I am so proud to be included again this year in the Knitcircus Gifts Issue. It has 13 patterns, a couple recipes (one is mine!), and a terrific article on knitting with beads by Laura Nelkin.
My pattern is called Winter Tide. It comes in 2 versions. A cowl and an infinity scarf. It features reversible cables and is knitted in the round. It's simple enough to make for great tv or travel knitting. I know the samples went everywhere with me.
The long version came be worn as a long loop or doubled up as shown. It uses 1 skein of Miss Babs Yowza - Whatta Skein. I used Light Turquoise.
The cowl is closer fitting but not tight. It uses half a skein (or about 280 yds). 1 Yowza will get you 2 cowls and head start on your holiday knitting!
