If you are knitting or have already knit a pattern that I’m talking about, leave me a comment and I’ll update my post with a link to your version. If you’ve written up a pattern and you want me to link to it, send me an email or leave me a comment and I’ll post it! It makes the list longer and my job easier.
- I go crazy for anything damask, so this handbag is right up my alley. Damask is the name, HOTTT with three Ts is the game.
- I love this name. The Manitou Passage Scarf. It reminds me of the “Huron” Christmas carol we were taught when we were kids. I don’t know about you, but my parents were pseudo-hippies and they sent me to summer camps where we learned to play inuit music, and from the few native celebrations I’ve seen on the tee-vee I can tell y’all it ain’t no Huron carol. Oh here we go; ya, written by a Jesuit in the hopes of befriending the Hurons. Looks like he was martyred by the Iroquois shortly after the Huron nation was wiped out by smallpox. Well, that was a cheerful story.
- For those of you who like to shop in the greenest way possible, Elisa’s Nest Tote is an alternative to plastic shopping bags. PDF here, example here.
- Here’s a quick mini-pattern for a guy called Mr. Peen. As a hint to what he is, let me just warn you that this might not be SFW.
- Pondemonium is a baby sweater WITH LILLY PADS FOR ELBOW PADS and it is SO CUTE and you should KNIT IT if you have a BABY.
- Barbara has an adorable Fuzzy Lamb pattern with a handy Flickr pool. Look at this cute little aran sweater!
- Who’da thunk it?! There’s a favourite pattern of mine in one of Phildar’s French-only magazines called “Colchique” (or at least that’s what the internet is calling it). I didn’t bother buying the magazine because I’m not familiar yet with French patterns, but now I don’t have to! The French version is being offered for free at the Colchique-Along (PDF here), and it’s accompanied by a rough English translation.
- I’m not the hugest fan of the clothing patterns that Lion Brand puts out, but I like the look of these two crocheted tops designed for Cotton Ease. They’re getting better at styling over there, I guess. Here’s the Light ‘n Lively Tank and Cotton-Ease Tunic. They’ve also got some nice footlets.
- Strangling Vine is a free pattern with a twist. You have to do a good deed first before she’ll email you the pattern. I love it!
