Scarf patterns

There have been a couple requests for scarves recently.  One was an custom order based off the Green Infinity scarf.  Another one was made for one for one of the service advisers I work with.  You can find both patterns below.


-2 skeins (90 yards) Loops & Threads Cozy Wool in Fleece
-Size 12 needles
-tapestry needle


Slip the first st of every row

CO 30 sts
K to end
K3, P to last 5 sts, K4

Repeat last two rows until scarf is desired length and block scarf.
Sew both ends of scarf together making sure not to twist it

The cabled scarf was a custom order for one of the ladies at work.  She loved the stripped ribbing from the Scott Pilgrim hat.  As an added touch I put in some cables on the edges of the scarf for a framing effect. .  Last week we had some training so I got to knit in the shop, this got some pretty odd looks from the other guys there.  It got pretty cold and after a while the scarf I was making ended up wrapped around a few of us to keep warm!  

A chart for the pattern is available below the written pattern

Drink Cozy pattern

Back in November I released a post about the Star Trek drink cozy I made.  I was very excited about the pattern and since then a lot of people have expressed excitement over the cozy.  So over the past few month`s I have spent some time developing the pattern and finalizing it.  I`m happy to announce that not only is the pattern done, I've made a cozy for every colour of the away team.

Now, instead of just redshirt, the cozy is available in science officer blue and command gold!  (It took so long to find just the right colour gold!) The listings are now available on my Etsy store for individual orders, or collect them all with a custom 6-pack away team.  They make great drink markers for parties.

It`s an easy pattern and fun pattern.  The cozy is knit in the round with stockinette stitch.  The star fleet insignia is then added on afterwards using duplicate stitch.  The pattern is now available for purchase here on Ravelry.
