Knit using 300 yards of Knit Picks Stroll Heather sock yarn. These were a lovely cuff-down pattern to be found here. My only complaint is that when working cuff-down patterns you must always ensure that you have enough yarn to finish and so I never lengthen the cuff as I would if I were knitting toe-up socks. The toe-up design allows you to make the most of your sock yarn in my opinion.

Sand Winds Cowl is a repeating cabled cowl, knitted using approximately 300 yards of bulky weight yarn. The cowl shown in the pictures below has been knitted using Wool of the Andes Bulky in Masala. The finished cowl measures 10 inches wide and 25 inches around when blocked.
This cabled cowl is knitted by using a provisional cast then working the cowl flat and finished using the three needle bind off to create the cowl shape. Alternatively you can CO and BO using your favorite method and seam the ends together to create the cowl shape. Written pattern only.
