Indie Design GAL: Everything Else

This is part of my on-going Indie Designer Gift-A-Long 2016 series, where from November 23rd – December 31st I highlight some patterns from my fellow designers also participating in the event! Each post will highlight at minimum 5 different designers and their patterns.

Don’t forget to join in the fun, we’re all over here chatting up a storm (when our fingers aren’t flying that is).

There is a really great selection of patterns that don’t quite fit into any of the other categories that I set up for this little series. From toys, to home, to accessories, there’s some really cool creative things people are designing from two sticks and some yarn!

vattenVatten by Talitha Kuomi

From the pattern description
‘Vatten’ is knit in the round as one long, narrow tube.
A little clever folding and you end up with a charming clutch with both an inner and outer layer of knitting built in.

Uses 200 – 220 yds of DK weight yarn.

Felicity Flamingo by Browneyedbabs

From the pattern description
This cuddly flamingo is knit in the round from the tail up to the beak using short rows for shaping. An interesting knit this makes an unusual toy the kids seem to love playing with.

Uses 219 – 273 yds of DK weight yarn.

fleurFleur de Noel Christmas Stockings by Karen Fletcher

From the pattern description
Several years ago a friend asked me to make Christmas stockings for his family. He wanted simple striped ones but as I made them I couldn’t help but think what an amazing canvas Christmas stockings would be for colorwourk, these were the eventual result.

Uses 450 – 600 yds of worsted weight yarn.

gardenslugGarden Slug by Cheezombie

From the pattern description:
The body is knit in one piece, and the lips are knit separately. There is only 1 seam to sew in the entire pattern! Basic increases and decreases, as well as short rows, are used in the shaping. Photos and stitch descriptions are included.

They are approximately 6 inches long and 6 inches tall. Size will change depending on choice of yarn and needle size.

burridgeBurridge Lake Afghan by Anna Dalvi

From the pattern description:
The Burridge Lake Aran Afghan is designed to be a classic Aran afghan, and is perfectly symmetrical. The center panel is symmetrical within itself, and the two side panels are mirror images of each other. The entire afghan is covered in braids and twists, and exposes the knitter to a number of different braids, bobbles and stitches, and minimizes the use of the (boring) stockinette/ reverse stockinette stitch.

Uses 3700 yds of aran weight yarn.
