Living the Knit Life


New Pattern!

Regina has been released into the world! It is on sale 50% off until Midnight (EST) Friday January 9th, 2015 - no coupon code required.   Follow the above link or the link on my Designs page.

Regina is a very versatile piece born from my need for something adaptable and occasionally dramatic to wear with my favourite red trench coat.

Sometimes one wants to  make a dramatic entrance, no?

I love garter stripes, and an easy, mindless knit so I turned them up a notch by knitting them on the bias and using a Fibonacci-inspired stripe pattern.

The easy garter stitch pattern makes this ideal TV knitting, so I knit most of this wrap while watching TV with my daughter.  Her favourite show is "Once Upon a Time" and one of the main characters, Regina, inspired the name for this wrap; she is strong, dramatic and looks ravishing in red.

This wrap would be amazing in so many different colour combinations.  I am thinking of making myself another one in two neutrals (maybe a chocolate and a cream or a black and grey).  I can't wait to see what other knitters come up with!

This wrap is a yarn-eater though (I actually considered calling it "Yarn Eater") you will need 2 full 100gram skeins of each colour in fingering weight yarn.  Although, it would be great in a sport/DK/aran weight as well.

It's sooo versatile - here are lots of pictures to prove it!

I hope if you make it you will share photos of it - I would love to see them.
