Tried this craft? What did you think?

I'm looking for a pattern for a "Magic Scarf" that can convert into a cowl, shawl or even a dress. Can you please supply one for me, and advise on the best yarn to use so that it is soft and 'stretchie' but doesn't shed to badly.

Another great freebie, these scarfs are perfect to plan for spring time knitting as they are nice and light weight. I really like the look of the elegant afternoon scarf which would make a great accessory for an evening function. The patterns look easy to follow and they would also make lovely gifts for a friends birthday

I am looking for a knitting pattern for a hooded shawl, hooded scarf (scoodie), or hooded cowl - I can find lots of crochet patterns, but none for knitting. I just moved to a cold climate and something elegant that is thick, with a hood, is what I'm after. A shawl might work and this one looks elegant but would it work with a thicker wool blend? Thanks!

Have you tried this craft? What did you think?

I bet these would make great spring accessories!



.These are gorgeous. I'd love to have them. I don't knit so I giving to my daughter. Makes me want to learn ...
