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.

Granny’s Garden Tee: Camellia Version

This is a fresh take on the Granny’s Garden Tee from April 2016 issue of I Like Knitting. By using only two colors, omitting the picot edge and presenting the flower-head’s in a row, Granny’s Garden is now available with two styling options. And what’s more, it’s two patterns in one!

Swarming Boot Cuffs

This boot cuff takes the image of a honeybee swarm and materializes it into a wearable work of art! This stitch, appropriately named “Bee Stitch” is a stretchy, squishy, dense fabric that holds its shape. The fabric looks like thousands of tiny bees waiting to take flight!

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.

There’s something magical about the flickering of a candle in the dark evening hours. Capture this magic with these knit lantern holders that are somewhere between boho and chic. You can make a set in the weekend and they make a fantastic and unique hostess or birthday gift. Each lantern is made with an 8 oz. mason jar, yarn and an battery-powered tealight candle.

Jack Fair Isle Scarf

Jack is a great introduction to Fair Isle knitting. The majority of the patterns are simple three- or four-stitch repeats divided by solid-colored stripes. It begins with ribbed ends that are worked back and forth then overlapped, creating a faux-buttoned closure. The remainder is worked circular in two halves. They are joined at the center with Kitchener stitch, creating a mirror image of the pattern. Because the scarf is worked circular, ends can be left inside rather than working them in. Jack is for the man in your life that appreciates knitting!

Plaid Prep Clutch

This little plaid clutch is super preppy but really fun! The top closes with a big leather button, which really adds some style. This type of plaid knitting is easy since the vertical stripes are done afterwards with a crochet hook. The perfect gift for the preppy girl on your list. This clutch matches the Plaid Prep Tote featured in the October 2018 issue.
