A Road Less Traveled By Mary E. Jacobs

Mary E. Jacobs comes up with a unique approach to avoid the pooling common to variegated yarns. Using Blue Moon Fibers Arts SINGLE SILKY TARGHEE, she works it from the inside out; that is, with the non-public side facing the knitter. Knit in the round, this allows the knitter to get the Reverse Stockinette without the doldrums of purl after purl after purl. Adding in a column of twisted stitches helps to further mottle the pooling, giving the eye nice strong vertical lines to follow. Now, even when pooling is uneven, the harshness of it is softened.

Zick Zack Fingerless Mitts By Heather Storta

Using slip stitches and cables, the diagonal weave pattern in these mitts has the perfect texture and density to keep out the chill. This is a great pattern to try out cabling without a cable needle. The yarn is Miss Babs Keira.

Green Aspen Arm Warmers By Arenda Holladay

These arm warmers use the Garter Stitch Basketweave pattern from the Stitch Anatomy article. Since the arm warmers are worked in the round at the beginning/end of round, the pattern requires a minor modification .
