Soft and cozy beyond measure! Knit with Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light (100% merino) and Filatura di Crosa Superior (70% Cashmere / 30% Silk), our Split Personality scarf is worked as a simple tube from end to end beginning and ending with 2×2 ribbing. The combination of Tosh Light and Superior and the use of larger needles makes this incredibly light and plush and, because it’s knit in the round, there’s no “wrong” side!

With more than 72 colours of Tosh Light in stock along with a full range of Superior, at least half the fun will be in creating your own split personality combo.

Simple Hemp Tote

simple_toteBy Melissa Clulow / Espace Tricot

A great summer tote knit with Hemp for Knitting’s allHemp6LUX (100% Hemp) and finished with a pair of rolled leather handles from Greyson E. As the name implies, this is a super easy project that knits up in no time. It’s worked as a long rectangle with angled corners, folded in half and seamed to finish. Classic in style, the combination of brown, natural, and black makes this a great casual bag that will work with most outfits (and shoes!). Still, we can see this knit in a variety of colour combinations making the most of the beautiful shades available in allHemp6LUX and the various colours of Grayson E. handles (e.g. Brown, Amber, Buckskin, Olive, Red, Black).

Ombre Tank

Knit with Habu Textiles Tsumugi Silk (100% silk) our Ombre Tank is perfect for hot summer days. If you can’t wait, layer it with a tee and you’re set for spring! We used the same technique as the Ombre cowl to achieve the gradation of colours. The fabric is crisp yet soft and supple at the same time and the A-line shaping is very flattering on most body types. Lower body is knit in the round and front and back neckline are kept the same – an easy knit with minimal finishing work.

    I’ve made the Pip scarf and it’s a great last minute gift idea. It knits up so quickly and looks so gorgeous, you won’t want to give it away… oh well, then you’ll knit one for the most important person : YOU. And by the way, this yarn is soft and cushy, a real delight to wear.

  2. Thank you so much for the free patterns. I am going to start the Firefly Tunic just as soon as I finish my Boxy!

  3. Jocelyne Denault

    I was “thinking” about going to your store but now I “have” to go.

  4. Tori

    I’m working on the chevron baby blanket right now. It’s suprisingly simple. However your pattern is incorrect/has 2 typos.

    Firstly, where it says “repeat until last 13 sts”, the instructions thereafter take 14 sts ( K1, YO, K9, K2tog, K1 = 1 + 1 + 9 + 2 + 1 = 14).

    Secondly, you must cast on 131 sts not 121. Otherwise, “until the last 14 sts” skips the YO on the last “peak” in the pattern and you end up decreasing by 1 st every other row on that side.

    • espacetricot – Author

      Hi Tori – thanks for your message. We’ve had lots of folks make the blanket with no problem casting on 121 stitches. Note that a YO creates a stitch but does not use an existing stitch to do so. That’s why only 13 stitches are required before beginning the last section… Please let me know if this helps clarify or if you still have trouble. ;-)

      • Tori

        Ah, I was taking YO to mean move-yarn-over-and-knit-one. I’m not sure where/if I learned it that way… I consider myself an intermediate knitter… Oh well, it’s pretty as it is now! I really should have looked it up, haha. Thanks for the clarification!

        This is probably also Lizanda’s problem. If I don’t add in that K1 for every yarn over I would have exactly 10 more sts to work with so 121 would have worked out perfectly.

  5. Lizanda

    Good morning! I started knitting the Chevron blanket, but my stitches are not working out in row 1 already! I repeated the pattern as instructed, but I have either more or less that 13 stitches left? What am I doing wrong? It is 121 to cast on right? Please help, would love to knit it!

    • espacetricot – Author

      Hi Lizanda – it’s definitely 121 to cast on. I’m not sure what may be happening – did you confirm that you are completing the SSK and mitered decreases correctly?

      ssk = slip, slip, knit. Slip two stitches
      separately as if to knit, then place the
      left needle into the fronts of these two
      stitches and knit them together

      md = mitered decrease (slip 2 sts tog
      as if to k2tog, k1, pass the 2 slipped
      sts over.

  6. Split Personality Scarf: I read this to mean that you could select Madeleine Tosh OR Filatura di Crossa yarn. Went to Purl Soho in Manhattan and bought the Madeleine Tosh (it’s the only one they had). Now I’m re-reading the directions and it appears that I need Both Is this correct? Thanks for clearing this up!

    • espacetricot – Author

      Yes, you definitely need both – but you could substitute Rowan Kidsilk Haze or Shibui Silk Cloud for the Superior if you have difficulty locating it. Good luck! We’re also happy to ship if you would do want to use the Superior.

    I just landed in your blog and I congratulate you for your job!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi, I’m really sorry I haven’t seen your patterns before! You have such lovely pieces of work and your patterns seem VERY easy to follow. I came for the chevron blanket and now found a few other things to make. Thank you very much for sharing!

  9. Skye

    Hi! I cannot wait to make the Aise shawl as a gift for all my bridesmaid! I was wondering how the final fabric on the Aise shawl feels with the Jade Sapphire Sylph yarn? The hank isn’t very soft and a lot of the girls will be wearing strapless dresses so just curious if it’s soft and warm? Is there any other yarn you’d recommend substituting for the Sylph? Thank you!! Skye

    The sharing of these very classy patterns is overwhelming. Everything is so lovely. Thank you for your generosity. Mary Uhl

  11. I just finished the baby chevron blanket, very easy pattern and quick. On to another chevron baby blanket. Great patterns…thank you for sharing.

  12. […] Last year, when I was pregnant, I picked up knitting and crocheting again. It’s what I do. I pick up a million things, but never see them through. But there is something therapeutic about sitting down at the end of the day and unwinding by working row after row after row. I wanted our little monster to have a small blanket she could take anywhere. And then I found a pretty chevron pattern by Espace Tricot. […]
