Cozy Fashion Accents
Cozy Fashion Accents includes patterns for 10 pretty knit sets. Each set includes a pattern for a matching set of ear warmers, scarf and boot cuffs. Beautiful stitch patterns, chevrons and cables are created using medium weight yarn (Furry Stripes Set also requires Bulky Weight Yarn) and 16-inch circular knitting needles (sizes: 8 or 9). These designs will make lovely warm accessories for family and friends!
The designs included are:
- Chevron Seed Stitch Set (Easy)
- Little Shells Stitch (Easy +)
- Arching Cables Set (Easy +)
- Double Seed Stitch Set (Easy)
- Garter Stripes Set (Easy)
- Slip Stitch Set (Easy)
- Hurdle Stitch Set (Easy)
- Furry Stripes Set (Easy)
- Trinity Stitch Set (Easy)
- Serpentine Cables Set (Easy)
All designs, except for the Furry Stripes Set and the Slip Stitch Set, are worked in a single color of yarn. These unique designs have gorgeous texture and appear to be extremely soft and cozy!
Throughout Cozy Fashion Accents, you will find Bonus Online Tutorials for different stitches and techniques you may need to know to create the projects. Each time you see the little orange camera a related tutorial is available.
Each pattern is written in U.S. Knit Terminology and an explanation for the abbreviations, symbols and terms is provided on page 28. Gauge is crucial for fit and is discussed as well in this section.
The yarns used to create the projects pictured in Cozy Fashion Accents include Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, Red Heart Super Saver and the accent yarn for the Furry Stripes Set was Lion Brand Fun Fur.
General Instructions have been included to explain the basics of Circular Knitting, Markers, Changing Colors, Knit Increase, Purl Increase, Yarn Overs, Knit 2 Together, Purl 2 Together and Purl 3 Together. Diagrams and written explanations have been provided for the General Instructions section.
Of the projects included my favorites are the Little Shells Set and the Slip Stitch Set.
I think these sets will make lovely accessories this season and perfect gifts for your family and friends!
