zomer zilt

zomer zilt by La Visch Designs

Sometimes when I think of summer I get this picture of a turquoise sea, rolling gently over a white sandy beach. Imagine the heat of the sun and the cool breeze carrying the scent of salt. This image of summer bliss is what inspired me to design the Zomer Zilt shawl, which is just right to throw on when the sun goes down and the air becomes a tad chilly. Knitted from the top down, with only 100 g of fingering weight yarn, it’s the perfect summer project.

This design features broomstick lace, so called because it is similar to lace created with a broomstick and crochet hook. It is worked over two rows: on the first row, the yarn is wrapped twice around the needle between each knit stitch. On the next row, the wraps are dropped to create elongated stitches which are worked in groups of four.

the easy going shawl

The Easy Going Shawl is the result of my need for an uncomplicated knit to work on during my rather too short vacation. No pattern and charts are needed to hand once you get into the rhythm of knitting. With this shawl recipe, you can use 200 g of an aran weight yarn for a warm cover-up sized shawl or as little as 100 g of fingering weight for a shawlette or kerchief. The result: an easy to make and even easier to wear sweet little shawl which you can throw on when it’s a little bit chilly, or just jazz up a simple tee.

frost giant – free pattern

Frost Giant - a free pattern by La Visch Designs

Sometimes you just want to get warm and make a statement. With the Frost Giant Cowl, you can achieve both. The cowl is worked flat and has two finishing options, choose the one you feel most comfortable with. The finishing options consist of either plain seaming or a three-needle-bind-off.

Materials

Yarn
The sample cowl was knit using 270 m (297 yards) / 450 g Wibra Myrna [80% acrylic, 20% wool; 60 m (66 yds) per 100 g skein] held double.
Substitute any (extra) bulky weight yarn for a similar result. Using a thinner yarn will result in a less humongous cowl.

Recommended needles
Needles in your preferred style in the following sizes (or to match gauge):

  • Size 14 mm (US #18)
  • 1 extra needle in size 14 mm (US #18) or slightly smaller (only needed with the three-needle bind-off finishing option)

Adjust needle size appropriately when using a less bulky yarn for a smaller cowl.

Other

  • Yarn needle
  • Waste yarn (optional) – only needed with the three-needle bind- off finishing option, worsted or aran weight yarn held double or triple can be used

Gauge

Gauge is not critical in this design. For the sample cowl:
5.5 sts / 8 rows = 10 cm (4 inches) measured over 2×2 rib.

Sizes and Finished Measurements

27 cm (11 inch) wide (unstretched), 70 cm (27 ½ inch) long.

Skills required

The plain seaming finishing option in this pattern is suitable for the beginning knitter. The three-needle bind-off finishing option requires a provisional cast on. Because this is a more advanced knitting technique, this version is suitable for the intermediate knitter.
Stitches used include knit, purl and slipping stitches.

Abbreviations

BO – bind off
CO – cast on
k – knit
p – purl
rep – repeat
sl – slip
st(s) – stitch(es)
wyib – with yarn in back

Pattern notes

  • Yarn is held double throughout.
  • Always slip the first stitch of the row purl-wise with the yarn held to the back.
  • When you run out of yarn, a new skein will be attached by knitting a few stitches with both the new and old yarn held double. The ends can be woven in later.

Instructions

Seamed finishing option:
CO 18 sts with the yarn held double.
Row 1: Sl1wyib, k2, [p2, k2] 3 times, p3.

Three-needle bind-off finishing option:
CO 18 sts with waste yarn held double or triple.
Row 1: Knit. Switch to working yarn held double.
Row 2: K3, [p2, k2] 3 times, p3.

Both finishing options:
Next: Sl1wyib, k2, [p2, k2] 3 times, p3.
Rep this row until length of piece is 148 cm (58 inches) or desired length.

Bind-off
Seamed finishing option:
BO using your BO of choice, for example, the knit bind-off.

Next: Hold the ends of the piece together and use the yarn needle to sew both ends together and form a loop. Be careful not to twist the loop before seaming the ends together.

Three-needle bind-off finishing option:
Transfer the stitches from the waste yarn to the extra needle, be careful not to twist the loop when holding the beginning and end of the piece together.

Step 1: Hold both needles holding sts next to each other.
Step 2: With the third needle, knit each st through both the first st on the needle closest to you as well as through the first st on the back needle at the same time. Wrap as for a knit st and complete the stitch as usual.
Step 3: Rep step 2 one time.
Step 4: There are now 2 sts on your right hand needle. Lift the first st worked over the second st worked, using the tip of your left hand needle.
Step 5: Rep steps 3-4 until all sts are BO.

Click here for a tutorial on how to work a three-needle BO.

Finishing
Weave in ends and wear with attitude!

Tip: Use a crochet hook to weave yarn ends in, when the yarn is to thick to use regular yarn needles. Just grab the yarn with the hook, pull it through the fabric and repeat.

stormy seas shawl

stormy seas shawl by La Visch Designs

The Stormy Seas shawl is a half circle design, knit solely in garter stitch. It features the Sea Foam lace pattern. This pattern shows off wonderfully variegated and self-striping yarns with long to medium lengths of color. Sea Foam lace uses multiple yarn overs which are dropped on the following row. This, combined with the all-over garter stitch, gives an airy, textured, reversible fabric.

While the sample of the Stormy Seas shawl was knit in hand spun yarn, it can of course also be knit with a commercial yarn. For a similar result, use fingering or sport weight yarn. It can be made as small or large as you like, just knit until your yarn runs out.

handspun delight

Handspun Delight shawl.

The Handspun Delight shawl showcases hand spun yarn. It has been designed to be knit with the typical thick-and-thin yarn which most new spinners produce with their first efforts. This design works well with hand-dyed, variegated yarns, or with a combination of yarn odds and ends. Because of this it is also great for some stash busting.

The shawl consists of a stockinette body and a border based on the Old Shale lace pattern. Charts and full written instructions are given.

This pattern gives instructions for shawls in three sizes: S (M, L) with 5 (7, 9) Old Shale lace fans. On all three versions it is possible to extend the lace edging.
Bulky weight yarn in size S will give a shawlette sized piece similar to the pink sample. Worsted weight yarn in size L and the extended lace border gives a very generous shawl as in the blue-green sample. Working the largest size and border with fingering weight yarn would give a decent shawlette.

Skills required

This pattern uses various increases and decreases: k2tog, k2tog tbl, skp, kfb, M1, pfb and yo. Because of this it is suitable for the intermediate knitter, or the more adventurous beginning lace knitter.

Pattern details

  • Top-down
  • Written for any gauge
  • Pattern languages included: English and Dutch (Dit patroon omvat zowel een Nederlandse als een Engelse versie)

Medium size: 250 – 350 m (273 – 383 yards) of worsted to bulky weight yarn.
Large size: 350 – 600 m (383 – 656 yards) of fingering to worsted weight yarn.

Yardage estimates are variable due to differences in yarn thickness, needles chosen, preferred gauge and depth of border.

  • Needles appropriate for the yarn chosen.
  • Yarn needle
  • 6 (8, 10) stitch markers

roll it up & go crochet hook case – free pattern

Roll it up & go crochet hook case

When I learned to crochet I soon found the need to store my rapidly increasing stash of crochet hooks. But where? Make it myself of course! Since I have hooks from very thin to very thick I wanted to have one in which I can easily adjust the size of the pockets. The pattern for this Roll it Up & Go crochet hook case is written more as a template instead of exact instructions.

This pattern is written in American English crochet terminology.

Difficulty

Techniques used consist of ch, sc and slst. Because of this, the pattern is suitable for the beginner.

Materials

  • Less than 1 skein of yarn of choice
  • Even less in yarn of the same weight in a contrasting color
  • Crochet hook size 3.5 mm (US # E)
  • Crochet hook size 4 mm (US # G).

Finished Size

Any size you want it to be!

Gauge

Depends on the size desired and yarn used.

Notes

The main body of this hook case consists of a rectangle shape worked in Sc in the front loops only to get a more thin and flexible fabric.

Instructions for the roll it up & go crochet hook case

The body of the hook case

Ch a length equal to the length of the longest hook you want to keep in the case + 10 cm (4 inch) for the pockets. Let’s call that amount of chains “A”. In my case A was equal to 51 sts. Make sure your A is an uneven number. Ch 1, turn.

Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn. Work the sc in the single bump on the back of the chain for a finishing that will look the same on both ends of the rectangle.

Row 2: Sc (in front loops only!) in each sc for (A minus 3) / 2 sts, 1 sc in both loops of st, ch 1, skip 1 sc, 1 sc in both loops of st, sc in front loops only in each sc across, ch 1, turn

Repeat row 2 until you have twice the number of crochet hooks you want to keep in the case + 12. It is however always wise to make it bigger than you think you’ll possibly be needing. Fasten off.

Create the pocket

First, sc along one of the sides of the rectangle (perpendicular to the rows) with a contrasting color. I used orange. Then fasten off.

Next, fold up the side you just worked on perpendicular to the rows. Doing this will make a pocket, make sure the pocket is approx. 5 cm (2 inch). Fasten onto the crease with a slip stitch. Sc up the side of the pocket, making sure to crochet through both the upper and lower row. When you reach the end of the pocket, continue to sc up the side of the case, along the upper edge and down the other side. Then crochet both rows together again.
Fasten off.

Holding the hooks in place

In the middle of the rectangle, the [ 1 sc in both loops of stitch, ch 1, skip 1 sc, 1 c in both loops of stitch] part created a line with “holes” in the fabric. These holes will be used to slip stitch the “holding” part of the hook case onto the rectangle. Up to 5 mm hooks, I use 1 st loop to hold the hook down. For bigger hooks skip 1 or even 2 holes and adjust the tension of your yarn to make a slip stitch loop big enough to accommodate the bigger hook.
By using a contrasting color you can at any time in the future rework this part to fit more (or less) smaller or bigger hooks.

Hold your yarn at the back of your work (the outside of your crochet hook case). Push your hook into the work from the front to the back at the edge of the rectangle where column with the holes begins. Hook the yarn from behind your work and bring the new loop to the front. Be sure to hold on to the loose end of yarn!

Then, again push your hook through the fabric to the back, hook the yarn and bring it to the front of your work. This time bring your newly formed loop through the old one. Be careful not to pull the yarn too much or the fabric will pucker. When you reach the other side of the rectangle, fasten off.

Closure

In my Roll it Up & Go crochet hook case I used ties to keep it closed. Of course feel free to use buttons or something else instead.

With the larger hook make a chain big enough to wrap around your hook case when rolled up plus extra to tie into a bow. Also, add about 20 extra chains, the chain will end up shorter than it initially is. A total of 40 to 50 cm (16 to 17 inches) will probably be enough.

Next, switch to the smaller hook and slipstitch in the second chain from the hook and till the end. Fasten off.
Repeat for second tie.

Finishing

Sew the ties to the outside of the Roll it Up & Go crochet hook case as pictured. Weave in ends and fill your hook case up with crochet hooks.
