Mini Solutions eBook
For those mini or gradient kits we just had to have, but could never find the right pattern for. Here are some Solutions!
The Mini Solutions eBook contains three patterns for two scarfs and one cowl.
Both the Mini Solutions Scarf and the Mini Solutions Two Scarf are written so that you can use varying amounts of minis of different sizes. If you use less yarn then the pattern calls for your scarf will be shorter; more and it will be longer. They're very flexible instructions!
The Mini Solutions Cowl was designed to use up all the leftover bits from all your shawl projects. The asymmetrical cowl is knit on the bias and shaped using increases and decreases making it slightly flexible in the width and depth, leaving you to decide on the colour changes.
