Inspired by a late-winter snowstorm, Snow Days is just the thing if you’re feeling the need for a quick cosy knit. Worked in two skeins of luscious worsted weight merino, Snow Days uses contrasting textures to show off a beautiful yarn. The shift between garter stitch and texture sections makes this project the ultimate in potato chip knitting!
