The Any Season, Any Reason Cowl is knitted in the round in a simple slip-stitch pattern. Fold it in half for a double-thick cowl, or scrunch it down, this pattern texture highlights the yarn you’ve chosen. The pattern is written for three weights: Silk Blend (DK), Maxima (Worsted), and Franca (superbulky)! Bonus, this pattern is FREE! The photographed samples on the mannequins, from left to right:
- Silk Blend, 2 sk each of Surf (MC) and Mumbai (CC)
- Maxima, 1 sk each of Concord (MC) and Ibiza (CC)
- Franca, 1 sk each of Azalea (MC) and Party (CC)
The Serpentina Crochet Basket by Sarah Parker is simple, fun to make, and easy to adjust the size to fit your needs. Perfect for a yarn bowl, catch-all for your notions, pop a plant in it, stash your tea bags - you name it! Additional embellishments, like a tassel or patch, allow you to truly customize and make this a one-of-a-kind gift. One skein of Serpentina will work up one basket.
Sarah Parker is also the designer of the Gardengate Shawl intended for a skein of Fino and a Mini-Skein bundle. There is sure to be a color pairing to suit your mood. Shown above left is Ivory Letter Opener with a Lydia set, and on the right, Mourning with a set of Sybil.
Stephanie Steinhaus published the Tri Color Super Scarf pattern on Ravelry as a free download. Three new colors of Franca are used in this textural knit: Wellies, Butterscotch, and Azalea. One skein of each color will provide enough yardage for two scarves!
