NEW FREE PATTERN || FARBE COWL!

Who's in the mood for a new free pattern? Yay! I'm so excited to show you all the FARBE Cowl!



DOWNLOAD THE FREE FARBE COWL PATTERN

It's been getting pretty cold over here on Vancouver Island and I've been craving a new super chunky cowl! I adore color blocking and thought it would be fun to whip up a new free pattern for you all showcasing just that!

The FARBE Cowl is warm & cozy, fast to knit up and adds a great pop to your fall/winter wardrobe! It's also a great beginner pattern! You can access the FREE download for FARBE on Ravelry, in our VeryShannon Shop or via direct download HERE.



I love the combo of black and white and think it pairs so nicely with my winter wardrobe. The FARBE Cowl would look great in so many color combos! You could add some fun stripes or a 3rd color! Lots of options for you to add your special touch to your FARBE Cowl.  It's knit up in a super bulky weight yarn on large needles for a nice drape and it works up in just a few hours! Can't beat that during gift giving time!

If you're a beginner knitter don't be scared of FARBE. This is literally plain knitting but you get to learn 2 new techniques that are a great asset for any knitter's skill set - the Provisional Crochet Cast-On and the Kitchener Stitch. Both look way harder than they are and once you try them you will find yourself using them all the time. They allow you, in this pattern, to knit flat so you can customize how long/wide you'd like your cowl to be and then seam your ends easily and invisibly when you are done. The free pattern includes visual links to learn how to implement both of these techniques.

I was so excited & thankful to have my lovely friend Rebecca (of the blog Nook) to be my model for me again. You may recognize her from both the Lansbury and Mallory cowl patterns. She's one of the fastest knitters I know! She's a hard working product and sample knitter and a sweetheart! We drove down to one of my fave beaches for this photoshoot. I owe her one as it was freezing cold out that day! The sun was out and it sure was gorgeous but darn was it cold! Good thing she was wearing the FARBE Cowl!

I hope you all enjoy this new pattern and I can't wait to see "your" version of the FARBE Cowl! Bring on the color blocking! What yarn/color combos will you use for your FARBE Cowl? Don't forget to use #farbecowl on social media to tag your projects!

CAMILLE HOODED COWL || NEW PATTERN!!

It gets pretty darn windy where I live.  Wind storms blow regularly and I swear it chills me to the bone.  It also rains a lot so being a coastal gal we dress in layers and we love our accessories.  Since my oldest started kindergarten I do a lot of standing around outside for pick up and drop off.  Most of the time I curse the fact that I don't have a hood.  Sometimes I like to wear my fave leather jacket with a yummy cowl and then wouldn't you know it - bye bye sun, hello rain.  There goes mommas hair.

Being a bit of a scattered mom at times (aren't we all here and there) I never seem to have an umbrella and I find myself longing for a hooded cowl.  It would solve all my issues.  Be quick to make, suit many different weights of yarn, be warm, squishy and look great with all my layers :)  Best of all it keeps my hair in tact and my ears toasty.  Bring it on mother nature.

Knit up in delicious madelinetosh chunky yarn in colorway tern (love) on a big needle this is a quick 1-2 kind of evening project.

camille is a cozy & oh so comfy hooded double wrap infinity cowl knit in a lofty oblique rib pattern with warm chunky yarn.  It also would look equally lovely in a super bulky, aran, or worsted.  Quick to knit, with a fun construction this cowl involves no picking up of stitches. Camille is knit in the round and knit flat with a simple seamed hood.

One of my fave features of camille is that you never get cold back neck syndrome.  With the hood feature and the double wrap cowl your neck is always fully covered no matter if the hood is down or up.  I always get that draft between my cowl and top and this cowl keeps me nice and toasty. 

The pattern is easy to memorize and is a fun project to pop in your purse and carry with you.  It also makes a wonderful gift because it's a) awesome b) fast to knit up and c) a great project to splurge on some dream yarn without breaking the bank.  I can see many more camille's in my future.

Named after my sister Camille who loves a hood as much as i do (which is a lot). We just love to curl up all cozy with a nice warm hood. Camille is also a good project for an experienced beginner who is looking to take on a project that's more difficult than a basic cowl but also still fun for an advanced knitter to whip up with some dream yarn.

I hope you all enjoy making and wearing this fun, squishy cowl as much as i do.  happy knitting from my home to yours!

I'd love to hear your thoughts! What do you think? Have you worn a hooded cowl before?  Let's chat yummy knits ladies!  

p.s. Thanks in advance to the lovely jane richmond for modeling for me! luv ya hun!
