Scallop Lace Hat
Designer Ruby Submarine strongly suggests blocking this hat to make sure those pretty stitches stay where they need to. Her blocking supply of choice? A soccer ball!

This isn’t a traditional knitting pattern; instead, designer canarysanctuary generously provided pattern notes for the vest seen here. If you’re into designing and customizing your knitted garments, this one’s for you!

Wear this accessory like a cowl, or unbutton it to make it a traditional scarf wrapped around your neck. Just make sure you choose the perfect buttons; they’ll do a great job of defining the style of the cowl.

Day’s Eye Hat
This hat is named for designer Kristen Hanley‘s favorite flower: the daisy. This light hat is perfect for spring days, as well as those transitions into summer and fall.

These knee-high lace socks can be worn with many different types of shoes, from flats to heels and boots. This particular pair is named for the lemon balm plant’s German name. Even thought the pattern stitch is leaves, you don’t have to stick to green yarn when you knit this.

Schieffelin Point Shawl
This half circular shawl’s lace edging is knitted after you complete the beautifully shaped body. This pattern was designed by Bluprint instructors Kate Gagnon Osborn and Courtney Kelley. If you love this design, be sure to check out their New Directions in Lace: Hats class, too.

Waffle Rib Socks
All knitters need a couple of go-to sock patterns. These waffle socks could be one of yours! The cozy waffle pattern gives you plenty of stretch and comfort. Use a lighter color yarn if you want those waffles to really stand out.
