Pippi: Holla Knits Fall/Winter Accessories Collection 2013

Since the winter months can be somewhat dreary, I love designing knits that brighten the spirits. That's why I'm so excited to introduce Pippi, from the Holla Knits Accessories Collection 2013! I was thrilled to work with Allyson because her collections have a quirky and fun style. Pippi is quirky and fun too! Pippi was named after Pippi Longstocking, because she's strong, confident, and has funky pig tail braids that stick out. The braids and tassels of the scarf are carefree and fun, just like Pippi!

Pippi actually started as a totally different accessory (stay tuned in 2014!) and evolved into a chunky, cozy, cable-y scarf that hugs you when you wear it. I'm a sucker for sinking my needles into some chunky yarn with a project that gives some instant gratification (knit-ification?).

Pippi is knit up with braided cables, while increasing and decreasing to create the shape of a stole. Braided tails are added at the ends, with poofy tassels to top it off. Wrap it around twice and tie it with fun braided tassels for a cowl, or toss it around your neck and let the tassels hang long.

  1. I'm thinking this would look adorable in Yellow and Grey!! A little bit of sunshine amongst the Grey of winter

  2. This pattern is sooo cool! I'm thinking of turquoise and coral for a nice pop of color during the winter months :)

  3. Love it! Love fast chunky patterns.

  4. Pippi would look great in grey and scarlet!
