Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A great first in-the-round project for new knitters or an ultra-quick knit (~1 hour) for experienced knitters. First Hat is knit in the round on 16-inch circulars, tapering gently at the crown, then cinching closed before decreasing enough to require a switch to DPNs. The plain design showcases self-striping, textured or handspun yarns.
Named for the shape of the blocked cowl and the way the pattern trails sideways as it’s knit, this cushy cowl is as quick as it is dreamy. It knits up in under two hours from one skien of Malabrigo Merino Worsted (yarn doubled) with a simple repeating ripple pattern, making it an ideal last-minute gift!
Knitting: Animal Toy, Softies - Other
