This is a test knit I very recently completed for the lovely Faye, a very talented British knitter, designer and blogger. The pattern will be available through Erika Knight at some point in the future. There will be a link on Faye’s blog, Buttons and Beeswax, and on Ravelry when it is finally released.
It was a fun and easy project, but the result is a luxurious and warm cowl!
Pattern: ZigZag Cowl*
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers, Straw-Gold
Needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm
*I’ll update the link to the actual pattern page on Ravelry once it’s available.
It’s a very versatile design and can be used as a hood, which is particularly useful for those of us who live in places where winter likes to make a very definite appearance!
Faye has previously designed a matching hat which is already available for purchase. You can see some great photos of it on her blog here: ZigZag Hat.
Thank you Faye for another great design, and for letting me test it out for you!
This hat is so vintagey, and was a pleasure to knit. It’s knit flat and then seamed. I was too lazy to figure out how to knit it in the round, though I know others have done so on Ravelry.
Yarn: Berroco Vintage, Breezeway 5194
Needles: US 9 / 5.5 mm
It was my first time using Berroco Vintage. It’s so soft! If I were to make this hat again (and I definitely might do just that), I’d probably go down a needle size since the hat grew quite a bit with wear.
I knit this hat back in October and only just got around to photographing it (tisk tisk!).
Pattern: Shroom Slouchy
Yarn: Cascade 220 *held double
Needles: US 13 / 9.0 mm
I reduced the ribbing section by 1″, and did only 4 repeats of the puff rib pattern.
A very quick knit with some fun stitchwork!

Yes, these babies are all that’s remaining in the Sale section of Lilibeth’s Garden.
Yesterday I said I’d have the pattern for the Cascade 220 Wool version of The Ashling Tote available in the near future. Sometimes things take much longer than you anticipated. This is not one of those times!
I have about 5 prototypes for the Cascade 220 version. Let’s just say that being a perfectionist is a curse.
I had this perfectly adorable pale green sample and I have chosen it as “the one”. I think I might even steal the sample and use it for myself.
