Infinitude Cowl 

This Week's Inspiration & Back in Stock!

The Infinitude Cowl is one of the most versatile cowls you’ll ever meet. The possibilities are endless.  The entire cowl is knit in the round and is composed of several rows of ribbing set perpendicular to alternating rows of knits and purls. This gives the garment an appearance of both horizontal and vertical ribs and creates a luscious texture of both warmth and “scrunchability,” while maintaining an element of elegance.

Our sample is knit with just one skein of Hudson from Jill Draper.  We received our shipment late last week and squeezed every single skein coming out of the boxes!  Hudson is a spongy, 4-ply 100% Superwash Merino made just for Jill Draper Makes Stuff from sheep-to-skein right here in the USA! 240 yds


Jill Draper Twister Cowl 

New from Jill Draper!

The Twister cowl kit is an interesting pattern that is intended to showcase variegated yarns to their best effect.  The pattern incorporates planned pooling, which allows the natural wavering of the colors and resembles ikat. Simple to knit with a teensy bit of creative finishing, this would be a great project to bring to Knit Night and work on while chatting away. The finishing touches give the cowl a lot of body and allow both sides to show when worn. These are quite addictive to knit, as once you get it set up it's like a watercolor appearing row by row…

Each kit contains 2 skeins of Hudson, 1 skein of Nimbus and the pattern.


A Note from Christina, Organizer of Threads of Kindness:

Hello everyone...I'd like to invite you to join a group that is very near to my heart as I know it is for many of you.  We are working to provide hospice patients in middle Tennessee with a blanket or shawl for a little comfort at a time when they may most need it and preemie blankets and hats to many of the Nashville's Neo-Natal units.  If you think this giving opportunity may be right for you, please reach out to us.  We are fortunate to have generous yarn donations from Haus of Yarn helping us along our way and would love to share our stash with you.
