Mistake rib neckwarmer free pattern

I needed a Christmas gift for my honey's mother, and I thought a smart-looking short scarf like the Mistake Rib Neck Warmer pattern designed by StitchyMama would be just right.

This was my first time working in mistake rib, and I found that I really love the extra-soft, extra-stretchy properties of the stitch. StitchyMama's patter was very easy to follow, and the project was quick to finish.

Now I plan to make a vest for myself using mistake rib. :-)

SpongeBob child's hat free pattern

A friend of mine is going through a rough patch financially this Christmas season, and since her grandson loves SpongeBob, I went looking for a free pattern to make him a nice warm hat that looks like his favorite character.

I found a really great looking design: SpongeHat by Raveler Ashley Phelps.
