Here is a new free pattern for you all. This uses Patons Roving yarn and US 11 needles, so it is a super quick knit.
You will need to know how to knit, knit through the back loop, slip stitches, and slip stitches purlwise through the back loop. This is knit in the round, so you should also be comfortable using circular needles. That said, it is a fairly simple pattern.
I did a video on this stitch pattern back in August of 2012, and have wanted to make something with it ever since. It took a while to get around to it :-)
You can download the pattern for free from my Craftsy store by clicking on the picture below.
I hope you like the cowl! If you make it, feel free to stop by my facebook page and share a picture!
