We spend a lot of time planning our samples at Westport Yarns. The plans are in place long before the yarns come in. Once the new yarns arrive, the urgency sets in.
One of the new yarns we got in this fall is Juniper Moon Farms Moonshine (Worsted: 40% Alpaca, 40% Wool, 20% Silk, 197 yards). When I was asked how fast I could knit up the sample in the Moonshine, the first thought that came to me was, "Knit Forest, Knit". It's ok, I crack myself up.
Knit Forest, Knit is a really quick knit. The yarn is held double and creates a fabric that is s soft, squishy, smooshy, and reversible. The cowl can be worn several ways.
Wear it folded over.
Wear it slouchy. It has perfect coverage to keep your neck and shoulders warm.
(Please notice that my lovely model is holding a box of chocolates.)
Wear it as a snood.
Great for both beginners and experienced knitters. When you're finished knitting the cowl, treat yourself to a piece of chocolate.
The pattern is free at Westport Yarns with the purchase of 2 skeins of Moonshine or you can find the pattern here on Ravelry.
