(From top to bottom, left to right) This stunning hooded scarf is perfect for those brisk winter evenings. The Aran weight yarn design keeps your neck and shoulders warm and when it is extra chilly you can pull the hood up to protect your head and ears too. I really love this stripped north winds wrap. This bulky wrap is a fun way to play with colour and because it uses chunky yarn is will keep you nice and snug when it is extra cold. The yellow cowl is called is called a warm cider cowl and is perfect for autumnal walks through the leaves or evening bonfires and wassail festivals whilst wrapping your hands around hot apple cider. The green cowl is inspired by the lines of post-and-beam construction and will add texture to any outfit. The bulky yarn used means you can whip this up in a weekend and get instant gratification and warmth. The orange shawl features a repeated triangular design to create this generous project. Worked in a springy worsted-weight yarn, this shawl is a quick and cosy knit, perfect for curling up on a sofa or by a fire.
