new patterns: good earth cowl and icehouse hat
another bout of insomnia gave me a chance to write up the pattern for a cowl that i knit way back in 2011, when i was pregnant.
the good earth cowl is a great way to use up that worsted weight, self-striping yarn that has been hanging around in your stash for far too long. i used 4 skeins of noro silk garden in color 211 for this one, but you could even skip a repeat or two, if you wanted a shorter cowl, or have less yarn.
this pattern is 25% off for the first week. find it on ravelry here.
and, i've also designed a simple ribbed cap for men, that's a free pattern from blue sky alpacas. the icehouse hat has a simple 1x1 rib with neat decreases and some colorblocking to keep it interesting. you can find it on ravelry here.
