About this pattern and the series:

My friend Jeanne doesn’t like hats. She lives in a cold climate, though, and even though she won’t wear a hat, my bet is that her head gets cold once in awhile.

This cowl is for Jeanne. It’s warm and cozy and almost quilted to keep in little pockets of warm air. It’s a simple and fun stitch pattern to knit, and it’s reversible for different moods. The large size will wrap around Jeanne’s neck and over her head to keep her warm and cozy, and the smaller size is just perfect for a little neckwarmer. She can wear it to work or out shopping, and it will look great with her play clothes or with a nice fall or winter coat. She wears a lot of shawls too, and this will give them the perfect little boost in warmth.

Welcome to year four of my subscription series (now complete)! The idea for my first ebook subscription (year one: the pleiades) was born in 2010 while reading posts on Ravelry: people knitting 10 shawls in 2010. I decided to design and knit 10 shawls that year, and at the time I released my first subscription, I had 7 left to do. I reached my goal that year, and the next year I was back for more challenge. After that, I realized that I simply love doing these subscriptions. I won’t even pretend that there’s any other reason to do them! 7 is one of my favorite numbers, and so I am still doing 7 small (and not so small) shawls with 3 (my other favorite number!) accessories thrown in.

When we reached 5,000 people this year, we had a little contest in my Ravelry forum, and so the Year 4 shawls are named after 7 winners, and the accessories are named after…well, you’ll see! I am so looking forward to getting to know the winners a little bit more and coming up with the perfect design for each of them!

The patterns for this eBook will be delivered to subscribers within a subscription period ending March 30, 2015. There is no specific delivery time for each pattern. Patterns will have charts and written instructions, and you will be able to make them out of one skein of sock yarn or an amount of sock yarn comparable to that needed for a pair of socks. Some will be two colors, and maybe even three! But you won’t need more than one skein of any color. There will be a few little extras sprinkled throughout and all patterns will be available to purchase separately!

Note that purchasing the eBook represents a significant discount over purchasing each pattern separately. No refunds can be given for buying the patterns separately and then, at a later date, purchasing the complete eBook. If you have made a single pattern purchase in error and wished to purchase the book instead, please contact me within a week to resolve the issue. Thank you!
