Elizabeth of Blue Bee Studio has given all of us the best holiday gift ever, an exclusive preview of her new pattern, Whirlwind! Dramatic cables and a field of textures combine for a strong, yet incredibly wearable statement. Knit flat with self-finished edges and joined neatly with a three-needle bind off, this cowl is essentially reversible. Perfect for a quick gift, Whirlwind knits up in a dash, and when paired with Plucky Knitter Scholar (a new addition to our shelves) it is a dream to knit. The merino and cashmere blend show off the pattern beautifully and one you begin knitting, you'll not want to put your needles down.
Needles: US 8 (5 mm) and two US 2 (2.75mm) or smaller circular needles to hold live stitches and work cable cross
Notions: Cable needle, tapestry needle, row counter and scissors
