Easy Garter Scarfy-Wrap Kit in Double Sunday

Easy Garter Scarfy Wrap

The Easy Garter Scarfy Wrap is the brainchild of my friend Jo, and I’m very grateful that she came up with this simple solution because it’s GREAT! This wrap drapes like a big scarf, but is also equally wearable as a little wrap. The pattern is almost totally brainless; it’s a great second or third project for a beginner knitter, but it also works equally well for more experienced knitters hanging out on the patio with a beer or a cocktail.

You can choose one of our colour combinations, put together something from your own inspiration, or combine the two and use our palette as a jumping-off point and curate your own perfect colour experience. We’re happy to help you any way we can. We stock the yarn, Sandnes Garn Double Sunday, all year round. 

This kit can be used for any kind of scarf or wrap project. 4 balls of Sandnes Garn Double Sunday is enough for a conventional 6″ wide double-wrapped scarf (about 6 feet long (of 1.8m). For a standard triangular shawl (like Boneyard) you’ll need 5 skeins or more. 

Our Wrap is in the colour palette “Bright Lights” (many thanks and much gratitude goes to Adrienne for knitting the sample, also to Gru, who allowed me to take his photo).

Sandes Garn Double Sunday is a 100% merino, DK weight yarn (a mainstay of designer PetiteKnit). Double Sunday is an affordable merino from Norway that is NOT superwash, but can go in the machine on delicate (see below), or just do a simple no-rinse hand-wash in Eucalan or Soak wash.


Sandnes Garn’s supplier has guaranteed that the wool does not come from sheep that have been subjected to mulesing. For machine washing, the manufacturer recommends that all wool garments be washed separately on a wool program, to ensure the gentlest treatment. Due to the unique absorbency of the merino wool, it is important to centrifuge hand-knitted garments well before drying  them on a flat surface, preferably on top of a towel. They do not suggest using a laundry bag when washing hand-knitted wool garments, as this creates friction that can cause the garment to felt.

The base pattern calls for 250g (or about 500m) of DK weight yarn, but it’s easy to make your scarfy-wrap bigger … you just keep knitting and it’ll keep growing (where there was an opportunity I expanded the colour palettes offering to 6 and 7 ball colour combos). There’s enough yarn in the basic 5 colour combo for a nice sized scarf (at least 7 inches wide x 6 feet long). If you want to use our colour palettes as guidance and want to make a sizeable gradient wrap I suggest getting two kits.

PROJECT On the C Train

On the C Train

On the C Train is a great hat project for any knitter. It’s knit with Sandnes Garn Double Sunday and Drops Brushed Alpaca & Silk held together, making it soft, warm, fluffy, but it also has the weight to hold up to cold weather.

We chose two colours that are close together but not exactly the same, which creates some depth of colour and vibrance in the finished piece. I’m including some colour combinations below.


  • To make an adult size large (23″ to 24″ head circumference): 1. cast on 96 sts, 2. knit an extra inch before you begin the decreases (begin decreases at 9”); 3. begin the decrease section by working in 1×1 rib pattern for 21 sts, P3tog, then continue in the same logic.
  • If you want a folded brin knit for an extra 2.5″ to 3″ from cast-on edge


  • One Size (fits medium-sized head: for a large see modifications above/in pattern)
  • 14.5” circumference (before blocking and unstretched), 10.25” height


FINISHED French Macaroon Baby Pullover

French Macaroon

French Macaroon is an adorable and simple little pullover for babies & toddlers! I love it because it’s a great basic sweater for less experienced knitters. It’s knit in garter stitch, which is a great texture for coloured, self-striping and hand-painted yarns. We’ve used Schoppel Edition 3, a super soft and spongy, machine washable merino yarn that changes colour by itself. For a light, cotton version of this project try using Berroco Vivo. If coloured yarns aren’t your thing that’s ok too, the pattern is actually designed in solid colours (see below).


The pattern comes with a list of video tutorials to help you with any skills that might be new:


  • Newborn, (3 months, 6-9 months, 12-18 months, 2-3 years, 4 years)


For a light, cotton version of this project try using Berroco Vivo: 1(1, 2, 2, 2, 2) skeins.

NEW PATTERN Great Lakes Throw

Great Lakes Throw

The Great Lakes Throw is a super simple blanket anyone can whip up QUICK! It’s made with super bulky weight  Cascade Cotton Puff and knits on 15mm/US19 needles for maximum satisfaction. The yarn is a soft, machine-washable cotton tube with a springy polyfil core (like the stuff in pillows and stuffed animals), giving it body and ease of use (it’s also allergy friendly and vegan).

The pattern is a simple, elegant, reversible rib, suitable for all knitters from beginners on up. Sizes range from a baby blanket to king-sized bed. Each ball of Cascade Cotton Puff is 200g/7.05oz, so while this technically isn’t a ‘weighted blanket’, it has some weight to it! Our sample is the Medium Throw 45″ x 60″ and is knit in colour 04.


  • Baby (Medium Throw,  Large Throw,  Twin Bed,  Double Bed,  Queen Bed,  King Bed)
  • Inches:  35 x 42 (45 x 60,  55 x 70,  65 x 90) {85 x 90,  95 x 100,  105 x 100} inches

Poule de Printemps

How adorable are these little chickens?! These hens knit up quickly with about 25m of worsted weight yarn (or two strands of a DK or Sport weight held together – about 50m) and are perfect for creating a cute and festive atmosphere. And when they hide a chocolate egg, it’s even more fun! Or use one to keep your soft-boiled eggies warm? Or just keep them around the house and invite them for a coffee clutch …

Yarn Options

I like the idea of rustic, tweedy-looking chickens using Drops Soft Tweed hold 2 strands together with 5mm/US8 needles).

  • 25m of Worsted weight yarn
  • Drops Soft Tweed (hold 2 strands together with 5mm/US8 needles): colours 06, 04, 05, 01 (1 ball will make at least 2 chickens)
  • Berroco Vintage: 1 skein should make about 8 chickens …. an entire clutch!


FREEBIE Tybee Baby Cardie


Tybee is a simple, new free baby cardie pattern knit with using Berroco Vivo, a multi-colored, self-striping 100% cotton. Vivo is perfect for baby & kid knits, as it’s super soft, light, machine washable, and ever so pretty! the 100% cotton is breathable and prefect for transitional weather.


The body is worked in one piece from the bottom-up to the underarms, then divided
for back and fronts. The sleeves are worked in the round to underarms, then joined to body so that yoke is worked in one piece.

NEW Berroco Modern Cotton

Berroco Modern Cotton

Berrooc Modern Cotton is a super soft and slightly silky yarn that’s perfect for spring and summer projects. It’s a machine-washable blend of pillowy Pima cotton and silky Modal viscose/rayon, which also makes it a perfect choice for people sensitive to animal fibres and vegans. Modal is a sustainable cellulosic fibre sourced from plants (like bamboo or Lyocell), and is a bit cooler to the touch than plain cotton (a good thing if you tend to run warm, or live in a warm climate).

Modern Cotton is a Worsted weight yarn, meaning it works up on 4.5mm/US7 knitting needles or a 5mm/H crochet hook, and you can substitute it in patterns that call for a similar weight yarn.

Modern Cotton is perfect for both crochet and knitting and is great for sweaters, tanks, tees and other tops, hats (especially chemo hats), bags, shawls & wraps, blankets & afghans, and slippers


  • 60% Pima Cotton, 40% Modal Rayon (viscose)
  • 100g/191m (209 yds)
  • Worsted weight
  • 4.5mm/US7 knitting needles
  • 5mm/H crochet hook
  • Knitting gauge: 20 sts & 26 rows = 4″ (10cm)
  • Crochet gauge: 16 sc & 19 rows = 4″ (10cm)
  • Made in Peru
  • Machine Wash in cold water, delicate cycle. Lay flat to dry.
  • Berroco Modern Cotton is also available in a DK Weight

Red Bud Isle

Red Bud Isle is a pretty summer tank with a nifty cross-over in the back. The Tank is worked from the bottom front hem upwards, increasing along edges of the back body and adding a single stripe near the hem and a set of stripes at the chest. Stitches are then cast off to separate into front and back strap sections. Front body is finished first and each strap is turned into an i-cord. Back body pieces overlap and strap stitches pick up stitches to join together back body pieces to create the fixed overlap. The final stitches are worked into i-cord for each strap.


  • Finished bust: 84 (92, 102, 112, 116, 127) cm OR 33 (36, 40, 44, 46, 50)”
  • To be worn with 5 cm / 2” positive ease
  • Model has 81.5 cm / 32” bust, stands 165 cm / 5’5” tall, and is wearing size 2.


Admit by Norah Gaughan

I admit, I love Norah Gaughan … her designs always engage me, they’re creative, sometimes architectural, but always different from everything else out there. Simple eyelets make a basic top both pretty and a teensy bit avant-garde. This top will be extra flattering on anyone with smaller shoulders. Plus, this particular pattern is FREE!


  • Finished Bust: 36(40-44-48-52)”
  • Length: 22(22-22½-22½-24)”
  • Designed with approximately 6” of ease.


Chickadee Cardigan

Misha and Puff don’t have a large repertoire of patterns, but their classic, vintage-inspired knits are simple, beautiful and fun. This easy, open little cardie is a versatile layering piece for warmer weather. Seamless, top-down construction and a hint of texture at the yoke make it a fun and satisfying knit. This classic cardigan construction is certain to be a go-to favourite. There is also a pattern for a matching Bonnet.


  • 0-6m (6-12m, 12-18m, 18-24m, 2-3y)
  • Finished bust: 18 (19 3⁄4, 20 1⁄2, 21 1⁄4, 22)” OR 46 (50, 52, 54, 56) cm


Modern Stripes Baby Blankets

This simply styled FREEBIE baby blanket combines bands of colour and texture in a modern ‘sampler’. It’s available in a knit (right) as well as a crochet (left) version.

Throw Blanket

To make a larger blanket you just need to add more stitches:

  • CROCHET: The pattern stitch is a two-stitch repeat so you can change the stitch count at the beginning by a multiple of two stitches and the pattern will still come out right.
  • KNIT: The pattern is a multiple of 4 plus 2 stitches, so ass stitches in a multiple of 4 to make your blanket bigger.
  • For a full throw size (Crochet: 62.5″, Knit: 61″) buy twice as much yarn and start with Knit: 278 sts, or Crochet: 224 chain.


  • Crochet version: Finished size 31.3/4” x 42”
  • Knit version: 30 1/2″ x 42″

Materials: KNIT

Materials: CROCHET

Cloverleaf Eyelet Blanket

There is something very beautiful and special about this vintage-inspired baby blanket … I may be sentimental because it resembles the blanket my great-grandmother made for me. I think a fabric this simple and pretty requires a fibre with a little bit of a fancier aesthetic, like Berroco Modern Cotton (or a merino like Cascade 220 Superwash Merino). The trefoil border is a simple corchet stcrochet stitch, and the pattern comes with free youtube videos.

The pattern is FREE on the designer’s blog, you can sign up for her newsletter and get a copy for free, or you can pay to download a PDF . There are also instruction on how to Resize a Knit Blanket, Throw or Washcloth.

Size: 40″ X 44″


Crocheted Moroccan Style Slippers


  • Women’s medium: approx. 10″/25cm long (toe to heel); approx. 9″/23cm around foot at instep.
  • Note: Pattern can be adapted for a longer or shorter foot. For length over approx. 11″/28cm, buy extra yarn.


Portofino Bag Set

This mesh bag set is the ultimate duo in accessories! A roomy tote for market scores, beach day essentials, or picnic must-haves in addition to a chic bottle bag to ensure you are always hydrated make the perfect pair this season. These quick projects are stylish, quick, and functional – the best combo!


  • Tote Bag: Width laying flat: 21”/53.5cm; Length: 15”/38cm; Depth: 7”/18cm; Strap length: 15”/38cm
  • Bottle Bag: Circumference: 10”/25.5cm; Length (adjustable): 7”/18cm; Strap length: 50”/127cm


VIDEO TUTORIAL ‘Oh the Places You’ll Go’ Crochet Blanket

I’ve been working on an “Oh the Places You’ll Go” Blanket and I made up a simple hack to make the increases and rounds look beautiful and seamless! In the video I show you how to make the blanket from the start … and there’s a special treat at the end!


I’m using 6 colours of Amano Yarns Chaski – the yarn is lovely but it’s fingering weight and taking FOREVER to finish. I highly suggest using a thicker yarn than I did, the pattern uses a Worsted weight yarn and I recommend Berroco Modern Cotton (for a baby blanket you’ll need 1 skein of each of 6 colours, for a throw you’ll need two skeins of each colour, for something even larger try three skeins of each colour, and you may want/need an extra skein of yellow, that’s the colour I used the most of/ran out of first):

Holiday Ornament Knits

There are a lot of decoration projects & pattern ideas out there (see the links below) but I’ve rounded up a few for you that have caught my eye …

December Bow

I can totally see myself getting caught up in making these bows …. either a bunch for myself or give them as little gifts. They’re very charming, kind of semiotically neutral, and essentially a pretty basic knit. The December Bow is worked back and forth in one piece from tip to tip in garter stitch with i-cord edges. The work is folded into a bow and sewn together at the end following the diagram with instructions that can be found at the end of the pattern. The money from the sale of December Bow will go to Save the Children in the time period between the 1st of December 2022 and 1st of December 2023.


Yarn Alternatives

You’ll need 100m of each of the two yarns above, or 100m of a DK weight yarn like the following:


Another winter creature, the snowperson is a delight for everyone’s eyes. To help your snowpeople stand tall, try putting some metal washers in their bottoms (you can get them at the hardware store) – it will improve their balance immensely.

Yarn Options

Double knitting weight yarn is perfect for this project – I love a textured yarn like Drops Soft Tweed, but I know some people like the simple grace of a pure merino like Sandnes Garn Double Sunday. If you want to keep things cheap ‘n cheerful go for Berroco Vintage Baby (it comes in 50g balls), or if you want a village of snowpeople you can also opt for Berroco Vintage DK in 100g skeins.


I prefer shorter double-pointed needles for little projects like this: either the 5″ DPNS from Clover, the 6″ DPNs from Knitters Pride, or the 8″ Flexi-Flips from Addi

Christmas Wreath, Holly & Mistletoe

There are a lot of wreath patterns out there, for all seasons and occasions, but I just kind of enjoyed this one because it’s so leafy – I love the idea of using different shades of greens and different textures of yarn to recreate a natural abundance.

Never Not Gnoming

Gnomes can be knit mini (ornament) sized with fingering weight yarn, or start upsizing with a thicker yarn and make yours a super-gnome! Whatever you choose will be marvelous …. you’ll never stock gnoming! Go down approximately 1 mm from the recommended needle size to get a tight tension.
