One of the most glorious words in the English language is "Apricity": a noun prounounced ah-PRISS-i-tee with the definition "the warmth of the sun in winter".
It's the perfect name for this cozy helmet hat knitted in simple Fisherman Rib (the easy-peasy cousin of brioche knitting).
Height: Approximately 11 ¼" including earflaps
This special kit includes 5 balls of 100% humanely-sourced French angora in your choice of colors and the knitting pattern. Each ball weighs .35 oz/10g and has a length of 33 yds/30m.
Wanna add to your knitting backpack? While knitting this fun cowl, you'll master the provisional cast on, easy (and fun!) short rows, giant eyelets (on purpose!), cool slip stitch manipulations, Kitchener grafting, and more!
A sampler project like this one is the perfect opportunity to master new techniques.
Special kit includes three magnificent hanks of custom hand-dyed worsted weight superwash merino and the pattern.

Amaze yourself (and your friend) with the reversible cables in Harmonia. Each side of this unisex scarf features different cables! No sorcery required.
Worked in 100% Mongolian cashmere, the design is worked from two different charts, one for Side A rows and the other for Side B rows. (But don’t be intimidated. The knitting is a little slow at first, but the reversible fabric is totally worth the effort!)
You’ll learn an interesting cabling technique while knitting this design: Two cable needles are used to turn each cable. (Again, don’t be intimidated. Remember: More.Is.Better! )
