WHAT'S ON OUR NEEDLES 
before the leaves drop







                                Baby oh Baby in bundles of three!!

#214 Baby Pullover by Diane Soucy for Knitting Pure and Simple (1) skein Cestari.

Little Willet by Dawn Cantazaro knit in Quince & Co's new cotton Willet.

Little Garter Cardi from RaggaKnits knit in Rowans Felted Tweed.






Underground Magic by Victoria Meyers (1) skein of Findley Dappled for this multi-functional project. "You can wear it as a cowl, hooded cowl, scarf, poncho with a drapey collar, or even a shrug." 

 

Alaku on the left and Nyilt on the right from Talitha Kuomi give you the option of a scarf/wrap version of this dropped-stitch pattern in Julie Asselin's DK or the convertible version in Nice and Knit SW Sport. 


The Purl Bee's Mosaic Blanket knit in Juniper Moon's Neve. 
"Mosaic Knitting," a clever way to create elaborate, colorful patterns using only basic stitches (knit, slip and occasionally purl) from Barbara Walker's Treasury of Knitting Patterns.
HEATHER'S HELPFUL HINTS

Everybody has a favorite style of increasing but many of the invisible increases are difficult to perform, so let's take a look at one of the easiest methods.
Kfb (sometimes written Kf&b) is simple to create by knitting into the front of the stitch and then knitting into the back of the same stitch. When you are done you have a small horizontal bar across the knitting which is most obvious when you are working in stockinette stitch.
Try reversing the order of the increase stitch next time: Kbf (knit back THEN front). By knitting into the back of that itch before knitting into the front of the stitch, you create a small diagonal with the usually horizontal bump causing it to blend into your knitting less noticeably.
Give it a try!
