Get the look of a layered piece with just one accessory! A classic textured stripe cowl accompanied by a layer of frothy lace, the Rory Cowl, like its namesake, wouldn’t look out of place on an Ivy League campus.
The Duality Gloves feature half-fingers (not as hard as you think they are!) with a delicate lace overlay from wrist to knuckles–all in luscious cashmere. You get the best of both worlds here with warm hands and lovely lace.
Little Infinities Cowl
Soft and warm with a little bit of high contrast colorplay to keep it interesting, the Little Infinities Cowl is perfect for indulging in that beautiful cashmere you’ve been eyeing. And because some infinities are bigger than other infinities, it comes in two sizes—Hazel (small) and Gus (large).
A sophisticated twist on the classic aviator, just like Amelia Earhart herself. Sleek but warm, the Earhart Cap features a stitch that looks like a cable but is perfectly flat.
Negative Space Mitts
With color play like the Negative Space Mitts, it’s fascinating how the use of high contrast colors can shift the negative space of the pattern depending on which you’re looking at.
Plus, in ultra soft cashmere, you’ll never want to stop touching your own hands.
Perfectly Pooled Hat
There are few things more satisfying than getting a beautiful skein of variegated yarn and then having it work up into exactly the pattern you hoped it would. The Perfectly Pooled Hat is written for Three Irish Girls’ StevenBe exclusive color, Care Bear Stare (available here and the Exploding TARDIS colorway available here). I can’t guarantee its effect on other variegated yarns but don’t be afraid to find out! Care Bear Stare is dyed half rainbow and half clouds/sky so anything dyed similarly may give you a similar hat.
This is also just an awesome basic worsted hat pattern–it works up really quickly. Plus, it’s free!
Double knit in gorgeous hand-dyed yarn (which makes it awesomely reversible), Cap’s Cap is a hat that you can depend on to keep you warm and make you look cool.
Inspired by the new Nerd Alert collection colors by Three Irish Girls for StevenBe, you can get both this hat and Cap’s Mitts out of one skein of each of the colors.
You can wear Cap’s Mitts while battling to save the world or imagining that you’re holding Chris Evans’ hand.
Inspired by the new Nerd Alert collection colors by Three Irish Girls for StevenBe, these mitts can be made using the leftovers from Cap’s Cap.
Winter Warm Wrap
The wonderful gradations in the colors of Knit Collage Cast Away make for a beautiful and remarkably warm wrap. The Winter Warm Wrap is a super quick, enjoyable, and satisfying knit.
If you’ve waited until the last minute, don’t panic! The Weekend Stocking is the perfect quick holiday gift knit and an awesome way to use that funky handspun you’ve had your eye on. Plus, it’s big enough to double as gift wrap for someone who holds an extra special place in your heart.
Deep Breath Mitts
Inspired by the fingerless gloves worn by the Twelfth Doctor in his very first episode, the Deep Breath Mitts feature mirrored cables and a very squishy garter thumb in cushy Three Irish Girls Springvale Worsted.
Slinky and decadent in hand dyed silk, Ariel features an open stitch and a loose gauge allowing for maximum drape from this gorgeous yarn.
A cooperative effort between DrawFour Designs and Westknits, Zoolandia was the 2014 Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop pattern for Yarn Garage in Rosemount. This shawl is perfect for variegated yarns!
The giant rick rack ruffles on the Alice shawlette remind me of Alice in Wonderland and kitchy 1950’s dresses simultaneously. This whimsical throwback is fun to wear for adults and children (my niece keeps telling me, “I could wear this!”).
Aim to Misbehave Mitts
When you’re smuggling food (and cows, and fugitives), it is important to accessorize properly. The far reaches of space can get mighty cold and you need your hands to stay warm if you’re going to have to draw fast. The Aim to Misbehave Mitts will keep your paws toasty and ready for a little misbehavin’.
Inspired by Sherlock Holmes’ ideal woman, Irene Adler drapes elegantly with gently gathered sections studded with glittering beads. She’s soft but with a surprising crispness. Worn long or doubled, this cowl is both functional and fashionable.
Can’t Stop the Signal
A triangular shawl using two colors inspired by Joss Whedon’s “Firefly” available exclusively at StevenBe, Can’t Stop the Signal is a fun knit and a subtle way to show off your fandom. You can also order a kit for this project here!
Ellen & Missy
Two hats, perfect for beginners who want to expand their horizons: Ellen & Missy use the same basic construction but with two different brim designs–one squishy garter stitch and the other a basic cable!
Lake Calhoun Wrap
An airy cashmere/linen wrap featuring ruched panels and horizontally knit cabled bands, the Lake Calhoun Wrap is a beautiful accessory.
First Avenue Slouch
The First Avenue Slouch is a hip and comfortable cashmere hat, warm and soft for cold nights waiting in line for your favorite band to start playing.
Seventh Street Entry Mitts
These soft fingerless mitts feature a fun button band and two colors of luscious cashmere. The Seventh Street Entry Mitts fit perfectly over a pair of black leather gloves.
Simple but sophisticated, the Nicollet Hat is a warm little lid for cool metropolitan nights.
A squishy garter triangle shawlette with a scalloped edge, Manhattan Melodies is the perfect little accent for any outfit.
Silk Scarf Cowl
Thick and thin cotton in a textured stitch alternates with rounds of soft alpaca eyelets that are perfect for weaving through with intensely colored silk ribbons, the Silk Scarf Cowl is long enough to drape or double.
A double-knit delight, the Jeremy Cowl is knit in a reversible argyle pattern using luscious Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted.
This earflap hat boasts the University of Minnesota “M” logo on the front and crossed hockey sticks with pucks around. The Ski-U-Mah Hat is another double-knit, completely reversible accessory. Rah!
The perfect beanie for a spring or autumn day, the Quinn Cap‘s lace pattern lets in the air but still keeps your head warm.
These are real winter mitts, dense and warm and perfect to layer on top of leather gloves. The cable that gives the Twisted Mitts their name adds just the right amount of texture to this awesome handspun by Knit Collage.
An oversized entrelac shrug, Writer’s Block rests comfortably on the shoulders and drapes beautifully in the back. The woven texture of the entrelac is a great way to highlight hand dyed tonal colors like Madelinetosh Tosh DK (this shrug gets its name from those colors: Ink, Composition Book Grey, and Calligraphy).
The incredible drape from this single-ply silk stranded with real brass sequins is perfect for Heavy Metal, a headband/scarf combo piece that uses two different stitch patterns to showcase this great Knit Collage yarn.
The pattern for these squishy soft 1×1 rib fingerless mitts is free on Ravelry!
The Sonnet Cowl pairs lace with cables and tastefully placed bobbles in a one skein set with the Sonnet Mitts.
