Any Which Way Scarf
   (Lesson One) designed by Brigitte Elliott
By using a variegated Schoppel Wolle: Zauberwolle  and a solid yarn,  Zitron:  Lifestyle  the sculpted fields are created from the right and wrong sides of the fabric.

Purple Rain Pillow 
(Lesson Two) designed by Brigitte Elliott
The fabric is knitted as a square; however, it can be shaped over a purchased pillow and manipulated to create an interesting design.  Furthermore, when continuing the "pattern" following the rules of knitting this technique, one
can create a wrap or shawl.  The solid yarn is Kraemer:  Fountain Hill  and the variegated is Universal:  Classic Shades

Midnight Madness Shawl
designed by Brigitte Elliott
There are 58,550 stitches in this elegant shawl knitted in sock weight yarns.  The shawl was constructed from the center by first loading over 400 stitches wiith a provisional cast on.  Once half of the shawl was complete, the center stitches were picked up to create the other side--a mirror image.  What is even more amazing is that it was a great stash-buster.  A sequins laced thread Annie Blatt: Paillette adds light-catching sparkle to the shawl.  Schoppel Wolle: Zauberball yarn was the primary yarn in variations of black and gray to ivory.

Kick Back Cowl designed by Brigitte Elliott
A variegated soft wool yarn, Austermann:  Murano, and a fuzzy mohair yarn Kraemer:  Fountain Hill were used to create this casual collar for warmth and for adornment.  The ruffle creates a drape-y effect which can also be enhanced with a decorative pin to give the cowl a little glamor.
