Last year we announced a change of put-up for one of our favorite yarns, Canopy Worsted, from a 100-yard to a 200-yard skein, making it perfect for both sweaters and accessories that call for a defined stitch pattern and a hint of drape. With that we thought, “What better way to celebrate the new put-up than a booklet featuring five accessories using just one skein of Canopy Worsted?” Each member of the KW Design Team was asked to knit something that could be worked up in one weekend perfect for wear on a weekend getaway and we’re proud to introduce them to you! Also, check out the bottom of this blog post for an exciting chance to win an awesome giveaway!
First up, Adamstown by Courtney Kelley in Laguna. This cap features a box-style decrease at the crown as a perfect compliment to the diagonal textured stitch pattern.
Fuller Farm by Kate Gagnon Osborn features an intricate cable pattern for the more experienced weekend knitter.
Knit in Quetzal, this pop of color will be a great addition to a winter wardrobe. Greenpoint by Leah McGlone is a step down from the difficulty of Fuller Farm and features an i-cord cast-on and bind-off.
If you are new to cabling but want to challenge yourself to a new design technique look no further than Manheim by Maura Kirk. This cowl knit in Palm Bud features a bold cable motif great for those chilly winter mornings.
Last but not least is Wissahickon by Meghan Kelly. Knit from the top-down, this hat features a graphic lace motif for a non-traditional cap in the lovely color of Fern.
