After many requests, we have finally perfected and patterned up a crochet version of our most popular pattern, the Center Row Lace Headband / Neck Warmer. The dimensions of the finished product are very close to the knit version, and the look is almost identical. I hope that you crocheters out there are happy with the results. This pattern comes out just in time to stylishly fight off that winter weather!
We’ve also been hard at work creating the patterns featured in our last post!

We are inspired to create wearable goodies for ourselves all the time, but how often do we knit (or crochet) goodies for our surroundings? For most of us it is not until the fall / winter months that we start to want to surround ourselves in these delux textures. Well… it’s that time of the year and here’s my list of knit decor must haves for the season. These are so fashionable that they can be used / on display around all year long.
Casamania Granny Knitted Lamp Shades recently featured on one of our favorite haunts, Daily Candy.
cb2 knitted pouf, simple yet stylish and super useful. Comes in the season’s color must haves. Personally I’m getting a bit tired of orange so the grey really appeals to me, a neutral good for year around.
Biscuit Scout’s hand knitted cream aran armchair slip cover is quite possibly the coolest twist on utilitarian object EVER! This beautifully crafted “chair sweater” is perfect for those chilly winter nights. This would be perfect in front of a fire place, with a book and draped in… you guessed it… a matching aran blanket! I have about 3 chairs I can think of that I’d love to cover but I’m not sure if I’d have the heart to sit on them.
The last but not least is this beautiful porcelian knit texture bowl from Annette Bugansky Design. We saw this trend blow up last season but it’s one that I personally hope never goes away. Check out the links for awesome options of these faux knit beauties.
What are your favorite knit decor items this season?

Maybe it’s my animation roots or the fact, for me, seeing The Abominable Snowman signals that start of the holidays… what ever it is I’m diggin’ the Yeti. A stark contrast to his Bigfoot cousin, the Yeti’s icy white and cornflower color combination blends expertly into his hers it’s surroundings. After recently seeing ads for one of my favorite holiday movies I was inspired to craft… perhaps there is some amigurumi is in my future? Until then I will be in search of the perfect yarn to compliment my furry fascination.
