Solena by Katrin Schubert. On our list to knit! Would use Swans Island DK
A versatile unisex hat and cowl pair, this pattern is great for showing off lovely hand-dyed yarn. The little short row “blips” remind me of a horse stepping high over cavaletti poles and are fun to knit once you get going. The set is knit entirely in garter stitch and it’s written so you do not have to purl any rounds, using a way I developed with an overlapping stitch. Feel free to use your preferred method or to purl every other round if you like that sort of thing.
French knot sheep - I recently finished a sampler which featured sheep made with a variety of stitches - Turkey work, buttonhole, satin - French knots were my favourite, thought bullion knots would probably be great, too.
