I’ve been in a bit of a frenzy to finish designing and making the fiery sunset cowl, since so many of you said such kind things about it. I knitted round, and round, and round, so very fast that I was almost flung backwards across the room by the centrifugal forces.
Anyway. It’s done. And I’ve typed up the pattern for you.
But first, a message. Mother Twisted was enormously touched by all your lovely comments about her cathedral window quilting, and she sends you heartfelt thanks. I think she’s still blushing, even now. If you haven’t seen her needlework yet, do take a look, here.
Meanwhile, we have a cowl. Thank you for your name ideas. I’ve decided to go with Louisette’s suggestion of ‘The Hiking Reindeer’.
All this sunsetty stitchery was designed to show off the fiery colours in the new shade of sock yarn in the Head Over Heels range from Stylecraft. The shade is called ‘Etna’.
Amazingly, you only need one ball of ‘Etna’ and one ball of black 4-ply/fingering/sock-weight yarn to make this cowl. If you’re used to stranded knitting and working in-the-round, you’ll be able to knit this up in two shakes of a reindeer’s tail.
So would you like the pattern, for free? Oh all right, then. Here it is: just click on the link below.
(And thank you to Stylecraft for providing the yarn. 🙂 )
