Read an article by Faith Parke-Dodge on the Southeast Llama Rescue. Learn how to work slip stitch and mosaic patterns with a tutorial by Erin Birnel. Or try something different and crochet and line a classic tea cozy with a tutorial by Darleen Hopkins.
In the knitting pattern section you’ll find eight cozy pieces to wear on a quiet day at home. Wrap yourself up in a heavy cabled shawl by Jennifer Weissmen. Toss Erin Birnel’s colorful blanket on the back of your couch so you’re ready for a cold spell. Wrap yourself in garter stitch with a sweater by Andi Satterlund. Cory Ellen Boberg’s mosaic headband will keep your hair tidy and drafts off your ears. Replace your favorite hoodie with an attractive pullover sweater by Paola Albergamo. Mitts by Lee Meredith will stylishly warm your knuckles while leaving your fingers free to knit. And don’t forget to mind your feet! Keep your toes toasty with snuggly socks by Ariel Altaras or stranded colorwork slippers by Susanna Winter.
As always, check out the Pattern Prep section to plan a successful project, and explore the To Knit To section for suggestions from our designers on what to watch, read, or listen to while you craft.
