So I have not just one, but TWO! awesome bigsessories for you.
I love the pairing of this with a leather jacket; there’s a vintage feel to it. The pattern calls for Gedifra Highland Alpaca, which is a super bulky weight yarn that comes in a large array of colors… and is on sale at Jimmy Beans right now, coincidentally. I love the neutrals, but I might be tempted to use a teal yarn, too.
The pattern is $3.50, too, which makes me happy. All of Eveli’s patterns are super cute and reasonably priced, which preys on my impulse-buy weaknesses. I want this hat, yo. Plain and simple.
Yeah, just like that! FACE COWL!
How gorgeous is this thing? It looks like a five-second knit, in Classic Elite Twinkle Soft Chunky… But how does this photo make the yarn seem like it’s a silk blend?! It’s 100% wool, so I assume it’ll pretty much save me from freezing high in the mountains of Houston*. Looking through the FO page, I’m drawn mostly to the solid projects, as opposed to the multis or semis. What a perfect gift opportunity, too! I love it! Big cowls are so hot this season, and I might be inclined to triple the length on this one and make it a mobius scarf, which I would wrap around my face about eighty times before passing out blissfully on a fainting couch, awash in my own fabulousness. Stop looking at me like that!
Simple knits in big yarns are so incredibly sexy, and have a wonderful way of contrasting with smaller knits to give textural variety without turning into the yarn monster. I definitely wouldn’t wear these two items together, but they’d be amazing individually.
Yarn choices? Leave ’em in the comments!
*Houston is not freezing nor does it have mountains, but you catch my drift.
