November Knits: Setzer

Another cowl?  You betcha!  Cowls came into fashion last winter, and are still some of our most popular projects.  We all love how quick they are to work up and how comforting they are to wear.Today’s holiday project suggestion is Setzer, a great accessory pattern from Jared Flood.  This pattern offers some fun challenges with short row shaping that makes the welting rows shift, providing soft texture reminiscent of moving water or shifting sand.  The finished cowl has beautiful weight and drape. setzer 02Setzer can be knit up in two sizes.  Our shop sample is the larger of the two. Amelia knit it up with a couple of skeins of Imperial Yarn’s Erin.We are thrilled to offer this soft worsted weight merino, in part because the yarn is so much fun to work with, and in part because of the exciting news that was released last week: Imperial Stock Ranch will be supplying Ralph Lauren with the yarn to be used for the 2014 US Olympic Team Sweaters.  Check out the video for more information.We hope that you can stop in this week to check out today’s project suggestion and let us help you find some yarn to recreate it.
