Ziggity Pop! Cowl

Ziggity Pop! Is a fun way to use up those precious handspun samples, leftovers from other projects and other bits of yarn that you just can’t part with but don’t have enough of for a full project. The cowl begins with a simple Garter Stitch section until the first color change, then the fun really begins. The Ziggs Stitch Pattern changes direction with each new yarn addition so you’ll have a different look to your cowl each time you make it. It finishes with another band of Garter Stitch before the bind off. Instructions are included for a more traditional, weaving-in-all-the-ends striping method as well as a more random, Magic Ball method.

Snow Spell Scarf

The Snow Spell Scarf: Winter can be a time of beauty, magic and temperatures so cold you never want to leave your knitting chair. With the Snow Spell Scarf on your needles, you'll have plenty to work on during the frigid Winter months (and something warm to snuggle into when you do have to leave the house eventually). It features an addictive, but simple lace pattern worked between I-Cord edges. Larger needles with a worsted weight, slightly fuzzy yarn means that this pattern also works up really fast. (Perfect for gifting or blizzard knitting!)
