Wickaninnish pullover knitting pattern by Holli YeohThe Man in Your Life

Defy the sweater curse and knit up this cozy sweater. Wickaninnish is perfect for sitting around the aprés ski fire or going for long walks in the woods. The open neckline is comfortable on a freshly shaven neck and won’t catch on stubble at the end of the day.

 

 

 

 

Holli Yeoh | Gumdrops MittensYour Tween or Teenager

Gumdrops Mittens are sure to please. Use brightly contrasting colours or school team colours or a favourite colour in different shades. This is a great remnant and stash buster project.

 

 

 

Holli Yeoh | OnomatopoeiaYour Superhero-Obsessed Child

Encourage imaginary play and knit Onomatopoeia for your Super Kid. Faux double sleeves, stripes and intarsia make for an interesting knit.

 

 

 

 

 

Holli Yeoh | Avery Big KidYour School-Aged Son

Avery is a very popular baby/child pattern and Avery Big Kid is sized up for the mature elementary student in your household. Choose a self-patterning yarn in his favourite colours and coordinate with a sophisticated solid for a sweater worthy of the family photo on the big day.

 

 

 

 

Holli Yeoh | Beaded BeautyThe Teacher’s Gift

Beaded Beauty is a lovely confection of kid silk laceweight and beads. Don’t let knitting with beads scare you. I have a trick for simplifying it and keeping it manageable right in the pattern.

 

 

 

Guess Who? gloves knitting pattern for kids and adults designed by Holli YeohYour Sister

Guess Who? gloves are a great fitting glove. Try them on as you go (you and your sister probably have similar sized hands). The thumb gusset looks like a life line on the palm.

 

 

 

 

 

Tip Toe Up socks knitting pattern for babies, kids and adults designed by Holli YeohYour Brother

Grab a skein of sock yarn from your stash plus a remnant of a coordinating colour and make these toe up socks. Tip Toe Up even has replaceable heels and toes. Tell your brother that if he plays his cards right, you’ll repair his socks too.

 

 

Holli Yeoh | Woven Knuckles glovesYour Best Friend

Keep her hands and heart warm with Woven Knuckles. The entrelac band across the knuckles makes them extra special.

 

 

 

Holli Yeoh | RubyYour Grandchild

Wrap them in hand-knitted love with this cozy hoodie. Ruby calls for self-patterning yarn but you could also use hand-painted yarn or two coordinating solid colours.

 

 

 

 

 

Annie's Mittens knitting pattern for babies, kids and adults designed by Holli YeohYour Nieces and Nephews

Annie’s Mittens are a great stash busting project. They call for two strands of sock yarn held together, but you could also use worsted weight yarn. They are a breeze to knit up and soon you’ll have enough for the whole gang.
