We have a lot of patterns for you in this issue!
Texture – we have the Falkland Gansey scarf and the Double or Nothing scarf
Shawl (top down) – take a look at the White Queen’s Shawl. Since it’s knit top-down you can use up all your yarn.
Illusion Heart crochet – great to try Tunisian crochet!
Crochet muff – flexible sizing perfect for your first crochet project or as a gift.
Geode Ruby – a cowl is a great choice for your first colorwork. Gauge and stretch aren’t critical. Just pick two colors with good contrast and go. Having trouble selecting colors? Use our post on selecting colors so you get the most out of your choice.
Hats – Make up the Gatehouse hat in one color or two. Try your hand at the Pastilles hat – use a MC and a few odds and ends. Or knit up Paw Prints – great for your next stranded project.
Elizabeth’s Tulips Hood and cowl – fun to crochet and a little girl gets a useable, buttoned cowl and hood when you’re done. Her parents will thank you for keeping her warm and the buttons help it stay on.

The Aurora cowl combines two colors with a slip stitch pattern. Although they’re mixed, you’re never knitting with more than one color at a time. Take a look at our tutorial on slipped stitches too.
Want to try your hand at Brioche? Our Belle Epoque cowl makes a great choice. And we’ll be publishing a tutorial on brioche stitch in case you need it.
