With the hustle and bustle of the holidays upon us, I think each of us is craving the gentleness of soft fiber, rich colours, and comforting simplicity. Not to mention, perhaps, seeking a quick-to-knit project for those last minute gifts to hand out. With the help of the delightful Lynn Di Cristina, we’d love to offer up a little something to satisfy those needs!
Asante, available as a free download, is a rich, deep cowl perfect for late-fall knitting. Simple stitches and a cozy construction merge into an enchantingly classic piece that you’ll love to wear year-round. It highlights our Party of Five Mini Skein Sets gloriously.
