The cold and snow have been pretty brutal the last few weeks, so winter weather accessories are quite appropriate!
Project: Misti Chunky Ribs and Ruffles Scarf (free pattern by Nancy Kleiber)
Yarn: Marble (James C Brett)
Made for: Katy
To make this scarf warm enough, I held the yarn doubled, making it even chunkier than the original pattern's version.
Michael keeps his ears warm with a beanie I made him a few years ago. The yarn was some alpaca yarn I got at a farm in Michigan, when Brad and I spent a few days at the cabin (well, really more of a house, and quite luxurious) Mom and Dad rented on a lake. I had forgotten about this hat until I saw him wearing it on New Year's Day!
Terra is modeling a pair of Bella mittens I made for Calder. Yarn is Lion Brand wool-ease chunky.
Anna is wearing the hat and scarf I made for her mom (hat is a modified "Drops Design" pattern, scarf is Ribs and Ruffles Scarf) and Sophia is wearing a Santa hat (pattern from "Drops Design"). The yarn for these projects was Bamboo Soft, bought at Hobby Lobby.
Sophie helped make the pom pom for her hat, which she wanted to look like a peppermint!
And a pair of mitts for Saskia, made with SWTC Karoake yarn, and based on Laurie-Ann Schultz's free Fingerless Glove pattern.
