Droid Please! (Warning: the Force is strong in this one!) Have you noticed that cowletes have become on of your favorite knits too? (I love them, don’t you know! One skein of yarn projects that just breeze off your needles and are a fuss-free piece of knitwear, what could be better?) This cowlette features an pattern stitch created with a double yarn over that produces these nice openings in the fabric. It has a slightly distressed feel to it, that might make you question you allegiance to the Resistance, or not. This particular colorway reminded me of a certain droid that has found his way into my heart, even if it took a little time. The best part of this? Start knitting on it now, and it will be finished in no time at all, leaving you to enjoy wearing it the rest of Fall!
