Pink Grapefruit Cowl and Mitts are now LIVE!!

DSC_1056-16


The Pink Grapefruit Cowl and Mitts pattern is now for sale!! This was the exclusive pattern I developed last spring for the  2011 Tanis Fiber Arts Year in Colour (my month was May).Now that 2011 is over, the pattern is publicly available for $4 (you get both the cowl and mitts patterns together in the download).
Included in the pattern is a video tutorial link on how to 'unravel' the dropped stitches portion, so you can see exactly how it works for the cowl. The mitts include two sizes.

This is my first time adding a not-free pattern to Ravelry, so I wasn't sure how to link both the Cowl and Mitts. If anyone knows of a better way, please let me know!

The cowl is more of a necklace style, and is surprisingly warm and wearable. I know it looks more decorative than warm but somehow it just works and is indeed cozy (although I imagine if you use cotton yarn, not so cozy). I knit it again later that summer in blue, using a full skein (220 yards):

I really love both the cowl and mitts, and I hope you do too!

I will be making (attempting to make) this pattern for my first ever KAL! I am very much looking forward to it. I just ordered the yarn and hope it arrives in time to make the KAL deadline, but, no matter--I will make it regardless. Beautiful pattern.

I remember loving this pattern when I saw it -- in both colors/versions. Looking forward to knitting it in the coming year.

Wow, what a gorgeous pattern! I can't believe how well the pink suits you with your hair colour, but it looks perfect :-)

They are beautiful and unique designs! I especially love the cowl...probably drawn to it because it DOES seem more decorative...very stylish! I particularly like the blue version! Congrats!

The scarf in particular is very cool, as a novice knitter and crocheter I'm only just starting to think about (my dream of) designing my own patterns. This set is certainly something to aspire to.
