I want to be able to highlight new patterns, maybe even discover the next big Ravelry hit before it happens :) Because of this, the patterns will all be recently published- and they won't all just be from the top 20 New and Popular list.
So, without further adieu, I present to you my first ever Ravelry Roundup!
1. Stripe Study Shawl:
Veera Valamaki). This Shawl is part of the reason I decided to get the Ravelry Roundup going. As soon as I saw it a few weeks ago I knew it would be an instant hit- what a statement piece.
2. The Signiture Pixiebell Pixie Hat
Theo and see it in action. If one of my creations were to be featured in a movie, I wouldn't care what it was about- me and everybody I knew would be going to see it. How exciting for Diane Serviss (See all her stuff here in her Etsy shop)!
3. Arrow Cowl by Madelinetosh
What can I say? Madelinetosh knows gorgeous.
You may have recently seen her Larch Cardigan (which I will knit someday, when I have the time) all over Ravelry, now Amy offers up this simple but beautiful cowl done up in Madelinetosh Pashmina- yum!
What mother of a new baby girl wouldn't be in love with these? They're really quite perfect. If a super cute pattern weren't enough, Alana also made the pattern extra interesting for not only the knitter- but also the knitter's kids- read more about it here.
Just don't ask me to spell it... or read the pattern. Although it's not in English, there is a chart. Double knit...two colors...knit in the round... you can figure it out!
Yes, you probably all know that Jill is a good friend of mine... you may think this is a shameless plug for her first-ever design...but you know it's one of the best new designs on Ravelry- I love it (I also got to test knit it and will post pictures soon). If you happen to be coming to the Plucky Open House Saturday, her pattern will be available for purchase, along with the yarn.
Remind you of something? We all knew these wouldn't stand a chance against my love for fat little birdies- they must be knit... maybe in mobile form?
And that concludes my roundup for today. Hope you found a new pattern or two to add to your queue. Anything else tickling your knitting fancy these days? I'd love to see your roundup!
