Notes From the Designer, Jane Vanselous:
•For knitters who are looking to expand their skills, I think that cables are a great technique to learn. Simply a way to rearrange the order in which stitches are worked, cables provide a big impact without needing to work any difficult stitches. When the cables are comprised of reversible stitch patterns, very interesting effects may be achieved on both sides of the piece.
•Contains both written and charted directions.
•This unisex pattern provides instructions for a hat, cowl, scarf and fingerless gloves. Choose one, or make them all. Perfect for any adult or teen on your gift giving list.
•They are all two sided, providing very different looks when you reverse them. Make 4 pieces that feel like 8! I hope you enjoy both knitting and wearing them!

I am using this pattern to make cowls as holiday gifts. The cowl pattern is very easy and straightforward. Maybe next year I'll make a set of the hats!
Excellent pattern, I have not started it yet but having read the pattern it looks very straight forward.
Very special and effective pattern
Very special and effective pattern
Really beautiful pattern. I love it really much. Thank you!!!!❤
Briarpatch knit pattern is really beautiful and great for learning. Im a beginner with patterns, i started with the scarf which is good for beginners. I like that its reversible, as i prefer a simple pattern for myself and something more elegant for gifts.
Thank you for a simplified pattern that is so versatile!!
I love this pattern, I have finished 1/2 of the scarf and one fingerless glove. The pattern is easy to follow and very clear.
Haven't made it yet but I love the scarf in this pattern. Pattern looks very clearly written and easy to follow.
Great project for Christmas gifts
Lovely...a great project for Christmas gifts
About a third of the way done making this and have loved every minute of it so far...will definitely make again.
like the style of the hat
This pattern is hard to follow, and even the directions can't help me settle the issues I am having with it. I was hoping to use this pattern quite a bit as it looks beautiful, but sadly I don't think that I will be able to.
Thank you very much for this beautiful « two in one » pattern; the cowl is already on my needles. Very clear explanations ; don’t forget to put a second marker after 72 stitches and repeat the pattern.
A wonderful pattern:) Looking forward to casting on!
J’aime vraiment vos patrons. Très clairs et assez détaillés. J’ai réalisé plusieurs châles. C’est mon dernier projet en cours . J’adore
I have only just ordered the wool but as soon as it arrives, I will do a swatch and after that is sorted, I will go ahead. The pattern downloaded very easily and I just enjoy Chandi's upbeat attitude and sense of humour, she is a great and you are very lucky to have her.
I'm looking forward to doing these patterns up in worsted from my stash. I like the simplicity of the design.
Love the patterns I have got from you
I think I will love to make this. I might even turn the scarf into a cowl.
I love your patterns. Thank you so much.
Great unisex pattern. Can’t wait to work on it.
Great pattern. The directions are clear and easy to follow.
Love the pattern. Looking forward to making for gifts
My boys like this pattern. So finally I can knit them something they will actually wear. Thank you very much.
Have not had a chance to use this pattern but will before Christmas. Have a son-in-law and 2 grandsons it will be perfect for
Love the cables and elegant look of this design
Yet another lovely pattern by Jane Vanselous! I tested the cowl and the hat and just loved making them! If you like cables, this is your pattern! If you’ve never tried them, you should definitely give it a go!
