Free Pattern Friday: Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes

When I was younger, my mom taught preschool and often, the kids would sing the song "head, shoulders, knees and toes."  The song still pops into my head from time to time as it did today while looking for great Free Pattern Friday ideas.  Who knew such a fun, childhood memory would make it into my knitting day!

For the head...

I love a quick-to-stitch project, especially if I've just finished what seems like a marathon project.  This fits the bill!  The Backtrack Cap by YaYa Lovestoknit is a textured hat made with aran weight yarn with sizes from child to adult.

Yarn Suggestion: Rocking the Wool Bulky or Farmhouse Yarn Andy's Merino II

For the shoulders...

Check out the Elysis cowl pattern by Rachel Henri, a fun crochet pattern using fingering yarn.  It's a fantastic pattern for using variegated yarn.

For the knees...

Part socks, part leg warmers when worn over tights or leggings, Julie Aakjaer's Lake Town Socks have been in my queue for ages waiting for just the right yarn to crochet them.

Yarn Suggestions:  Ewetopia Lima or Mrs. Crosby Carpet Bag

For the toes...

Your feet will be feeling sweet with this textured Scatterby Socks pattern from Amy Stringer.  Great for variegated and solid yarns alike! 

Yarn Suggestions:  Ancient Arts 3 Ply Fingering/Sock or Seven Sisters Arts Meridian

Cast on and start chaining these projects this weekend with any of your Yarnbox yarns mentioned above or hit up our Overstock Shop and begin dreaming about your next WIP!
