As a follow up to my post on Spring/Summer sweater patterns, here are some of my older lightweight accessory patterns to knit this season! Links go to Ravelry where you can purchase them (or click the “patterns” menu at the top of my site).
I’m actually kind of enjoying looking back through my older designs – seems like just yesterday some of these were released when it’s been years!
Bestellen Shawl – think cables are only for heavy sweaters? Not at all! Bestellen features a lace-and-cable pattern that’s ever so pretty. Shown in laceweight yarn here (madelinetosh prairie) and fingering weight on the pattern page. Lace and cable pattern is charted only, no row by row directions.
Massey Wrap – a light and lacy stole worked on the bias in a ribbing-based lace pattern. Originally this pattern was charted only, but I recently wrote up a supplement with row by row directions that you will also receive when you purchase the pattern (as a separate file). So if you liked this one but don’t like charts, there you go!
Linger Shawl – part of my On My Way mini ebook. Linger is a top-down elongated triangle with asymmetric lace patterning and a knit-on border. Uses just one skein of Wollmeise sock yarn!
Anticipate Hat and Handwarmers – not into shawls? This hat and fingerless mitt set are easy and light enough for summer evenings.
Terauley – top down triangular shawl in a knit purl pattern for those who aren’t so into lace, with a geometric border. Uses just 100g of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock.
Cerasus Shawl – I haven’t released a lot of patterns for laceweight, but this one gets toted around a lot in the summer for when I just need something over my shoulders. The gorgeous gold yarn is from Fyberspates, just 1 skein.
Leonarda – garter ridges and an interesting drop stitch border. I wrote lots of options for this one – there are directions for a small shawlette, full size triangle shawl, or rectangular stole! Something for everyone.
Cuppa Tea Cowl – perfect for leftover bits of fingering or sport weight yarn. Shown in The Fibre Company Road to China Light, which is so drapey and light yet warm.
Ilkley Shawl – a bottom-up triangle for once! Large and small sizes, perfect for two or more colours, in garter stitch and a slip-stitch pattern.
Milkweed Shawl – an oldie but a goodie! This pattern came out in 2009 and has over 1000 projects on Ravelry, which is so amazing! Top down and reversible, using 100g of sock yarn. This sample was knit in Koigu KPPPM, and the colours really show nicely. Charted only.
Have a great weekend!
