I’ve been tweaking my blog to include a tab for patterns.  These are simple patterns and nothing complicated or earth-shattering.  But I want to share them and they’re free!

I wanted to knit a sample pair of socks using the yarn I’ve been dyeing up to sell at our summer market booth.  I wanted to make sure that it knit up well, was soft and smooshy (very important) or I wouldn’t want to sell it.   But they knit up really well, soft and smooshy, and here they are…


This is a pattern that I made up a few years ago when I was trying to make a unique pair of socks for my husband.  He’s my bestest sock wearer… he’ll wear them year-round.  I like ribbed patterns because they seem to fit well but I wanted to do something with a little more zip and texture than the usual knit / purl ribs.  I’m calling these Diamond Rib Socks (when stretched out the pattern looks like diamonds) and I’ve written up the pattern and posted it here.  I’ll also be including the pattern with the yarn I’ll be selling.

And here are the skeins…  yep, I love colour!

I’ve also included a pattern for the Squishy Ribbed Cowl that I came up with which I knit using 1 skein of Knitpicks Chroma Worsted.

This is also under the “patterns” tab and is here.

I still have more dyeing to do and since it’s a rainy day here, it’s perfect day to get the dye pots fired up!  Have a good weekend 🙂
