This blog features patterns for various recent knitting projects.
Each pattern is available as a .pdf for download. The blog itself will have some notes and background information to supplement the pattern.
Most of the projects will be in worsted weight yarn. I use Vanna’a Choice acrylic worsted weight yarn from Lion Brand for almost all of my pattern development projects, as well as for many around-the-house projects, such as afghans.
This yarn is very easy to work with and holds up well when you have to rip out or “unknit” a project part way through. Also, it is easy to care for, washes well, and blocks easily, as it dries fast . The yarn is readily available, and, at least in my experience, the dye lots do not vary significantly. Many in my family are intolerant of wool and/or do not want to bother with the extra care of a traditional wool hat or sweater, both the hand washing and the moth-proofing. So Vanna’s Choice is a perfect solution.
