Friday Finds


Another Friday, another Friday Finds, and your final chance to win a pattern of your choosing just for leaving a comment on this blog post.

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 31.
  • 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.

A good number of these are patterns for children, but they were just so cute I couldn’t resist.

  • Elizabeth F. Parker’s Tern ($5) features a simple lace pattern along the neckline, set against a reverse Stockinette stitch background.

  • The Honey Toque ($4) by Megan Grewal is a slouchy hat with a slanting honeycomb pattern. For $2 more, you can get the pattern for the matching mittens.

  • Gudrun Johnston and Quince and Co recently published a print and eBook collection called Knit With Me ($26). This collection is bursting with amazing patterns, such as Ambrosia, Empire, and Granny Smith (shown).

  • Svetlana Volkova’s MOMO ($6) is a sweet little cardigan for children with a simple feather and fan pattern set into raglan sleeves.

  • I love legwarmers, even though I haven’t really worn any, and these Fly With Me legwarmers (free) are pretty intense and pretty awesome.

  • Pull Gaspard (€4) by Christine Rouvillé is an incredibly adorable child’s pullover. The pattern is currently only available in French, but I’m tempted to snag it anyway and try to translate as I go. Because what I need to knit is more children’s patterns. CLEARLY.

  • Yes, another child’s sweater pattern, but HOW CUTE are the little reindeer on Susan Crawford’s Junior Christmas Jumper (£4)?

  • Lucy Hague’s Firiel (£3.50) is a lovely garter stitch shawl worked sideways with a lace edge. So pretty!

  1. I love how unique the Pull Gaspard sweater is. I couldn’t knit it because I don’t read French, but it’s a beauty nonetheless.

  2. The Tern sweater is really stunning, but I’m also in love with the child sweaters (especially the dracula-collar of Pull Gaspard :D)

  3. gah! can’t pick just one! so torn between that lovely tern and those two kids sweaters. I have to be honest though, as lovely as the fit of Tern is, the reverse stockinette would probably make me insane. So my vote is for Pull Gaspard or the Junior Christmas Jumper.
