Rainshowers Cowl

April showers bring May flowers, or so they say. In the Pacific Northwest, it seems that the rainshowers are gone already, and flowers abound. But, just in case those showers do come back, this cowl has got you covered. There are two versions – a single loop that doubles as a snood or hood, and a double loop that can …

The Zig and the Zag

Zig and zag your way through this fun project. This hat is a little bit slouchy and a lot bit fun to knit. The added bonus is that it’s completely reversible – the reverse-stockinette look is the one you are actually knitting.

Beads on each edge give it the pleasant sparkle of conversation with neighbors met on a balmy summer evening’s stroll… Or, snapping back to reality, it calls to mind more… dynamic… city …
