Pattern Release – Secret in my Pocket

Secret - 1 (2)

Secret in my Pocket is a comfortable, drop-shoulder jumper. It is worked seamlessly from the top in one piece, beginning with the neck edge. The shoulder slopes are shaped with the use of the contiguous sleeve method. The front and back are worked separately down to the underarm. The body is formed by joining the front and back at the underarm. Finally, the sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole edge and shaped using decreases.

The project shown is worked in a size M2 and is worn on a model with a 37”, 94 cm bust, making for approximately 3.5“ of ease.

I hope you enjoy this pattern and look for my other designs on Ravelry. You may contact me on Ravelry should you have any questions or comments. My user name is Adnama.

Support Local Yarn Guy (SLY Guy)

 

Support Local Yarn Guy or Sly Guy for short is a cowl and fingerless mittens pattern worked in MJ yarns. The cowl features a color work in a variety of textures including stockinette stitch, garter stitch, Andalusian stitch and lace.

The cowl is worked in rounds to length and then folded, so that the top and bottom edges are closed together using the three needle bind off. This results in a piece that hides the wrong side of the fabric, without having to double knit. The fingerless mittens are worked from the cuff in rounds.

Upslope is a native Colorado shawl design! Both the yarn (Hue Loco) and the name are from Colorado. Upslope is the name of a locally brewed beer that also went very well with the shape and lines on this design.

Upslope is a slightly asymmetrical shawl that is cast on with just one stitch. It is worked flat, back and forth, mostly in garter stitch, making it a good shawl pattern for beginner knitters.

The color elements are worked in using a very simple form of short row. If you’ve never heard of short rows, you should give this shawl a try, to give yourself a taste. If you are afraid of short rows, you won’t even know you are working them. The short rows in this shawl are worked using simple knitting increases (kfb) and decreases (k2tog) – ANYONE can do them!

These instructions are easy to follow and only include basic knitting skills. There is also no need to worry about weaving in multiple ends, both colors of yarn are carried, almost invisibly along the edge of the shawl, so that you will only end up with a few ends to weave in!

Simplicity in Lace

Simplicity - 1 (8)

Simplicity in Lace is an easy yet, elegant top-down raglan pullover that only requires basic knitting skills. If you are a beginner knitter, you shouldn’t shy away from attempting this project. Only two basic lace knitting stitches are required: purl two together (p2tog) and yarn over (yo).

This pullover is cast on at the neck edge and worked in rounds down to the bust. At this point, the sleeves are separated from the body, and worked separately. The knitting continues through the body with optional waist shaping down to the hem. Finally, the sleeves are knitted in rounds from the top down.

Gauge: 20 stitches x 32 rows = 4” (10 cm) in stockinette stitch on size US 5 (3.75 mm) needles; measured on a washed and blocked flat swatch. You are advised to ensure that both your stitch and row gauges are accurate.

Difficulty: Easy (raglan seam increases; knitting in the round; picking up stitches from a finished edge).

Needles: Size US 5 (3.75 mm) for body (or size needed to
get gauge), Size US 3 (3.25 mm) for ribbing

Yarn: Yardage depends on the yarn you decide to use.
