Are you bored with what’s on your needles? Need a fresh project to get your year started? Knit Picks has the answer with their new collection: Petite Presents — a knitter’s stashbusting dream! 30, count ’em, 30 colorful, fun projects that you will actually be happy to make & give as gifts ….. or keep! From cowls to cozies, socks to scarves, mittens, hats and shawls galore. Even a clock! Then there is my personal favorite, the Mini Kitty Pouf — way too cute.
I designed the Transitions Boot Cuffs using 5 colors arranged from lightest to darkest. Knit in the round, they are stranded, using only 2 colors at a time. A Latvian braid finishes off this boot topper. Jazz up any outfit or just shrug off the winter doldrums.
Petite Presents is available through Knit Picks as a high quality paperback or downloadable eBook, or each pattern is available separately. Currently priced at $14.99, that’s just 50 cents a pattern!
The cuffs are knit using Knit Picks Palette which is a 100% Peruvian Highland Wool in fingering weight, available in 150 Colors! For the brown cuff, I used Grizzly Heather, Rooiboos Heather, Lynx Heather, Wheat Heather and Coriander Heather. The Pink cuff uses Asphalt, Ash, Cosmopolitan, Silver and Cream.
