The textured stitch is easy to execute but so much fun to work, and the fading from one color to another is soft and subtle. Add a few wee buttons, and voila! You’ve got a piece you can wear upside-down and rightside-up.

Rainbow Boomerang

One day I was playing around with a deep blue skein of sock yarn and a wee rainbow set of minis. I inserted a rainbow into the middle of the garter-y sweep of a boomerang shawl, and could literally hear my rainbow-loving heart go pitter-patter. Now all I want to do is make Rainbow Boomerangs, other projects be damned. Want …

Uni-horn Magic Shawl

Friendship is magic, and so is this shawl. The shape and colorplay are reminiscent of the horn gracing the forehead of the world’s sauciest unicorn.

Dreamer Mitts

The best part about these mitts is how very versatile they are – use a gradient set of six colors, a rainbow set of six, use two or three colors, or go wild and use a variegated skein that’s been languishing in your stash.

Skittles Scarf
