Anush, translated literally, means ‘sweet’ in Armenian. However it has a lot more meaning; it is often used to mean ‘let it be sweet’ when you serve a meal, drink a toast, or give a gift. More loosely translated it can be used to mean, let it be wonderful and enjoyed, and this is the meaning I chose for the shawl. Anush is meant to be a warm and luxurious shawl that makes you feel cozy both inside and out.
This pattern includes both charted and written directions.

This top down cardigan is worked in one piece from the neck down with raglan sleeves. The cuffs and front bands of the sweater feature a brioche stitch. Brioche is easier to knit than you think, and I encourage you to give it a try! It’s also incredibly plush and cozy. The fabric is denser than a traditional ribbing and much wider and shorter.
However, if you’d prefer to knit the the sweater with a ribbing instead please note that the brioche stitch is wider than a traditional ribbing, so skip the decreases and work in ribbing.

The Matterhorn scarf and cowl feature the same cable chart. Knit as a scarf the chart is worked just once, or knit as a cowl the chart is worked three times. There are two types of cables, and the scarf and cowl can be worn so that the cables go any way. Although the scarf has different patterns on the front and side I find the reverse side to be nice too.
Please note, the cable pattern is charted and there are no line-by-line written directions for the cable chart.

This pattern was inspired by the beautiful handspun yarn from Fuzzbee Yarns. I loved the slight variation in the thickness of this single ply handspun, and I wanted a stitch pattern that would show off the beauty of the yarn. After trying a slew of different stitch patterns, some simple, some quite complicated, I settled on this lovely drop stitch pattern. It is simple to knit, and looks elegant without being too plain or too ornate.
