Pom Pom Scarf by Knit Collage

Knit Collage’s Marled Chunky Cocoon Scarf and Pom Pom Scarf are two of our current favorites! They knit up fast — think 2-4 hours fast — on LARGE needles (35). This is a fun, quick project that’s just as much fun to wear as it is to knit. And we’ve got tons of great color combinations to choose from…

These bright and beautiful fibers are a perfect way to brighten up these cold winter days. Why not make one of each?

Happy knitting!

Time for a Quick Holiday Knit?

Every year, around this time, we suddenly realize that the holidays are fast approaching and we’d better get cracking on those holiday knitted gifts! To help you create something special and beautiful in a short amount of time, we’re currently featuring some really lovely small projects. These are knit in just 1 to 3 skeins and come in some truly decadent, gift-worthy fibers.

One of our favorites this year is the Quaking Aspen Cowl by Tahki Stacy Charles. It’s a quick, 3 skein project in their Vermont Yarn (50% Merino / 50% Alpaca). It would make a perfect holiday gift.

We’ve also just received some new kits for the Puffy Cable Cowl by ArtYarns. For $58, these kits have everything you need to make a truly unique gift: 1 skein of Cashmere Glitter (100% Italian Cashmere with Lurex) and a free downloadable pattern. All you’ll need to add is a set of US 6 needles. Just mention this blog post to receive 15% off!
