Greetings from Boston! The idea of posting some of our spring inspiration and patterns seems lunatic with winter still raging on here. Instead, it feels right to be continuing our chunky cold weather knitting, maybe just in happier colors to make us feel a little springy! So this week I'm highlighting a beautiful pattern by Noble Knits, a favorite online shop of ours, that carries a wide range of our yarns. Nancy, the owner came up with the Willow Street Infinity Cowl when in a pinch to knit up a gift for her friend over the holidays. The pattern is free (yay!) and calls for 1 skein of our Cast Away yarn and 2 skeins of Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted Yarn. Since I didn't have any Ewe Ewe yarn around, I opted for whatever was in my stash to create pretty marled color combinations. The end results make me so happy! I knit these on size US 19 needles, but the pattern calls for 50's, so this really will take you just a few hours. It's perfect instant gratification and a new spin on your old winter cowl you may be wanting to burn by now because you're so sick of it…or is that just me?! The pattern is available here.

Nancy used colorway Wildflower in Cast Away for her cowl, pictured above.

My first combo! I used Sunrise Collage Cast Away mixed with hot pink and orange yarns.

In my second combo, I used Walnut Cast Away mixed with red and maroon yarns.

For my third combo, I used Charcoal Blossom Cast Away mixed with shades of blue yarns.
