La Belle et La Bête cowl kit

Celebrate the classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast, with a luxurious cowl kit.

The yarn for this kit is front and center: a beautiful cowl-length self-striping set created for us by Must Stash Yarns and debuted at Stitches West 2017. 

The cowl, Tale as Old as Time, takes advantage of one of the simplest and most enjoyable ways to knit with self-striping yarn: stockinette stitch in the round. Enjoy the magic of color changes that happen automatically, encouraging you to knit just one more stripe. While a stockinette tube cowl can easily be knit without a pattern, I've devised several simple strategies to make the finishing work as easy as the knitting, so your kit includes a PDF pattern.

Choose between a simple yarn and pattern kit, or luxuriate in your memories of this romantic tale with a luxe kit.

  • Pattern PDF and Ravelry code

  • Self-striping yarn to knit a single or double loop (pictured) cowl, with two separate 12-stripe sequences

Just received my kit a couple of days ago, and I loved everything. Especially the yarn, which is not only beautiful, but is also very very soft.
