The Patterns in Knit & Crochet Club for March

Knit Pattern

Hannah Thiessen's Skyscraper Toque is a beautiful colorwork hat that calls to mind the columns of modern architecture. Stroll through the city with this hat that captures the visual interest of city grids created through grid-style colorwork, and stop to take in the sunset while you stay warm in style.

Crochet Pattern

Lori Harrison / Aklori Designs brings us the stunning Sunset in the City scarf made with Tunisian crochet. The center, representing the sun, is worked first, followed by each side. The mini-skeins of the gradient pack fade together to mimic the setting sun, creating a design perfect for both seasoned Tunisian crocheters and those new to the craft.

The Patterns in Sock Knit & Crochet Club

Knit Pattern

Cairo Romaguera / CairoDesigns created the Enveloped Socks for a quick, feel-good project that has enough detail to keep you from getting bored while knitting. The geometric symmetry, reminiscent of an envelope, lends visual interest to this cozy and quick-to-knit pair of socks.

Crochet Pattern

Squishy cables abound in the Cityside Cables design from Claire Olivia Golden / Once Upon A Yarn. Post stitches form twisting cables over a background of half-double crochet that's perfect for advanced crocheters and ambitious beginners alike. The leg length can be adjusted to your liking, whether it's an ankle sock or a cozy long cuff.
