Zen Yarn Garden & a Quick Cowl!

One of our most popular yarns is the custom-dyed “Tahoe” colorway by Zen Yarn Gardens. This gorgeous yarn is unique to The Knitting Nest, and makes a fabulous gift or keepsake. We love this quick, go-to cowl pattern to show off the vibrant colors (and it knits up so quickly, there’s still time to make at least one for the holidays!). This Fisherman’s Stitch Cowl is FREE with purchase of the yarn!
