Last week Issue 4 of Knit Now Magazine came out and there is a pattern I designed in it :D.

Nexus hat and mittens are covered in intertwining cables and are really snugly making them perfect for cold weather (as can be seen by the fact they appear in a few other pictures in the magazine - the photoshoot was clearly freezing!) They come in three size: child's, women's and men's and you can always use the small instructions for the decreases but cast on a larger number to make a shorter hat.

A few mistakes cropped up when the magazine converted from the chart I sent into their preferred style so check Ravelry for the corrected charts soon.

In a few months I will be making the pattern available for download on Ravelry with full written instructions as well as the charts.

I think I have knitter's disease. Normal people, when they're cold, either wear some of the many woolly items they already own or go and buy one. Me, I decide to knit myself something. Luckily this was a quick knit and therefore finished before the weather was unsuitable for wearing it (and if the winter now turns out to be really mild just to spite me I'm not going to complain).

This uses a double mistake rib to make it extra stretchy which means I can do this:

I just created my first knitting pattern :)

I bought two balls of Sirdar Balmoral at Christmas to make a hat from but couldn't find a pattern I liked so I made one up. I really like how it came out and the wool is really soft and squidgy.

So I decided to share it with the rest of the world. It can now be bought from ravelry for £2.50 Pattern Link

And if you don't know what Ravelry is and you like knitting or crocheting then you should really check it out. It has a database of thousands of patterns and you can see who else has made the same thing as well as lots of other cool features.
