Finished Knits = Photo Shoot

The last couple of weeks has had me starting to think about designing again.  So, to ease myself back into the process slowly, here are the first finished designs; the Spiral Hat and Spiral Cowl.  These were designed to be a next step project after you have learned to knit.  The pattern stitch is easy to remember, fun to knit and the finished item looks great.  The patterns are in the process of being test knit and then they will be available for all to enjoy! 
Pattern - Wildflower Wool Spiral Hat and Cowl
Yarn - Hat, Patons Classic Wool in Flagstone; Cowl, Patons Canadiana in Navy
My Niece and Nephew came for a visit this weekend so we had fun with a photo shoot!

The spiral pattern

Decreases at the top

It seems to fit well even if you are upside down :)

Anyone can wear this - men or ladies

The cowl is just as fun to wear

and when you add the matching hat, they both keep you warm even in crazy cold temperatures!!

What a fun design. It's such a good winter for cowls and this one looks cozy.
