I just wanted to share the good news! Today I have released a free pattern for a short cowl to celebrate the launch of a brand new yarn on Craftsy – Cloudborn Fibres. This is the perfect project for the cold weather we have been having recently. And it knits up quite quickly so if you are still looking for a project for Christmas gifting then look no further!
The Double Dutch Cowl is knitted in aran weight yarn, it is knitted flat and seamed at the end so the construction itself is quite simple. The cable is a little more complicated than some other cables you may have knitted in the past. But once you have got the hang of it you will be knitting away in front of the TV, all nice and cosy whilst the cold weather does what it wants to outside.
And more good news! I have also released a pattern for a headband/earwarmer to match. It is shaped at each end and wider in the front section. It comes in a few sizes so you are bound to find one that you are comfortable with.
The cowl is available as a free download on Ravelry and Craftsy. The Headband is a paid for pattern, also available on Ravelry and Craftsy. They are both available in my Etsy shop, if you buy the headband the cowl comes as a free automatic download with it.
Keep your eyes open over the next few weeks for the matching boot toppers too. They are currently in the testing phase. So as soon as I know the pattern is error free I will be releasing it.
Over the next few days I am going to write a blog post on the stitch pattern used to create this eye catching cable.
