Xanadu Snowflake Cowl

As you wrap up your holiday gift projects, it's time to think about starting something new just for YOU! This gorgeous new colorwork cowl uses our luxurious cashmere yarn, Xanadu - and you can save big on your yarn for this project during our holiday sale!
This cowl is knit in the round to form a nice, warm tube, which is then grafted together at either end to form an infinity cowl. It's both lightweight and warm, perfect for looping around your neck to fully enjoy the softness of 100% Mongolian Cashmere. You can purchase the Xanadu Snowflake cowl here on Ravelry, and read about it more on the Knitted Bliss blog here.
You'll need just 1 skein of each color, shown above in Mocha (main color) and Natural White (contrasting color). Here are a few more color combinations you may wish to try:
1. Sky & Teal, 2. Red & Mocha, 3. Aqua & Grey, 4. Natural White & Gold.

New Colorways from Miss Babs & Free Holiday IOU Printable

We've added 7 more gorgeous hand-dyed color ways from Miss Babs to our online store! Dyed on our popular fingering weight yarn, Tibetan Dream, each color is available in extremely limited quantities. Now is a great time to snag a few skeins during our holiday sale, where we're offering FREE US shipping & 15% off all regular-priced items with coupon code YULE2015. All orders over $149 will get a $20 gift certificate, too - so buy one for a fiber friend and treat yourself to a skein or two as well!

The Odyssey Cowl by Laura Chau was designed especially with these colors in mind (it's shown below in the Rapids colorway), and we're pleased to announce that this pattern is now available for purchase as a PDF, both here on Ravelry as well as here on our website.  Just 1 skein of Tibetan Dream yarn will make the smaller version of the cowl pictured below, or opt for a longer infinity scarf by knitting the larger version with 2 skeins of yarn.

Our newest colors of Xanadu yarn have also arrived - we're pleased to welcome Aqua, Avocado, Gold and Peach to our palette. We're looking forward to seeing some colorful projects pairing these bright new colors with our existing palette of neutrals: Black, Grey, Mocha and Natural White, plus our vibrant Red, Sky and Teal options.

Consider this your last call for Lilac Xanadu, as this color is now discontinued - so stock up with coupon code YULE2015 to save 15% on your purchase!
Lastly, we want to give our blog readers the gift of less stress this holiday season, so we came up with this festive free printable for an IOU which you can include with a skein of Bijou Basin Ranch yarn for that knit-worthy person on your list!

If you've ever worried about picking out the right pattern or whether or not the finished project will fit the intended recipient, the Project IOU is the way to go: after the holidays, you can knit the pattern you know they'll love (because they helped pick it out) AND you can properly measure and try on for fit as you knit. It's win-win!
