As You Like It, aka Knitter’s Choice

I’m having a knit party at Twisted next month as a fund-raiser for our high school booster club. I did this last year, too, and wrote the Checkerboard Scarflet pattern for that party. This year’s party will feature a pattern for even quicker neckwear. These cowls are designed to be knit with Malabrigo Chunky. What’s not to like?

The pattern is called “As You Like It.” There are two cowls worn three ways. This one is my favorite. I love the fabric and the texture. Knitting this was heavenly.


Here is the other one/two. Knit it once, you can wear it either way.

They’re fairly simple projects, since the party is for knitters of any skill level. I hope they like them! We’ll also have needles donated by Lantern Moon to work with. Again, what’s not to like? The patterns will be for sale as a set.

And now, back to my Christmas knitting! I need to finish the stealth project, and then write up the pattern. I’m really pleased with it, It’s turning out just the way I wanted…after three tries.

Do you have knitting to finish before Christmas?

  1. Great design work! Wish I live near and be at the party 😀 Happy Holiday.

  2. Very pretty! Good luck with your fundraiser!

  3. The only thing I have left that I am going to finish before Christmas are some felted elf booties for my nephew. I’ll be sure to post when I’m finished!

  4. Good luck with your fundraiser! I still have about 1/3 of a Christmas project to complete…sigh, hope I finish in time!

  5. Very nice! Good luck on Christmas knitting and happy holidays!

  6. Good luck with the fundraiser!!! I still have two projects to go for Christmas. Both started…but we’ll see. I knitting as fast as I can…

  7. I shopped my buns off for my sister-in-law and came up empty. Then it hit me that I have the perfect glitzy yarn for a Montego Bay Scarf. I’m balling up the skeins now; I know full well it won’t be finished in time for Christmas, but that’s how I roll. ;-D

  8. Such cute pictures of you!

  9. The cowls look so cozy and warm. And with malabrigo, you can’t go wrong!

    I just finished my lone gift! Whew. On my blog!

    Looking forward to the party in January. I am working on a sleepy owl pattern blanket and it is turning out great. squares are big but in the end it is a blanket after all.

  11. Did you say “any skill level?” Including me? I’m looking for Knitting 101 but thanks to you I already know about Malabrigo yarns and Lantern Moon ebony needles. What’s a good first project for someone who doesn’t even remember how to cast on? Dee

  12. What a great idea for a fund-raiser! After a cool, brisk wind yesterday, I think I need to add a cowl to my queue. Yup – some last minute Christmas knitting to finish – the 2nd “Cat Mitten” for my youngest son. Happy Holidays! :0)

  13. My version of Pippi is finished and posted. It turned out quite cute! 🙂 I can’t wait to see your stealth project.

  14. yes, I have a whole mitten and a half to do yet. And a bit more spinning and plying because the homespun itself is the gift…

    wrapping? What’s that???
