Designer Laurie Sundstrom is a vintage kind of gal. She's the owner of Vintage Knits, and she spent a year knitting her way through the first volume of Weldon's Practical Needlework, a collection of newsletters from 1880s England, featuring knitting patterns for everyday garments and accessories.
Our version of "everyday" has certainly changed since the 1800s, but Laurie took on the challenge and spent 12 months translating Victorian patterns into modern-day instructions that today's knitters can follow.
One of these projects, A Cosy Scarf (at left), is a gorgeous lace design that anyone would be proud to wear. It's a timeless classic that Laurie brought back to life, and she's generously let us offer this pattern for free.
A Cosy Scarf would be fabulous knit up in Juniper Mood Findley, SweetGeorgia Merino Silk Lace, or any of our lace-weight yarns!
Download your pattern, choose your yarn, and cast on this beautiful scarf. It's perfect for warm-weather knitting.
I'll be honest, I love TV. I watch it while I knit, and I thoroughly, unapologetically enjoy it. With the advent of Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, the original programming from HBO and Showtime, and the fabulous British detective shows, the options for knit-worthy TV are endless. Here are my top 10 recommendations for knitworthy TV.
