Knit Hard Banner {free knitting pattern}

If you're anything like me then you're a diehard knitter. I take my knitting with me everywhere and I find nothing more entertaining than building something new out of a piece of string. Knitters are awesome!

I made this fun wall hanging for myself to hang over my desk. It's a silly little project that can be knit in an evening or two.

Ewe Ewe Yarns Pattern #126
Designed by Heather Walpole
Finished measurements: 9½" wide; 10¾" after blocking
Yarn: Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted, 95 yards, 
    Color A: 1 skein (70 Aquamarine)
    Color B: 1 skein (25 Orange Peel)
Needles: US 8 (5 mm) knitting needles
Supplies: Darning needle to weave in ends
Gauge: 16 sts to 4" in st st after blocking.

Pattern

With Color A, cast on 40 sts. Beginning with a knit row work in stockinette stitch, knitting one row and purling one row, and follow color chart adding Color B as you come to it. Bind off. Weave in all yarn ends and frame or hang to remind you to always be knitting!

Notes: The banner uses about 90 yards of the main color and about 30 yards for the text. I used a modified Fair Isle / intarsia method for the letters by carrying the yarn across when I worked the rows and then twisted it up the outside letters' edge to carry it to move it up to the next row. I did break the contrasting yarn for the space in between the two words.

DIY: Knitted Heart Heart Garland

It's that time of year where you get to let everyone know just how much you love them. How fun is that? Here at Ewe Ewe we are always talking about how much we love our yarn, our yarn stores and our knitters. And what better way to show our love than with this adorable Ewe Ewe Heart Heart garland! I made a bunch of the little hearts out of Wooly Worsted (our berry color is just perfect for Valentine's Day!), stuffed them with poly-fil and simply threaded the tops along some fishing line. It makes a great garland, I might just keep it up all year!

I love the garland hanging over the mirror in my foyer because then it seems like I have double the hearts! Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! And, happy knitting!
