Designer Feature: Foundations: Road To China Light

The Fibre Co. just released a collection of four accessory patterns in Road to China Light. Entitled Foundations, each pattern is designed with gift giving and skill building in mind. Designed using just 1-3 skeins each, there is still plenty of time to knit one - or all four! - for that lucky someone in your life.

TOP: L / Cable and Rib Hat. R / Cable Wristwarmers.
BOTTOM: L / Mistake Stitch Rib Hat. R / Textured Cowl.
