Makeover…

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share with you that Peartree Knitting will be getting a bit of a makeover during the next few months or so.

3d illustration of three cranes building text 'web site' over white backgroundI’m not too sure how long it will take really, as I want to refine my website a bit more (I’ve already changed it up a little bit), spruce up my patterns and learn to take better photos.

So, come on back every once and a while and check out the progress.  I hope you’ll like all the changes coming!

And a huge thank you for your on going support!

I’m excited!

Buffalo Check cup cozy…

Good morning everyone.

Well, I managed to get 1 of the 2 patterns written this week.  I guess that’s better than none! LOL!  I was really hoping to launch both at one time but that just didn’t happen.

So my “Buffalo Check Cup Cozy” pattern is now available for purchase on loveknitting.com, in my Etsy store and on Craftsy.

It’s such a fun and quick project! Perfect for your leftover yarn!

Oh! And stay tuned! Next week my pattern I designed for Paintbox Yarns will be launching!

Happy knitting!

FINALLY!!!

I can’t believe I finally have this blanket done!  It’s been a work in progress for just over a year now.

I made it for myself (something I don’t do too often) and just LOVE how it turned out.

It’s SO cushy and thick and warm! It’s a nice simple garter stitch with an I-cord edge for a slightly more finished look.

Here’s how I made it:

16 balls of King Cole Super Chunky yarn
US size 15 needles
Darning needle to weave in ends

Cast on 120 stitches
Slip the first stitch purl-wise
Knit across the row until the last stitch
Purl the last stitch
Repeat the above pattern for every row.

The finished size is approximately 55″ X 58″

Happy knitting!

Super cozy infinity scarf…

Hey there!

I’ve knit SO MANY infinity scarves for other people but never one for myself, so hearing that this week was going to get COLD again, I grabbed some yarn and knit myself this beauty!

DSCN5411

Here’s the pattern:

3 balls of King Cole Super Chunky (approx. 250 yards)
US size 13 needles

Cast on 25 stitches
Knit every row (garter stitch) until you come close to the end of your 3 balls
Cast off in pattern leaving about 12 – 15″ of yarn to sew your ends together.

Super simple and fast!

Stay warm!
