New Favorites: Simple pleasures

New Favorites: Simple pleasures (knitting patterns)

Maybe it’s because I’m wrapping up my annual spot-of-colorwork project, I don’t know, but for whatever reason, I’m finding myself soooo drawn to the idea of knitting something really simple and straightforward but also beautiful and useful. Such as …

TOP: Column by Hiromi Nagasawa is a bulky or superbulky pullover with an unusual construction method that also gives a simple sweater a different look

BOTTOM LEFT: Chunky Slipper Socks by Churchmouse is a bulky version of their fingering-weight Turkish Bed Socks, one of the first patterns I ever bought (but still haven’t knitted!)

BOTTOM RIGHT: Classic Ribbed Hat by Purl Soho is exactly that (free pattern)

Happy weekend, everyone! If you happen to be at Quiltcon today, here in Nashville, hey me too! Please say hello.

  1. Hi Karen, you are really missing out on the Turkish Bed Socks. I knit several pair for my daughter who was undergoing chemo. She loves them. Check them out on my Ravelry project page. I enjoy and look forward to your newsletters. (and see how many Log Cabin mitts I have knit!)
    I am: saradenbo on Rav

  2. oh my gosh – i LOVE that Nagasawa sweater! (AND the socks–they could go together even!) that sweater is exactly what i want. being an absolute beginner knitter, maybe i could even attempt this?

    • Go for it! If it feels like it’s over your head, you can always set it aside and come back to it later.
