What to Knit with 3 weeks till Christmas

Make scarves! They don’t have to be your regular old scarves they can be interesting shapes and textures in yarns of all shapes and sizes but make them quick to knit – yes please!

Try The Knit Cafe’s latest neck charmer pattern called Bonnie Bandit.
This bandana style cowl can also be worn by a tiny tyke as a poncho.  Knit with the so inspiring Hedgehog Fibres you will really enjoy making this project and even though the yarn is fine this is still a one skein project. Choose three colours like we did and blend them together or just choose one – this bandana looks great either way!

This Magical Striped Scarf is brought to you thanks to Noro Yarn. Noro is the wonderful Japanese yarn that gently changes colours as it progresses. If you stripe it like we have in this scarf project you get a multicoloured wonder that is so fun to knit! We have a pattern and lots of lovely Noro Kureopatora wrapped up in a Knit-Kit here in shop for this project but you can also find the pattern HERE

Both Sides is a cowl project by the Knit Café. The pattern includes instructions for the short neck warmer shown here and also a double wrap version. Whichever you choose pick a pretty soft yarn like a hand dyed merino. We have lots of beauties from Lichen and Lace that will fit the bill. Knit in a worsted weight in an easy knit-purl stitch this project should give you no trouble.

Brooklyn Tweed has been producing some great knit accessory patterns as of late. Have you seen their Holiday Collection? Among the gems in this collection is this cowl called Fretwork.  Such a good looking cowl which features pretty stitches on both sides!

Then there is Notch – also by Brooklyn Tweed. This lush scarf features a simple 2 row repeat with open stitches matched with cushy ribbing.

Both these Brooklyn Tweed Patterns are knit with Quarry, the fattest of the Brooklyn Tweed yarns, so a good choice for this time of year. Quarry comes in gorgeous colours and is so cozy to wear.  You can check out Quarry colours at Thee Knit Café HERE but we have a few restocked that haven’t made it to the webshop yet – pretty Geode and stunning Lapis.

Craftily yours
Kristin
