Perfect east to knit cowls to enjoy making on your “coffee break” or any moment to calm the day and relax. Includes pattern for the Accordian Cowl and the “Layered Look” Cowl. The Coffee Time Cowl Collection is inspired by taking moments in the day to create something special for yourself or someone you care about. I wanted to design an easy to knit cowl that can dress up any wardrobe. You can use a variety of yarns to achieve your own style. A nice relaxing design and pattern to knit during your coffee time or anytime you have a spare moment in the day.
Examples of the yarns you can use include Malabrigo Mecha which was used in the pictures below ( malabrigoyarn.com). On the pictures above I used SweetGeorgia Yarns (sweetgeorgiayarns.com) Chunky weight on the layered look cowl and 2 worsted weight yarns of different types together on the Accordian Cowl with the button.
Chunky weight, for each scarf you need: 1 skein approximately 115 yds or 105 m in length in gauge below. Any chunky weight yarn can be used I also used Sweetgeorgia Yarns Superwash Six hand painted merino wool. Works great using 2 strands of worsted weight yarn with similar results, slightly bigger as shown in pictures on the back.
Gauge for Chunky weight yarn: 3.5 stitches wide by 4.5 stitches tall in a 1 inch square done in stocking stitch.
Needle Size: Round, I used a 6 mm or US 10, 24 inches long.
A collection of elegant rose inspired designs including 3 styles of scarves and 2 lengths of hand/arm warmers. The Elegant Rose collection is a great addition to any wardrobe and can be made with beautiful neutrals as shown or add colour with the base one colour and the flowers and leaves another. See more information or to purchase on my Etsy store. Etsy store: www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com
For the Elegant Rose Collection I used beautiful yarn from Sweetgeorgia Yarns in the worsted weight yarn. Most other worsted weight yarns will work for this design. Try a hand painted effect with solid coloured roses to pop the floral accent or a beautiful neutral colour as shown for an elegant touch. The inspiration for these designs is a walk through a rose garden enjoying a beautiful warm day and to keep these memories near to warm you on the colder days of winter. The design on the base of the pieces is inspired by the stone tracery of Gothic Architecture of the past on beautiful cathedrals and buildings. These buildings were often embellished with beautiful stone tracery of leaves, flowers and vines. I love adding an architectural essence to my designs.

With Fall just ending in my neck of the woods as we have already had several dustings of snow I wanted to share one of my recent weaving projects with the essence and colours of the autumn season. These are a set of 4 mug rugs I made with my loom perfect for making mug rugs. I like to make seasonal sets for my family so we can each enjoy the beautiful colours and patterns I have woven.
For this Fall set I chose SweetGeorgia Yarns Party of Five mini skeins in the Harvest colour way to add that special autumn colour to each piece. Each mug rug is done in different stripe combinations to add interest. I love making mug rugs for those I love. It is a very soothing and relaxing way to use your yarn bits and left overs or buy a set of mini skeins and off you go to create your own special mug rugs for those you care about or want to thank.
I hope you are inspired to learn something new today. I starting learning to weave a year ago and I have to say I am so addicted to this new adventure with fibre. I will continue to post more of my designs and weaving journey here so come along for the ride and follow my blog. Who knows where it will take you! Happy fibertastic day!
