Cozy McBlanket

  • A blue, gray and gold striped sweater held out like a blanket.
  • A woman in a draped blue, gray and gold striped sweater.

Lyrical Knits has just released a pattern for a knitted blanket you can wear: Cozy McBlanket is a blanket with sleeves, but the magic is in some cleverly placed short rows to help it curve around your shoulders and neck for a better fit than your average blanket. No more having to leave your lap blanket behind when you make the trip from your desk to the kitchen for another cup of tea.

Stark Baking Mad: A Great British Baking Shawl

Purple, cream and green yarn.

Baking and knitting are two creative outlets that became sources of comfort during the pandemic. When we bake, we get a tasty treat to eat; When we knit, the finished object isn’t edible, but it keeps us warm and nourishes the soul.

Lyrical Knits’ upcoming mystery knit-a-long marries both baking and knitting in Stark Baking Mad: Great British Baking Shawl 2 — an homage to The Great British Baking Show. Like the show, the MKAL will rise to the occasion with a bit of camp, a recipe with each clue, and an occasional pun.

The mystery shawl pattern is worked with four skeins of sock yarn in three colors (two skeins of the MC, one skein each of CC1 and CC2), and preorders are available until November 10th when the first clue drops.

Hope and Feathers: a free shawl pattern

A moss green and dappled pink shawl.

Named for an Emily Dickinson poem, this sweet boomerang-shaped shawl uses only two skeins of sock yarn and begins with a tiny one-stitch cast on. The solid color sections make for practically mindless knitting while the slip-stitch colorwork is much easier than it looks — you only every use one strand of yarn at a time, and just slip a stitch here and there.

The pattern is on sale at 25% off on both Ravelry and Payhip with the code hope2020 through Sunday, Sept 6th, or you can get the pattern for free when you sign up for the Lyrical Knits newsletter (you’ll be sent a welcome email with download instructions once you confirm your subscription).

Bernadette’s Cardigan

A woman wearing a pink short sleeved cardigan.

Get ready for the cool, fall weather in this homage to the cute cardigans worn by the character of Bernadette in The Big Bang Theory. Bernie is a famously short, sweet, and sassy microbiologist who wore a cropped cardi over an adorable dress through most of the series. She must’ve had one in 20 different colors, and it’s easy to see why — they’re versatile enough to wear with skirts or jeans, so you may need to knit one in more than one color, too.

This top-down design is worked up in fingering weight yarn and is completely seamless. Get the pattern at 30% off on Ravelry or Payhip with the code “feelthebern” now through Sunday, Aug. 23rd.

New pattern name is a little swear-y

A silver cabled hat with a gold pompom.

A new hat pattern whose title sums up all the feels about 2020. Complaining won’t fix the pandemic, but you can give 2020 the what-for and knit a really cool hat that’s way easier than it looks (cables only every 10th row!) and is entirely reversible.

So that’s two hats for the price of one, right? And the price is even 30% off through April 28th — no code is necessary. Just add the pattern to your Ravelry cart, and the discount will be applied when you check out.
