Holiday Knitspiration: Picot Cowl

s830 2

Our picot cowl uses just one skein of Silky Merino — an incredibly soft and vibrantly colored 50-50 merino wool and silk blend.  Bordered with a sweet picot edge, this easy-to-love accessory pops against neutrals and when worked in a semi-solid colorway, blends seamlessly into any ensemble.

We used the popular colorway Piedras, pick your color and get started today! This pattern is available in print and digital download here.

Holiday Knitspiration: Vanilla Bean Cowl

s843

 

When people hold up a skein of the colorway Vanilla Bean and ask, “What does this look like worked up?” we always take them to our Vanilla Bean Cowl.  A great choice for multis and lightly variegated colorways alike, Tosh Vintage shines in this pattern, allowing it to showcase one its best qualities: bounciness.

For a limited time, this pattern is available for free with the purchase of the yarn to make it (no, you don’t have to use the color Vanilla Bean).  If you’re shopping with us online, please mention that you’d like pattern S843 in the special instructions section at checkout.

We are happy to share one of our most popular designs!  People are always asking how we achieved the stunning look that reminds some knitters of stained glass, and it’s a relatively simple method using two skeins of Rios.   It works best with a solid color and a vivid multi.  We recommend:
