Newport Cardigan in Galway Chunky

Newport Cardigan in Galway Chunky, color 1

Susan‘s hand knit cardigan is a must have fall staple.

I especially love the deep ribbed sleeve cuffs- a modern twist to a classic design.

Galway Chunky is 100% wool and knits at 3 1/2 sts=1″ on size 10 needles.

Pattern is by Kim Dolce- Dolce Handknits

Boteh Scarf- another crochet design!

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

I love the undulating sections of this scarf–

Boteh Scarf using Sockotta, 1 ball

Boteh Scarf using Sockotta, 1 ball

This crochet scarf by Deedee was made on a size F hook. Only 1 ball for a 4.5″ x 72″ scarf–

Which means if you are tired of making socks, then all you need is 100G of Sockotta and a hook. I love how the design in enhanced by the self striping of the yarn.

The pattern is from Kathy Merrick and can be found here, unless you have the Interweave Crochet Spring 2007 magazine.
