A Happy Accident

Many months ago, Authoress was testing a completely different pattern for me. She excitedly shared some WIP pictures so we could ooooh and ahhhh over the gorgeous yarn choice. It took me until the next day to realize that the texture wasn't quite right. The stitch pattern was lovely but not what I had actually written.

My brain bees were BUZZING over emailing her about the overall pattern mistake. Not because I thought Authoress would be rude or resistant to correcting the project but because frogging can be THE WORST THING EVER. Who wants to be the bearer of bad news? Certainly not me!

She was gracious and kind about it and frogged without complaint. But the texture stuck with me and before I knew it, a new design took hold in my mind and The Great Mistake was born. It has been such a beautiful reminder that good things can come out of almost any situation, even those involving frogging.

Once upon a time, there was a knitter who loved the pattern she was testing. She started off working the stitch in a way that didn’t look like everyone else’s projects, but was also pretty amazing. From that happy accident a whole new design came to life, creating a lovely happily ever after to a frogging situation.

Worked in the round from the bottom up, Great Mistake is all one piece from cast on to bind off. A little bit of ribbing that flows into an all over texture makes a scrumptious and squishy cowl to see us all through the final days of cold weather.

As the fields turn golden in the late season sun, a strong breeze will build into a chill wind, forcing the weathervane to creak into a new direction. This change in weather, going from pleasantly warm to cold always catches me by surprise and I’m left scrambling for something that will provide protection from the chill. Weathervane is the perfect blend of quick and beautiful; A weekend knit that will work with whatever you have in your stash. Solid, variegated, or tonal, it will be the perfect canvas to showcase your yarn.

Hats and scarves are lovely sets but tend to leave a gap where wind can creep in. A hooded cowl is the perfect solution. Stranded colorwork offers extra warmth and the generous hood cuts the wind and protects you from basic elements without giving you quintessential hat hair.
