Pirate Fest 2015 starts tonight on Tybee Island me mateys! Get ready to see fun costumes and fierce pirate makeup all over Savannah! Here are some patterns - and resources - to get you in the mood for some knitted booty!
(Booty means "treasure" in Pirate speak - just so there's no misunderstandings. Don't speak Pirate? No problem!
The library has a free language learning program which includes 'Pirate' as one of over 70 languages offered!).
Babies are so fun to dress up! Check out these knitted baby pirate booties. So adorable. Would be super soft and cozy in our Kettle Steps Good For Ewe yarn, which we have in stock in several colors.
One skein would make up some booties and even a beanie to match, matey! Pattern is by Naomi Parkhurst on Ravelry.
Aaargh! Speaking of beanies, this skull cap designed by Tommy Clark is also found on Ravelry.
A great excuse to try fair isle knitting, this beanie can be worn year-round and knit in any combination of colors. Our Cascade and Plymouth Yarn collections are ideal for this project.
For our sock knitters, here is a traditional pirate sock pattern even Captain Hook would love!
Come by the shop and ask Nel which yarns she would recommend. These may come in handy for Halloween as well.
This pattern is also available on Ravelry, orignally published in the book Not Your Mama's Knitting: The Cool and Creative Way to Pick Up Sticks
