Knitting: Cowl
ESCHER THREEFOLD is a cowl worked seamlessly in the round, using a provisional Cast On and Grafting to join both ends. It looks the same inside and out, upside and down. Choose three (or more!) colours from De Rerum Natura Ulysse’s vast colour range and watch the Escheresque metamorphosis unfold.

The pattern uses a combination of written-out instructions and a chart. For all of you who don’t like charts, I included a transcription of the chart as a separate file.
Knitting: Cowl
Think of those single skeins of super soft and squishy yarn in your stash. You know which ones I mean. They have the perfect fiber content, yardage, and colour, but you could never afford a sweater’s worth, so you only buy one at a time and never quite know what to do with them (other than admiring them every now and then).

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
The Marius Fingerless Mittens are a modern take on the well-known and loved Marius pattern. Knit in two muted shades and embellished with a subtle embroidery in duplicate stitch, these mittens play with the tradition and give an up-to-date feel to a great classic.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
A fun and easy design to add a pop of colour to dark days. The mittens are worked in stranded stockinette to prevent cold hands during adventures in the wild. Take advantage of Jamieson & Smith’s wide colour range and work in high contrast colours as I did or make a muted version with different shades of the same colour. The pattern looks g...
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
A nice, simple design for autumn. Worked in knit and purl stitches, the pattern adds interest without being frilly. Perfect for people who like it elegant, but not too fancy.
Knitting: Cowl
Note: The design seems to take more yarn than I expected. If you want to make sure to have enough yarn to finish the cowl in its original size, buy another back-up skein.
