Twisted Diamond Earwarmer

The Twisted Diamond Earwarmer pattern was inspired by the Barfi Stitch . The design has clean lines that draw the eye. It is visually interesting without being too ornamental. The selvedge stitch combined with the ribbing makes a beautiful edge. The diamond pattern down the center is gorgeous. This pattern would be great for men or women!

I must admit, this pattern took me HOURS to figure out. I started and restarted it so many times I can't even tell you. It was difficult because I was going off of a video that repeated the pattern instead of having it just once. I mostly had to just look at it and figure out the pattern. I must say excel spreadsheets were also super helpful. They were the grid I needed and not mention coloring in the cells. Even when I thought I had finally figured out the pattern, it still wasn't quite right. Shoutout to excel for allowing me to make easy adjustments to the pattern so I could get it right.

This pattern was so worth the pain, though. It's a simple design yet it's also eye-catching. In a neutral color, it goes with everything. It's great for men or women.

This pattern is also great to use up some of that left-over project yarn. You need a little bit more than scraps but definitely not a full skein. Even less than a half skein of yarn would be enough.

Materials Needed:
(2) Knitting Needles Size US 9/ 5.5mm
Red Heart Yarn Classic or any comparable worsted weight yarn
Darning Needle
Interlocking Stitch Markers (or paper clips)

Braided Joggers

Wow! I really impressed myself with these joggers! This is without a doubt the the hardest thing I've ever knit. I have never knit pants before, and I wasn't following any pattern. I was, quite literally, making it up as I went. I don't want to pat myself on the back or anything, but I think these joggers turned out pretty darn nice! I'll take you on my journey of knitting the Braided Joggers. What better place to start than with the yarn. I won this yarn several months ago through a giveaway with Stylecraft Yarns. I had no idea what I wanted to do with it, but of course I was excited about free yarn! I picked this light blue because I thought it was pretty. This yarn sat in the corner of my room for months. It was just kind of mocking me because I didn't have a clue what to do with it. It is DK weight, which is lighter than the yarn I normally use. At first, I thought I was going to use the yarn to make a triangle scarf. I even bought some yarn to make a striped sc

Dog Hat

A few weeks ago, a good friend approached me about my knitting a hat for her dog. She sent me a picture that she saw on social media of a Corgi looking adorable in a hat, and decided her dog, Walter, needed one as well. What I didn't tell her was that the picture she sent me was of a crocheted hat. Unfortunately, I do not know how to crochet, and, at this point, I don't think I'll ever learn (but who knows, I'm still young). I make this point because, in my opinion, crocheting is great for freeform-type projects like dog hats. Again, I am unfamiliar with crocheting, so I could be way off base here.  Knitting  a hat for a dog was going to be a challenge, and I knew that from the very beginning. I spent weeks (okay with many days off in between) studying the picture my friend sent me trying to figure out just how I was going to construct this thing. Just when I thought I had cracked it, I noticed another part of the hat that I hadn't considered. I compiled quite a lon

Plant Sweaters

For some reason, I am very concerned about my plants getting cold in the winter. I don't know if it's because their pots (old candle jars) feel cold to the touch or because a few years ago I accidentally killed all my plants when I opened the window next to them in the middle of winter. To be fair, I also didn't like looking through the clear glass of the old candle jars and just seeing the soil. Regardless, it makes me sad to think my plants go cold in the winter. Realistically, I'm sure these sweaters don't actually do much to keep my plants warm, but it makes me feel better. I initially started knitting these last year when I bought my first set of double pointed needles. I thought this would be a good way to practice with them. I figured if they turned out bad, I was the only one who would ever see them. It took me a while to decide on a pattern for these. First of all, I needed something that would look okay in the round. This pattern isn't the best for tha
