Merry Christmas !!!
Again it is time to think about gifts for knitter friends, non-knitting buddies, and family members. Of course, sweaters, shawls, and even socks take a lot of time and ask for more yarn than might be appropriate in every case.
If you are still looking for a nice accessory that looks fancy yet can be knitted in next to no time, the Lotus Cowl and the Lotus Wristlets might be the right option.
They are designed with Mini Mochi, but any other fingering yarn with a color gradient will do nicely. However I cannot get tired of the fabulous colors the team of Crystal Palace Yarns comes up with. Absolutely gorgeous. If you want to keep posted on their new releases and patterns for their yarns, you can subscribe to their newsletter here.
It is rather daring, because there are so many stunning colors, and you can hardly knit them all. At least this would be true if we were talking about projects that ask for a lot of yardage.
The Lotus Cowl comes in two different versions. A larger one that asks for 55g/ 1.94 oz, and a smaller one that only asks for 50g/1.76 oz. That is just ONE ball. The smaller version can also be worn as a headband by the way.
For the Lotus Wristles you will only need 40g/1,41 oz. If you want to knit a matching set, two balls of Mini Mochi will be plenty.
You will find all instructions written and charted along with graphics and ample photo tutorials. It is a modular yet seamless project that’s truly fun to knit.
This makes it a perfect Christmas gift to knit or to present the pattern to a knitter friend along with a nice ball of yarn.
And as if this wasn’t good enough already, I offer a free Ursa Major pattern of your choice to the first three who finish and post the pictures of a Lotus Cowl or a pair of Lotus Wristlets.
On your yarns, cast-on, knit !!!
Have a wonderful Xmas season
