Winter Ravelry Roundup
This post contains links to Ravelry.
As Spring approaches and the last icy fingers of winter begin to melt away I thought I would do a roundup of my knitting and crochet over the season. Winter is the perfect season for yarn craft. You can make clothes and accessories to keep yourself warm, snuggling up with a cup of tea and your project basket by the fire. Perfection! As a user of Ravelry I thought I would share my projects, my designs, and my favourite patterns and yarns from this winter.
Favourite Pattern on Ravelry
There are a lot of beautiful patterns on Ravelry and some very talented designers out there. I have been ‘favouriting’ away over the last few months but I think this is probably my favourite pattern that I have found this winter. It is Hugo by Veronik Avery, published by Brooklyn Tweed. I think this jumper is so gorgeous! I would love to make it sometime.
Favourite Yarn on Ravelry
Whilst I am not a yarnie and don’t know all that much about yarn, I do know what I think looks pretty. I have kept returning to The Croft – Shetland Tweed by West Yorkshire Spinners. I really love the look of this yarn. Problem is I cant decide which colourway I prefer!
My First Pattern
So in November I started crocheting lots of Christmas Tree ornaments for a Christmas Market in my area. All of the ornaments were of my own design and it was really fun being creative. I wanted to crochet an angel so after a little trial and error I worked out how to make an angel working flat. I decided to write it all up in a pattern and try selling it on Ravelry.
Here is my Snow Angel Ornament pattern.
A Winter Project
I had a ball of Adriafil Knitcol and I was wondering what to do with it. I decided I had enough to make a pair of fingerless gloves so I found a great free pattern on Ravelry. I used the pattern Easiest wrist warmer gloves and changed it a little by knitting them up in stockinette not garter stitch. I ended up with a cute pair of randomly striped fingerless gloves!
That’s all for this Ravelry Roundup! What was your favourite yarn project you accomplished this winter? Let me know in the comments and link to your Ravelry projects, I would love to see them!
