Winter Wonder

Happy Winter Solstice! It seems almost perfect that last night, the longest night of the year, I stayed up late publishing my new design, Winter Wonder. I'm so excited to share it with you all because it feels like the perfect winter accessory.

As you can tell, we had a bit of fun with the many different looks of Winter Wonder!

All ilikecake needs here is the Baby Jesus and we'd have the perfect manger scene!

In addition to the infinity scarf, the pattern includes a cowl version.

Winter Wonder Cowl.2a

A perfect one skein project, using The Plucky Knitter MCN Lite, in Pretty Pretty Pola, a slightly lighter worsted yarn gives the cowl a bit of drape.

Winter Wonder Cowl.7a

Erica test knit the cowl for me in Kollage Yarns Fantastic in the colorway Smoke, and I just LOVE the uber-warm cozy feel of it in this yarn. Don't those cables just pop! Thank you Erica and her gorgeous model, Sheila, for the perfect snowy winter pictures!

Another thank you to my fabulous team, ilikecake (stunning model), cheekyattitude (awesome photographer), and cupcakefaerie (stylist extraordinaire)! I don't know what I would do without you ladies!
