Sunshine Waffle Placemat & Coaster Knitting Pattern

This pattern is knitted in double and plain knitting giving extra depth to the placemat & coaster, and all in a nice cheery yellow to brighten any table.

I used a version of the Alternate Cable Cast On method, instructions are included in the pattern.

Beaded Favour Gift Bag Knitting Pattern

Finally the sun has come out so I can take pictures of my new design, it’s been so frustrating having to wait. I finished it not long after I wrote the post about using a ball of yarn and beads for something…well this is the something!

The idea came from the paper favour gift bags that are so popular, I just made mine with yarn and beads instead.

There is a tutorial included for threading the beads onto the yarn.

The Moth Cloth

This design was intended to be a butterfly lace washcloth, Chris said there are too many things with butterflies on, and decided it was a Moth Cloth. I couldn’t really argue, after all it is full of holes!

Whether you decide to knit it as a washcloth, or incorporate the design into a scarf, or a blanket, just remember that you’re supporting all the unloved moths out there that get overlooked in favour of butterflies!
