The Pink Grapefruit Cowl and Mitts pattern is now for sale!! This was the exclusive pattern I developed last spring for the 2011 Tanis Fiber Arts Year in Colour (my month was May).Now that 2011 is over, the pattern is publicly available for $4 (you get both the cowl and mitts patterns together in the download).
Included in the pattern is a video tutorial link on how to 'unravel' the dropped stitches portion, so you can see exactly how it works for the cowl. The mitts include two sizes.
This is my first time adding a not-free pattern to Ravelry, so I wasn't sure how to link both the Cowl and Mitts. If anyone knows of a better way, please let me know!
The cowl is more of a necklace style, and is surprisingly warm and wearable. I know it looks more decorative than warm but somehow it just works and is indeed cozy (although I imagine if you use cotton yarn, not so cozy). I knit it again later that summer in blue, using a full skein (220 yards):
I really love both the cowl and mitts, and I hope you do too!
