Knit up a colorful, new hat for your little one this fall!
Kids love hats made of Koigu because they're soft and warm yet not bulky.
There are so many fun colors to choose from! These make perfect gifts too (hint, hint).
You can snag the yarn here. The pattern is free with the purchase of the yarn to make it. Just mention it at checkout.
Love texture? Knit up Allison's My So Called Scarf!
Allison published this pattern back in 2002 and there are currently over 6000 projects made in Ravelry!
The pattern calls for 215 yards of worsted weight yarn. The original scarf shown above was done using Manos del Uruguay in colorway Wildflower.
Oh - the possibilities!
Malabrigo Worsted is always a joy to work with and is beautiful!
It's beautiful in Rios too.
Variegated yarn not your thing? The stitch pattern looks wonderful in a solid such as Lamb's Pride.
You can even use a chunky yarn. Here's it knit up using Rasta.

A few weeks ago we released the pattern for the Wrapped in Lux shawl, but that was just the beginning of Allison's obsession with Lace Lux. Today we have another exciting pattern to share with you guys. Introducing the Three Color Cowl!
Using three colors of Lace Lux held doubled throughout, this glimmering cowl makes quite a statement despite being so easy to knit.
We did ours in a combination of purple and taupe, but you can colorblock with any variety of colors. Maybe two grays and a pop color? Three shades of pink? An ombre of blues? It's up to you!
Enjoy the free pattern below and be sure to check out our wide selection of Lace Lux to find the color scheme that works best for you. Happy knitting!
