elgin knit works betangled cowl 720x720p

December Sunday Workshop: Betangled Cowl

Any Sunday in December. 10:00 am – 1:30 pm $25 (materials additional) The Betangled Cowl is a warm, luxurious cowl for those coldest of days in deep winter. The fabric is completely reversible, with dramatic ribbed cables on a garter-stitch field. This cowl is knitted from one short end to the other, and then the ends are connected with a button closure. The pattern includes three sizes: a single loop, a longer single loop that can be worn around the shoulders, and a double loop. The circumference of the loop can easily be adjusted as you go. Although the pattern calls for worsted-weight yarn, dk, and aran-weight yarns will be equally beautiful. Fully written instructions are provided, along with an optional chart.

Many of you have gotten to know our landlord Grace (the Duchess of Douglas). This year she began volunteering at Anderson Animal Shelter. Shortly after she started she adopted her 3-legged cat, Zeus. We have come to enjoy hearing about the adventure of the animals at the shelter and have also enjoyed collecting supplies, toys, and food for Grace to donate. This year we have decided that our charity will be Andersons. If you are interested in donating supplies, toys, or food please check out the Anderson wish list by following the link. can be dropped off at EKW right up until Christmas. ... See MoreSee Less
