Luscious One Skein Cowl Recently, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a skein of Lion Brand’s new yarn Unique, in the Grapevine colorway. And it was so yummy I couldn’t wait to turn it into a new pattern! The Luscious One Skein Cowl can be made in just one evening, and I think it’s going to be a staple in my wardrobe – as soon as we get some Fall weather to go with it! Disclaimer: This post includes affiliate links. The Luscious One Skein Cowl is just long enough to drape beautifully and frame the face (and keep the chest warm!). If you prefer a longer infinity scarf style, you’ll need another skein or two, but it’s easy to upsize – just add to the starting row by a multiple of 8 sts!

The original Sweetie Pie Hat was striped, because back then, I had no reason to mind switching colors every eight rows (not to mention weaving in all those ends!). I still love that hat and will continue to wear it, but after knitting the Forever Baby Blanket for a friend, the For Better or Worsted from Anzula was calling my name.
