Featured Indie Designer of the Day: Bonnie Sennott

I just finished up my first project from the Indie Design Gift-A-Long, a Shallows infinity scarf designed by Bonnie Sennott of Blue Peninsula Knits. I knit it with Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in the Well Water colourway and using Miyuki seed beads.

Shallows

Bonnie’s designs are just gorgeous. They are elegant and stylish, the kind of timeless pieces that anyone could wear and keep in their wardrobe for a very long time.

She has 8 patterns available for the Gift-A-Long, 4 cowls (Birchleaf, Biscuit, Deephaven and Shallows) and 4 mitts (Shallows, Rockywold, Fiery Searcher and Leaves of Three).

Again, you should go check her out, you will not be disappointed! Also, there is just over a day left in the Gift-A-Long sale so hurry over to Ravelry quick so you can still get the 25% discount. And although the sale is almost over, we will still be knitting and crocheting along together until Dec. 31st so there’s lots of fun and prizes left to be had.

Mariette Scarf

Time for a new pattern!

I can’t help but think that cashmere feels the need to be touched just as much as we feel the need to touch it. What better place to have it rest than around your neck, giving you a warm hug on blustery days. This beautiful variegated yarn calls for a simple stitch pattern so the colours can be the star of the show. Add a couple of chunky buttons for a little extra interest and you’ve got a soft, stylish accessory to show off all winter long.

Scarf on a Tree

Mariette is worked flat in seed stitch – TV knitting at its best! Buttons are sewn on near the cast-on edge. The scarf is intended to be wrapped around the neck two times and then buttoned closed, echoing the infinity-scarf style without having to cast on 300 stitches.

Scarf on the Snow

As usual, you can buy my pattern here on the blog or through my Ravelry store. Thanks to Elenor Dixon for technical editing and Ryan Barr for the lovely photos.
