Good patterns for winter items - scarfs / cowls / hats etc

Postby clothmama » Sat Sep 22, 2018 6:24 am

Hi I'm starting to try to build up some stock for the market stall I want to have at Christmas and I'm about to start an infinity scarf. I was just wondering if you guys have any favorite patterns that you can point me to? Preference would be quick to do, not using huge amounts of yarn, preferably free! :giggle:

Don't know if this is any good for you Tory but it's one of my own patterns and if I remember rightly I had the whole thing made in a day

Lisa, I'm thinking I'd like to try this - the yarn I have isnt' as thick as yours - should I add stitches / up hook size or find another pattern :hohoho: I'm hopeless at working out how to 'fix' things if I dont' have what the pattern says! Help @0_Lisa_0

It's got a few lace elements so you might get away with just going up a hook size or two. If you decide you want to add extra stitches but need help with the maths just shout and I'll work it out for you, it might be quite late though as I'm just heading off to work.

Thanks Lisa @0_Lisa_0 I didn't want to start earlier and stuff up before I'd heard back from you so have started something else that looks pretty quick then I'll get onto this one. I'll do as you suggest and go up on my hook size and then see how long it is when I finish the SCFS - the beauty of that is that you can add so if I need to I'll come back with a :help: :help: for the maths :loopy: :loopy: :giggle:

@clothmama just a couple of ideas for you for some small items (anything around 3/4€ are our best sellers) little hand warmers with lavender in, cable/headphone tidies (I saw some really cute cat ones on Pinterest) Christmas tree bunting and one of our knit and natter ladies makes crocheted rings with a little silk rose stitched on (the sort you buy from the haberdashery) and we knock those out to little girls (and Japanese tourists :hohoho: ) for €2 a pop.
