Cowls and Scarves!
Deco Daisies: The Deco Daisies cowl is a light and airy accessory that complements a wide range of outfits. The lacy stitch pattern reduces the weight and bulk of many crochet designs. It features a flower pattern in an Art Deco style design, which is feminine and modern. All this adds up to a fun, fast piece that you are sure to want to make again and again. On sale for only $2!
Wallpaper Cowl: I love knitting that features unusual repeating motifs, and where better to look for inspiration than vintage wallpaper? If you’re new to color work, don’t fear–this cowl is a great introduction to stranded knitting and includes Latvian braids, which are easier than they look! A lining hides those pesky floats that have a tendency to snag and adds a hidden pop of color. Make it in brights for a modern feel, or go retro with muted tones. After all, this wallpaper doesn’t have to match your décor! On sale for only $2!
County Fair Scarf: This v-shaped scarf, crocheted with bold granny stripes and a striking color combination, melds the fashion-forward edge of a triangle scarf or kerchief with the ease of wear of a traditional scarf. I often find that if a kerchief is big enough to wrap securely around my neck, it’s too bulky, but I love the way they look. The long “arms” on this scarf, reaching out from a crisply pointed center, solve that problem neatly. A double crochet border all the way around neatens up the edges. On sale for only $2!
Who doesn’t love a scarf or cowl?! These are quick to knit and crochet projects that you will have done in no time. Mix up the colors and make one for everyone!
