Celebrate autumn, a bountiful harvest, and the holiday season with this elegant lace runner. The runner features a motif that resembles sheaves of wheat and was created using the “Diagonal Fern Lace” stitch pattern in A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G. Walker. Make the runner extra long to grace a beautiful holiday table, or make the runner as shown to accent a sideboard or buffet table. The pattern includes easy-to-follow written instructions.
A one-skein gem perfect for autumn! Knit this elegant cowl that pairs warmth with lightness in just a few hours. This cowl was knit with Madelinetosh Eyre, a deliriously soft blend of merino, alpaca, and silk, but 120 yards of any worsted weight yarn will work nicely.
Resembling abundant summer fields of corn, this scarf is a quick and elegant project to make use of that one special skein in your stash! The combination of merino and silk in the yarn gives the scarf a beautiful drape and the right amount of warmth for a cool spring or autumn evening. The central motif was inspired by the “Flame Chevron” pattern in Barbara G. Walker’s A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns.
Inspired by the boats that dot the coastline of Rhode Island, this towel set makes a thoughtful gift for a hostess, a housewarming, a new bride or even a bride-to-be. One towel features a motif of signal flags, used by ships to spell out messages and to celebrate special occasions. The other towel features a lace motif that resembles the sailboats traversing Narragansett Bay in the summer and was inspired by the “Arrowheads” stitch pattern in Sterling’s Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns. The sailboat towel pattern includes both written and charted instructions. Best of all, the combination of cotton and acrylic in the suggested yarn gives the towels softness and drape while making them durable and machine washable and dryable!
