1 week till Christmas

More accurately Christmas is still 9 days away . 9 whole days to finish extra bulky projects!  That is more then you need.  Here are a few ideas.

The Burton Bear Cowl by Heidi May

Choose your favorite bear-colour from the Brown Sheep Burly Spun and the little wild-thing on your list will be very happy, and warm too.

The Dogwood Set by Jane Richmond

Both the mittens and the easy ribbed cowl can be found (for free) here.
Made with Spud and Chloe Outer, a chunky blend of cotton and wool that comes in many lovely colours, including this candy pink called “rocket”.

The Rime Frost Cowl by Ida Thue Nielsen

This is a free cowl pattern.  Made in Denmark! Need I say more?

Autumn and Autumn Leftovers by Jane Richmond

At the Knit Cafe you can get this pattern as a “two for one”. Both the gorgeous lady size and the wee baby size come together.  They are knit in giant yarn for fast knitting and fashionable results.

Leaf Blanket by Susan B. Anderson

This will be a much coveted blanket for a new Mom or Dad. Made with Spud and Chloe Outer it will feel nice and soft for the little babe, and it can be thrown in the washer too.

Martin Scarf by The Knit Cafe

A giant sized triangular scarf with a tie-up embellishment!  So easy to make and fast to knit too.  Takes 2 skeins of Brown Sheep Burly Spun.  Find the pattern here.

Big Snowy Owl from the Purl Bee

I like this shot of the Snowy Owl beside the cat.  Firstly- because I just like cats.  Secondly- because it really gives you a sense of the scale of the owl.  He is either quite big or that is a very small cat.  This pattern is free!

Anthropologie Inspired Braided Headwrap by Jen Geigley

Who hasn’t gone into the Anthropolgie Store and thought about knitting up a tribute to one of their offering?  Good ideas are meant to be copied.  Here is one that will be done practically before you begin.

Happy knitting folks – hope you all make it through your knitting projects with time to spare.
Craftily yours
