Ich habe Euch ja neulich von meinen Wintertime Kissenhüllen erzählt, aber ich habe Euch glatt verschwiegen, dass noch ein zweiten Muster von mir im selben Heft veröffentlicht wrude. Oneway Slippers.
Wenn es Euch so geht wie mir, dann heißt Winter auch gerne mal kalte Füße und was wärmt Füße besser als ein kuscheliges Paar gestrickte Hausschuhe?
Die Hausschuhe werden in Runden gestrickt, vom Bündchen zur Spitze. Die Ferse ist mit verkürzten Reihen mit Doppelmaschen gearbeitet; im Magazin gibt es ein bebildertes Tutorial für diese Technik.
Der Hingucker an den Hausschuhen die hauptsächlich glatt rechts gestrickt sind, ist ein Band mit einem Muster aus abgehobenen Maschen, das sich vom Bündchen bis zur Spitze zieht. Gestrickt in einem dicken Garn, Stylecraft Special Aran with Wool, sind die kuscheligen Hausschuhe in kürzester Zeit fertig gestellt.
Das Strickmuster findet sich im Magazin, Knit Now Issue 109, das jetzt in Geschäften überall in Großbritannien erhältlich ist und ebenso als digitale Version von moremags.com, hier.
So I've told you the other day about my Wintertime Cusions, but I haven't yet told you that there is a second pattern of mine in the same issue of Knit Now: Oneway Slippers.
If you are any like me, winter is the time of could feet and what better way is there to keep your feet warm than with a pair of knitted slippers?
The slippers are worked in the round from the cuff down. The heel is worked using German short-rows with double stitches. There comes a tutorial with the pattern to explain the technique.
The eye-catching feauter is a pnael in slipped stitches running from the cuff to the toe. Knitted in a heavyweight yarn, Stylecraft Special Aran with Wool, these comfy slippers are finished in a couple of hours.
The Oneway Slippers pattern is inculded in Knit Now Issue 109, now available from stores across the UK and also online from moremags,com, here.
Truth be told, especially in winter when it’s cold and grey I enjoy staying at home, snuggled up on the sofa with my knitting. And what makes a home more welcoming and cosy than handmade decorations? So I'm happy to tell you that today the latest issue of Knit Now magazine hits the news stands and it includes one of my patterns: Wintertime Cushions.
This matching pair of cushion covers are worked using stranded knitting. They are both worked using the same colours, but feature different patterns that combine the clean look of geometric
shapes with traditional Scandinavian stitch patterns. The cushion covers are started with a provisional cast-on and are then worked in the round from the top to the bottom. They were knitted in
Colour Lab DK in colourways Harbour Blue and Natural Cream.
The pattern for the Wintertime cusions is included in Knit Now Magazine Issue 109, now available in shops across the UK and also online from moremags.com, here.
There really is no denying it: what I like to knit best are socks! But then, who wouldn't wish for a new pair of socks, now that the days are getting colder? So here's what I have for you today: Irregular.
Irregular socks are knitted from the cuff down, entirely in narrow knit and purl stripes which head towards each other, stay combined for a short while and then separate from each other again. The pattern is absolute regular - but nevertheless it seems to form irregular lines and segments.
For a good fit the socks are worked with heel flap and gusset; the heel flap is worked in pattern too.
The pattern includes two sizes: Women’s M and L to fit leg circumference 18.75 (22.5) cm [7.5 (8.75)”]. Leg length and foot length are adjustable.
Now, who is in sock knitting mode this 'Soctober'? The pattern files is available for download from my Ravelry pattern store, here: Irregular.
I've been working on some brand new patterns which can't be shared yet - but I've also got something new in my Ravelry pattern store previously published by Interweave: Zinger Socks.
These two-coloured socks are worked in aa slip stitch pattern, always with one colour at a time. The effect of the disconnected stripes is simply created by slipping stitches at given intervals. The pattern is easy to work and memorize, which makes this
project a great choice for newbie sock knitters.
The pattern includes three sizes: Women’s S, M and L to fit leg circumference 17.5 (20, 22.5) cm [7 (7.75, 8.75)”]. Leg length to the heel results in 18.75 cm (7.5”)
knit as given in the pattern. Leg length and foot length are adjustable. The chosen colours change the look significantly and make this pattern a unisex pattern for all ages.
Zinger Socks is now available for download from my Ravelry pattern store, here.
And here we go again: one of the patterns I really loved when designing it for Love of Knitting quite a while back, finally got a thorough revision and it is now available from my Ravelry pattern store: Bargello Socks.
Worked in stranded knitting, zigzags in varying widths create an all-over pattern. Place the stripes at random, or use a wildly coloured self-striping yarn as the background colour, to make your pair of socks unique.
The socks are worked cuff down with heel flap and gusset. The gusset decreases are done at the sole towards the middle of the sole.
The pattern includes three sizes: Women’s S, M and L to fit leg circumference 17.5 (20, 22.5) cm 7 (7.75, 8.75)”. Leg length to the heel results in 17.5 cm 7” when knit as given in the pattern, adjustable. Foot length is adjustable.

Did I tell you that my dear friend Evey from Canada visited in September? Well, after we had agreed on which weekend she had time to spend with us, I came to realize that she would be here for her birthday. So I needed the perfect gift, right? And what else would I give to a fellow knitter than a handmade gift... so Evey got this:
A shawl in fingering weight yarn her favourite colours, knitted in mosaic knitting technique. And I think you can tell how much she loved it. :) I made the pattern up while knitting, so at the moment it really is one of a kind - but should there be a pattern one day, Evey already named it: Celebrate!
Makes me happy my gift made her happy! :)
Another one of my patterns came to light today: The Central Wrap is included in the brandnew Knitscene magazine, Winter 2019.
The wrap is worked back and forth in rows on the bias in an allover garter-stitch diamond pattern. Thanks to the construction, from one corner at a short side diagonally to one corner at the opposite short size, the size can be adjusted to your preferred size easily. The natural bias of the wrap makes it a parallelogram, but it can be blocked to a rectangle easily. It’s the perfect piece to wrap up in when you need an extra layer.
