Miura Cowl

I bought this pattern back in March, when Olga Buraya-Kefelian was generously donating 85% of all pattern sales to Japanese relief efforts. The Miura Cowl has beautiful texture and folds, and knit in Plymouth Earth Hillside Linen, is the perfect weight for the cool spring we’ve been having in Toronto.

I cast on 228 stitches for a longer, infinity-style cowl but check out RobbyRaccoon’s shorter version. Very pretty! I’ll just have to make another one!

Eternity Scarf

Eternity Scarf

I’ve wanted to make this scarf for a long time and my little sister’s recent promotion was the perfect reason to finally get going on it! I wanted to make her something special to mark the occasion.

I used Michele Wang’s Eternity Scarf pattern and the yarn is more of my new favourite, Plymouth Earth Hillside Linen. Although it looks like a lot of fabric, it’s a fairly quick knit. I knit almost all of it while watching Paul Greengrass’ Bloody Sunday. When I’m engrossed in something I must knit faster than usual.

Windschief Hat

Windschief hat

I knit this hat with my new favourite yarn — Plymouth Earth Hillside Linen. It’s a blend of linen and alpaca in natural colourways and has the most wonderful drape. I can imagine really loving a pullover made out of it. Maybe Linden Down’s Estelle Pullover?

The hat is Stephen West’s Windschief and I think I may just have to keep it for myself. The pattern comes as a hat/ cowl set and both are asymmetrical pieces using twisted stitches and worsted-weight yarn.
