Piece of Cake Cowl

Piece of Cake Cowl

Inspired by the way the colors danced together on the skein, this cowl was designed to take advantage of the color transitions of the Freia line and uses every last bit of yarn on the skein. The pattern itself is reminiscent of the latticework and detail of a wedding cake as it moves from layer to layer. Knit in the round, this cowl will stand up and be noticed as it graces the neck of the person lucky enough to wear it.

Knit this v-neck sweater from the bottom up with a panel of cable stitches for a look that’s a blast from the past. The saddle shoulders above half-length stockinette sleeves are reminiscent of oversized and comfy vintage sweaters. Body and sleeves are joined to a raglan construction so that only few stitches below the arms have to be seamed. This bright and fun sweater works well with a skirt or your favorite pair of jeans.

Agave Cardigan

There is something so perfect about cozying up in a cabled and textured cardigan. That was my inspiration for this—to make something blissfully cozy and warm. The narrow front cables mimic the wide central back cable panel for some unification, and the rest is knit in a cozy, textured Moss stitch.
