New Pattern Release!
Wallaby Way
Choose Your Adventure!
Wallaby Way is a sock pattern designed to be completely customizable. The pattern includes instructions to make cuff down or toe up socks with an afterthought heel or a heel flap and gusset. It also includes instructions for adding a contrasting heel, cuff, and toe.
Wallaby Way features an aquatic themed side panel made up of three different sea creatures: a fish, a jellyfish, and a turtle. Each sea creature has its own charted and written instructions so that you can mix and match the sea creatures on your panel. You can easily knit a pair of socks that features only one of the sea creatures or choose to knit a panel featuring one of each. All you have to do is follow the chart or instructions for the sea creature of your choice, repeating the same chart for a one creature panel or moving on to another chart for a second and third creature.

Method: Magic loop or 2 circular method
Construction: Toe Up with an Afterthought Heel, Cuff Down with an Afterthought Heel, or a Heel Flap and Gusset

New Pattern: Mermaid's Web (Cowl)


Mermaid’s Web
By: Sara Lozzi
This cowl was inspired by the webbing on a Mermaid’s fin. The garter sections alternate between two sizes and are separated by a row of drop stitches.

PDF can be found on ravelry. 



Materials & Tools


·         Yarn:
o   1-2 Skeins of Aran or Bulky Weight yarn.
o   Recommended Yarns:
§  Bulky: Bernat Roving
§  Aran: Bernat Sheep{ish}, Lion Brand Landscapes
§  Any other single plied Aran or Bulky weight yarn
·         Needle Size: 13 US / 9mm
·         Tapestry needle for finishing
Gauge: is not important as long as your fabric is loose and has a nice drape



Cast on:
Aran: 20 stitches
Bully: 15 stitches

Pattern Design:
Row 1-2: Knit

Row 3: Knit each stitch wrapping the working yarn around your needle two times before pulling it through. This creates a stitch with two loops (double stitch).

Row 4: Knit into the first loop of each double stitch letting the second loop drop off the needle.

Row 5-7: knit

Repeat rows 3-7 until desired length ending on row 4

Finishing:

Option 1: Seamed
Bind off and cut yarn leaving a long tail. Using your tail seam cast on and bind off ends together.

Option 2: Seamless
You are going to connect the ends into a loop the same way you would if you were working a folded hem (similar to a 3 needle decrease/bind off).

·         Hold the ends together with the wrong sides facing out. 
 
·         Stick your right needle through the first live stitch (on your left needle) as well as the first cast on stitch (as you would to pick up a stitch).

·         Knit them together as if they were both live stitches in a three needle decrease. Continue in this same manner binding your stitches off as you go.

·         You’re Finished! Weave in ends. Light blocking is optional. Samples were not blocked.
