There's lovely accessories from this week's designer, each with eye-catching texture.

Here's just three:

The Carver Scarf (pictured) is one of Katinka's most recently published designs. I'm a great proponent of scarves, though I know many people aren't super keen on them. But check out this one! It's got such great surface texture, adding visual interest to a piece that could easily be unisex.

Her Emmeline Wrap is designed with knitting and wearing ease and comfort in mind. Worked from tip-to-tip, there are never too many, cumbersome stitches on the needle. You also get the pleasure of seeing that lace border block out, and turn into gently rolling waves of yarnny texture!

And finally, get a look at her Pollina Cowl. This is a tall, slouchy cowl (one of my favourite types!) in a fingering weight. It uses attractive leaf texture and beading to make this one classy cowl indeed!

Katinka has very kindly offered a coupon for all Canary Knits readers! Now through the end of July you can get 30% off all patterns in her Ravelry store with the coupon code CANARY.
