Knit Under Your Plaidie
Robbie Burns Day just passed us two days ago, so what do you say to a post of selected knitted plaid patterns? Ah, something about the "best plaid plans of mice and men" in a stage Scottish burr? Fantastic. But let's get on with the patterns. Bear with me while I make bad Scottish jokes. My surname may be Scottish (the real one, not Swan), but I'm actually only 1/32 Scottish.
Lead on with the Macduff tartan bag, by Judy Furlong. This pattern is available for $3.00(USD).
Love this simple yet distinctive Plaid Baby Blanket, by Yana Ivey. It's a free pattern.
These are the Plaid Play socks, by Camille Chang. This pattern is available for $1.99(USD).
If you'd like to sport just a touch of plaid, the Mad About Plaid Socks by fkd designs might be a good fit. This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download.
Another pair of plaid socks. Love the offbeat colourway. Mad For Plaid socks, by Kate Atherley. This is a Knitty pattern and therefore available for free.
Here's one for the boys. The Plaid Pullover, by Bruce Weinstein. This pattern was published in Boyfriend Sweaters: 19 Designs for Him That You'll Want to Wear. Don't know why the authors of the book had to title it as though only women would be knitting these men's sweaters.
These are the perfect thing to wear when you're eating a wee bit of bannock bread by the fire. The Plaid Loafers, by Katie Startzman. This pattern was published in The Knitted Slipper Book: Slippers and House Shoes for the Entire Family.
A rather fetching Plaid Tam, by Theresa Schabes. This pattern was published in Vogue® Knitting: The Ultimate Hat Book: History * Technique * Design.
I had to include this one, even though the pattern will be at best a challenge to find. This is Plaid Coat #6077, by Spinnerin, which was originally published in Spinnerin 150, Bulky Classics, in 1961. This is knitted in mohair, and in a sharp colourway it will be quite the statement piece.
Cute little Girl's Plaid Dress, by Melissa Leapman. This pattern is available for free.
Here's a smart hat and mitten set. The Chillaxin' Plaid Hat and Mitten, by Lorilee Beltman. This pattern is available for $7.00(USD).
Love this little number. Laura’s Cardigan, by Annie Modesitt. This pattern is available for $5.50(USD).
The colours of this piece are gorgeous. The Tartan Jacket, by Teva Durham. This pattern is available for $5.50(USD).
