Finally! It's cold enough to wear and knit all our favorite bulky yarns. Here is a new one from Noro, Cyochin. Cyochin is a wool/silk/mohair blend that self-stripes in muted colors. We supersized the Age of Brass and Steam to make this ultra-cozy shawl. Using US 11 and 15 needles you will have this one finished in no time at all!
Offhand Lace is a recipe more than a pattern, although you can follow it exactly. We used two skeins of Sweet Georgia Chunky for an oversized effect. The easy lace design is good for beginners!
Here you go, Outlander Fans! The Outlander Cowl is incredibly warm and super fast to make. We knit ours holding one strand of Mirasol Ushya with Ushya Suya for a subtle color shift. Both of these super bulky merino yarns are crazy soft and cuddly. The cowl is made on US 50 needles! You can make one in an evening, so it's a perfect for all your last minute gift needs!
