From LionBrand yarn site.
The pattern , from Yarnspiration, is shown in two different color ways, and it’s easy to dream up many other combinations that would be just as pretty. Requires worsted weight yarn and size E/4 (US) (3.5mm) hook.
Striking in its simplicity, this crocheted tunic caught my eye in the Lion Brand Newsletter this evening. Done up in Homespun using a size 10.5 (US) hook, it’s calling out to me to use the blue Homespun that started out as a throw and never made it home. This looks like something I’ll wear a lot.
Introducing suave little Bubby the bear, from Knitty.com. Another addition to the yet-to-be-knitted imaginary planned menagerie. Looks easy and quick too, not to mention it’s a great little stash buster!
A picture is worth a thousand words, but I simply have to add two more : “too cute”.
12/13/14 Note to those wishing to access this pattern:
The link to the pattern and the charts is posted below, in red. This is the only one that I have access to myself, and it’s the only one I’ve knitted myself. Someone commented that she had a similar pattern, which has prompted many to post here asking for it. Apparently she has not responded to requests posted in comments.
While browsing knitting patterns, this vintage 1940’s pattern caught my eye. More than 20 years ago, my mother-in-law, Louise, knitted this stocking for my husband, using the Christmas tree and Santa motifs, and how could I not post the pattern here?! Ours is shown on the left, and the generic below.

As of today (12/13/14), this link works.
Worsted weight yarn and size 5 (US) double pointed needles.
Just up this weekend in the Ram Wools Newsletter is this fantastic looking shawl pattern that should be lots of fun to knit. It’s made with one solid and one tweed skein of their new fingering weight yarn, Eco Llama. I love the mitered effect. Requires a size 2 or 3 (US) circular needle. The pattern is free and can be downloaded here. I’m off to order the yarn, which comes in some yummy earth tones. Which to choose? Hmm.
