The Cabled Wrap is a quick and clever shrug that gives
cable interest without adding bulk where you don't want it.
This is knit using 5-9 skeins of Rowan Baby Alpaca DK in Cheviot.
The Leaf Detail Collar uses just two skeins of Rowan Felted Tweed DK, knit above in Duck Egg.
The pattern has just enough detail on each end and a clever open pocket to slip the end through.
Also includes technique for a "no-turn" bobble.
Well, OK, this is my 2nd reason for buying the book.
Also knit in Felted Tweed DK and uses 3-5 skeins.
The one above is in the color Clay.I made a similar cape for a child and was thinking, "wouldn't this be nice in an adult size?"
The Reversible Shrug is knit using a reversible cable technique, no wrong side!
This uses 7-13 balls of the super soft and cozy Lima in color La Paz.
The Bold Strip Scarf is cleverly knit in the round using Kidsilk Haze in eye popping colors.
I like this one so much.
A fantastic addition at the end; there are 6 pages on how to tie scarves.
Sarah also includes very clear technique instructions including pictures,
on how to do everything from cables, to fairisle and short row shaping and more.
There are 22 designs in the book and I've shared just a few of my favorites. You can view ALL the patterns from the book here on Ravelry. The yarns used throughout the entire book are from Rowan. I hope you can find the book and yarn at your lys, but if not, I've included shopping links below!
