The perfect big sister ticks all the boxes

Always wished I had had a popular big could have been... This big sister is a knitting pattern for one very trendy, long open cardigan sweater with a cute little notched collar. It's another perfect companion, published this month, and very popular with almost 3,000 likes on Ravelry. If you prefer a belted cardi version, add some loops and a belt and voila! an equally stylish wrap sweater complete with pockets.

One skein Reyna - a shawl for all occasions

Reyna by MeenaWeena
The "Reyna" shawl knitting pattern was designed to finish with one skein of sock or fingering yarn, specifically a variegated yarn. But knit this large triangle in black or glitter yarn and voila! an evening shawl for the whole year through and a real option for Mother's Day gifts, birthdays, etc.

It's an easy, free pattern, one you'll want to download now; patterns don't always remain gratis, as the Holden Shawlette, which is now available for purchase but also includes three different sizes.
