A Stitch in Time – Shawl & Cowl


3 skeins, 2 styles. These lacy colorwork designs are bound to delight. With the functionality of using up a full 3 skeins, there’s no stress of what you’ll do with the left-over yarn, which is one of my pain points for sure.

Props to Cheryl of Hypnotic Yarns for the name! She won our Instagram naming contest for this fun design. When Lindsey, Janie, and I were picking a name A Stitch in Time was on all three of our lists. ♥

Worked flat, A Stitch in Time contains written directions, charts, and is broken down into comprehensive sections. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used and a handy-dandy progress tracker to help you keep track of your row and stitch counts.

Worked in the round, A Stitch in Time Cowl consists of both written directions and charts. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used and each section is broken down by the amount of yarn used so you’ll be able to grab some scraps and get creative with your colors! Always love a chance to use up some mini skeins of left-over bits and pieces!

A Stitch in Time is available in English.
