Hey there! Are you excited to break out your chunky yarns? I know I am! That’s why I’ve decided to hold the first Arborista Cowl Knit Along! This is a fun and fast knit with a little bit of lace, and a lot of warmth.
What will you knit yours in? I can pictures this cowl in beautiful green, mustard yellow, maybe a maroon? And then there’s always the neutrals- anything looks great in a neutral!
I hope you’l join me for the Arborista Cowl KAL.
It starts today, but you can join in anytime between now (Sep. 24th) and October 14th! I’ve discounted the pattern from $6.00 to $4.00 in the pattern shop. The discount will be available until Oct. 14th for anyone who wants to join in on this KAL!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
US 10½ – 6.5 mm
Bulky / 12 ply yarn
4 stitches and 6 rows = 1 inch in stockinette
380 – 400 yards (347 – 366 m)
And don’t forget to post your beauties here on Ravelry in the projects section!
I am so excited to share my latest pattern with you! Some of you may have seen a little preview on Instagram, and it’s finally here and ready to put on your needles! The Arborista Cowl features an alternating pattern of lacy leaves, and contrasting solid ribbing for a truly eye-catching effect.
I wanted a lace pattern, but I also wanted a break in between where I could watch TV. and knit this infinity scarf. (You see where my priorities lie!) I wanted something that captures the spirit of fall (is that too corny?) and something that is truly fashion forward and unique. I think this infinity scarf achieves all of these things- and the pattern is so much simpler that you would imagine!
Gauge: 4 sts. & 6 rows = 1″ in stockinette (though since this is an infinity scarf, gauge isn’t terribly important).
Cast on today, and don’t forget to show me your amazing projects on Ravelry! I can’t wait to see this cowl knitted up in every color! As always, if you want to re-sell anything you make from my patterns, you are 100% welcome to! Thanks for supporting an independent designer!
Happy September! Who’s ready for fall yet? I’ll admit, after a year in the Caribbean, I’m excited to break out my jeans, boots, and of course, my yarn! I knitted this infinity scarf in Belize, awaiting the day when I’d actually be able to wear it. Unfortunately, that day has not come as it is 95 degrees here in Ohio. I’m in no rush to say goodbye to the sun, but I am ready to say hello to my cowls!
This is a really simple pattern, and great for beginners. What I love most about my pattern is the yarn. The mint green and gray colorway from Nerd Girl Yarns was so amazing I bought 5 skeins so…. matching hat to come? I think so. Ok, onto the knitting!

Wow. I’m still amazed by how much this pattern looks like cables. This was one of the most satisfying projects I’ve ever done and here’s why:
1. The pattern was easy to memorize (it’s just knits and purls!!)
2. I could knit this in front of the TV without looking at my knitting (the first time I’ve ever been able to do this)
3. I didn’t mess up once. (The first time this has ever happened.)
I’m so glad I discovered this stitch pattern on Knitting Unlimited! I can see turning this into a longer infinity scarf, fingerless gloves, maybe even a bag or pillow cover….
I think you’ll be addicted to this stitch pattern too as you knit through each row, you’ll start to see how deceptively simple it is. This cowl knitting pattern pairs nicely with a bold merlot, and your favorite binge-worthy show on Netflix.
One of the things I love about crochet is the ability to create a long chain and crochet all the way across. I wanted a scarf that was high-fashion, yet inexpensive and easy to make, ridiculously long, and dramatic. I came up with this very simple pattern that works for worsted weight yarn- and love the results! It’s a great T.V. crochet project, with it’s long rows, and simple stitches. It is also surprisingly quick to make since you only turn your work 8 times! The scarf wraps around 3 times, and is still dramatically long!

I’m loving this triangle crochet stitch! I wanted a light scarf for these cool May- and probably June- days. Damn Ohio! I was lucky enough to get out with my photographer friend Carrie for some pro- photos that turned out absolutely dreamy! You can check out Carrie’s site here. I used worsted weight yarn, and a size US I9 (5.5mm) hook. But you can do this pattern in any multiple of 4+2 stitches, so feel free to use any weight yarn you like!
