Knitworthy 5
The collection features 8 patterns intended to make good gifts for everyone on your knitworthy list (because life’s too short to knit for anyone who doesn’t love what you make).

Perfect for keeping your neck warm on windy days without having to worry about the ends of a shawl or scarf coming loose. Radost is worked from the top down, starting with a neat folded edge worked using a provisional cast on. It knits up quickly with small sections of garter and brioche stitch and makes a great first brioche project. Increases at the centre front create a flattering and cosy bandana shape — it looks a bit strange flat but drapes perfectly when worn. Shown in Cyrano from De Rerum Natura, a round, 5ply structured yarn that creates well-defined stitches and deeply textured ribs.
