Welcome Holla Knits blog tour riders! Thanks for coming!
The New Holla Knits Magazine!
I sneaked this yesterday, but the new Holla Knits Magazine launched yesterday and inside are 4 articles and 5 patterns to keep you knitting your way through the summer. Including my cover design, Francisco Cowl!
I love the bandana cowl shape that’s popping up everywhere and wanted to design my own with the idea that it would be a nice little pop of color and just the slightest little neck warmth you’d need for a cool summer day.
On the left I’ve knit it up in Knit Picks Hawthorne Fingering Kettle Dyed, so it’s got a really lovely variation that’s not too bold, which is perfect for this design. Any fingering weight semi solid would be a big winner!
On the right I’ve knit it up with just one little skein of Knit Picks Comfy Fingering in one of my favorite KP colors – Peapod! The cotton blend is super light and holds the eyelet polka dot pattern really well, and is just the absolute softest yarn against your skin.
