One of the best things about the Autumn/Winter season here at This Is Knit is discovering how well the new yarns work with well-loved existing patterns. So imagine how delighted we were to make this connection: our Glenties mÃ¶bius cowl and brand-new Mirasol Api. We've added a few stitches to the pattern (it's free with the purchase of the yarn) for even more snuggle, and it's so soft and cosy. And just look at the colours... Api is a lovely blend of alpaca and Highland wool, and this cowl takes just two skeins. Cowls make splendid and rather economical gifts, too, if you're pondering Christmas knitting. The pattern's a true mÃ¶bius, starting at the centre with Cat Bordhi's clever cast on, and it's free with the purchase of the yarn. If you'd like to take a class on this method of construction, then we've got one coming up at the end of the month, and you can make a booking at this link.
