This scarf earns its name because it looks deceptively complex, but is actually very simple. No purl stitches or slip stitches are used and you are never carrying more than one color yarn across a row. It is knit with CoBaSi by Hikoo from Skacel which is a lovely fingering weight yarn with a smooth finish. Perfect for a summer weight scarf.
One small error was found in the chart legend. The second line in the legend should read “P on RS - K on WS”. The written instruction was correct, just the chart legend. The pattern has been updated with the correction.**
This cowl was originally designed for the participants of A Good Cruise 2015, hosted by A Good Yarn Sarasota.

There is nothing more delightful than a newborn baby; the soft, sweet smell of their head, their pink rosy cheeks, their tiny little fingers, and their pudgy miniature feet. Too small yet to carry them from place to place, babies kick their feet when they are happy and grab them when they are bored. This is the perfect time to cover their tootsies in our sock puppets. Created small for feet not quite ready to walk, these puppets will delight and entertain your baby to no end. This book has 13 patterns of charming creatures created by Kathy Gometz.
Ready for dancing La Bamba, this playful skirt is worked top down in the round using Stockinette Stitch. There are twelve faux panels. Six of these panels are flared at the bottom to widen the hem circumference needed for free movements. When finished, the purl side is used as a right side of the garment. Keep all ends on the knit side. The skirt allows for an easy length modification mentioned in the pattern. The elastic waistband accommodates for a good fit.
It seems like one thing that post-apocalyptic fiction agrees on is that we’ll be walking a lot after the end of civilization. With all that walking going on, you’ll need a good set of boots as well as sturdy socks. For some reason, the books tend not to focus on socks…
These worsted weight cuties are designed for heavy use. They have a slipped stitch pattern to cushion the feet and a short leg tailored for wear with ankle boots, and work up so quickly you’ll be able to wear a pair and trade another for supplies!
This precocious little ball of sheep is soft and cuddly. Knit with Caribou from Hikoo.
