House Cup Cozy

Recently I have been in a Potter mood. As the months get colder I tend to favor hot drinks. I knitted this cozy and wanted to share it with the world. This cozy pattern can be applied to any chart and adjusted to fit your needs. I used worsted and dk yarns. Ideally you want to use the same weight to avoid any pulling and bunching around the color areas.

Materials Needed:

  • Two “house-colored” yarns
  • Size 7 (4.5 mm) straight, double pointed, or circular knitting needles
  • Stitch markers
  • “Houses Chart”
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle

CO 32 stitches

R1-3 K1 P1 ribbing around

R4 (Working in sockenette stitch) K2, inc, knit to last 3, inc, K2

R5 Purl (or Knit if working in the round) across, placing marker for beginning and end of chart section

R6 K2, inc, knit to first marker, work chart, knit to last 3, inc, K2

R7-12 Work chart in sockenette stitch

Repeat rounds 4-12 until chart is complete, with a single additional round of main color

Finish off with 3 rows of K1 P1 ribbing and bind off

Seam together, weave in ends, and enjoy.

TIP! When changing colors in knitting twist your two yarns over one another at the point of the color change, over one way then back on the next change. This will prevent gaps from forming resulting with holes in the finished project.

Hat for Emrys. My first project ever done with homespun yarn! I followed this pattern but ended with a basic ribbing rather than the fancy bottom. Was running out of time to finish the hats before the babies arrived!

Knitting Pattern: Assassin’s Creed Beanie

This was my first time knitting from a chart, doing color work, and making my own pattern. I didn’t start the first row of the chart soon enough, but now I know for next time. This is a very, very simple hat pattern that could be used with any chart, or even without a chart. I plan to make my toddler a hello kitty one and myself one (not sure what picture for mine yet).
This hat features a rolled brim but you could do garter stitch or ribbing for a folded brim of you wish. Note: This is a simple hat pattern probably just like 100 others online; this is not for profit and I have not searched the vast web for this exact pattern. I used Iam 4MAN’s chart available here. Any chart could be used to customize this hat!
You will need:
  • One skein worsted weight or other medium weight yarn
  • US size 9 16″ circular needles
  • US size 9 DPNs (magic loop works too)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stitch marker
  • Measuring tape or ruler
Gauge
16 stitches = 4″ in stockinette (row gauge unimportant)
Instructions
Using long tail method, cast on 80 stitches. Place marker and join, being careful not to twist.
Rnd 1: Knit around.
Repeat Rnd 1 until hat measures 8 inches from rolled brim.
Begin and continue working color from chart a few inches above brim.
To shape crown switch to DPNs when needed or use magic loop method.
Rnd 1: (k2, dec) around.
Rnd 2: knit around.
Rnd 3: (dec, k1) around.
Rnd 4: knit around.
Rnd 5: k2tog around.
Rnd 6: k2tog around.
Working only in knit in the round will create stockinette stitch. To finish use tapestry needle to thread yarn through remaining loops, weave in ends, and model it! No blocking is required for this hat. You can also add a fleece lining inside or a pompom on top!
