A quick and simple knit for a newborn baby, complete with a video tutorial on making your own pom pom. This pattern uses an acrylic DK weight yarn and can be made in an afternoon.
Columns of braided cables give the appearance of entwining hearts, making this a perfectly romantic knit. Knit in the round, using fingering weight yarn, this cowl is a great project for an adventurous beginner who wishes to branch out from plain stockinette and garter stitches. Cables may look intimidating but they are a fun technique to learn!
For all of us with a hoarded stash of leftover yarns from other finished projects, this is a great stash busting project that is simple enough to whip up in an afternoon, and is basic enough for a beginner. It will use those saved yarns in a fun way and you will find you cannot stop with just making one.
