A colourful knitted cowl in citrus colours that is a perfect knitting pattern for mini-skeins

Slice of Sunshine by Lisa K. Ross

So bright, so happy, and designed for Mini-Skeins! If you’re a member of the SpaceCadet’s Mini-Skein Club and love the juicy, zingy colours we’ve been dyeing this summer, I can’t think of a better way to show them off than in this utterly delightful design.

A stranded colorwork cowl, it uses exactly two bundles of Minis plus a full-sized skein for the contrast colour. Even better, it’s 25% off through the end of today with the code SUNNY.

Simmer Blink by Robynn Weldon

Nothing catches my eye faster than patterns that make clever use of colour and this one stopped me in my tracks!

I love the way the balance of brights to neutrals morphs slowly across the shawl so that one end looks completely different to the other (you can see it in this picture, but click through for a better idea). It’s a fabulous way to work through your stash of SpaceCadet Mini-Skeins!

Proud Tee by Chelsea Lee-Keenan

A simple summer tee like this is always bound to be a wardrobe staple. And whether you knit it in rainbow solids or work it in a painterly gradient flow, the result will be intriguing to knit and a delight to wear.

Knit in the round from the bottom up, with German short rows to shape the shoulder, this design is perfect for SpaceCadet Mini-Skeins or fingering weight Gradient Explorers.
