“You can’t just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You’ve got to get out there and make it happen for yourself.”
-Diana Ross

Named for the beautiful Higgins Lake State Park in northern Michigan, this hat features a fun and addictive two-color mosaic design. The mosaic method of slipping stitches creates a beautifully squishy fabric while using just one color in each round, making it the perfect introduction to colorwork. The classy design makes it perfect for everyone in your family, and you’ll be knitting Higgins Lake for all of your knitworthy loved ones.

Overflowing with twelve beautiful designs featuring local indie yarn dyers and stunning views of the Michigan landscape, this issue is our largest yet! The knitting patterns include a hat, socks, shawls, and sweaters, and range from fingering weight to worsted and from beginner to advanced. Fall in love with Michigan from the comfort of your home; explore the region with us as you turn the pages, meet the local indie dyers, and pick a new project to cast on.
