Leaving the hustle and whirl of city life behind, the familiar pleasures of small town life seem sweeter than ever. She settles into a cosy, picture book cottage with gingerbread trim, and immediately starts making friends with the locals. Of course, there’s also the town busybody to contend with, and there might be a heartless, rich old miser who is trying to shut down the family business, with the holidays just around the corner. But our heroine never lets anything keep her down for long. Optimism, a warm heart, and at least one batch of cupcakes will take her far.
The Rose Cottage Cowl is a gentle knit, as comfortable and welcoming as a rom-com cottage. The Rose Cottage Cowl features a handsome braid cable panel against a background of stockinette stitch for a minimalist modern twist on a traditional design motif. And the lovely Aran weight yarn means that this piece knits up in a flash, even if you’re new to knitting cables. It’s a wonderful gift that suits just about everyone: knit one for yourself and then more for your family and friends!
