  • Accessorize It with Knitscene Accessories

    Beacon Shawl by Megi Burcl A note from Kathleen: Knitscene Accessories is here, just in time to cast on a portable project for summer travel. I need to cast on a smaller project ASAP, because it's too hot for my bottom up sweater to rest in my lap as I'm finishing it up. I'm nuts about the...

  • Cactus Blossom Sweater Kits are Here!

    When I was pulling together the components for the Knitsene presents 5 Next Step Sweaters eBook , I was struck again by how beautiful Kate Jackson's Cactus Blossom Pullover is. I'd wanted to knit this pattern since I first saw it in the magazine, but hadn't yet (you know how that goes—so...

  • Knitted Counterpanes and How to Work a Yarnover at the Beginning of a Row

    For the summer issue of Interweave Knits, Ava Coleman "designed" this counterpane baby blanket. I put designed in quotation marks because of what Ava herself had to say about the project: "Just like many of today's patterns that claim to be original work, this is the sum of stitch...

  • Put your colorful sock yarn to work!

    I don't know about you, but I have a bunch of beautiful hand-dyed and self-striping sock yarn in my yarn stash. I feel like I should call this portion of my stash a collection, since I keep buying more, but I never use it! Actually, that's a bit of a fib; I did use a skein for a shawl last year...

  • Your First Color Knitting Project

    Are you intimidated by Fair Isle knitting? This technique, also called stranded knitting, uses two colors at the same time to knit a motif.

  • Muy Caliente! The Ojo de Dios Shawl is hot!

    I've seen a lot of shawl patterns come across my desk, but Ojo de Dios by Vanessa Ewing, which originally appeared in Interweave Knits Winter 2013, has got to be one of my favorites. I knit it last year, and I wore it so much last winter that I actually had to wash it—I've only washed one...

  • Become a Sock Knitter

    When I first started knitting, I was told numerous times that knitting socks wasn’t “hard.” And it isn’t, I guess, but like any new skill, it seems hard until you’ve had a little practice. And the best practice is . . . you guessed it, knitting a pair of socks! I started...
