Easy Bow Headband
Handmade Fall Fashion Accessories
After you make the Easy Bow Headband take a look at these must-have cool weather accessories from Mary Maxim.
Ombre Cuff Slippers – Knit these adorable slippers with a gorgeous cabled ombre cuff. This is a one of a kind kit from Mary Maxim and comes in 4 gorgeous colors. We recommend using some sock stop to keep from sliding around. These slippers are knit with Mary Maxim Starlette Yarn, one of our softest worsted weight yarns.
Striped Ruana – The Striped Ruana is a perfect lightweight accessory. It’s easy to knit with subtle ribbing and is a great intro into garment making. Pair this with a tank top or turtleneck and transition easily from early fall to winter. Knit the Striped Ruana with Mary Maxim Alpaca Tweed. Our sample is knit with Cool Stream, Grey, and Raw Cotton.
Crossing Paths Cowl – Knit the crossing paths cowl and show off your cables. This impressive cowl is rated as an Intermediate Level Pattern and is a gorgeous cowl to wear with a sweater, a puffer vest, or a jacket. Knit this unique pattern with Mary Maxim Starlette Yarn.
Luxurious and Lacy Wrap – Looking for something super soft and warm for those cool weather days? This wrap is absolutely gorgeous and knit in one long rectangle. The Luxurious and Lacy kit includes Mary Maxim Woodlands yarn. Enjoy the gentle feeling of alpaca and the washability of acrylic!
October Blog Exclusive.
We’ll also be starting our October Exclusive soon. It’s a new twist on the traditional Corner to Corner Technique. Our November 2018 Blog Exclusive has been one of our most popular tutorials where we showed you the C2C technique step by step to make the Candy Cane Throw. In our October 2019 Blog Exclusive, we will add a small twist the traditional C2C technique to create more gorgeous texture and a beautiful graphic seasonal throw.
We will be working our throw with these fall Starlette colors (Black, Cottonwood, Russet, Dark Grey, Starlette Ragg Black) if you wanted to add some to your next shipment from Mary Maxim. A full Shopping List will be available soon.
