Poppy Day

November 11 – Remembrance Day
It’s poppy time!
Why not knit or crochet a hand made poppy or two to remember this day and those who fought so that we can be safe. Please remember, if you sell any of these handmade poppies, please donate the funds to your local Legion. This is their main source of funding.

Here are some links to free Knit and Crochet Poppy patterns:

Simple scarf

This is a super simple scarf pattern – designed for the beginner knitter – or those more experienced who like to knit scarves with bulky yarns. I have designed this knitting pattern to work with my hand spun yarns – but it will work fine with any chunky weight yarn.
This scarf knitting pattern uses about 100 grams of yarn.

hand spun knit scarf

I am using a moss stitch for the pattern. I like to use moss stitch for hand spun yarns because it enhances the texture of the yarn.

Moss Stitch
Moss stitch alternates between knit and purl on each row. You knit the purls and purl the knits. It is best to cast on with an odd number of stitches.

Knitting Pattern: Raglan Sweater: raglan

This is a hand knit sweater pattern that I designed for use with my handspun Shetland wool. I designed the pattern using knitting software by Knitware.ca
This knitting pattern makes a raglan sleeve jumper and is knit on circular needles from the bottom up. It is knit in a simple stocking stitch, but you can add your own special touches to it with a knitted motif such as the Sarah Lund jumper designs, or a cable knit.

Because handspun yarns can vary quite a bit in weight, I have given approximate estimates of the amount of yarn required.

Note: Read ALL these instructions thoroughly BEFORE starting to knit. There may be sections where there are two shapings to work at the same time (such as necklines or waist shaping).

BODY: (HEM TO ARMHOLE)
1. Cast on 116 sts [128,138,150] on size 10 circular needle. Join the circle, taking care not to twist the stitches. Mark the side ‘seams’ at the beginning and at the halfway point(58 sts)[64,69,75]. Work in K1P1 ribbing for 2.5 ins. Inc 4 [4,4 ,6] sts evenly across the round to 120 sts [132,142,156]total.
2. Change to size 8 circular needle and Stocking Stitch. Work even until piece measures 16.2 [16.9,16.9,17.2]ins (69 rounds)[72,72,73], excluding hem.

raglan back

raglan front

SLEEVES: (HEM TO ARMHOLE)
1. Cast on 22 sts [24,25,26] on size 10 dp needles. Join the circle, taking care not to twist the stitches. Mark the ‘seam’ at the beginning of the round. Work in K1P1 ribbing for 2.0 ins.[2.00,2.3,2.3] Inc 17 sts [19,21,23] evenly across the round to 39 sts [43,46,49] total.
2. Change to size 8 dp needles and Stocking Stitch.
3. Work even until sleeve measures 14.5 ins [14.7,14.7,14.7] (62 rounds)[63,63,63], excluding hem.
4. Place these sts on a holder and work the second sleeve.

raglan sleeve

JOINING BODY AND SLEEVES:
1. Mark the front so you know which part of the body it is.
2. Underarm sts (four sets). Transfer 6[6,6 ,8] sts to a holder, centred at each of the four ‘seam’ markers on the body and the sleeves. These sts will be left unworked until the top shaping is complete, then sewn or grafted together to join the body and sleeve at the armhole.
3. Hold (and temporarily pin) the sleeves beside the body (all right side out), with the underarm sts and ‘seams’ matching. With the right side facing, and starting where the back meets the left sleeve, pick up and knit sts as follows: 33 [37,40,41] from the left sleeve, 54[60,65,70] from the front, 33 [37,40,41]from the right sleeve and 54[60,65,70] from the back. Total 174 sts [194,210,222]. At the same time, place four markers for the raglan shaping, one at each boundary between body and sleeve. Reminder: do NOT work the underarm sts.

RAGLAN YOKE:

SIZE 32
1. Work raglan shaping as follows: dec 1 st at front/back sides of each raglan marker on every 2nd round 17 times. At the same time, dec 1 st at sleeve sides of each raglan marker on every 3rd round 4 times, then every 2nd round 11 times. Work this raglan shaping while incorporating the front neckline shaping in the following steps.

SIZE 36
1. Work raglan shaping as follows: dec 1 st at front/back sides of each raglan marker on every 2nd round 16 times, then every round 4 times. At the same time, dec 1 st at sleeve sides of each raglan marker on every 3rd round once, then every 2nd round 16 times. Work this raglan shaping while incorporating the front neckline shaping in the following steps.

SIZE40
1. Work raglan shaping as follows: dec 1 st at front/back sides of each raglan marker on every 2nd round 18 times, then every round 3 times. At the same time, dec 1 st at sleeve sides of each raglan marker on every 2nd round 19 times. Work this raglan shaping while incorporating the front neckline shaping in the following steps.

SIZE44
1. Work raglan shaping as follows: dec 1 st at front/back sides of each raglan marker on every 2nd round 18 times, then every round 5 times. At the same time, dec 1 st at sleeve sides of each raglan marker on every 3rd round twice, then every 2nd round 17 times. Work this raglan shaping while incorporating the front neckline shaping in the following steps

2. Front Neckline. When yoke measures 5.0 ins [5.1,5.4,5.7] (at round 21)[21,23,25], break yarn at end of round and start neckline shaping as follows.
3. Divide for neck. Mark center 10 sts [10,11,12] of the front section for the bottom of neckline (13 sts [16,17,18] each side on the front). Slip sts between end of round and right neckline marker onto the right hand needle. With right side facing, rejoin yarn at left neckline marker, place sts between neckline markers on a holder, and work all the way around to the other neckline marker. From this point on, work back and forth in rows, instead of in rounds.
4. Shape neck. Dec 1 st at neck edge every row 3 [3,3,4]times.
5. Work even at neck edges, continuing raglan shaping. Continue work to total 36 rows [37,40,42] for yoke (28 sts remaining)[28,29,32].

ROUND (CREW) FRONT NECK SINGLE BAND COLLAR:
1. Transfer yoke sts to size 10 circular needle, then pick up and work 11 sts [12,14,15] from left front neck edge, 10 sts [10,11,12] from front neck holder, 11 sts [12,14,15] from right front neck edge. Total 60 sts.[62,68,74]
2. Work 1.0 ins (5 rows) in K1P1 ribbing.
3. Cast off loosely.

FINISHING:
1. Graft or sew the sleeve and body sts together at the underarms.
2. Darn/weave/sew in all loose ends.

Knitting – Shetland squares 2

As I travel on the train to work in London every day, the journey gets quite long and tedious. A 2 hour commute is a long time. Knitting helps to make this daily grind a bit easier. I have found that knitting small items is quite easy to do on a train and doesn’t disturb other passengers too much. I do get some funny looks sometimes as I pull my handspun yarn and knitting needles out of my bag.
I use circular needles so that I don’t stab whoever is sitting beside me with the end of the needle. I invested in a set of wooden circular needles from Knit Pro – they are fabulous to knit with.
UK: Knit Pro Symfonie
Knit Pro Symfonie Wood Circular Needle Interchangeable Deluxe Set

US: Knitters Pride Cubics Symfonie
Knitter’s Pride Cubics Symfonie Rose Deluxe Interchangeable Circular Needle Set

This is the knitted square that I designed yesterday as I travelled into work.

Rib Twist knitting swatch

I knitted this with the gray Shetland yarn that I handspun earlier this week.
Shetland Squares No. 1

I cast on 26 stitches and knit this square on quite large knitting needles – 8mm – because I want the finished piece to be very light and airy. I will be putting all the knitted blocks together into an afghan. You can adapt this pattern to just about any yarns that you have on hand. Just continue knitting until the piece is square, or reasonably so.
This pattern is knit as a simple 4 stitch rib, with a bit of a cable twist added to it.

Shetland Squares

I recently purchased some Shetland wool roving samples from World of Wool. The sample pack was 100 grams each of 4 natural shades of Shetland wool – White, Grey, Moorit and Dark Brown.
Sample Pack of Shetland Roving
Shetland roving

I thought that I would spin these yarns up and knit an afghan consisting of different knitting patterns.
Here is the first one:

Single Ply Shetland Handspun Yarn
Single ply spun at 22 wpi

2 Ply Shetland Handspun Yarn
2 ply spun at 8 wpi
approx. 600 ypp

Knit Sample – Cable Wobble

Knitting Chart – Cable Wobble Pattern

I cast on 26 stitches and knitted this in a modified cable pattern over 4 stitches using 8mm knitting needles.
I have knit this on fairly large needles because I want the finished afghan to be quite light and airy.
If you are using handspun yarn of a different weight, follow the pattern along until you have formed a square.
This square uses approx. 20 grams of handspun yarn.

The knitting chart was designed on my new knitting design software – Knitting Chart Editor from Cathy Scott’s Stitch Mastery
I am very pleased with this software – I have searched for some time for knitting chart design software that is intuitive, easy to use and has the flexibility to also add your own stitches.
The software produces the chart and also the text form for knitting patterns – for those of us who find this easier to follow.
Also, Cathy was very helpful when I had a few hiccups with installing the software.

Knitted Skirt Knitting Pattern

A vintage knitting pattern from Stitchcraft for a skirt knit using Patons Moorland Knitting Yarn and an embroidered waist.
Proving that a knitted skirt is not dowdy! Long, straight lines, wide waist-band decorated with embroidery, and the result is as smart as any tailor-made. Knitted sideways in slightly shaped flares, the skirt hangs perfectly and will not drop or lose its shape.
