Diamond Shawl


April’s birthstone is the stunning diamond. Diamonds can be a knitter’s best friend, too! Diamond motifs large and small sprinkle this rectangular wrap. Plant fibers keep this project suitable for warmer months, and a metallic thread woven through the yarn gives it just the right special sparkle.

Afternoon Coffee Cardigan


Get ready to snuggle up with a good book and relax in this cozy, easy-to-wear cardigan. Though there are a lot of cables in this cardigan, it goes quicker than you’d think in a bulky yarn. Pockets and a fold-over collar lends a casual feel to a staple sweater.

Woodland Bunny


Bunny can be seen gallivanting through the woods with her pal, Fox. Bunnies get cold sometimes, so it’s extra important to knit her a hat.

Change of Lace Shawl


Twisted stitches, cables, and lace make this an interesting knit, while bulky yarn keeps the project relatively quick. Wear it as a shawl, belted as a faux-cardigan, or numerous other ways.
