"My brother's favorite hat" by Annelene Evensen

Knit with two strands of Sweet 16 held together to achieve a DK weight, Mitzi had her husband model her son's hat--now he wants one too!  It took 1-1/2 skeins of Sweet 16 to knit the hat, so 3 skeins will get you 2 hats!!!  

Knit on size US 6 (4mm) needles with a long tail tubular cast on (video tutorial link provided), the hat flies by quickly once you get cast on. The free pattern is available on Ravelry.

"Forza Scarf" by Laura Nelkin @lauranelkin

One-skein pattern alert! “Everyone needs one of these - in all the colors!” Mitzi enthused.

On a whim, and wanting to play with our new, exclusive and ultrasoft “Sweet 16” non-superwash merino from Urth, Mitzi worked up a “Forza Scarf” by Season 2 Star Laura Nelkin.

The designer calls this pattern “your gateway drug to unexpected but simple lace techniques!” Worked in two halves and grafted in the center, this single sided lace scarf will teach you the intricacies of working shaped lace, integrated i-cord edging and reading a chart.
