Cobblestone Cowl & Hat Set

Time for another release!  If you have a couple skeins of worsted or dk-weight yarn waiting in your stash for a nice-relaxing winter knit, this might be just the thing you're looking for!

The cowl came about because I had two skeins of Dream in Color Classy yarn waiting in my stash.  I imagined a squishy, textured cowl that could be worn doubled-over for warmth, or long as an infinity scarf.  The brick pattern on the cowl inspired the name.  

Once I was finished with the cowl, I thought I might have enough yarn to make a matching hat.  I was right, but just barely….I had to use the tail I trimmed off for sewing on the buttons.  Not one inch of this yarn was wasted!  If you need to make a size L hat (mine was the M), if your row gauge doesn't match the pattern gauge, or if you want a wider cowl, I'd recommend buying a third skein of yarn.  If you are working from 2 skeins from your stash and want to make both the hat & the cowl, I'd recommend doing the hat first, since the cowl is easy to modify for less yarn.  A couple rows left out isn't going to bother anyone. 

Here in the midwest we've had a crazy winter.  Snowstorm after snowstorm has kept us shoveling our driveways and wondering if the kids will have school.  I'm glad to have knitting as a hobby, as it allows me to see the bright side of freezing weather - perfect for getting to wear all my cozy woolies!

You can find the Cobblestone Hat here and the Cobblestone Cowl here.  Until the end of this week (midnight CST on Saturday, February 8th), I'm running a coupon code through Ravelry only (so sorry, but the other sites I sell patterns on just aren't set up for coupon codes).  If you buy both the cowl and hat patterns you will get one free.  The code is: COBBLESTONESET

If you purchased one of the Cobblestone patterns this week before you saw this offer, send me your Ravelry name and I will "gift" the other pattern" to your Ravelry library. 

Happy knitting!
