Selamat Siang Friend,
Happy Father's Day! In honor of dads everywhere, try these quick & easy dad-inspired ties that are perfect for novice knitters. Add them to your outfit to inject a touch of masculine-meets-feminine charm!
This month's YarnPlay projects are all about simple stitch patterns flipped on their heads--making them great learning projects! By knitting the Vertical Stripe Tie longways, designer Kimberly Hamlin creates an unexpected look with basic garter stitch. She then combines those basic knit stitches with increases, decreases, and slip stitches--to create a selvedge edge--for a fun diagonal pattern in the Bias Knit Tie. These are two fast-finish projects that will help you practice those basic stitches AND create fun looks!
Made in silky Microspun, these patterns are perfect lightweight, small projects for summertime yarncrafting. As always, keep playing and keep creating!
P.S. Now you know how to say "hello" in Indonesian -- next month, learn a greeting in another language!
