More Patterns Updated! (19th May edition)

We are pleased to announce that we've two more of our patterns up on the site once more, from our back catalogue. If you've been waiting for either Molly or Venta, wait no longer.

 Molly is a lovely hat by top hat-designer Woolly Wormhead. It was inspired by Molly Ringwald as Andie in Pretty in Pink, with her quirky and individual style of dressing and her love of the colour pink! This hat is knitted sideways on straight needles using short rows for shaping. The hat is then joined together invisibly using kitchener stitch (grafting).

With both written and charted instructions, the pattern is multi-sized with three sizes to ensure the perfect fit.

The lace panel and frilled brim hark back to the seventies and before that to mop caps of the victorian era. It is also a fabulous stash buster using only 100 grams of yarn.

Venta is a versatile neck warmer designed by Ingrid Murnane (that's me!) It was inspired by a pub discussion about the perfect scarf / neck warmer which could keep your face, neck and d├ęcolletage warm in one garment.

It uses the Roman Rib stitch pattern to create stretch and texture. Knitted flat, it fastens with 23 buttons which can be done up all the way for protection against icy winds or alternatively some buttons can be left open to create a collar, as seen in the picture. It can be worn with or without a coat, in place of a scarf and is a unisex pattern. Although fitting much like a cowl around the neck, the ribbing pattern allows it to stay in place.

You can find the pattern page for Venta by clicking here.

We'll keep you updated as to which patterns are back up, here on the blog, on the facebook page, in the ravelry group, in our twitter feed, and of course, in the newsletter (sign up at the top right of any page of knitonthenet). 

Happy knitting
