Is This Love

Do you love a quick knit? If so, this is the pattern (or patterns, because it's 2 in 1!) for you!

The Is This Love cowl & wrist warmer set are knit up using super bulky yarn, so they fly off the needles. This makes it such a gratifying knit! You cast on with your morning coffee & by lunch time you have a finished product! It's kind of like when you write something you have already done on your to-do list just so you can cross it off! Don't judge, you know you do it too! Sometimes we just need a win, an accomplishment that we can say, IT'S DONE!

The Inspiration

I've been really trying to give my yarn stash some love & use what I have instead of purchasing more. I loved the simplicity of the stitch and wanted to showcase it on a big chunky yarn. I love how stitch patterns can look so different on different yarn weights, don't you?

So, I went stash diving and found this yarn leftover from another project & thought it was perfect!

The Yarn

I used Lush Alpaca by Loops & Threads in the colorway Pink for this project.

Like I said, it was left over from another project, & a small project like this is perfect for using up stash yarn.

Lush Alpaca by Loops & Threads

80% Acrylic 20% Alpaca

86 yds/4oz/79m/113g

I used 2 skeins to make both the cowl & wrist warmers

The alpaca makes this yarn super soft & have a slight halo, but any bulky or super bulky yarn would work just as great.

The Pattern

When you purchase the pattern, you get instructions for both the cowl as well as the wrist warmers in one PDF.

The cowl is knit in the round on size 15 (10mm) circular needles and the wrist warmers are knit using the same needles and the magic loop method. DPNs could also be used.

Easy to remember pattern consisting of just knit & purl stitches, so great for an advanced beginner.

Both knit in one piece, so no seaming necessary, just weave in the ends & wear!

I hope you love it as much as I do. I love to see your finished projects so please share them on Instagram & use the #isthisloveknit
