SQUSHYA COWL I know, we've a real cowl issue around here! But this one is going to save your bacon if you're stuck for last minute gift ideas... Using one skein of Mirasol Ushya and 12.75mm needles there's really no more than 2 hours of knitting here, maximum. It's a lovely woven stitch and there's no need to worry about button holes because the texture of the fabric allows buttons to go through pretty much anywhere you like. The cowl can be worn in a variety of ways... and the pattern is free with the yarn. Both yarn and buttons are part of our ten-for-three promotion so pick them up in the shop, by phone or online in the next three days and enjoy the 10% discount :D Thanks for joining us on our tour of quick knits and crochet gifts these last few weeks. Happy Christmas and Happy Crafting everyone!
