Thank you to all who entered my naming contest! You guys all had some great ideas, and I wish I could name the cowl like five different things, but I had to pick one: Water Skaters, courtesy of Nancy Jo. Hey Nancy! Send me a message on Ravelry (EmilyRingelman) and I will send you some coupon codes for patterns!
So here it is: Water Skaters, a large-scale lace cowl pattern. The lace is both written out and charted, so if you've never knitted from a chart before, you could learn. This pattern is suitable for beginners, but it's interesting enough for knitters of any skill level.
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy, in the color Punky Fuchsia: 180 or so yards. Use any worsted or aran weight yarn that strikes your fancy.
Size: About 8.5 inches tall and 12 inches across. There are notes in the pattern to guide you in making either a taller cowl or a longer one.
As a new-pattern release celebration, the pattern is 40% off for the rest of January! No coupon code needed, just purchase the pattern on Ravelry for the discount.
