    I love the cowl. Where would I find complete instructions? Thanks

    What an amazing amount of info thank you. I love following your blogs and tutorials and am about to spend more time in my next project playing with colours and techniques. I’ve learnt already that playing is the operative word and to put one’s work down and return after a walk in nature when the going gets tough. If you get back to Vancouver Island go look up the Victoria Knitters Guild they are a great bunch of women and Seaside Yarns in Sooke.

    For the cowl, which colorwork pattern was used? I have the strange brew pattern but I can’t tell. I’m guessing the 15 row pattern?

    Those are all so beautiful. I am not experienced enough to try patterns, but you make it look easy! :)
