Lacy Cable Hat

DSC_1141 (2)A couple days ago, I knitted up another one of these cable-lace hat because cables and lace are my favorite things whether on hats, scarves, legwarmers, cowls, you name it and I’ll love it.

I made up the pattern, and I’ve already started on a modified version of this, but sadly (to every knitters’ horror), I ran out of yarn [insert gasp here]. I even contemplated ripping apart the hat I have now, so I can finish it, but I have a hard time destroying anything I make, so I’m placing it on hold.

The thing is, I’m not going to be able to run to the store until this weekend, so I’m partly devastated that I won’t be finishing my new favorite project anytime soon. If you can’t tell, I’ve been in a knitting frenzy lately, so this isn’t helping me very much. (Now would be a good time to focus on my schoolwork, right? Yeah … that…)

The new version will likely make a debut on Etsy (once I finish it), but for now you can simply sit back and feast your eyes on this one.DSC_1149 (2)

I made it using Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn. The color was “Mushroom.” I really don’t know how they (or anyone else for the matter) comes up with names for these colors. It makes it really hard for me to describe the color (though pictures should suffice), but still… Does anyone else have a problem with trying to describe colors? For some reason, it’s something that’s been troubling me for a while now.

Lacy Golden Infinity Scarf – Status Report: Finished

 DSC_0995 (2)Now I know my plan was to finish this scarf in at least a month, a gradual process, but things didn’t turned out as planned. I was hit with a knitting frenzy and ended up finishing it as of last Thursday. This is probably one of the fastest scarves I’ve ever knitted, which can either be sad or not depending on what level you’re at.

Since this is the first “Knit in Progress” that I’ve ever shared with the Internet, I found it fitting to share my pattern for free, which you can find below. (Yes, I love making people scroll for things. I also think I’m funny.). DSC_0951 (3)

I highly recommend this pattern for anyone who loves infinity scarfs, who loves lacey patterns, and who loves knitting. It’s perfect for wearing as a double loop (or you can modify it), and the best part is that it’s an infinity scarf!

I’m also putting this scarf on Etsy, so you’ll be getting this exact scarf (the first ever of its kind) should you feel the need to add this number to your knitwear collection.

If you download the link and try it for yourself, I would love to hear how it turns out! And, if you send in a picture to pygmypurls@gmail.com, I’ll probably post it on my Facebook page, which is still a work in progress, just like this scarf once was.

Disclaimer: This is the first pattern I’ve typed up to share, so it’s might be missing a few components you would normally find in a professional pattern. That being said, if you have tips I could use to improve my format, please et me know!

I think that’s how it works. I’m not really sure what the protocol is on copyrights and patents, but I would love to know what kind of measures you take.
