Antonia Shankland’s ever popular Honey Cowl would be stunning out of Folio Luxe. The size is fully adjustable, depending on whether you prefer a shorter cowl or longer infinity scarf. Choose just one color for a subtle look or two colors to highlight the slipped stitch texture.
Amy Christoffers’ Berta Shawl is designed for three skeins of Folio Luxe and is great for lace knitters of all skill levels. Garter stitch is the underlying fabric which means no purling! Everyone needs a squishy, sparkly shawl and this one fits the bill perfectly.
Florence by Emily Nora O’Neil is a simple striped hat with a cute rolled brim. Choose two similar colors like Gemini and Orion for subtle stripes or a more striking combination like Hydra and Pisces for a bolder look.
The Dentelle Cowl by Shara Lambeth is a lovely little crocheted cowl that hugs your neck to provide just the right amount of warmth. One skein is again just enough and the shell stitches would look great with a hint of sparkle.
The Hinagiku Hat by 87knit is a slouchy hat that would complement the drape of Folio Luxe beautifully. A truly starry look would be created as the sparkles knit up into the daisy stitch used throughout. Perfect for shoveling snow or spending a night out on the town, this hat would also transition seamlessly between the two.
The Baby Fan Mitts by Morgan Wolf utilize a simple feather and fan stitch and only require one ball. These are perfect for last minute gifts for family, friends or yourself!
