Mini Stockings free pattern!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all are enjoying the holiday.

I've just released a free pattern! The Mini Stocking is a fun, festive and quick knit. The lovely little stockings are the perfect size to hold a gift card. They could also hold a few little candies or small gifts. Or they could be used as decorations or ornaments.

The pattern includes directions for three versions. The stocking is worked in the round from the top down. They only take a small amount of yarn, making them a great stashbuster. 

The pattern is available as a free download in my Ravelry store.

Little Mishka and Pinecone Lace Hat

Just in case you missed them, here are a few more of my recent patterns that were published through Knit Picks.

Little Mishka is an adorable and simple teddy bear designed to use the new Knit Picks yarn Fable Fur. The faux fur yarn is really unique and knits up to look just like an actual teddy bear. It's also incredibly soft! The pattern is available as a free download on the Knit Picks website.

The Pinecone Lace Hat was released as part of the Knit Picks collection Cadence: Luxe Knits. It is a beautiful lace hat and is a great way to use a skein of luxury yarn.

Two Hats in Interweave Knits Magazine





I've had patterns in two recent issues of Interweave Knits! 

The Blizzard Beanie is in the Interweave Knits Gifts 2019 issue. It is a great hat that is simple to knit, and results in a beautiful accessory. The pattern includes lots of sizes to fit anyone from a child to an adult.

The Daybreak Beanie is in the Interweave Knits Winter 2020 issue. It features a bold colorwork pattern around the main hat. The bulky yarn works up pretty quickly and makes a nice cozy hat.

Three new patterns

I had three new patterns released recently! Two are in Knit Picks pattern collections and the third is a free pattern on the Knit Picks website.

Mossy Cable Mittens

The first pattern is the Mossy Cable Mittens in Everyday Rustic: A Textured Tweed Collection. I love tweed and cables and they come together beautifully in these mittens. A lovely cable runs up the back of the mittens and comes to a neat point near the fingertips. The cable is surrounded by seed stitch for added texture.

Simple Stripe Socks

The next pattern is the Simple Stripe Socks in Simply Socks: A Collection of Wardrobe Basics. These socks are worked by alternating between two colors to form narrow stripes on the main part of the sock, with a third color used on the cuff, heel and toe. There are so many possibilities for personalizing colors with this basic pattern. I made a couple versions myself. The modeled version has stripes in white and light gray which has a more subtle effect. Using colors with more contrast would look great as well.

Stripy Spheres

The last new pattern is the Stripy Spheres which is a free download on the Knit Picks website. This is a fun and easy pattern and is a great way to use up small amounts of yarn. It is also a great project for playing around with color. They are worked in the round and stuffed before finishing. There are versions with no stripes, one, two or three stripes. Lots of options!

Facebook Pages

My design career has grown a lot in the last few years and has evolved to be mostly separate from my Etsy shop, so I have created a new Facebook page just for my design work. Those looking for knitting patterns may not be the same ones shopping for finished products. With different pages, people can choose what they are interested in hearing about.

Anyone who knits and/or is interested in my patterns and new designs can now stay updated by liking Emily Kintigh Designs on Facebook. Many of my pattern designs are accessories like mittens and hats. I also make some home decor items and of course toys.

Updates about my Etsy shop including new listings, sales, etc. can still be found on my Auntie Em's Studio Facebook page. So if you are interested in finished knitted items (mostly toys) this is the place for you.

I will continue to blog about all of my knitting projects, though there is usually more to say about my design work. Please like one or both of my Facebook pages to stay up to date. Thanks so much!
