Lickity Split

In Fingering weight yarn, One skein projects, Patterns, Socks by Shannon

These socks will be done lickity-split, because you won’t be able to put them down.

Corduroy

In Fingering weight yarn, Patterns, Shawls & Shawlettes, Shop sample available by Shannon

Corduroy isn’t just for pants anymore! These shawls play around with alternating stockinette and reverse stockinette sections to create “wales” of different sizes, much like those corduroys that provide such warmth and comfort.
