This clever bandana uses knitting on the WS to create the purl ridges. Therefore you only need to purl to maintain the stockinette sections! Use a closing shawl pin or sew on a button & loop closure to secure.

It all started with a ball of yarn. It sparkled and glimmered at me until I would stroke it’s soft alpaca halo. I was hooked after that! Schulana’s Luxair (distributed by Skacel) is currently my all time favorite yarn. I dream of knitting a throw with huge 8 stitch cables all over it. It will be warm, soft, and I’ll never leave the house again if I make it!

Anyway, about the collection. There is four quick knit hats; Adventure, Venture, Embark, and Journey. All of the hats are reversible sans Venture. Adventure, Embark, and Journey finished measurements are: Brims are 17.5” / 45.5cm but it will stretch to fit 23” / 58.5cm, Depths are 8” / 20.5cm. While Venture is a super slouchy with a Depth of 10” / 25.5cm.

 

The eBook is available via Ravelry for only $15 USD

Ever need a scarf project that is unique, looks amazing, costs less than $20, and need it finished in under an hour because you forgot to get someone a gift?

Well then you are in luck! Even if you are more organized than some people * cough * me * cough * you will enjoy it’s simplistic nature and the fact that the yarn is up-cycled from T-shirts! The pattern is over here, and it’s free!
