Burst Your Bobble Cowl

small-28

Get cozy in a dramatic way with this warm, bulky cowl. The structure of this stunning, yet simple pattern should get you noticed in the best way possible. This fluffy felt yarn was my most delighted choice for the big bobble motive to take the bobbles to extremes. This cowl can be knitted bottom up in rounds or in rows and sewn together in the end. The pattern offers both ways, so you can choose the way you prefer it the most.

Café Cowl Set

The first design in this set of coordinating cowls features a simple yet elegant lace pattern with a picot bind off. For the second, the composition includes easy, angular twisted stitches for added interest. The cowls make excellent gifts and are quick to knit since both can be made from just a single 100-gram skein of worsted weight yarn.

Stoughton Coffee Bean Scarf

small-95

What we today call the coffee break originated in Stoughton, WI in the late 19th century with the wives of Norwegian immigrants. The stripes (or color breaks) of this scarf represent the breaks from work normally associated with the term coffee break.  And the unevenness of the stripes represents the difference in the way coffee breaks are taken from company to company and office to office. Unroasted coffee beans are green in color, which was the inspiration for the yarn chosen for some of the stripes. Who knew knitting could teach us so many fun facts?

Auroral Scarf

ILK-resize-125

This scarf was inspired by the simple beauty of the movement of the lights in the sky caused by the random collisions of particles from the sun with the earth’s atmosphere. Throws of a die were used to recreate this random effect in the design of this scarf.
