Simple and sweet, the Extranilla Socks by The Unapologetic Knitter are perfect for TV knitting! Extranilla are the type of socks you can keep in your bag and work on them when you just want to knit without having to worry about a pattern. They’re great for a beginner or a more experienced knitter!

Meaghan designed My Favorite Vanilla Socks that use one color of yarn but Extranilla adds that extra pop of color at the cuff, heel and toe to really bring them to life. My kinda socks! I love a good pop of color.

Our new Fluffy Fingering merino yarn would work perfectly with these socks and you can put together some really fun color combinations. What if you did Berry socks with Citrus Pop accents? Or maybe Aquamarine socks with Red Velvet touches. What do you think?

Socks on Saturday: YinYang Kitty Ankle Socks

Welcome to our new blog feature, Socks on Saturday! Since Ewe Ewe Yarns now has Fluffy Fingering in the merino yarn lineup we can make all the wonderful socks you can imagine. Yay!

Each Socks on Saturday will highlight a sock pattern that you can use to knit yourself fa pair of socks with Fluffy Fingering yarn. Today is a pair I’ve been wanting to make for a long time: YinYang Kitty!

The YinYang Kitty Ankle Socks were designer Geena Garcia’s first try at knitting pattern design and I think she nailed it! These crazy cute socks are two-toned kitties that can be made in a Yin and Yang style with contrasting colors. I love how they’re quick ankle socks, too.

I think we could knit these socks just as shown and they’d be perfect. Try Fluffy Fingering in Charcoal and Brushed Silver with a little pop of Red Velvet for the kitty’s nose.

I think the color possiblities are endless! You could do Vanilla and Charcoal for a more obvious YinYang effect. Or what if you start thinking of actual cat coat colors. A cute tabby cat came to my mind first!

Use Saffron and Wheat for the kitties and then add the cutest pink nose with Berry Fluffy Fingering. So fun!

New! Cardinal Cowl FREE Knitting Pattern

Bright red paired with black always makes me think of a happy little cardinal hopping around on a snowy white lawn looking for rich red holly berries and that's why I named this the Cardinal Cowl. This lovely infinity scarf uses 2 balls of Baa Baa Bulky merino yarn and knits up into a soft and generous piece. 

You can wrap this scarf in a variety of ways to show more or less of one color depending on your outfit or jacket.

The Cardinal Cowl uses a fun-to-knit stitch pattern that gives the design a lot of dimension. You'll love to knit it! Download the pattern at the link below and see Baa Baa Bulky yarn here.

Notes: 

This blanket is worked in garter stitch which is just knit. Every two rows of garter stitch creates one “garter ridge”. The pattern suggests working 17 garter ridges for each color but due to slight variations in gauge you may need to work less or could work more ridges with the same amount of yarn. It takes about 3x the length of a row to complete it.

To keep the solid stripes always change color at the same edge of the blanket for each section.
