Knit in the round from the bottom up, this hat is a quick knit! With some garter stitch and a focal cable, this hat has a bit of slouch for a relaxed fit.

Corkscrew Scarf

Perfect for a dad, husband, brother or uncle, this scarf is inspired by the famous challenging “corkscrew” turn of the Laguna Seca raceway in Monterey, California. Of course this pattern is much easier to navigate! Garter and slip stitches come together to create an easy no-purl repeat that is reminiscent of tire treading.

Knit Collage Pixie Dust yarn with all its sparkles and cocoony awesomeness lends itself perfectly to this pillow. This pattern features a garter stitch front, knit in Pixie Dust and a herringbone stitch back side, knit in Knit Collage Sister yarn. Of course, the sides are interchangeable, which means you're really getting 2 pillow designs with this one!
