The Sierra Mountain Cowl by Grace Akhrem uses the fair isle technique to create this fun geometric chevron pattern. Two different shades of Elsebeth Lavold’s Silky Wool are blended to create a gradient effect with the main color and then knitters will add two additional colors for the bright accents. Silky Wool is a classic soft silk, wool, and nylon blend with a nubby almost tweed texture which gives the finished cowl a rustic finish. This dk weight yarn is held double on a large needle for a much quicker knit.
Elsebeth Lavold is a Swedish designer best known for her timeless design work known worldwide as ‘Viking Knits’. Elsebeth hand selects yarns she connects with made with mostly natural or all natural fiber blends and applies her design concept, to produce a harmonious collection.
If this is your first time to knit with this luxury yarn you will love the outcome. The yarn is soft around your face, forgiving to knit with, and makes a very fine finished fabric. To take a look at the pattern just click here.
A beautiful love story from Anny Blatt Luxury Line…Absolu is the outcome of an endless Passion for the oldest breeds of French Angora Rabbits, combined with a rare know-how! Patient, complex and infinitely precise cross-breedings have given Absolu its unique, exquisite and totally natural color.
Absolutely no dye used! Given the rarity of the fiber and the complexity of the process, only a very limited supply is available. Each skein is numbered. To protect their extreme softness and amazing fluffyness, each skein is delicately placed in its own individual case for you to appreciate fully.

This Noro Top by Jenny Watson is knit out of Kureyon Air is a great addition to your fall wardrobe. It knits up fast in this brightly colored bulky weight wool. The top is knit flat in two pieces with a simple seam on the sides and at the top of the shoulder. If you don’t love to seam it can be seamed up in less than 30 minutes, hooray! The pattern is written for 5 different sizes from X-Small to X-Large (photographed in small).
There is also an optional polo neck that can be knitted if you want something even more cozy. Throw this top on over something lightweight to enjoy cooler weather without getting to hot or layer it with something thicker.
Simple shaping creates a flattering waistline with an elongated back. You can decide how much seaming you want under the arm for a more closed or open look. This pattern by Jenny Watson is included in L & B’s Yarn Box, just click here to take a look!
