Being Sick = Free Pattern for You!

I haven’t been sick in a good long while, dear readers, but this hit me hard. The kid and I have been knocked on our butts by Norovirus (no, not Noro the yarn) courtesy of attending a child’s winter birthday party. I know this is what happens when you have a kid in your life and your kid hangs out with other kids, who have been hanging out with other kids, etc… I wish I hadn’t seen Contagion last year on DVD.

Norovirus. Trust me, you don't want this.

Norovirus. Trust me, you don’t want this.

While this is terribly inconvenient for me to be stuck home alone for a week trying to drag myself around and take care of the kid while the husband travels for work, this means a free pattern for you! I finally have some time to write it up since we’re on lockdown.


I’d like to introduce you to the Plaited Necklace, a non-knitting pattern that is perfect for Be Sweet T-Shirt yarn. All you need is a doorknob or staircase rail to anchor your 4-stranded braid onto, good light, a kitchen scale to divvy up your hanks and off you go. I made it while bingeing on bad TV as it doesn’t require a chart or knitting needles.


Head on over to Ravelry to download the free pattern here.

Also, congratulations to Emily W from Pennsylvania for winning the hank of Cascade Magnum Handpaints!

Stay healthy, readers.

  1. Oh, so sorry to hear you’ve been sick Tanis.
    My whole family was hit by a Norovirus the week before Xmas. All 5 at once and only 3 toilets in the house… not much knitting got done that week…
    Feel better soon!
