Cowls and Scarves!

Deco Daisies by Michele Moskaluk

Deco Daisies by Michele Moskaluk

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 by Emma Welford

Wallpaper Cowl by Emma Welford

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 by Claire Denny

County Fair Scarf by Claire Denny

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!

Black Swan by Tara Shade

Black Swan by Tara Shade

Black Swan: From designer Tara Shade: We’ve all been there. Some days, despite hangers of options, you feel as if there’s just nothing to wear. That’s when I love spending some quality time with my closet, getting creative, and playing a bit of dress-up. During one of these mix and match moments, I worked the Black Swan into an outfit that I loved so much, and styled it into a look you can rock this late fall and winter. Don’t have a Black Swan of your own yet? You can get the pattern for half off right here at Holla KnitsOn sale for only $2!
