FREE PATTERN: Heartfelt Gaiter/Heartless Gaiter

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 of Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky & the red was just multiple strands of stash odds & ends to get gauge. Except for one row on the heart, you’re only cabling one stitch at a time, so I didn’t even use a cable needle.

I’m really happy with these cables! There was much dicking around getting them just how I wanted, and I’m eager to use them again. Maybe I’ll write up some socks!

The best part is that since this was for work, I got in some loophole knitting! (I’m only knitting WIP until they’re all done, and my WIP progress has been tedious since I frogged the better part of my Noro Silk Garden raglan).
