After a few knitted projects, I was left with odd balls of yarn. So what to do with them...
I had one 100gms of Teddy Chunky yarn in peach, and decided to design my own hat. The cable pattern I included was from another pattern, and the rest is in rib.
Not too tight a fit, which is nice, but nice and snug.
Stripe Cable Skirt.
I also had Lilac and Purple Aran weight yarn left. So decided to make my first stripe outfit. I decided to make a skirt, not using a pattern, just made up the pattern
Also the first time I have tried to work out measurements and stitches required from scratch
I included a nice cable pattern on the front of the skirt, to give a bit of interest and also because I love cable.
The back I kept as plain stocking stitch, matching up the stripe in the pattern same as the front
And added garter stitch at the bottom of the skirt.
Lovely warm feel to this skirt, with the yarn being Aran and it will match a Lilac cardigan and Lilac and Purple waistcoat I knit last year :D
