My Humble Thanks

A little over a week ago I published one of my designs for the first time up to Ravelry. It is the Urban Village Cowl and I am thrilled to say that over 500 people downloaded it the first week. True I had promoted it with a free coupon but I tell you from the bottom of my heart I am so thrilled that so many of you made it part of your library. I look forward to seeing people cast it on and hope you all enjoy knitting it! So, THANK YOU!!!

Of course this wouldn’t be a knitting blog if I didn’t show you some pictures of knitty stuff so…… without further ado I present to you “Amy’s Knitting Bag” and the contents there of.

My First Published Pattern! Urban Village Cowl

I am so excited to announce that I have finally published one of my designs! It is called the Urban Village Cowl

To share my excitement I am offering it free for the next week. Simply use the coupon code urbanfreebie at check out to download this pattern for free. This will expire on February 16 so please go ahead and download.

This design started out as Christmas gift for my Mom a couple of years ago. I had made her a cowl but she didn’t like how it sagged around her neck and created bulk under her coat. To make my Mom super happy (because she deserves it and because it is really cold in upstate NY) I designed a cowl that would lay flat under your coat and has a collar to keep the neck warm. Using a bulky yarn makes it a quick knit. Choose your own style of buttons to give it your own unique look!
