Designer Tanis Gray loves the challenge of designing and knitting complex patterns that use intricate stitch patterns and inventive techniques, but she also enjoys creating simple knits that are simple-to-knit, easy-to-wear staples.
In her new book, Cozy Knits, Tanis reached out to her favorite designers and asked them to contribute a design to the collection, and along with Tanis's designs, Cozy Knits is the ultimate gathering of quick and, yes, cozy knits that are fun to knit.
All of the designs in Cozy Knits are made up with Cascade Yarns Pacific family of yarn, in the worsted-weight and chunky varieties. I've used Pacific, and it knits up soft and
smooth; perfect for cable knitting or anything with a texture. It really
shows off the stitches nicely.
Here are some of my favorite projects from the book:
Pretty nice, right?
Cozy Knits has projects for every skill level, too. If you're just beginning knitting, you'll will find patterns you can start knitting right away, you intermediate knitters will find lots of new-to-you techniques to try, and advanced knitters, you won't be bored; there are some fabulous colorwork patterns to challenge you.
We love the designs so much that we decided to put together kits of
the yarn used, Cascade Pacific, so you can knit any number of the
projects that are knit with worsted-weight yarn. We have a green kit, a blue kit, a gray kit, and a purple kit. Each kit comes with a copy of Cozy Knits, plus three balls of yarn in different shades of the kit's color.
Get one of our kits today, and start knitting one of these beautiful patterns. If you're in need of some gift knits, this is perfect!
P.S. What's your favorite cozy knit? Mine is a soft cabled cowl that I knit several years ago. Leave a comment below and share your cozy goodness with us!
