Loving Winter ♥ ❄ ☃ ☼
Here in the St Paul/Minneapolis and St. Croix Valley area, February is “exit time” for many people. We’ve had it with the cold and snow, but it’s mostly the cold that drives us to seek out warm, and sometimes exotic locations to enjoy a respite from the blasted arctic chill.
On the other hand, we also revel in the winter with celebrations like the Hot Air Affair in Hudson, WI and The Winter Carnival in St. Paul, MN, to name a couple of the well-attended events. We do make the most out of all of the seasons.
Inspired by warm winter vacations and the reds of Valentine’s Day, I’ve collected several of my knit and crochet patterns to share in my Loving Winter ♥ ❄ ☃ ☼ bundle. They offer you a selection of projects using variety of yarn weights.
These are available for free download through Saturday, February 21st. Have fun with them.
Happy knitting and crocheting!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Happy Winter vacation!
Thank you for all of the pattern support!
Do you need a quick-knit cowl to give your outfit a pop of color and glitz? Are you looking for an easy pattern to make fast and lovely gifts for family and friends? Here’s a suggestion for you.
Litoral Sparkle (or Litoral) from AslanTrends Yarns is a beautiful blend of texture and color and a perfect choice for this effortless moebius or infinity scarf or cowl.
Two patterns are included for your enjoyment: one is a moebius and the other an infinity scarf. Knitting just one hank of Litoral Sparkle or Litoral will result in a scarf that is 3 1/2” x 48” in circumference.
The scarf may be worn in a long loop, or twisted and doubled at the neck, which fashions into a tiered cowl.
