Finished Object – In the Forest of the Night Cardi(s)

I fell in love with the “In the Forest of the Night Cardigan” by Desamour Designs and decided that it would be my birthday present to myself. And by that I mean I bought myself the pattern and yarn for my birthday and made the sweater several months later.

I made size medium and used a little over 3 skeins of Knit Picks CotLin Reflections in the color Stratus. (Unfortunately, this yarn is being discontinued.) I added a few extra rows to the top of the shoulders to make it a little longer, and give a bit longer armhole.

I had most of a skein of the yarn left, so I improvised a quick kerchief to go along with it.

My mom saw mine and requested one for herself, so as soon as she got me the yarn I got started on this version:

This one is size XL and used slightly over 9 balls of Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK in Pansy Purple.

Once again, I had most of a ball left at the end, but this time I adapted the stitch pattern of the cardigan into a hat.

Pattern Release: Fence Hopper Ankle Socks

It’s been a long time coming, but they are finally here. Meet the Fence Hopper Ankle Socks:

The pattern of raised stitches is created by a simple 1/1 cable that doesn’t even require a cable needle. Once I had the repeats down, I was even able to work on these while walking.

This particular pair is made in Valley Yarns Huntington by WEBS Yarn, but I also made the original prototypes out of Hawthorn by Knit Picks. Really any fingering weight sock yarn will work.

You can find your copy in my Ko-Fi Shop, in my Ribblr shop (where it is 50% off until June 11), or on LoveCrafts.

Finished Object – Flirt Skirt

I had some Lion Brand Mandala Yarn that I bought as an option for my Tunisian Tee test project that I decided to turn into a skirt. So I poked around on LoveCrafts and found the Flirt Skirt by Claire Jackson.

Turns out the colors matched my computer, and once I was into the body of the skirt it made a great shoulder warmer when I forgot my jacket at baseball practice.


Size: 36 inch waist, worked as written

Yarn: Lion Brand Mandala in Spirit, two balls alternated each row, 210 grams

This is a great “mindless” project once you get past the waistband and set up your markers for the increase rows. Definitely recommend this for a nice spring skirt. I have worn it several times already since I finished it.
