The Gift Of Knitting Designs Anniversary + Sale Coupon Code

Happy Wednesday, dear friends! I wasn’t feeling 100% the last days, hence the blog silence… But I have something amazing to celebrate this week – it’s been one year since I published my first pattern! I can hardly believe it. Reindeer went live December, 13th, and it will always be a special day for me. A pattern for me is more than just a set of instructions, but a way to communicate my great love for the craft and for the fiber community that has been nothing but supporting, friendly and inspiring for so many years.

Today I would love to thank you from all my heart for your constant support and encouragement, without it I’d be afraid to put my ideas and stitches into words. Seeing your projects, reading your comments and emails makes me really really grateful.

Each of the sweaters I designed throughout the year has a special place in my heart. They are all so different, but each of them, hopefully, shows the beauty of a knit stitch, its infinite possibilities, the texture and drape of the knit fabric and the coziness of knitwear.

Cable Cardigan Pattern

Reindeer. Cable Cardigan Pattern.

Reindeer was born in my head in summer 2015. I always loved experimenting and rarely took notes of my knitting adventures. But for some reason this time I stopped and took careful notes of every single thing that was happening on my needles. It wasn’t as fun as just knitting, but seeing a piece of knitwear taking shape not only on the needles, but also on the piece of paper made me so happy!

Reindeer is a simple cardigan with beautiful cable panel running on the back and textured bands framing the whole piece.

La Flor. Textured Sweater Pattern.

I must say it is one of the most wearable pieces in my wardrobe. I always wanted to have a very basic sweater covered in speckles of texture.

I wanted to write a pattern that would be perfect for TV knitting, but will still keep you interested. It’s very simple to knit and to wear. I want to make another version for myself, in a different fiber. Maybe baby alpaca, that would create such a beautiful drape!

Journey. Cable Sweater Pattern.

My dear Journey… I can’t express how grateful I am for “meeting” Ioana from Moeke Yarns one day and starting this little adventure together.

I love this sweater. Its texture, the shape, the color,the yarn – everything about it! I am also incredibly happy and grateful watching your projects flying off your needles in such a short time!

The Choice. 2-in-1 Cardigan Pattern.

The Choice was a labor of love! It was the most challenging pattern to write, but at the end it turned out the most detailed and thorough set of instructions I have ever written. I really wanted to basically take your hand and walk you through every single step of the process in and show you that any knitwear piece can be recreated without any difficulty when following a step-by-step very detailed pattern.

The Choice is so much fun to knit and it’s amazing to wear. I am really happy with the way it fits, drapes and holds its structure. So looking forward to your versions!

The Choice. Cable Cardigan Pattern.

And to celebrate one year anniversary I am running 20% sale on all the patterns in my Ravelry store until Friday, December, 16th, the end of the day, with the coupon code REINDEER. Please, enjoy!

Thank you for your support! It means a lot!

The Choice. Cable Textured Cardigan Pattern.

T H E  C H O I C E for M O E K E  Y A R N S

The Choice. Cable Cardigan Pattern.

The Choice cardigan is live! Knit in Moeke Elena yarn, the cardigan is a fun mix of traditional and modern knitting worlds. Raw organic wool spun on a hundred year old mill turned into a cozy and versatile knitwear piece for a 21st century knitter.

The Choice is a 2-in-1 pattern that provides two complete patterns with very detailed instructions how to knit the cable back version and the plain textured back. This little modification not only drastically changes the look of the cardigan, but also its fabric – cables create more structure on the back, whether a simple textured stitch creates a beautiful fabric with nice drape. You can knit one version and come back to the second one months (maybe years?) later and try it in different color or fiber! This way you are already familiar with the construction and the rhythm of the pattern, but you are still making something different that will keep things fresh and interesting!

The Choice. Cable Cardigan Pattern.

The Choice. Cable Cardigan Pattern.I am absolutely in love with the simple textured cardigan’s “background” stitch. First of all it is so easy and fast to knit! I don’t mind purling at all, but I know that some knitters prefer to avoid it as much as possible. Well, this stitch has less purls in it than a stockinette stitch! Its small stitch repeat makes it super easy to incorporate the increased stitches and keep the pattern flowing. And these little “nubs” create a fabric with character. Elena yarn‘s slightly uneven thread adds another dimension to the texture, which I absolutely adore! The fabric looks and feels alive!

The Choice. Cable Cardigan Pattern.The Choice is pretty fitting on the back, but has a very generous ease in the front. You can wear the neckbands folded up with the wrong side showing (this will create an additional texture contrast) or you can wrap yourself in its cozy texture to have some protection from chilly winds.

The Choice. Cable Cardigan Pattern.

The Choice is a top-down seamless cardigan with the neckband knit simultaneously with the main body of the garment with the use of short rows to avoid pulling of the fabric, which means when you bind off – you are done! I experimented quiet a lot with the yoke shaping, at the end I used the compound raglan, which created a natural line that runs from the neck to the base of the armhole.

The Choice. Cable Cardigan Pattern.

The cardigan is graded for 7 sizes and it is definitely not easy to put the instructions for all the sizes in a clear and understandable format (I admit, I wanted to give up at one point!), so I decided to write yoke instructions for each size individually in a separate PDF file. It took a lot of time, but I think it was so worth it – now you can just print the instructions for your size and follow row by row, without getting lost in numbers and different sizes!

There is one more unusual thing that I tried in this pattern – so called Yoke Tables for each size. Basically it is a table which gives you a general picture of what is going on in the yoke shaping and helps you to keep track of all the increases, neckband short rows, cable crosses and stitch counts. You will also find it in your copy of the pattern. I found it extremely helpful when knitting and writing a pattern and my wonderful test knitters, Eva and Timea, also strongly supported the idea of the tables. When I got used to the rhythm of the pattern, I used only the Yoke Tables as a reference, without even looking at step-by-step instructions. It also comes in handy when you leave your WIP for awhile and come back to it later – believe me, you won’t be lost, Yoke Tables help you to know exactly where you left off. But it’s up to you, of course, you can use just the traditional step-by-step row by row yoke instructions.

The Choice. Cable Cardigan Pattern.

The pattern provides a very detailed step-by-step photo tutorial how to start your cardigan. So, if you’ve never knit this kind of construction before (top-down compound raglan + simultaneous seamless neckband), you will still be able to do it without any problem with the help of written + visual instructions. You will also find links to video/photo tutorials for all the techniques used in the pattern.

The Choice is a cocktail of textures – brioche, cables, knit/purl stitch pattern – so you definitely won’t be bored! All of the textures are “framed” by i-cord that is knit simultaneously with the main body and then “meets” with the i-cord bind off at the hem. I-cord finishing is also mirrored on the sleeves.

The Choice. Cable Cardigan Pattern.

Sleeves have a folded cuff, that creates not only a cozy volume around your wrist, but also a beautiful contrast of textures. But if you are not into folded cuffs, you can stop at your wrist level (the pattern lets you know that) and start i-cord bind off right away.

Make The Choice! Giveaway

UPDATE: The pattern will be published on Wednesday, November 9th 🙂 Sorry about the delay, life can get into the way of things sometimes:) Thank you so much for understanding!

Cable Cardigan Pattern

The Choice cable cardigan pattern is ready to be published this Sunday!!! I am so happy about it – I’ve been working on the pattern for 5 months now and it feels so good to put the final touches to it.

Looking at this photo, you probably understand why I called this project The Choice. Basically this is a 2-in-1 pattern that gives you the option to choose to knit either a simple textured back version for a more drapey relaxed look or add some delicious cables for more texture and structure. Fronts are absolutely identical with a squishy simple cable running along a textured neckband. I’ll show you much more photos on the day of publication!

You know how I love modifications and I always wonder how the knit garment would look like if to change this or that. When I was knitting the cable version, I wondered how it would look like without the cables on the back, I put the knitting aside for a couple of days, trying to decide what I really want in the end and then it struck me – why should I choose if I could do both and give a knitter a chance to decide! So, this is how the second version was born.

The Choice is a top-down completely seamless cardigan with the neckband knit simultaneously with the main body, which means – when you are done, you are done!! The pattern is graded for 7 sizes (XS – 3XL), with very detailed step-by-step instructions and lots of photo tutorials. I will post much more details about it on the day of publication, for now let’s get to the exciting part – giveaway!!! Do you remember how much fun we had during our Journey sweater giveaway?

The Choice Cardigan

Cable Cardigan Pattern

Happy Sunday! I hope you had a wonderful week and are enjoying your weekend and your craft projects! As for me, I am working hard on writing the pattern for The Choice cardigan. It’s definitely not the easiest pattern to put into words, but I am trying my best to make it clear and simple.

The testing for the cardigan will start very soon and you will be able to see some photos of the progress. This is really a fun and addictive knit and I am so happy with how it turned out! I am especially pleased with the fit, the yoke grading is taking so much time, but it is so worth it! The Choice is a cocktail of textures, which won’t let you get bored while knitting it, but also simple enough for a relaxing TV knitting.

Cable Cardigan Pattern

As The Choice is the second pattern in Moeke collection, I wanted it to have some kind of connection to Journey – folded sleeves that I love so much in sweaters. In the cardigan they are finished with a simple i-cord that mirrors the hem.

Cable Cardigan Pattern

I can’t wait to share this pattern with you soon! I also have so many ideas for future just-for-fun projects, new tutorials, machine knitting and crochet projects that I would love to share with you here!! I definitely need more than 24 hours a day! 🙂

Have a wonderful day!

Grateful Shawl. Asymmetric Triangular Shawl Free Pattern.

Grateful Shawl

Free Asymmetric Shawl Pattern

My Granny is 70 years old today and I am celebrating here, too far away from her with the free pattern for you! A very simple, but special for me project – Grateful Shawl, made for my Granny back in Russia. I didn’t knit much during my trip, as I felt like I wanted to be 100% with my family and friends, but this simple garter stitch shawl was the perfect companion for long car/train rides, quiet evenings with my family and sleep overs with my girlfriends. I didn’t even notice how I finished it! It stayed with my Granny back in Russia and will remind her of the time we spent together. She recently had a surgery and now is recovering successfully, thus the name of the shawl – Grateful. I am grateful that everything went pretty smoothly, I am grateful for the time we spent together and I am infinitely grateful for her love. She is my true angel.

Project Details

Pattern

The shawl is of classic asymmetric triangular shape. I wrote a quick pattern for it, you are welcome to use it!

Free Asymmetric Shawl Pattern

Yarn

Hawthorne Fingering by Knit PicksI am not really into variegated yarn, being more drawn to solid colors, but once in awhile I crave for fun shades and these skeins were perfect for it! The colors are really nice and two shades complimented each other beautifully; the yarn is light and springy. Having said that, I must admit that I doubt that I will ever knit with this yarn again. Don’t get me wrong – each skein was perfect, but the yarn felt too synthetic to me, maybe it’s 20% of polyamide in the content or the feeling of the superwash wool itself, or maybe I am just too spoiled with all the gorgeous natural fibers I got to work with during the last months, but I didn’t enjoy it running through my fingers. Other than that, it was fun to work with.

Design Details

Shape

Asymmetric triangular shawl. I find this shape one of the most versatile ones and it works great with simple stitches and variegated yarns! Also it is very easy to remember the pattern and knit with “closed” eyes.

Texture

This yarn has a great stitch definition and is perfect for garter – the stitches are perfectly even and pop out.

Free Asymmetric Shawl Pattern


 Asymmetric Shawl Free Pattern

The shawl is knit sideways from the corner with the attached 3-stitch I-cord edge that is knit simultaneously with the main fabric to a create smooth and neat edge and avoid finishing later.

Free Asymmetric Shawl Pattern

MATERIALS

Yarn. 2 skeins of Hawthorne Fingering by Knit PicksThe estimated yardage is approximately 700 yds.

Note: What is great about this shawl is that you can use any yarn from your stash. You can also use less or more yarn for your project. I was basically knitting until both skeins were finished, leaving just enough yarn to bind off. I was alternating the skeins every two rows. You are free to knit in solid color or set up your own stripe sequence – stripes/color blocks, the opportunities are really endless!

Needles. 2.5 mm (US 1).

Note: Again the needle size is very flexible. Just go with the one that is the best fit for your yarn and the fabric you want to create.

GAUGE

20 stitches and 48 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in garter stitch.

Note: The exact gauge is not essential in this project, the most important thing is that you like the fabric in your swatch. 

SIZE

Note: The shawl is knit from the corner, so you are in full control of its size and can easily adjust it and stop whenever you feel like it.

ABBREVIATIONS/STITCHES

  • k – knit
  • k2tog – knit two together
  • LH – left hand
  • p – purl
  • RH – right hand
  • RS – right side
  • sl – slip
  • ssk – slip, slip, knit
  • st (sts) – stitch (stitches)
  • WS – wrong side
  • wyib – with yarn in back
  • wyif – with yarn in front
  • yo – yarn over

INSTRUCTIONS 

I am going to walk you through the beginning of the shawl. To see a bigger photo, open it in the new tab.

The shawl starts with the provisional cast on. There are several ways to do that, you can check this video – Provisional Cast-Ons – and choose your preferred method. I am using Crochet Provisional Cast-On here.

Now you have 9 starting stitches. First and last three sts will create the I-cord edging (see the arrows), the central 3 sts are the starting point of your shawl main body.

Free Asymmetric Shawl Pattern

Now the fun part starts!

Row 1 (RS): Sl 1 wyib, sl 1 wyif, k1; yo, knit to last 3 sts; k1, sl 1 wyif, p1.

Row 2 (WS): Sl 1 wyib, k1, sl 1 wyif; k2tog, k to last 3 sts, yo; sl 1 wyif, k1, p1.

Repeat Rows 1-2 until the desired depth of the shawl.

When the shawl reaches the desired size, start I-Cord Bind off.

You will get to the point when you have 3 I-cord sts on your RH needle and 3 sts left on your LH needle. Graft these stitches together to “close” the I-cord edging.

Free Asymmetric Shawl Pattern

Weave in all ends. Block the shawl.

Blocking is really essential in this project, don’t skip it! Your shawl will open up and bloom!

You are done!! Enjoy your shawl!

Journey. Cable Sweater Pattern.

J O U R N E Y  for  M O E K E  Y A R N S

Cable Sweater Pattern

After months of work J O U R N E Y sweater is finally published today! Before I get to the description of the pattern I would love to thank people who made this project possible. First of all, Ioana, the founder of Moeke Yarns, and her family that has been working so hard to bring this amazing yarn to knitters. I am so grateful to Ioana for trusting me and giving me full creative freedom with the pattern, for her constant support and encouragement all these months. My test knitters, Josh and Saskia, helped tremendously in creating the final version of the pattern. I would never be able to do that on my own! And, of course, to YOU, my friends, for your support and love! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

I would also love to thank my husband who believes in me so much more than I believe in myself and every time I say “I can’t” is always there to support me. He surprised me with an amazing poem he wrote for J O U R N E Y  that  I really want to share with you here, I think it will resonate with so many people!


Journey

My path has taken me so far,
To places I’ve seen not before,
The journey, following my star,
This journey started in a blur.

My search was long, not easy too,
What I was looking for – knew not
And yet, I felt the need to follow through,
I felt the lesson I was being taught.

Yes, I have been so lost at times,
At others I have felt alone,
I did condemn myself of crimes
When I was facing the unknown.

Yet I pursued, I persevered,
I felt this journey had to be,
I’ve followed through, my view I’ve cleared,
It took much time to finally see:

This journey helped me to become
Who I am now so proud to be,
There was a time for it to come,
For it to make me finally free.

It built this person I am now,
It strengthened up my faith in me,
I’ve learned the lesson: I know how
The journey destined me to see.

Poem by Anatoliy Schneider.


Back to the pattern!

Cable Sweater Pattern

When Ioana contacted me and offered to create a small collection of patterns with Moeke, I got excited and scared at the same time. At that time I was in not a very creative stage in my life and I guess this collaboration was like a breath of fresh air that I needed to recharge and start over. The moment I took Elena skein in my arms, I fell in love. This yarn is so alive! And I immediate knew that it would be great for texture and cables that I love so much in knitwear.

The design of a sweater started to take shape in my head – it was a classic pullover, fitting at the shoulders and sleeves and slightly lose in the main body. Relaxed, modern and covered in texture. I always feel like cables are the best way to “know” and enjoy your yarn. All these stitch crossings allow you to really feel the yarn and appreciate it. And, believe me, Moeke is worth to spend time with! The yarn is rustic, sturdy and durable. It holds the shape perfectly and I know I will wear this sweater for many years to come.

Cable Sweater Pattern

Elena‘s natural undyed color is versatile and showcases the cables impeccably, making stitches stand out. The texture of the thread itself creates a very interesting effect on its own; and in combination with cables the unique textile piece is born.

Before I came up with the final combination of these stitch patterns, I made dozens of swatches, matching and combining them in different ways. I wanted to make a classic Aran sweater, but with the modern touch. I can’t say exactly why I combined these stitch patterns that came from completely different places, but it felt right. As soon as I put the swatches next to each other, I knew it – I found it!

Cable Sweater Pattern

I know that some knitters don’t block their knits, but, believe me, with Moeke you just can’t deprive your piece of knitwear of a nice bath, because after the blocking this yarn opens up incredibly beautiful! It has just enough drape that doesn’t make the fabric stiff, but still holds the shape perfectly!

I see you wearing J O U R N E Y during chilly fall and winter mornings in the house; bundled up in it during your walk in the city or in the woods… I really hope that both the process of creating and wearing it will be enjoyable for you, just like it was for me.

Cable Sweater Pattern

Sweater Details

J O U R N E Y is a modified drop shoulder pullover. The sweater body is knit bottom up. You join to knit in a round after creating side splits. This little detail gives you more room in the hip area and creates nice visual affect. The stitch pattern that “fills in” the space between cables took me more time to find than the cable stitches. I was looking for something that is slightly stretchy, textured, but easy and fast to knit; and at the same time something that would look harmonious with the cable stitches. I am happy to say that this variation of the classic rib stitch is perfect!

After you are done with the body, you will join the shoulders using the three-needle bind off method and then will start knitting sleeves in the round top down, creating the cable, mirroring the side cables on the main body. The sleeves are knit extra long to create a folded cuff. You can easily modify the length of a sleeve and adjust the length of a cuff by trying the garment on.

Cable Sweater Pattern

The neckline is classic and is knit holding two strands of yarn for a more sturdy and durable effect. You are also free to experiment and make the neckband more narrow for a more open neckline look.

Cable Sweater Pattern

The sample is knit with 4″-5″ of ease, but you can easily play around with it.

For a more tailored look choose the size with 2″ of ease; for a more relaxed look – 6-10″ of ease.

Cable Sweater Pattern

The pattern provides detailed measurements of the garment and charts for all stitch patterns with written instructions.
