'Handbrake' cowl pattern sales support cancer research

"Let's put the 'Handbrake' on cancer!" is the slogan for a fundraising campaign organized by Dan and Kay Jones, a British couple who knit together and air delightful podcasts from their Darlington, UK, home on YouTube. 100% of the sales from their new unisex cowl knitting pattern, "Handbrake," goes to support cancer research as Dan has recently achieved survivor status. The pattern will cost you less than a cup of coffee! And as of this writing, over 700 have been sold in just a few days into this fundraiser.

"Outlander" inspired knitting and crochet patterns

From cowls to shawls, gauntlets and fingerless mitts, STARZ's Outlander series has inspired many a knitting and crochet designer to write. And most Outlander-inspired patterns use worsted or bulky yarns. A pattern for Claire's shawl on "Outlander" has been published just this week.

Claire's shawl pattern requires 400 yards of worsted weight yarn and uses a US 17 (12mm) needle.
