Friday Finds


HAPPY HOBBIT DAY! I’m only a little excited to finally see this movie. EEEEEEEEEEEEE.

I may have gone a little crazier than normal this week, and I’ll talk more about that in tomorrow’s Sweaterday post, so for now, let’s just get into this week’s Finds. And don’t forget about the contest!

To win:

  • Leave a comment on each week’s Friday Finds letting me know which pattern(s) you especially like that week.
  • Make sure to include some way to contact you in that comment—email address, Ravelry username, Twitter handle, whatever, I just need to be able to let you know you’ve won.
  • Each comment must be received by 9:00 AM MST the following Monday. So for this week’s post, you must comment before 9:00 AM MST on Monday, December 17.
  • Winners will be chosen by random number generator the following Monday. I’ll contact that week’s winner and we’ll work out the details.
  • The prize pattern is not limited to the patterns included in the Friday Finds. Patterns are limited to digital versions, though not only Ravelry-accessible patterns. Any pattern from your personal wishlist (under $7) could be yours.


So, how about it? Which of these patterns are you digging this week?

  • Aviendha (€3.90) by Melanie Berg is a delightful stripy shawl worked in garter stitch. I love the color combination of the sample!

  • Kamila Janiszewska’s Wintering (free) is a lovely little shawl worked in bulky yarn with a contrasting lace panel at the outer edge.

  • Flou (free) by Airali Handmade is a sweet little crocheted hat, worked in a crocheted rib stitch.

  • Not a pattern, but I want to find something to incorporate motifs from Ruth Klein Cook’s Doctor Who Faux Fair Isle Chart (free). And by “something” I mean EVERYTHING.


  • Linden Down’s Jacqueline ($6.50) is a great swing coat with deep ribbing and double rows of buttons. I especially love the collar shaping!

  • NO, I will probably not let a week go by without including a mitten pattern for the foreseeable future. I LOVE MITTENS. MY LOVE WILL NOT BE DENIED. Especially when folks such as Megan Grewal are making adorable Honey Mittens ($4) with their lovely honeycomb stitch.

  • Janet (free) by Kelly Nicole is a lacy beret worked in two colors and simple openwork stitch.

  • In other nerdy news, I was delighted to see another George R. R. Martin character get some love in Purrlescent’s Melisandre Socks (free). I love the wide traveling stitches pattern!

  1. I always queue a million mitten patterns and even knit them occasionally but I hardly ever wear mittens! I have dogs and even flip-top mittens are too much hassle when doling out the dog treats.
