Julie just set up a code in her etsy shop for 10% off Nurtured - use 10off - link:

This one is perfect for gift knitting - super quick and easy to make, a great wardrobe basic for anyone on your list, and you can work it in a variety of sizes, depending on how much yarn you have in stash or what your recipient needs!

The name “Hot The Top” is a tribute to my Grandma Edie, who passed away on her 94th birthday this October. If you had ever sat for a cup of coffee or tea with her, after a little while at the table she’d get up and go to the stove. Then she’d come back with a hot kettle and offer you a bit more from the pot and ask if she should “hot the top” for you. Plus, she was a knitter…

The design was created to showcase Nurtured, which features flecks of various colors mixed into each of the colorways, and those subtle hints of green, gray and purple show up beautifully in a simple motif. This combination of bold lace and large needles creates a pattern that allows the yarn to shine and knits up in no time -- plus it’s one of those pieces that just goes with everything. I may need another in Julie’s off white…

Cowl shown is 15”/38 cm wide and 51”/129.5 cm long.

You can knit this to any desired depth but below are the different lengths you’d get, knitting to the same width, with different quantities of Nurtured:

2 skeins (260 yds/235m) = 28”/71cm long
3 skeins ((390 yds/355m) = 42”/106.75cm long
4 full skeins (520 yds/475m) = 56”/142.25cm long
