My current work in progress:

Corrugated Shawl, designed by Cecelia Campochiaro, knit from Crave Caravan in the Tilly colorway, using U.S. size 4 needles.

Veronika

I am pleased to report that I have finished my Veronika Cardigan.

It’s a cocoon-style cardi, so not that easy to photograph successfully, but hopefully you get the idea.

Veronika is a pattern by Shannon Cook, and it’s a very well-written pattern, easy to follow. I used the same yarn as the designer: YOTH Daughter. I used the Black Truffle colorway, a lovely sooty black. Not the best choice for knitting in the evening in low light, but this is not a complex pattern so I had no problems.

I finished this Friday night and cast on for a quickie project.

This is the Blue Angel Headband designed by Gretchen Tracy, a free pattern available via Ravelry. I used Malabrigo Rasta ultra-bulky yarn, in the Arequita colorway and a size U.S. 15 needle. I’m not overly fond of knitting at this gauge, but I put in a couple of hours and the result is this very cute warm headband that I am going to use quite often this winter.

And in Loki’s world, all is well!

  1. Both are beautiful! I love Malabrigo Rasta.

    Veronika looks like something Lauren Hutton would have worn in the 1970s, which I mean in a good way: It looks drapey and sophisticated and warm. It looks like it goes with everything.

  2. I am in love with your Veronika, I am sure she will be worn well and be very warm to boot.

  3. Starting this pattern after I finish my current project. So glad to hear you found it well written!

  4. Love it, might be a good one for me too, especially if it’s easy. Hugs to Loki.

    Beautiful, Wendy!! 😃

  6. What a lovely, practical cardigan! And the burst of colour in your headband was just what was needed after all that black.

  7. Do you like the way it fits? I tried a similar cocoon vest a few years back and could never style it so it looked “intentional” (kind of the way I am with scarves).

  8. Love the yarn you used for your headband. It will look great worn with your Veronica.

  9. Wendy inspired me to make Veronica and I am enjoying the knit. The pattern is well written and easy to follow step by step. Do pay attention to the final stitch count at each section as it can be confusing as to how many times a row series is knit and then repeated. The increased stitch count seems to be for the repeats only but the total stitch count includes the original knit series plus the repeated sections.
    Really looking forward to wearing this sweater.
