No, seriously, these socks really ARE bananas! Aren’t they the cutest things you’ve ever seen?

If you’re here it’s probably because you like quirky knits as much as I do – I have a whole pattern category dedicated to them! But when I came across These Socks Are Bananas on Ravelry their cuteness stopped me in my tracks. Bananas! Come on!

I think you could do a few adorable color combos in Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering yarn. Above is similar to the original design and uses Vanilla for the background, Citrus Pop for the banana, Saffron for the stems and Brushed Silver for the heel, toe and cuff.

Or maybe you want to go totally crazy cute and knit colorful pair of wild banana socks. Yes, you do!

What if you did a Berry background, Citrus Pop bananas, Forest Fern stems and Iris Blossom accents?

A richer color traditional sock is possibly your banana of choice. Try a Vanilla background with Saffron bananas, Forest Fern stems and Charcoal accents. Tasty!

Look at all the texture on this cowl!

Split the Distance is a knitting pattern that creates big arrows with just a change in knits or purls.

Such a cool effect.

I’ve had cables on the brain this week so this beautiful pair of socks leapt right off the page at me! Galiano Socks are designed with a gorgeous stag-horn cable down the middle of the sock to really make them memorable.

Tracie Millar designed these socks while on vacation because while their a cable pattern she says there are “a lot of cruise rows” in between the cables so you can really kick back and enjoy just knitting. While the pattern may look complicated but there’s a lot of just knits and purls on each pattern repeat.

The Galiano Socks would look fabulous in ANY color. The original looks like a nice Brushed Silver but this other Forest Fern pair has me thinking I could knit some for my husband! What do you think?

Chilly Headband + Mitts Cable Knitting Pattern

Oh, I love a good new project. The Chilly Headband + Mitts are here and they’re fabulous! Look at those amazing matching cables.

Makenzie Alvarez of Hanks and Needles designed this beautiful set using Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted merino yarn. Makenzie is known for her cable knitting patterns and she brings those skills on this headband and wrist warmer set!

I checked in with Makenzie for a little Q&A and to dig a little deeper about her passion for making cable knit projects.

Designer Interview with Makenzie Alvarez of Hanks and Needles

Heather: How did you fall in love with cable knitting?

Makenzie: For me it was love at first cable! The added element of creating the cable and watching the elegant dance of stitches crossing knitwear in a beautiful yarn brings them to life; a process I am always inspired by and will never tire of.

Heather: We can get such an amazing texture by moving the stitches around with a cable needle. Why did you choose Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted yarn for the Chilly Headband + Mitts project?

Makenzie: When it comes to designing I am always hunting for yarns that have good stitch definition and that will enhance the cable work. The beautiful twist and color palette of the Ewe Ewe yarn lines has the best of both and it is a delight to knit with!

Heather: I agree! I love the way stitches pop in Wooly Worsted. I think it’s unbeatable (but then again, it is my yarn so I might be biased.)

Heather: What’s coming next at Hanks and Needles?

Makenzie: Many new things are happening this year. I am jumping in to garment design and adding a lot more accessory patterns including one that many fans have been requesting; my Viking Gloves in Ewe So Sporty yarn from Ewe Ewe.

Heather: I can’t wait to see those new gloves! We’ll have to get together and chat again about your inspiration for that pattern when it launches. Thanks for taking few minutes to chat with me today!

Keep up with Makenzie on her website hanksandneedles.com, on her very active Instagram, and on Ravelry.

I have been holding my breath and waiting to show you these socks! Ewe Heart Socks was the first pattern I thought of when I dreamed up my new Fluffy Fingering merino yarn.

I called my friend Meaghan at The Unapologetic Knitter and said, “Will you design me socks with HEARTS all over them?” 💗 She did!

Look at all those adorable eyelet hearts! I love them so much because they match the Ewe Ewe Yarns logo and they keep the socks interesting as you knit them.

We made these socks in Fluffy Fingering and I love how the twist of this yarn really pops the stitch definition on the heart design.

You can choose any color to knit your hearts. We made our set in Berry but Red Velvet, Aquamarine or Iris Blossom would all look fabulous, too!
