We have a new special edition issue of Knitscene Magazine, called Knitscene Easy. It is filled with super easy, super cute projects, like scarves, slippers, and hats. On our website, we have several great kits featuring patterns from this issue. My favorites are the Berroco Blackstone Tweed Scarflet kit, and the Cascade Eco Wool Easy Peasy Slippers kit. The beautiful scarflet is simply a strip of garter stitch which is folded and buttoned at an angle to make a cowl. The slippers are knit from the cuff to the bottom of the sole. The top of the foot is worked in stockinette stitch with YO increases, and the bottom is worked in garter stitch. The best part: one skein of Eco Wool is enough for 4 pairs of slippers!!!
If you are a new knitter who cannot wait to move beyond boring block scarves and dishcloths, this is the magazine for you! Prepare to be proud of yourself when you finish one of these awesome projects!
