With all the incredible self-striping and hand-painted yarns out there, sometimes I think we overlook the beauty of monochromatic texture. The Tumble Weave Beanie & Cowl were designed as quick projects that any knitter can make.
The designs’ main “basket weave” stitch features simple knits and purls that create a checkboard pattern. Instructions are both written and charted, featuring an 8-stitch repeat. Skills required include working in the round on a circular needle, decreasing, and working ribbing.
The beanie and cowl can be knit with just one skein of RUFF+TUMBLE DK* each (you need 2 skeins to knit both), which is a super versatile, easy-to-care-for yarn with a slightly fuzzy texture for a rustic look.
Available as a Digital Download (PDF format). Contains both the beanie and cowl patterns.
