random cute stuff i find while wasting my time online, lots of diy/décor inspiration and the occasional zombie-related post.
This is that Blanket that Everyone was Looking for a Pattern for! DIY Giganto Blanket here Finally Finished now with Tutorial and Pattern at Ravelry here for $4.99. You have to sign up at Ravelry, but that’s free. I just watched the video (link at bottom) with my significant other and it is amazing. Extreme knitting. Written at Ravelry:
This enormous blanket is knit on 1 1/2” PVC pipe, using slightly-felted superwash (yes, you read that right) unspun wool roving. This pattern is more of a tutorial, as the pattern is: CO 28, k2 p2, BO!
If you’ve ever wanted to knit in a gigantic gauge, this pattern teaches you where to find the raw materials, how to create “yarn” and “needles” from unusual objects, and finally how to knit up your very own giganto-blanket!
Pretty handmade crochet envelope. Not super useful, but lovely as can be.
A chevron baby blanket! So totally cute! And the yarn used makes it look quite comfy. Click through for the pattern!
These cosies from Pickles are the perfect project to use up scrap yarn we all have lying around.
Awesome baby blanket, but I actually want to make one for myself. =)
Pretty pouf made using Amy Butler’s Gum Drop Pillow pattern. I love the fabric choice in this one.
Knit shorts, yay! I posted the link to the original pattern here a long time ago, when A Pair and a Spare’s Geneva first talked about it, but since winter is coming to the North Hemisphere, I thought people would like to be reminded of this beauty. You can find the pattern here. Check some other knit shorts for inspiration here.
