It might feel like cheating, but will still produce a neat, tidy center. (Available free to Premium members here.)
Moose Lace Afghan e-Pattern
This attractive, practical afghan is an example of "moose lace", i.e. lace knitted in a heavier yarn than usual. The lace makes this afghan lighter in weight for its size, yet pleasingly warm and snuggly.
Technique Teddy Bear e-Pattern
Knit this small adorable teddy bear and let Teddy help teach you knitting techniques used in shaping 3-dimensional forms.
Easy Asymmetry Wrap e-Pattern
The ideal pattern for creating your own one-of-a-kind designer shawl with a mix of fancy and/or classic yarns. The shaping is done with a one-row super-easy lace pattern that knits naturally on the diagonal.
Choose any 3 yarns in harmonizing colors and a variety of textures to your liking. Each of the three yarns is knit for one row, then the sequence repeated, thus giving lots of color and textural interaction. Have fun!
Heirloom EasyCare 8-ply Yarn
A DK weight yarn in soft natural fibers that is made from high quality merino/merino cross wool, with a cable twist for extra durability. This superwash cable-twist yarn is incredibly soft and bouncy with a memory, and yet will last a lifetime. 50g ball/approx 110 yards. Plan for sweaters at 5½ sts per inch on knitting needles size 6 US/4mm; or for socks at 6½ sts per inch on needles size 2 US/3mm.
Snow is beautiful, especially when you can stay warm and cuddly indoors while knitting snowflakes.
This small snowflake medallion starts at the center and grows in lacy rounds until completed with a free-form lace bind off technique.
