2 weeks till Christmas

Time to get serious.  With just two weeks of knitting time grab a bulky yarn, some big ol’ needles, a fast knitting pattern, and a strong cup of coffee and get to it.

Twinkle Hat by The Knit Cafe

This is a brand new pattern from the Knit Cafe.  You can find it on Ravelry and purchase it there.  It is made with two strands of Berroco Flicker held together to make a bulky weight yarn.  It is easy to do.  You don’t even need to know how to knit in the round to make this pattern.  Heck – you don’t even need to know how to purl.  The shaping is done with a trick called “short row shaping” and there is a pictorial tutorial included in the pattern.
The Flicker yarn is a perfect choice.  The baby alpaca makes this hat super soft with the perfect amount of slouch.

Your First Cable by The Knit Cafe

Also available on Ravelry. This simple cable project looks the same on both sides.  The chunky yarn will make for quick work.  Try it with Berroco Peruvia Quick.

Wonky  by Brittany Wilson

A smaller cowl project for those especially short on time.  The different textures make it an interesting knit.  This is a free pattern from Knitty.com where you’ll find plenty of nice patterns!

This pretty little number is easy-peasy.  The open work details are thanks to dropped stitches.
