Oh Canada!

So as I’m sure most of you have figured out by now, I’m a Canadian. And in case you are also on top of what day it is (I, for one, have been having trouble this week keeping track of what day it is), it is also July 1st, AKA Canada Day. ‘Tis a day of wearing red & white, waving around things with maple leaves on them, and celebrating our independence.

To celebrate Canada Day (and since this week has been so hectic that I have nothing to report from this end knitting-wise), I’ve compiled a couple Canadian-themed knitting patterns for your enjoyment.

  1. Hudson Bay Inspired Crib Blanket by Purl Soho
     For those who aren’t familiar with Hudson’s Bay, it’s essentially our Macy’s.

  2. Majestic Moose by Andi Satterlund
    Because what is Canada without a moose?

  3. Burton Bear Cowl by Heidi May
    Or a bear, really?

  4. O Canada Mitts by Vicky Taylor-Hood
    For those of a more traditional Canadiana mindset

  5. Flying North by Maria Montzka
    For those of you who’d like something a little more subtle in your Canadian pride, try these socks that mimic the shape of flying geese.

  6. 504 King West by The Knit Cafe Toronto
    Because how I could I write a post about Canada-themed patterns without an ode to Toronto?

  7.  Alberta Bound by Kate Bostwick
    Or a pattern inspired by the fields in Alberta? Oh, Alberta, how I’ll miss you.

Happy Canada Day all!
