"Montana Mountain Cowl" by Andrea Mowry @dreareneeknits

This eye-catching Moebius cowl makes colorwork a snap since your floats are hidden inside--yay!  Knit on size US 5 (3.75mm) needles, the cowl knits up quickly using the Mosaic method to add color and texture to your piece.

Finished measurements are 10 in (25.5cm) high with a circumference of 29 in (73.5cm).  You'll need 1 skein each of 2 contrasting colors of Sweet Sock to complete your cowl.  Another great choice is to use one skein of Sweet Sock for your main color and two skeins of Spincycle Dyed in the Wool for your contrast color. The pattern is available on Ravelry.


"Slippy V Triangle" by Stephen West @westknits

Stephen West never disappoints in the shawl department!  And this one is no exception!  Knit sideways with fingering yarn and incorporating eyelets, slip stitches and textured ribbing, this triangular shawl is knit with size US 5 (3.75mm) needles with finished measurements of 66 in (168 cm) wingspan length and 33 in (84cm) center point depth.  

You will need 2 skeins of Sweet Sock for your main color and 1 skein for your contrast color.  If you choose to use Spincycle Dyed in the Wool for your contrast color, you will need 1 skein to complete your shawl.  The pattern is available on Ravelry.


"Stillwater Socks" by Summer Lee @summer.lee.knits

We just love the mock cable detail traveling along the simple textured panel of this sock. With charted and written instructions, you'll sail along from the cuff down on your socks that are available in sizes small through extra-large.

Knit with size US 1 (2.25mm) needles, you'll need just one skein of Sweet Sock for a solid-colored pair of socks. If you want to add contrasting toes and heels, check out our Sweet Sock minis--one mini is all you'll need. The "Stillwater Socks" pattern is available on Ravelry.  


"Hip N' Slip Hat" by Ross Taylor @twisted.ambitions.yarn

This fun and fashion-forward hat knits up quickly holding two strands of fingering yarn or one strand of DK yarn on size US 6 & 7 (4-4.5mm) needles. The color choice possibilities are nearly endless if you choose to marl your colors as Ross did in his sample. 

This hat will be fabulous holding any of Ross' speckled or semi-solid colorways double-stranded. One skein is all you need! Or, as Ross did with his hat, you can select one skein of Sweet Sock and 3 Sweet Sock minis to knit your hat. Or, if you want to go with the DK version, you'll need one skein of Wicked DK. The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry.
