Fall Woods Quilt Squares: Hooded Cowl -- New Pattern Giveaway!

It's a substantial name, but it is a substantial piece, too!  Knitted in super bulky weight yarn, my newest pattern, Fall Woods Quilt Squares: Hooded Cowl, is thick n' rich. If you enjoy a hearty blanket cocooning you as you lay in a hand-hewn pine framed bed at your personal ski lodge in front of the large stone fireplace where a kettle hangs over the flames threatening to squeal with delight at any moment to announce the readiness of your tea, this pattern is for you.

This hooded cowl was designed to lay flat on the chest, so it can easily fit on the inside of a winter coat, or even on the outside of a slimmer fitting one.

The sample shown uses just a bit less than three skeins of Lion Brand Thick & Quick Yarn in Rust. Other yarn ideas include, but are not limited to,Malabrigo Rasta or Rowan Big Wool, Manos del Uruguay Franca... the list goes on and on.

But no matter how much or little your yarn budget may allow, the low yardage and quickness of this knit are sure to delight. Gift giving for Christmas? This hooded cowl would qualify as a moderately quick knit, taking approximately 6-8 hours to make, according to my fabulous testers.

If you pop on over to my Ravelry Store right now and use the coupon code: FWQS upon check-out of this pattern, you can have it for free. That's right: absolutely free.



Imagine: your very own piece of fantasy ski lodge cozy for free. Oh, and one more thing ... there's a rumor going around that this hooded little number may double as chain mail. I hear it may have actually saved a woman's life during a sword battle.

I can't back that story up, but it doesn't mean it isn't true.

Enjoy from now till September 15th.

Thank you for the lovely pattern! My mom was standing behind me when I got the pattern and she's already picking out the yarn for hers! (Although I'm knitting it, and I think probably for my sister as well).

That pattern is fan-tastic! I look forward to casting on when I'm no longer chained to other projects --- and I really like the way your write. I need more knit-centric reading in my life!
