8 Weekend Knitting Projects

Relax with family and friends this weekend while enjoying some quality knitting time with these 8 new projects.


Grab that skein of fingering weight yarn you've been saving for the perfect project or visit my Fingering yarn selection and cast on Kitman Figueroa's triangular shawl Thorn or rectangular lace scarf Carlina.


Corn Maize Socks

Or knit a pair of cuff down socks, Lisa Ellis Designs' Corn Maize feature a simple mix of knits and purls used to create an intriguing maze and a perfectly snug fit.

And Lisa Ellis' darling seamless Boy's Preppy Vest is knit in one piece, is designed in 5 sizes and perfect for the upcoming holidays.

Preppy Boy's Vest

Ilga Leja's Mimi shawl gives you two options, a quick shawlette or a full size shawl, both are knit in a DK weight yarn.


Mimi is worked in several sections, each with its own features and it ends with a lacy knitted-on-edging for the lower border.

V-Start Triangle Lace Shawl

A flattering neckline and easy-to-knit lace patterns combine to create HeartStrings' appealing V-Start Triangle Lace Shawl. This versatile pattern includes instructions for 4 designs, a shoulder shawl and a full length shawl as well as a "Guidance for Re-sizing" to easily adapt for a shawlette and neckerchief!

Ribby Slipper Socks

From toddler to adult both of these pairs of slippers will keep your family warm. Cathy Carron turns simple ribs into plush, striking texture with a chunky yarn in the Ribby Slipper Socks. Cozy and comfortable, a clever easy construction makes the socks easy to knit.

Aran Isle Slippers

The Aran Isle Slippers by Jennifer Lang make big use of a small canvas. A cable panel adorned upper, seed stitch surround and stockinette stitch sole add up to slippers to live in all winter.

Thank you and have a great weekend!
