FREEBIE Pixel Stitch Socks

pixel-stitch-socks-600-18_medium2

Pixel Stitch Socks

Worked from the toe up, these pretty socks would make an excellent spring project for the intermediate knitter. They’d look great with the subtle variations of the semi-solid, hand-dyed colour of Malabrigo Alegria. If you aren’t feeling that fancy, go for Cascade Heritage. You won’t go wrong with either, both yarns are made with super-soft merino wool that is blended with nylon to help them wear well.

Yarn Options

Malabrigo Alegria: 1 skein in each of 2 colours

Cascade Heritage: 1 skein in each of 2 colours

Materials

  • FREE Pattern
  • 2.75mm/US2 double pointed needles (or size to obtain gauge)
  • scrap yarn
  • small crochet hook (for cast on)

FREEBIE Metric Baby Blanket

 

 

Metric

I love the simplicity of this baby blanket. It looks great, and I think it’s perfect for novices and experienced knitters alike. It would look amazing in a hand-painted yarn like Malabrigo Rios (100% superwash merino wool), or equally elegant with Cascade 220 Superwash (100% machine washable Peruvian wool), Berroco Vintage (superwash wool-synthetic blend), or a washable cotton-synthetic blend like Cascade Avalon.  Heathered colours are always well received.

Yarn Options

Malabrigo Rios: 5 to 6 skeins

Cascade 220 Superwash: 5 skeins (use 4.5mm/US7 needles)

Concello

I think Concello is a really simple, pretty spring/summer sweater that you can wear with just about anything, anywhere.

The sleeves and hem are edged with an easy picot crocheted border.
