Woooo! Finally, a new knitting pattern after what feels like a whole summer of crochet pattern releases, from the Siren’s Sea Shawl, to Pokeballs and Rainbow Grannies. Pssst! Did I mention that this is a free pattern? Because it is.
There’s a new monthly blog feature over at Laughing Hens: it’s called The One Ball Challenge, and it’s awesome. Basically a blogger or designer is challenged to make something awesome with just one ball of yarn, and offer the pattern for free. AWESOME, right? RIGHT.
I was lucky enough to get a ball of Rowan Cashmere to play with. It’s an awesome new yarn from Rowan, and it’s seriously the softest thing I’ve ever had the pleasure of squishing. It’s seriously soft.
Okay, let’s get down to brass tacks, shall we?
This pattern is awesome for beginners: it only uses knit and purl stitches, and it’s knitted flat on single pointed needles. You seam up the sides when you’re done, leaving a space for the thumb.
Interested? You can add it to your Ravelry queue.
