As we sink into the dog days of summer it’s time to think about little projects that you can work on that won’t fill your lap with yarn. The Jazerant Set by Emma Welford is the perfect end of summer project. Knit in the gorgeous Valley Yarns Northfield hand dyed by Malabrigo these two small pieces have lots of great details to keep your knitting interesting without being daunting. Non-symmetrical ribbing frames gorgeous winding cables which hide winking little beads! What’s not to love?!

Emma has worked at WEBS for several years and we’re so happy to see her designing career really starting to take off, with designs published by Valley Yarns as well as Universal Yarns, Holla Knits, Knitscene, special issues of Interweave, and her own self published patterns. For working with the beads in this pattern, which are optional, she offers two working solutions, “Beads are placed as you work on purl stitches. Place a bead on a stitch by threading the bead on to a steel crochet hook, then use the hook to draw the stitch through the bead. Alternately, slip the stitch on to a thin, flexible piece of wire, bend the ends of the wire together so it forms a long needle. Thread the bead on to the needle and slip it down on to the stitch. Purl the beaded stitch.”

Which color of the Northfield hand dyed by Malabrigo would you choose? (I’m leaning towards the Primavera!)
