Easy Must-Make Knits
|Alameda Cowl by Jocelyn J. Tunney|
Sometimes you need something easy to knit. But easy doesn't mean plain. It doesn't mean unattractive. It doesn't mean it's boring.
To me, easy means that I can let my mind wander as I knit, maybe watch some TV or talk to friends or read. Easy knitting is comfort knitting. An easy project can be a nice gift or something quick for yourself.
Our new magazine, Make It Knits, is a wonderful collection of easy fall and winter projects that pack a visual punch. Editor Lisa Shroyer wanted to put together a collection for newer knitters and for knitters who seek out projects for the yarns they buy most—worsted- to bulky-weight yarns that are easy to substitute.
If you're like me, you have a stash of odds and ends, single and double skeins of yarn, and that luxurious skein that's been waiting for the perfect project.
I also have bags of yarn I bought on sale—something will come along that's just perfect for this yarn, I thought at the time!
Make It Knits is full of patterns that are perfect for this type of stash-busting. You'll find patterns that fit a lot of what you have in your stash. Here are some of my favorites:
|Victor Shawl by Ruth Garcia-Alcantud||Amplified Cowl by Kate Gagnon Osborn|
|Wavy Lace Capelet by Cecily Glowik MacDonald||Veronica Slouch by Brenda K. B. Anderson|
