Hello loyal friends! I know I have been very sporodic with my posting the latter half of 2011. I’m excited to get back on a regular schedule with my blog, and I want to thank you all for sticking with me. On to the Friday Favorites. This series will feature three of my favorite knitting patterns from a variety of online sources. Some will be free (yay!), and some will require a purchase (still a yay! b/c sometimes you fall in love and it’s just worth it!).
My favorite source of knitting patterns is ravelry. In fact, ravelry is one of my all-time favorite sites! My ravelry id is “iknitandbead”…look me up! I have a monster list of favorites on there already. I look forward to adding to it this year. Now, if the stars would just align, and some extra time would materialize, I could actually complete some of my many projects. But, I digress.
|Morning Coffee Shawlette|
This pattern is $5 on ravelry. The designer is Larissa Brown. I recently added this shawlette to my favorites. It looks so soft and yummy! Click through to see all the details. When I finish one of my WIPs, I’m going to cast on sweet thing.
|Owl Cell Phone Cozy|
Isn’t this cute?? And, this one is free. A little cover for your cell. I think the owls would show up better if you added little beads for their eyes. I’ve seen that done on some other owl designs and it ups the cuteness factor a bunch.
I have made several of these quick and easy cowls. This pattern is by Lion Brand and it is also a freebie. It’s easily adaptable to lots of different yarns. I love the colors in the one above!
I would love to hear what you think of these patterns, and if you get inspired to make one let me know that, too! Happy Friday- I hope all of you have a fabulous weekend!
