Holiday stress can be intense.
Holiday knitting stress can put you over the proverbial edge.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Just pick the right pattern. Something very easy. Something very fast. Something in a special yarn or with a special touch that elevates it from “homemade” to “handmade.”
Last year, our go-to gift pattern was the Necks Big Thing. This year, we present…
The Xanax Cowl Kit.
You can also wear it folded over, like this:
Here’s all you do:
- Cast on 52 stitches in Malabrigo Rasta using #17 needles (straight or circular, doesn’t matter, ’cause you’re working back and forth).
- *Knit 2, Purl 2* to the end. Repeat this row to desired length (I did 20 rows). Cast off loosely in pattern.
- Feel your holiday stress melt away as you realize you can churn out a cowl in less than one episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo.”
Use our stunning Jul pedestal buttons instead of a seam, and you just saved another 15 minutes. These buttons screw into the piece and are made of leather…
Cracked coconut shell and leather…
Or dried ferns and leather.
You just unscrew the pedestal button, separating the larger, “front” of the button from the smaller “back” disc. Place the front wherever you want it to close your cowl, then use the back as a sort of washer on the back of the cowl, and screw it back together. This protects your yarn and keeps the button firmly in place. Here’s what it looks like on the back of your cowl. It’s nice and smooth and flat.
The kit comes in 3 colorways: Lettuce/Black Leather.
Or Belgian Chocolate/Cracked Coconut.
