For the last few weeks I’ve been getting the new season books together. And this season I’ve produced some free patterns too!
There are 3 of them and they are on the US distributors of Mirasol website as free downloads. This is the first time I’ve produced free downloadable patterns. I hope you like them and enjoy making the accessories.
The first one is made from Mirasol Nuna, a gorgeeeeeeooooooouuuuuusssss 40% Merino Wool, 40% Silk and 20% bamboo yarn. This fibre combination makes the shades shine. I am a little bit addicted to Nuna because of the way it holds stitches, and is so lovely to knit with.
I’ve chosen 3 shades to knit this scarf, but it can be knitted with one shade, or as many shades as you want. It’ll look fabulous with a different shade for each stripe. Anyway, it’s a simple and easy to knit pattern that you can use to make your own. As I hope you will do with all my patterns.
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a lovely festive holiday and are having a good start to 2012.
I can’t believe how quickly 2011 has whizzed by, I feel like it was just yesterday when it was the start of 2011!
I’m busy getting my next books to the printers and already excited about new designs for the next books. So during the day I’m going through patterns and double checking (really it is about 20 times checking!) the mathematics while in the evenings I am playing with new yarns and thinking of new designs for existing yarns…..so many ideas I need to try and organise my mind to calmly start on one and not one hundred!
I’ve also joined the world of Twitter, I’m still trying to understand it but it’s all learning fun! My twitter address is @knitjane
Hope everyone has a super January!
