Beautiful Projects – Fast knits

Anyone else feeling chilly?! I will forever be mystified how as knitters, we constantly knit away and create lovely cosy things, but when the weather gets cooler can never find anything suitable to ward off the wind. Or maybe that’s just me? Anyway, I’m setting the gift knitting to the side this week to knit some quick, chunky projects to warm me up, and here is the inspiration in the form of your lovely knitting!

From way back in Whimsical Little Knits 1, the Icing Swirl Hat has always been a favourite with knitters. It’s perfect mindless knitting, with a little bit of interest in the lace increases, and before you know it you’ve made a hat! I love this version by ClaraLinnea.

If you need a new quick, but addictive pattern then Not-so-tiny Slippers might just be it. I’ve seen some knitters on Ravelry make over 30 pairs and I managed a pair in an evening myself last year! Here is just one of Twinkerbell’s several slipper projects, so lovely. 

The perfect design for a cold wind! This is taniaho‘s Suloinen, from last year’s Knitworthy 2 collection.

Another sweet Icing Swirl Hat, though saltwaterrose has added some ribbing to the brim of her version. (The hat is knit from the icord top down, so this is a great change that can be added at the last minute, if you find you have some extra yarn.)

I love this photo of ruddersathome‘s Sulionen, which shows how well the cowl sits thanks to the subtle shaping. Another reason why I tend to wear mine indoors a lot!
