New Canaan is a worked-in-the-round infinity style cowl with instructions for 5 different yarn weights: Fingering, Sport, DK, Worsted or Bulky. So you can use any yarn you would like with this pattern! New Canaan is simple enough that you can enjoy it while you are watching a movie or sitting with your knit group, but because of the texture stitch pattern it will still keep you interested. It's also a good pattern if you are a beginner because it includes YouTube videos, including one that shows you how to "join to work in the round" (in case this is your first in-the-round project). Sample in photograph is the sport-weight version using The Fibre Company's Road to China Light (and it only took 2 skeins).

I’m Elizabeth Smith and designing knitting patterns is my passion. I strive to create simple, modern designs and write patterns for them that are easy to follow and fun to knit. Most of my patterns are seamless and many are knit from the top-down. They are written with the beginner knitter in mind, providing lots of detailed instructions. I provide pattern support for all my designs so feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions-I love to help and make sure my customers enjoy the knitting process (not to mention the finished piece!)
