Fabulous Fingerless Mitts

designed by Carol Ullmann

These fingerless mitts, knit up in a sumptuous silk yarn, are a good project for a brand new knitter — or a fast, fun knit for the more experienced. They make a quick and beautiful gift… after you make yourself a pair!

Origami Hat

designed by Riin Gill

This is a super easy hat, knit entirely in the round with no increasing or decreasing.

Instructions are given to help you make the hat to fit you based on your measurements and gauge. A reference chart is included so you can make the hat for someone you can’t measure, either because they’re not nearby or you want to surprise them (stealth knitting!) I include the actual numbers I used to make my adult medium hat.

Yarn: American Worsted

Skills: basic knitting skills (casting on, knit and purl stitch, basic increases and decreases, binding off), knitting in the round

Spiral Scrunch Cowl

designed by Riin Gill

This is a super easy pattern written specifically for this yarn. Gauge is given before and after blocking, with notes on working with inelastic vs. elastic yarns (e.g., silk vs. wool).

Finished circumference is 18.5”, but it easily stretches to fit over my 23” head.

Twice as Nice Cowl

designed by Riin Gill

Twice as colorful, twice as squooshy, the Twice as Nice cowl is knit with two strands of Happy Fuzzy Yarn Superwash Sport held together throughout, in two different colorways. The pattern stitch is the same on both sides, so when you put it on, you don’t need to take extra time fussing with it. Just put it on, wrap it around your neck once or twice, and know you look good.
