Double duty

We particularly like patterns that create finished items that can be worn in multiple ways.  Convertible accessories are doubly rewarding because it feels as though you get more than what you put in.Amelia has created a new sample for us that Bristol Ivy designed to be worn in various ways.  We'd like to introduce you to Troika.troika"Troika can be worn many ways depending on how you button it. Wear it fully buttoned for a close, high-volume cowl, or partially buttoned for a deep, drapey kerchief. The possibilities are endless!"Ravelry has a large selection of convertible patterns with similar flexibility. Andrea Mowry's Yoga Shawl is designed with buttons along one side to facilitate wearing it in various ways.And you may remember several of our favorite past samples: the beautiful Stringband hat/cowl that Kristin knit up for the shop a couple of years ago, Yellow Brick Road is a cowl that can be worn in more than a handful of ways, and Stranger is a Brooklyn Tweed cardigan designed by Michio that can be worn in two ways for different looks.We hope that you have a chance to stop by and try this sample on, in various ways, to see if this convertible project is one you'd like to work on next.
