Cozy up by the fire with your knitting! Rhythmic stitches playfully dance to the sparks and tune of the crackling fire in Fireside Knits. As a bonus, this long design also serves as a cozy blanket while you knit. Once complete, fear no winter weather because in Fireside Knits you’re free to romp and roam in the deepest snow. For a fashion-forward look, wear it as a cowl. When the winter winds whip, the built-in cowl converts to an ear protecting head covering.

The tech edited and test knit pattern is fully written with a schematic and how-to video. Check out the Stitch in Focus: Alternating Cable Cast On video here along with some additional tips and tricks for Fireside Knits.
