FREE PATTERN: Heartfelt Gaiter/Heartless Gaiter

Friday, February 12th, 2010

If you’re looking for a last-minute Valentine to knit, try my new pattern on Craft! It’s a super bulky cabled gaiter that knits up in about 2 1/2 hours if you’re a confident cable knitter. The heart is nice and subtle, or you can knit the heartless version. The gray one used just one skein […]
