SONY DSC

Design: Bluff Knoll

I don’t get much of a chance to wear beanies here. It’s only cold enough for a brief spell during winter and even then, usually only in the early mornings.

It seems I’ve been a bit lax in showing off my self-published designs. So while the Indie GAL sale is going on, I thought I’d go back through my included designs.   The Pepperberry Cowl is the first pattern I self-published on Ravelry. It’s a fingering weight cowl that uses three colours, but you could use anything from two to as many colours as you want. I happened to have a need for using Madelinetosh 80/10/10 Fingering in Astrid Grey,…
