Here in Boston it is COLD, and I mean in the teens and twenties COLD. I've been keeping up my morning runs but it's brutal outside. Staying properly bundled is essential. Cozy cowls, maxi scarfs and chunky knit hats are how I beat the cold. Not only do the bright, happy colors in our yarns add a smile to my face, each accessory keeps me nice and toasty too. Here are my top four pattern picks to stay warm this winter. I hope you'll join me in knitting one of these up.


Today, I also released the Do a Little Dance Cowl pattern. Saying yes to more spontaneous dance parties, especially in winter when the dreary weather can get me down, is a must! I hope you're with me on this and that this cowl may inspire you to do just that. The pattern is now available here.

Beat the cold with these for knitwear patterns: the Pom Bomb Hat, the Gypsy Stash Hats, the Penny Lane Mittens and the Stripe Story Scarf.
