Every Which Way Cowl, Hat and Fingerless Mitts

Every Which Way Cowl, Hat and Fingerless Mitts
The first time I touched Bare Naked Wools ‘Confection’ I knew two things: 1) I wanted to wrap myself in the yarn and 2) the amount of “spring” in the yarn would make it a dream to knit with. The natural colours of the yarn made it so difficult to choose just one and so I selected two shades of grey and the natural figuring on deciding on a pattern later. A few days later this cowl sprang fully designed into my dreams and quickly flew off my needles.

After quickly knitting a cowl out of this yarn, I didn’t want stop knitting with this yarn and proceeded to design a matching hat and fingerless mitts. The generous yardage in these skeins mean that, with three skeins, there is easily enough yarn to knit the complete set.

The patterns are available individually or can be purchased as an ebook.
