Leaf Peeping Cowl¬†ūüćĀūüćāūüćĀ

The sweetest little pattern just popped up over on Ravelry and it's perfect for all you fall lovers! The Leaf Peeping cowl pairs Spincycle's Dyed in the Wool with Spincycle's Wilder. Dyed in the Wool has shifts in color as well as value so as you knit through the skeins, your leaves will look slightly different, which really showcases the wonder of Dyed in the Wool!

The cowl itself is knit in the round with a provisional cast on, which allows you to customize the overall length. Once you're satisfied with the size, you'll Kitchener the two ends together, forming the loop.

We've got loads of color options in stock - these are just a few of our favorites. Shop Dyed in the Wool HERE and Wilder HERE. You'll need two skeins of DITW and four skeins of Wilder.

Looking for a more budget-friendly background color? Check out Laines du Nord Eco Baby. It's available HERE; you'll need four skeins.

New Month = New Monthly Make!

For September's make, Shayron's got us all working on the Trellis Scarf/Wrap, featuring the sweetest little smocked stitch pattern. Trellis uses light worsted weight yarn, worked on US7 needles and features an eight-row pattern repeat that allows you to customize its length. We'll be using Ultra Alpaca from Berroco for ours; we absolutely adore the heathered colorways of Ultra Alpaca...and just imagine sipping on a cup of tea while wearing your wrap in the cooler months ahead.

Shop Berroco Ultra Alpaca HERE! Three skeins are required for the scarf, five for the wrap.Monthly Makes are archived HERE!
