Just another cat obsessed knitter

It’s a cowl, it’s a scarf, it’s a wrap!  However you wear it, this chunky knit will keep you warm and cosy.  A quick knit in a chunky/bulky weight yarn using moss/seed stitch and two contrasting colours.

Having ripped back and restarted this cowl a couple of times, I am now happy with the result.  I found that by using larger needles than recommended by the yarn company, the moss/seed stitch pattern was a looser knit and did not make the fabric too rigid.  I used two 100g balls of Rowan purelife British Sheep Breeds Chunky Undyed 100% wool, one in a shade of grey and one cream.

Enjoy the pattern: Chunky Cowl

Frosty Mornings

Just wanted to share some of my early morning photos from the last week or so.  They feature The Hoot Family and The Chicks looking cute in the frost and, on one occasion, the snow!

Been taking some up to date photos of The Chicks amongst flowers, which I can’t resist buying or picking.  Seem to be spending too much time behind the camera and not enough knitting at the moment!

The rain stopped for a while, which provided a photo opportunity and some fun for one of the little chicks!

Birdie Baubles

I’ve enjoyed having these little chaps out to decorate the Christmas Tree, they’ve appeared in many of my photos over the festive period!  All the birdies are knit from my Seasonal Birdie Baubles pattern, which can be found in my online shops.

The Owlets – Free Pattern

image

I designed Oliver and Olivia a few years ago and am now offering the knitting pattern to make these cute, fluffy owlets free here:

Oliver and Olivia

I used a double knit weight yarn; however you could use a chunky yarn for larger owlets or a finer, 4ply yarn to make smaller ones.  The owlets make lovely decorations and a smaller size would look sweet on your Christmas tree!
