Termoautonomo by Alice Twain

A nice cowl by Alice Twain.

I’m still in destash mood, and I managed to make one last woolly item for the season: Termoautonomo, by Alice Twain. I used about 100 g of an unknown DK yarn I had in stash and 3.75 mm needles; I had so much fun knitting it, I immediately cast on another one, in cotton, to keep for myself.


Un bello scaldacollo di Alice Twain.

Continuo con il destash, e sempre in quest’ottica ho realizzato ancora un accessorio di lana, l’ultimo della stagione fredda: Termoautonomo, di Alice Twain. Ho usato circa 100 g di filato DK ignoto che avevo da parte e ferri da 3,75 mm; mi sono divertita davvero tanto a realizzarlo, infatti ne ho immediatamente iniziato un altro, in cotone, per me.

“November Shades”

Well, hello readers!

Today I’d like to show you a new project, a cowl called “November Shades”, whose pattern is available both on Etsy and Ravelry. It’s made once more with Tunisian crochet but this item is worked in the round! TC in the round is lots of fun: you have to work with two strands of yarn and a double-ended hook, so if you’re an absolute beginner it can get tricky, but after a bit of practice it gets really enjoyable. Plus, if you take advantage of the double-ended hook to use two contrasting colors it creates a marvelous effect with pretty little effort.

I’d really like to hear your opinions about this item: I’ll be honest, I’m quite proud of it and how it turned out, so I hope y’all like it as much as I do.

For those interested: pattern is available in English, Dutch and Italian, and I have a promotion going on on Ravelry only with which you can get both this and “Pumpkin Skin” at a reduced price. Coupon code is AutumnROX. Enjoy!
