Looking for something to make?

Looking for something to make? The pile of WIPs just not doing it for you? Or have you worked down your WIP pile and need to start something new? Here are some awesome patterns that can use yarn from Love & Stitches...

Stay Home & Knit Hat

Perfect design for our current predicament. The Stay Home and Knit hat is only $1 and that money will then go towards hospital workers. They need all the help they can get right now. My lovely yarn rep, Erlinda, made this hat with 220 Superwash. She even added a cute pom pom! Find the pattern on Ravelry.

Materials

US 8 16" circulars and DPNs

yarn needle

Yarn Recommendations

220 Superwash, Effects, or Waves

Anthem

Encore

Loveland Shawl

The Tunisian Crochet Queen, Toni Lipsey, has released another wonderful pattern. Throughout the month of April, Toni is hosting a CAL. Week 2 just started, but you can definitely join in and catch up easily. Or enjoy the process of learning new tunisian techniques and don't worry about any timelines. The finished shawl is 71" wide and 31" deep and made with DK weight yarn. You can find this pattern on Ravelry or on Toni's website, tlyarncrafts.com. Check out her other gorgeous patterns as well.

Want to work on some different knitting skills? This sampler cowl is the perfect project because it has lace, cables, bobbles, and even a cute little grape pattern. The pattern requires fingering weight yarn and 3 different size needles. There is a reason for this! Each section of the cowl has different stitches which end up giving you a different gauge. So in order to keep your cowl from looking bubble-y you need to switch needle sizes. Find this beautiful pattern on Ravelry.

Materials

US 5, 16" circulars

US 4, 16" circulars

US 3, 16" circulars

Yarn Recommendations

220 Fingering (2 skeins)

Happy Feet (1 skein)

Shirsty Cat BFL (1skein)

Next week we will share more of our favorite patterns. We will also be asking for pattern testers. Mom and I have been working on a crochet cardigan pattern and we need your help to finalize it.

Stay safe and healthy my fellow yarnies!
