The Oats cowl is the third project in The Simple Collection – a learn to knit series with 8 free patterns and clear tutorials provided by Tin Can Knits. In addition to clearly written patterns, Tin Can Knits has made available a great selection of online tutorials (e.g. How to Cast On (video), How to Knit (video), How to Purl (video), How to Bind Off (Video), How to Knit Your First Scarf, How to Weave in Ends, Basic Blocking)
We think it’s amazing that Tin Can Knits has developed these materials and is making them available free of charge!  And whether you’re a  newbie or a seasoned knitter, we think the Simple Collection patterns will appeal.  Modern, effortless style – especially when knit with beautiful yarns like the Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label used for the Oats cowl pictured above (colourways: Frost & Gold).
