These four patterns are included in the 2020 Knitter's Planner.
Good Fortune Cowl
by Francoise Danoy
The colorwork motifs in this cowl are based on traditional Maori taniko weaving designs. These two colorwork patterns are two slightly different takes on the “patikitiki” motif. Patikitiki is Maori for the flounder fish, which represented good fortune and abundance, as this fish was a common food source. Whichever motif you wish to work, may good fortune and abundance come your way when you wear this cowl.
Secret Treasure Shawl
by Meghan Jones
A ”Choose Your Own Adventure” type pattern, this curl-shaped shawl is worked with any combination of 4 stitch patterns that you might like to try. Knit from the top down with double increases every right side row, the vertical column can be worked with either of the openwork patterns and the increase area can be worked with 1, 2, 3, or all 4 increase patterns. Use your new planner to design a shawl that’s totally unique to you!
Retro Kerchief and Mitts
by Angela Tong
This mosaic pattern is a great introduction to colorwork without all the fuss of trying to work with two colors at the same time. You will only be working with one color at a time. The kerchief has an unusual construction. It is worked in the round so that it can be worn easily around your neck. Just slip it over your head and it stays in place. The tassel in the front adds a fun decoration. You will also want to make these matching fingerless mitts for a complete set. Fingerless mitts keep your hands warm but your fingers free.

This slouchy beanie features twisted ribbing leading into cable and rib panels. You have two cables to choose from: the undulating, rounded cables in the hat pictured (Cable 1), or a nested diamond pattern (Cable 2). If slouchy hats aren’t your style, you can make a more fitted beanie by simply eliminating one 12-round repeat.
