Knit along little doggies! Get in touch with your inner cowboy/girl with these western knits. I’ve rustled up a collection of western-inspired patterns. Venture outside your territory and into the old west. Wrangle your yarn and needles. It’s time to get a move on with these fun projects. Yee Haw!
For the Homesteaders
If you’ve ever been out west, you’ll know that there are beautiful bands of orange and brown throughout the mountains. Reflect this natural color scheme in the Grand Canyon Wrap. Or if you’re more of a western prairie girl, work up this charming Little House on the Prairie Shawl. Joanna Johnson from Slate Falls Press designed this cute shawl based on Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie tales.
For the Cowgirls
For the more rough and tumble knitters, check out the Gun Smoke Cowl. It’s a great accessory with a cowboy edge. And when I think western apparel, the classic poncho definitely comes to mind. Work up your own poncho with this easy pattern. Add some stripes and textured yarn to make it your own unique piece.
A perfectly pint-sized Pincushion Cactus is a quick and sharp project that will ensure you have a little bit of the west that will never die.
