Knitting Inspiration in Warm Weather

Once the weather usually turns warmer, a lot of knitters, such as myself, run into “knitters’ block.”  I don’t know what to knit and I want some inspiration!  Still, the warm weather months are an excellent time to get ready for the colder ones.  Thinking ahead, here are three scarf patterns that are excellent for you to knit during the hot summer to get ready for the cooler ones that will be upon us before you know it.

Three Great Scarf Patterns

Full Circle Button Scarf:  This first pattern was written by WUL founder, Angelia Reed!  It’s a beautiful scarf pattern that she designed and is selling for $4.00 on Ravelry.  Quality patterns a rare gems online, and this is one of them. I’ve seen the finished product of this scarf in person, and it’s gorgeous.

MissMarple Scarf:  Now, this is one of my personal favorites.  It’s a keyhole scarf, meaning that it’s constructed so that you can slip one end into a loop on the other, and keep the draft off your neck.  Actually, it’s just easier to show you a picture.  This one is free, but the measurements are in metric, so you will have to do a little math to figure out your gauge and measurements.

Jenn's Miss Marple Scarf

Not a Celebrity Scarf (But it Should Be):  This particular pattern has a special place in my heart; it’s where I learned basic increasing and decreasing right after I started knitting.  Written by knitting manufacturer Skacel, this pattern is knit it one piece, but looks like modular triangles.  It looks great in slow color changing ombre yarns.  It’s great for both beginners and advanced knitters.  Oh, and it’s free, too.

Do you have a little more warm weather inspiration for knitting?
