Knit A Bit Of Whimsy is a soft and cozy cowl that is a fun way to experiment with colors and a variety of stitch patterns. Pair complimentary light and dark yarns with a variegated yarn and enjoy the rhythm of simple patterns flowing through color changes. The cowl was designed to be the perfect travel or TV companion. Jump on a train, plane, or in a car, turn on your favorite show to binge, and get lost in the knitting. Sojourn by Miss Babs is a luxurious cashmere and silk blend that begs to hug your neck and keep you toasty in the colder months.
