This week Kelley got a head start on her Thanksgiving table decorations with the free pattern Cute Little Pumpkin Patch by Nimble Needles.This knit pumpkin pattern uses the increases Knit Left Loop (KLL) and Knit Right Loop (KRL) – both of which are practically invisible and leave no holes. In this week's Technique Tuesday, Kelley demonstrated how to make these increases and compared them to the increases she normally uses.
Kelley's great-niece, Mischa, loves and cherishes the hand knits she receives. Kelley designed these mittens and leg warmers just for Mischa, but they're sized for any young child. Kelley wanted a set that is machine washable and sturdy for our rambunctious youngsters as they enjoy the snow this winter. Both knitting patterns are free for you to enjoy!
Second-Sock-Syndrome is a real problem! You finish one sock, and everything gets set aside before you ever get to the second one. By doing two-at-a-time socks, mittens, leg warmers, etc – you avoid that problem all together! This week Kelley shared essential advice for knitting two-at-a-time items.
