitting · Sweaters

Denim Cardigan

This has to be the most practical sweater I’ve ever made and I can’t believe the pattern was free. Yes, a free pattern. It’s perfect for work and since I went up a needle size, it truly breathes. The 3/4 sleeves with the lace ends are just a small modification since I prefer upper arm coverage if I’m chilled enough to put on a sweater. I did a single crochet around the neck as a stay stitching so it won’t stretch out hung on my office chair.

Summer Waves Cardi by Vera Sanon is a sweater I know I’ll make again.

Black Cherry Scarf

I tend to make some of the same things over and over and that’s when I know people might also enjoy the pattern. If I can’t make it at least a few times, in several yarns, I doubt people will enjoy it. Here is the Blossomy pattern, again, in some leftover Madelinetosh Sock from Annalisa’s Shawl.

Blossomy – a new pattern coming soon

I have a new pattern being tested right now that should be out before the month is over. It’s not a hard pattern, but has enough twists and turns to be a quick challenge. The feedback so far has been positive and I’ve made two and can’t imagine parting with either. It’s written for sock yarn, but for a warmer or faster project, you could just move up to a heavier yarn and go up a few hook sizes. The body part will go faster, too.

Here is Blossomy, a crocheted scarf pattern …
