New Pattern: "Auryn"

Happy 2019! This is the first pattern of the new year for me. Do you recognize the name? I’ll give you a hint— it’s from a movie from the ‘80s. I’ll give you the answer at the end of the post.

“Auryn”

I intentionally tried to design this pattern to look like a snowflake because it the holiday season when I was working on it. My favorite part is probably the large circle openings—they turned out very round and I really like the small point at the top of them.

This pattern is only 27 rounds so it works up very quickly. There are some tall stitches within this one, but nothing more than I usually incorporate.

The name of the pattern comes from “The Neverending Story.”

New Pattern: "Ingrid"

I remember when I was working on this pattern, I put it down for at least a week because I lost my motivation. This is normal, and so I usually try to take that time to focus on something else I enjoy. And then after a few days, I usually find my inspiration.

I wanted to experiment with larger spaces. Large spaces tend to make me a little nervous because they can get really loose. However, these worked out really well. I like the openness they create— a very lacy look.

I hope you enjoy working this pattern. I chose to use blue this time, instead of natural, and I’m glad I did.

New Pattern: "Millicent"

I just adore how these pineapples came to be. They are very textured, just as I imagined they would be when I started designing them. When you work on them, do not worry about the way that they pull together. They will cup while you work, but they block beautifully.

This pattern does not contain any overly-complicated stitches. I did challenge myself to make this with 6 repeats instead of my usual 8. I know some people like to make clocks out of doilies, and having repeats divisible by 6 makes that possible.

New Pattern: "Tegan"

When I began this pattern, I wanted to do a different type of strip than the normal one. And then I remembered the strips I incorporated in one of my older patterns, “Margaret.” So I decided to use those same strips, but much further out from the center. They provide a very unique texture for a flowery center.

This piece finished to about 14-inches in diameter. I used 426 yards (71g) of size 10 thread. There aren’t any complicated stitches involved in this pattern more so than my other patterns.

New Pattern: "Athelia" Shawl

I can’t believe I did it! I started this project back in March and became quickly frustrated with how difficult it is to design a shawl (with little to no practice). I’ve only ever made a virus shawl, so my experience with shawls was very limited. However, I really wanted to learn how to do this, so I picked up more yarn and started over.

01r.png

Initially I began with just one color, but I found that it did too good of a job of hiding stitches, so I started over again and chose two colors instead. That wouldn’t be the last time I started over, however. I frogged this project so many times that my yarn was pleading with me in the end to stop.

The biggest challenge for me was determining when to increase on the ends. It sounds easy, but when your stitches are so varied, the increases can be weird. I found that if I opted to “always increase, no matter what” it would work out much better. Eye-balling the piece just wasn’t doing it. I had to increase no matter what.

I’m over the moon with how this turned out. I got to use my blocking wires, which I rarely do. The density of the fabric is so thick and warm and perfect for this upcoming season.

You can purchase this pattern using either the Ravelry button or the direct purchase button below. It is only available in English. It is currently 50% off for the first 24-hours and will return to full price tomorrow at 5pm EST.
