DIY Crochet Frog and Goldfish Large Coin Purses’ Pattern from Laura Sutcliffe on Ravelry. $3.52 per pattern and Ravelry is a signup site with lots of free and pay patterns. First seen on inspiration & realisation’s FB page. Friendly Note to Make/craftzine: When you credit a blog on Tumblr, credit the original poster and not the reblogger (I credit your blog if I saw a DIY there first). It’s really easy to find the original Tumblr poster.

To Grandmas House Adult Version by Melissa Schaschwary

I absolutely ADORE this new pattern I’ve just purchased on Ravelry - it’s a reversible cape that evokes Red Riding hood on one side and wolf ears on the other! - but it will require an enormous amount of diddly little DK yarn. IN TWO COLORS. BECAUSE IT’S REVERSIBLE.

Which will cost a foolish amount and I HATE diddly little yarns and could I possibly size it up to Aran-weight maybe, or make a smaller size but still somehow accommodate the sheer amount of boob tissue I’d need to bang in at the front there? 

THIS is pretty much the only portion of my life where I sit down and work through mathematics.

Not any of the scientific bits, really.

Just the knitting.

DIY Knit Outlander Inspired Cowl Free pattern by Kalurah on Ravelry.  I have seen a pay pattern on Etsy almost identical to this one, except I like this one better. “The Gathering” cowl is knit with size 50 (25mm) needles. It is free to sign up for Ravelry (no spam). Kalurah describes the cowl:

This cowl is inspired by the cowl worn by Claire Randall on the hit series Outlander.

I’ve studied the photos online and I think I have a really close interpretation. The cowl is knit entirely in Garter Stitch and the seam from Provisional Cast On and Kitchener Stitch is completely INVISIBLE!

The pattern has two full twists worked into the cowl so there’s no need to fuss with it after putting it on.

Cowl is SUPER stretchy and can be pulled down over your shoulders for an adorable little Capelet or pulled over your head and worn as a hood.

Here’s another Outlander DIY Chunky Knit Infinity Scarf Pattern from Knit 1 LA.
