The Thneed…it’s what everyone needs!!! Well Dr. Suess has always been a favorite of mine and this pattern is in honor of the Lorax!! I didn’t use a Truffula Tree and the yarn for this project is a renewable resource, so I am proud to call it The Thneed and say it’s definitely what everyone needs!!

The color is from Jimmy Beans Wool’s Toshstrology Collection and is in honor of all the Cancer birthday’s out there! I used up most of the yarn and encourage you to always consider getting an extra hank and returning it if need be. Here’s JBW’s return policy.

I used 2 hanks of this lovely yarn for the sample and it uses short rows. I have chatted with many knitter’s during the creation of this one and I taught myself to knit backwards and it makes it super easy for me. However, it has come to my attention that is doesn’t make it easier for everyone, so knitter’s choice here.

I made this video a long time ago for JBW and I hope it helps you with this project. I am an English knitter, but did chat it up with another knitter and she helped me figure out that for Continental knitter’s throwing is how to knit backwards.

The piece uses the Picot Cast Off and I did a video for JBW on this too!

Please note that the holes that are created are the button holes for wearing the cowl/scarf using buttons, which are optional. A nice shawl pin will be lovely! Knitter’s choice and please let me know if you have any questions.

Happy knitting from BBK!!!
