Why should purses get all the fun little accessories?

Using two I-cords attached to the back of each berry, you’ll be able to tie the strawberry onto each sandal with ease.

Saguaro Pillow

Featuring a single Saguaro cactus, the negative space around it echos the sparse vastness of the desert. The simple, clean construction of one large piece tapers to a point with a button hole. Since there is only one piece of colorwork in the pattern and only two colors, this is a fantastic project for beginners.

Hearts & Arrows Hat

This stranded colorwork hat features a repeating design of hearts and arrows. While it’s totally appropriate for Valentine’s Day, if that’s not your thing, make the hat monochrome using three shades of the same color ― light for the background, medium for the hearts, and dark for the arrows ― for a modern look.

Deep Sea Striped Socks

These socks are worked top down with a heel flap and gusset decreases. Instead of an evenly repeating stripe pattern, the contrast color is used with varying distance, giving thicker and thinner stripes of main color. Using garter sts in the vertical pattern panel along the front make an extra striping effect for the color changes.
