Easy free sock pattern

Last week, in my pledge to use up the yarn stash, I started knitting more socks using a favorite sock pattern and US 4 (3.5mm) dpns or two circulars, whatever is your pleasure. I use the smaller stitch count of 64 sts. to knit these.

Brain hat patterns for Science March

Knitters and crocheters are getting ready for another march, and like the Women's March, there is a hat to knit or crochet. The Science March is to be held on Earth Day in Washington, DC, April 22, 2017.

The March for Science celebrates "science not silence" and will be duplicated in over 30 cities across the nation and around the world. A diverse gathering of scientists and science enthusiasts: students, teachers, families, and friends, all with a passion for discovery, opinion, and curiosity will march and then hold a teach-in on the National Mall. Studio Knits has prepared several videos with brain hat patterns for the base hat and i-cord brains tacked on the outside. And a brain hat to crochet as well.

Garter Rib baby blanket

Adam's Rib by Buffoo
Baby blankets make wonderful gifts. The "garter rib" baby blanket is a free pattern posted by Orange Flower Yarn. This one in the photo is called "Adam's Rib" and gorgeous, knit with five skeins of Sublime merino wool in DK weight on a US 6 (4mm) needle.

Looks like a simple pattern and television (football) worthy. So pick up some yarn for the Super Bowl this weekend. Knitnscribble has posted several easy blanket patterns to crochet or knit.
