If Six Was Nine
This charming eyelet cowl designed by Beth Theuring will make a lovely gift. It may be made in a variety of yarn weights, from fingering to bulky and on a variety of loom gauges and sizes. Adding repeats is as easy as one, two, three!
Sunny Day Spa Set
Brenda Myers has put together a collection of four patterns for this exquisite spa set. Packed with the technique Brenda is famous for, these are sure to be your new favorite gifts.
Sunny Day Basket: A beautiful, seamless design made to fit over a simple food storage container, this basket is not only practical, it has a brilliant construction.
Sunny Day Backscrubber: The clever design of this scrubber results in an intricate look, but do not tell – it is just i-cord and loops. Only Brenda could have thought of it.
Sunny Day Turban: An increase here, a decrease there, and you will have the perfect after-bath turban. This pattern is jam-packed with technique, but knit stitches and e-wraps do all of the work.
Sunny Day Facial Scrubby: It seems a shame to call these little beauties scrubbies. With their picot edging they make beautiful doilies, coasters and jar toppers. Fast and easy, these are sure to be your new favorites.
Panda Earflap Hat for Kiddos
So cute you will want to make one for the kiddos you know and the big kid in you as well. Kathy Norris has designed a simple yet stylish panda hat. Pom poms dangle on long i-cords below the earflaps, while panda eyes and ears charm you from above.
Practical lace. Janet Rekesius has taken the most practical of items, a bottle carrier, and made it a special gift with lacy fabric. Customize your carrier for large or small bottles, and you are off and running.
Just a Duck Hat
The sweet simplicity of Kathy Norris’s baby duck hat will charm you and the little ones you make it for. As Kathy says: “Because every baby deserves a duck hat.”
The colorwork and short row shaping of this sideways knit hat is going to intrigue you, and the pattern will delight you. Janet Rekesius has written a stunning pattern you will want to make over and over again.
Checkers for Tea
A tea cozy that wants to be a hat, perhaps? This cozy looks complicated, but the checkers are worked in a simple slip stitch fashion because Renee Van Hoy likes to keep things easy. A tucked ribbed base helps the cozy stand up, and the double stranded interior keeps things nice and warm. Best of all, it may be made on any loom with a multiple of four.
Snugglebug Slipper Socks
You are going to love Snugglebugs from Heather Lynn. Made on a 24 peg large gauge loom, these chunky slipper socks have three sizes and are easily customized to fit the ones you love. A clever bind off closes the toe without a seam.
Half & Half Scrubby
When you need a fast, useful and pretty gift, Heather Lynn’s little scrubby cloth is the perfect answer. A blend of cottons and scrubby yarns, you can use one half for your dishes, the other half for scrubbing your pans. Try it in the bath, too, instead of a loofa.
Seamlessly Cute Bears
Scarlett Royale has designed teddy bears for the little one in your life. Made on any gauge loom with 24 pegs, this sweet pattern uses short rows to shape the arms, legs, tail, head and ears without a single seam.
Shetland Islands Cowl
Great big chunky cables make this cowl stand out. It comes in two sizes, with the smaller making a perfect one skein project. Renee Van Hoy’s easy on the hands cable method makes the cables a breeze. An added plus, it works with a number of different peg counts.
For every time your hands have ached, Paula Maloney has designed a clever and practical solution – a loom knit padded handle cozy. Customize it for your broom, bicycle, or pan, and keep your hands and those of your loved ones cushioned and protected.
Star Point Hat
Peggy Overbey has designed a unique sideways knit hat with a surprise on the top – lace star points. You may knit this with the top open for a pony tail, or stitch the points closed to show off the beautiful star design.
Star Point Scarf
A companion to the Star Point Hat, Peggy Overbey’s scarf takes the star point lace and creates a stunning scarf with short row lace edging. Together they make a beautiful gift set.
