Happy Monday! Time to look back at the previous week’s recently added knitting patterns on Ravelry and pick a few favorites.
First Pick: Gotland, by Marias Garn (SEK 40, appx $6.25)
What really, really gets me is this combination of robot-trendy purl ringlets, and Victorian-ish colorwork roses. Love it, times a million. Great, now I sound like the judges on American Idol!! I could see these looking great in a number of palettes … how about pinky roses with grey-green leaves on a rusty-brown background, and creamy rings?
Second Pick: Argyle Wrist Warmers, by Emily Snyder ($2.50, available in mid-March)
Really charming two-color mitts that look like they have a lot more going on than they do. I really love the clever increasing-diamond clocks on the thumb gussets. Clever! I would of course make them in deep purple and light teal blue.
Third Pick: Butterflies on the Lattice, by Melissa Walshe (FREE! at Melissa’s Blog)
What is not to love? Simple, stylish, elegant … and in worsted, a crazy-fast knit. Is it too early to think Christmas??
