This beautiful design from Louisa Harding goes perfect with any attire. Amitola Grande is a subtly self-striping worsted weight, single-ply yarn. The soft blend of wool and silk made in Italy creates a piece that is truly timeless. The pattern has well written instructions that are easy to follow and the lace work keeps you engaged until the project is complete.
Lots of texture is created by blending the Trenzar and Amitola Grande along with the lace work. I love the length of this cowl because you can wear it long or double wrap it around your neck creating even more warmth.
The project is bound off in an elegant picot adding even more to it’s posh presentation. L & B has several color combinations to choose from just click here to take a look. The pattern is available here.
Belfry & Boo-yah are another adorable donation to the 2017 Toy Drive! These patterns from Susan Claudino are a fun, quick and easy project for knitters at any skill level. All the shaping is made with increases and decrease stitches. The pattern is worked completely in the round and all the pieces are attached as you go so there is NO seaming, Yay! Belfry the Bat is approximately 5.25” tall from base to top of ears and Boo-yah! the Ghost is approximately 6” tall from base to top of head. Both samples were knit with dk-light worsted weight yarn.

Getting excited about fall weather and wrapping up in some of my favorite scarves!! The Pradera Wrap by Jocelyn Tunney is one of those favorites. It’s really wide and long so it can be wrapped a couple of times around my neck or I also like to tie it up in a key hole. The width makes the fluffy fiber bunch up around my face keeping me nice and toasty warm.
Clara by Manos Del Uruguay is an amazingly soft 100% superwash merino. It is a light and lofty sport-weight yarn with a hefty 385 yards per skein. I have washed this scarf multiple times and it still looks just as lovely as the first time!
The pattern is a great step up from a beginner scarf but because of the change in colors, creating a gradient effect, it is fun for knitters at any level. L & B Yarn Co. just received our fall shipment and we have 16 colors to choose from to make an amazing custom gradient scarf for you or a friend.
Here are a couple other color suggestions for this beautiful wrap!
With 16 colors available the color combinations are endless.
