This Friday we are super excited to be releasing our newest pattern Cosy!
Cosy features an oversized circular yoke in soothing garter stitch, I-cord edges that are knit at the same time as the garment, and contrasting cuffs which adds a pop of colour. The idea behind this design was to create an easy and quick cardigan with minimal finishing, so you can cast on, knit and then bind off and wear.
Cosy was created using our newest yarn base, Floof DK. This yarn has a soft halo of baby alpaca that is lovely and warm, yet really light to wear. We used Barley for the main colour and chose Zinnia for the cuffs. Of course, you can choose to leave the cuffs plain for a more subtle look.
This week, we will be adding a ton of Floof to the shop to coincide with the release of our Cosy cardigan. You could also substitute Floof with any DK yarn you have in your stash.
