Ravelry Faves – part 1

After starting my ‘Knitwear Faves’ series, I’ve been inspired to branch out into a new series exclusively on my ‘Ravelry Faves’. I thought I’d share my stash of ‘to knit’ projects, because let’s face it, after four years of full-on knitting I’ve developed quite the list – on an epic scale! Each month, I’ll run through a selection of both free and paid for projects I have on my Ravelry ‘Favourites’ page, starting with these five absolute beauties for this installment.

Gaptastic Cowl – Jen Geigley

GAP-tastic cowl Jen Geigley - Shortrounds Knitwear

This was the first ever project to be saved to my ever-growing Ravelry favourites. It was also one of the first things I ever made. And I made it in completely the wrong gauge!! Oh well, you live and learn.

Textured Shawl – Orlane DesignsTextured shawl knitting pattern - Shortrounds Knitwear

This was one of the first lace-knit shawl patterns to grace my favourites and truth be told, I’d completely forgotten about it. The soft purple pink shade, and delicate patterning are making me wonder why I forgot about this in the first place! But it’s back on my radar now 🙂

Plain and simple pullover – Veera Välimäki

I’ve yet to make a sleeveless pullover, but this will be the first one I knit. I love the button detail and folded down neck detail, and this would be great for layering up in the Autumn.

Super Soft Merino Snowflake Scarf – The Purl Bee

This offering from The Purl Bee displays their own merino yarn at its best! Would love to convert this amazing Rosette stitch to a jumper pattern too….

Kimono – Jo Storie

This lovely Kimono is by one of my favourite knitwear designers, Jo Storie. Who doesn’t love a bit of Herringbone stitch?!


I hope I’ve inspired a couple of new projects by sharing these. Look out down the line for more of my Ravelry favourites – there are certainly plenty for me to choose from!
