Friday Pattern Friday: Tangier Cowl

To welcome Cascade’s new self-striping yarn Tangier to our web store, we couldn’t help but feature this free cowl pattern on this week’s Free Pattern Friday.

Since Tangier blends lightweight silk with cotton and rayon, it is the perfect go-to yarn for your Spring and Summer accessories.  This subtly striping cowl will double as a capelet during chilly evenings out.

Customer Creation: Mien’s Mobius Cowl

The cover project in Vogue’s Winter 2013/2014 issue has created a lot of buzz here at the shop and it’s no surprise why! It’s bright, cheery and incredibly fun to knit.

Since it has been difficult to come by the exact same colors used for the sample cowl, the staff has had a blast helping customers create their own. With all the dazzling array of KPM colors available, it’ll be hard to make just one!

Mien from Los Angeles dropped by to show off her Koigu Mobius Cowl, and we couldn’t help but gush.

This cowl takes 9 colors of KPM. If you need any help designing yours, feel free to drop by the shop or call us at 415-621-6642.
