Favorite Self-Striping Projects

Favorite Self-Striping Projects

There is something incredibly addictive about knitting with self-striping yarn. That is why we love working with Uneek Worsted. Time flies by, when you are anticipating the next color. 

 

Simple Projects
When all you want to do is knit and watch the color unfold, these are the projects for you! Great projects for beginner knitters.

 

Darn It Stripe It cowl 
16" US#7 needle

Unique Uneek Hat and Fingerless Mitts
16" US#7 and #6 needles
#6 and #7 DPNs

This pattern is for a set of 4 fingerless mitts or a hat. Knit with 1 skein of Uneek Worsted that you split into 2 balls. Stripes are alternated between balls. Note that because of the striping, the fingerless mitts will not be identical.

Crochet
If you are in the mood to crochet try the Muirlands Cowl.

If you don't need things to match, try these:

Jo's Perfect Slipper Socks
US#4 DPNs

Available Sizes: Child - Men's

Uneek Worsted Plays well with others.

Tofte Hat
16" US#7 and #4 needles
US#7 DPNs
This hat uses one skein of a solid worsted (like Rios or Dream in Color Classy) and one skein of Uneek. The pictured hat was knit by a favorite customer Sara in Rios Lettuce and Uneek 4003.

Versa Cowl
16" US#8 needles
One of the most popular projects this year has been the Versa Cowl. We orginally made this by combining a variegated and a solid yarn. However, now that the Uneek is back in stock, I think it would be great to combine a skein of Uneek with a solid. Here are some ideas for good combinations:

These combinations with Uneek Worsted would also work beautifully for the Throwback Cardigan or the Hoopla hat.

A day away can be just the break you need. And while I know that Glen Ellyn is not Rhinebeck (home of the famous sheep and wool festival), it is a lovely spot for a day trip, especially in the Fall.

What to Knit When you Don't Know What to Knit

On Saturday, a customer told me that she loves to knit but hates picking out the project and the yarn. I have heard this before, but I admit, the first time I heard it, I was shocked.

There are a lot of decisions to make everyday. We are happy to tell you what to make if you want us to. 😀
