Go Big or Go Home

Monday's new Yarn post is a day late, today  you will get 2 new yarns in one post.

Thanks to Frances for doing up this sample for the shop.  Ropes Cowl, designed by Kristina Larson for Gina  Brown's Yarn in Calgary.  Such a cute pattern, just I-cord loops in increasing lengths, made from Malabrigos' Rasta.  You will find that we have 3 colourways in this Super Bulky Yarn.  It takes only one 150 gram skein to make this pattern.

 I made this cowl in 2 evenings. Using 12 mm needles,  Provisionally  cast on 25 stitches and knit until you have enough left to cast off.  Ideally you would do a graft/Kitchener stitch  to join the 2 ends but I choose a 3 needle bind off.

 It's big and bulky, but you will thank me in January when you need that big scarf around your neck.
 Both patterns are easy beginner designs and would make great gifts!

The shop is becoming very full with a whole bunch of new yarn.  Today a bit of Noro arrived and 2 new yarns from Sirdar, they had lovely samples!

Happy Knitting everyone!
See you Soon
