They Don’t Love You Like I Love You Shawlette

 

3

Introducing the They Don’t Love You Like I Love You Shawlette pattern, fresh off the presses and live on Ravelry if you follow the link. It’s coming soon to my Etsy shop as well.  This is a cheerful shawlette also known as the Love Shawlette. Perfect for brightening up urban landscapes with its bright stripes. I used Rain City Knits Superwash Sock yarn for this project in Natural and Lemon Yellow, and I love the result. Depending on how you block your shawlette, you can have either a triangle or semi-circular shape. Tricky, I know! The pattern is live on Ravelry and will be 20% off through May 1st. Thanks again to everyone who test knit for me, and thanks again to my technical editor.

New Pattern: Granville Hat + Cowl

I’m happy to share that my latest pattern Granville is available for purchase on Ravelry and soon also on Etsy.  Granville features a ribbed brim edge and diagonal lace which slides closed with your favourite ribbon. So, when you untie the ribbon, Granville changes from a slouchy hat to a cowl.

Special thanks go to my tech editor Katherine Vaughan who checks over my patterns and my Ravelry test knitters who did a great job. And thank you also to photographers Krista (of Rain City Knits) and Vasso who got some great pictures of Granville in action.

I hope you’ll try Granville out!

Sage Woodland Hood: New Knitting Pattern

Sage Woodland Hood PDF knitting pattern by The Red Fox and Gown.

I’m excited to announce that the Sage Woodland Hood PDF pattern by The Red Fox and Gown is now available on both Ravelry and Etsy. Ravelry provides an immediate download while with Etsy I will e-mail you the pattern within 24 hours of purchase. I must say I’m amazed to see this in one of the top ‘Hot Right Now’ patterns on Ravelry.

Full view of the Sage Woodland Hood.

I had a great deal of fun designing this bulky knit hood. It was so tough to keep this hush hush while in the development phase because I was keen to share! I wanted something cozy to keep the ears warm and a transitional piece perfect for fall and winter. I can totally see myself wearing this with a vest or over long sleeves while running about town. Or while prancing in the forest like a woodland creature! Or even snuggling down at home (I’m usually cold, okay? Ha.).

The peaked hood has a tassel at the top and a hand sewn toggle closure onto the front. And the adjustable back seam is perfect to custom fit to keep the nape of your neck warm.

What do you think?
