This Choose Your Own Adventure inspired pattern collection offers lots of stitch pattern options (31!), which can be used with any of the items, tons of different ways to knit your piece - you can make hundreds of totally different objects between all the different choices!

The rounded cowl is worked sideways, with short rows for shaping. The short row wedges can be placed closer together or further apart, for more or less rounded-ness.

This was a knit-a-long in summer 2015; check out the leethal knitters! group for knit-a-long posts, to see the adventurous items that everyone made!

The ebook includes normal pages plus DIY foldable, bindable, covered print book pages, to make your complete pattern collection into a book like this.

Notes about materials and skills

  • all items work in any weight yarn, but you’ll have more usable options in lighter weights

  • yardage needed will depend on your weight, item, and size - rounded cowls may need 2-3 standard size skeins of yarn

  • all items are worked flat

  • some items and pattern options are more complex than others, so difficulty ranges adventurous beginner to experienced intermediate - you’ll be able to look at an option and see if it seems doable, choosing the options that look best to you
