Extra-crazy land brings you FIVE December patterns of the month!

5 December patterns!

It’s officially holiday knitting time!  And this month, to help out with your gifty plans, I’ve got FIVE patterns of the month to share with you!  Get one…get all five!  Each is free with the purchase of suggested yarn through the end of December and each is a fairly quick to knit gift for some lucky recipient in your life (or for you, if you are one of those smart, selfish knitters).

Elizabeth’s Scarf

First up – Elizabeth’s Scarf.  This is, by far, the quickest of all of them.  Made with 1 hank of Trendsetter Improv, this quick keyhole scarfy/cowl can easily be done in one evening.  Totally unique…and a new spin on all the ruffles in the land.

Tween Set

Not just for your notoriously hard-to-please tweens, this pattern gives instructions for a child, tween, or adult for both this super cute pixie ear-flap hat and wristies.  The Tween set pattern also includes a variation for regular decreases in case your adults might want earflaps without having to dip into pixie land.  This set uses 2 hanks (alternate colors, but you can go solid if you want) of Cascade 128 Superwash.

Flaming skirt

Ever since I released Bellflower, bigger kids (including adults) have been been saying, “But I want one in my size!” The Flaming Skirt is your answer! Everything is written out for up to a 32” waist, but I’ve included details in the pattern notes so that you can make it any size, with any gauge yarn as the base.  This pattern calls for varying amounts of Cascade 220 (superwash is best, but you do what you gotta do) and 1 ball of Katia Triana.

Double Cuff Mittens

These Double Cuff Mittens are brought to you by childhood trauma of ice bits and freezing wind getting into the sleeves of my coats. If I had these mitts then, I might be normal (ha!). An inner cuff, knitted out of fingering weight wool tucks under the cuff of your coat, while the main mitten goes over the cuff of your coat leaving NO ENTRANCE for ICE and SNOW (or wind)! So very warm! 🙂  The mitts use one hank of Noro Odori and about 100 yards of fingering weight wool…I’m guessing you all have bits of leftover sock yarn, so this pattern is free with the purchase of just one hank of Noro Odori.

Capas Cowl

And last, but definitely not least because it is my absolute favorite of the 5….Capas Cowl.  The Capas cowl is made in two layers…the inner layer being ribbed so it snuggles right around your neck and makes you about as warm and happy as can be.  It’s made with just one hank of our new Noki which is a supremely delightful merino/silk fingering weight yarn.  Seriously…you’ll be sad it’s just a one-skein project because you won’t want to stop knitting with it.

And there they are….ready, set……ding-a-ling….falala…or something like that!
