New pattern, new gift, and ALL THE LINKS: Studio Notes #48
By Studio Miranda  • Issue #48 • View online
Dear knitters, I hope you’re sitting comfortably, because this is really a bumper issue! I’ve got a couple of new things to show you, a huge collection of links to feast on, and (as is traditional at this time of year) a little present for you.
It’s something a bit different this year: instead of a free pattern, I’m gifting you an e-book of all my published tutorials. It will keep growing, slowly, as new patterns include more techniques. You’ll find it in the VIP lounge (with password thx4reading).
And a quick housekeeping note: you know my work life has changed dramatically over the course of this year, and this newsletter has changed accordingly from a fortnightly bulletin to roughly once a month. Monthly seems to work out but I like a more regular schedule, so from January, look for me in your inbox on the second Thursday of every month.

Introducing the Frail scarf
Frail* uses 100g of each of two exquisite Eden Cottage Yarns to create an ethereal scarf, with leaves of varying sizes strewn along a brioche pathway. The leaves protrude on three sides, creating pleasing irregularity. It’s a fairly challenging knit (you have to pay attention!) but very rewarding. As ever, my readers get the best deal, with 40% off using the code FRAILREVUE. And! Victoria has a special offer for you too: the pattern includes a code for 15% off any two or more skeins of fingering or 4-ply yarn. You can see all the gorgeous possibilities here.
* I read on Twitter that “frail” as a noun refers to a leaf skeleton. Isn’t that too perfect? Sadly it is literally too perfect, as I can’t find any evidence of this usage. Couldn’t resist using the name anyway.
Textile and fashion reads
Little sewing tip: if you have Gutermann sewing thread, go pick up a reel right now and pull out the bottom. Yes, just tug out the plastic bottom part. Look at that! There’s a hidden compartment for needles! WHO KNEW!
And now on to the links.
Other reads
Buckle up, I have a lot of links here and they’re not connected by any particular theme – in fact a number of them don’t really fall under the remit of this newsletter (that would be slow fashion, creativity and certain aspects of productivity, basically). But I found them all compelling enough to want to share with you, so indulge me.
Stuff to make the world better
A new old fave
You may have already seen this, but just in case: I’ve re-released the very popular Elfbaby hat with a German translation – and a new border pattern! This cap has always had three border options, but one of them wasn’t really as elastic as a hat brim needs to be. So I adapted it to combine the twisted rib of the most popular border with the lace that made it an extra pretty, girly choice. I’m looking forward to seeing this border popping up on FOs.
Happy holidays, and happy knitting – I’ll see you in the new year!
