Love is the Answer

The Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop took place April 6th-9th, and this year’s theme was celebrating music. Most importantly, this event was a food shelf drive. The 14 participating yarn shops collected over $60,000 for the area’s food shelves. Well done!

This year’s Yarn Shop Hop theme is celebrating music, and I have, with humble appreciation, selected the song Love is the Answer. I believe it is one of the most inspirational songs ever written. It has helped me through difficult days and brought me more joy in happy times. Check out the lyrics and give it a listen. Please support the artist by purchasing it through iTunes. Love IS the Answer!

“Light of the world, shine on me
Love is the answer
Shine on us all, set us free
Love is the answer”
— Todd Rundgren

The cowl is knit with a lightweight cotton tonal yarn, Driftone by Plymouth Yarn. It is beaded, but beads are optional. It’s knit with size 8 circular needles, 40 or 47” length. The projects uses 1200 beads (80 grams). I used TOHO 6/0 round beads, crystal with a rainbow coating.
The beads were purchased at Bobby Bead in Minneapolis.

Thank you for participating in the 2017 Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop and for your contribution to the area’s food shelves. Please enjoy the pattern.
Happy Hoppin’!
