Caring Cowl Update and KAL
I have been selling my Caring Cowl pattern as a fundraiser for the American Red Cross since 2011. In that time, I have raised and donated $1,875.00! This is a stat that I very proud of—but really all the credit goes to the wonderful folks who purchased the pattern, so thank YOU!
I am delighted to announce that Laura over at knitreadpray.com is hosting a knit-along featuring my Caring Cowl pattern starting today. She will be giving away some prizes at the end including a free pattern from my Ravelry Shop. I hope you will join the fun, and knit for a good cause.
All this attention inspired me to give this old pattern a bit of a facelift. I added some fresh new photos and updated the pdf to include useful web links to video tutorials and the FAQ page. If you purchased this pattern in the past, you should have received a link to download the updated version in your email.
It was kind of weird to compare pictures of myself from now and from 2011. I definitely look a little older, but in a good way, I think! This was my third revamp of this pattern. While the original pattern worked just fine, it's important to me that I continually try to offer a better product if I have the ability to do so. I'm very proud of all my patterns, but especially this one!
