Car Cap   I used size 6 needles, DK yarn, 72 stitches. Started decreasing at 6”.  Add a charcoal stripe for the road and various car and truck buttons.

 

I-Cord Necklace Make an I-cord to your desired length.  Half-hitch it onto a donut shaped bead and knot the ends.  A donut bead looks like this... Round Donut Beads

 

Thorpe Ear-flap Hat

Ravelry: Thorpe by Kirsten Kapur free pattern on Ravelry.

Lace Purse – I used the lace sample from Amy's class, folded it like an envelope, add a button & you have a small purse.

Cherry Scarf  You can see it has several split ribbed portions to draw the scarf through. I made my scarf all off-white except for about 5 split ribs that I knit in various colors.

There are tons of patterns (free or for sale) on Ravelry or search your favorite free patterns site.
