November Pattern of the Month and new classes!

Available November 1st to November 30th as the Island Yarn’s Pattern of the month.  

This scarf was born out of that crazy need to tweak everything.  After making a Clapotis, I just couldn’t leave well enough alone and had to create a cabled version.  The hat is a bonus for those who love to match.  It uses 3 balls of Queensland Collection Kathmandu DK (2 for Main Color, 1 for contrast in hat).  This pattern is free through the month of November (or while yarn supplies last) with the purchase of suggested yarn, which is 3 balls of Queensland Collection Kathmandu DK .
