Friday Follow-Up: Online Knitting Highlights For The Week of February 29

We may be dreaming about spring, but for many of us winter is still going strong. Here are a few warm winter accessory patterns that are new this week:

  • I love the texture in both of these hats designed by Andrea Mowry. The Rudbeckia Hat uses 2 colours to highlight the texture of the various stitches and the Snoqualmie Hat is shown in a beautiful neutral that also makes the stitch patterns pop.
  • Aspyn by Melissa Schaschwary is a soft and squishy cabled hat that is shown with those adorable fur pom-poms. So cute!

  • Big Jim by Justyna Lorkowska is another large shawl, this one in a dk-weight yarn, that looks comfy and warm. The colour and fringe are an added bonus!

There’s still time to knit one of these great accessories before winter ends. Enjoy!
