Ok, it’s winter…

… it’s dark early, it’s getting colder, the Toy Show’s been on the Late Late. But we’ve got lovely new things to keep you warm as toast, with the yarn and the pattern all packaged up in a kit ready to cast on.

We’re very proud to say that the three cozy accessories we have to show you today are all original This Is Knit designs. The first is a hat which commemorates Jacqui’s visit to the Ray D’Arcy Show back in June.

This is the Bobblehead Ray hat, and it’s made from one skein of Noro Kogarashi, a bulky mix of silk and wool. It’s suitable for men or women, it’s slouchy and it’s warm.

Next up, we’ve got a dream of a cowl. We debuted this at the Knitting and Stitching Show, and it’s a yarn combination made in heaven: Debbie Bliss Party Angel, which has a subtle little sparkle, and a luxurious DK yarn like Mirasol Tuhu, Louisa Harding Grace or Debble Bliss Andes:

Finally, we’ve got Jacqui’s new pattern, the Rivendell cowl. This is a very simple and satisfying lace pattern, knitted in snuggly Malabrigo Rios. It’ll take you no time at all to make:

(Sources close to Jacqui have exclusively revealed that there is a matching hat pattern in progress.)

All of these patterns are free with the purchase of the yarn, and their kits are all neatly packaged up for you to take away as a gift for someone deserving – or for yourself, the most deserving one of all.
