Pattern Description:

When I first saw a skein of this beautiful shining golden Shibui yarn, I had a vague idea of a small Art Nouveau inspired knitwear series. And so I designed the Muk [pronounced mook] accessory set while pondering what the women in the pictures by a Czech painter of the epoch, Alphonse Mucha, would wear in winter. Surely something whimsical with playful and delicate, yet clear-cut lines as featured in this small Muk collection.

The three items in the set - a scarf, a hat and cuffs - are rather straightforward projects. Even so, each piece uses a not all too common technique: The scarf features an I-cord selvedge, the hat uses a purled centred decrease, and the cuffs start with a provisional cast-on on waste yarn. Guided by the tutorials in the Appendix, you may learn something new while working on fun and relaxing knits.

My name is Jana Huck. I live in Luebeck, Germany. I started knitting when I searched for something that I still could do while being sick and it has become a passion. I almost started designing right from the beginning as I had no patience for following directions. I always need a challenge when I knit. I love to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. Then ...
