Beach Horizons Knit Shawl
By Red Heart

I've personally worked with Red Heart's It's a Wrap Sprinkles yarn, and not only is it a unique experience to knit with multiple un-twisted strands, but it makes a surprisingly beautiful piece. That's why this shawl pattern is so special; the slow fade and dappling in colors over a beautiful lace backdrop is just a bonus. The best part? It's knit in just one skein!

Rathnelly Knit Cardigan
By Katherine Poole-Fournier for Patons

Everyone needs a long, slouchy cardigan in their wardrobe. It's an indisputible fact. We love this one because it's in a nice and neutral color, so it will go with just about any outfit, and it's perfect for layering for extra warmth in the winter and for chasing away the A/C chill in the summer. Basically, it's the do-it-all cardigan, and that's why we're so excited to be featuring it for the AllFreeKnitting birthday celebration.

Birthday Cake Infinity Scarf
By Kristi Levy from AllFreeKnitting

Happy Birthday, AllFreeKnitting! To cap off our celebration, I baked a zero-calorie cake for everyone to try. With layers of variegated yarn "icing" sandwiched with white lace "cake," this infinity scarf is a delectable treat. As the weather warms and accessories are harder to wear, I wanted to design something breezy that you can easily slip on and off to compliment your outfit. Also, I've been craving cake for weeks.
