Please note that this subscription’s completion is delayed due to an extra ration of craziness.
Note: If you wish to buy the eBook app for iDevices, please do so before you buy the eBook subscription here! There is a code inside the app to purchase the pdf eBook for $5.
If you want the PDF eBook file only as in past years (and you are not interested in purchasing the app), it is available here on Ravelry for $20. The single pattern PDF is available for $6.50.
If you are interested in purchasing the app: note that the patterns will all be included in the app and you do not need to purchase the Ravelry PDF separately if you do not wish. If you want the app plus the PDF in your Ravelry library, you should follow these steps:
- Buy the app from the Apple Store for $24.99.
- Download it to your device.
- Start the app and enter your name (they just use this to personalize the app; it isn’t shared back to them).
- On the main screen (where you see Romi and Jeanne’s Cowl) tap the “gear” icon in the upper right corner. Then tap the ‘Sync Options’ icon on the lower right hand side of the screen for the Ravelry Code.
- Take that Ravelry code and use it when buying the PDF on Ravelry to get the eBook PDF files in your Ravelry library for $5.
If you buy the PDF on Ravelry without the code you don’t get the discount. The code is IN the app.
About this pattern and the series:
knitwitchnj is a member of my Ravelry group. I don’t know her personally, but I love her Ravelry name so much that I wanted to use it for this shawl instead of her given one.
I imagine her - like Mrs. Weasley of Harry Potter fame - waving her wand and whipping up lovely bits of knitting. When she is finished with the lacy version of this shawl, she decides that she likes beads, and - just like that! - she whips up a squishy stockinette stitch version with beads for a friend who adores a little bling. She loves them both, but they aren’t her colors. What to do? Yes! Another two fly off the needles with ease, one landing in her FO drawer and the other wrapping itself around her neck for a little extra warmth.
Knitwitch is a one skein shawl knit from the bottom up, with full written instructions and charts for two options: a lacy version and version with plain stockinette inserts and beads. Knit from the bottom up, the top is bound off with a reverse stockinette stitch i-cord (like the Brandywine Shawl).
Welcome to year four of my subscription series! 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 September 15, 2014. 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!
As in the past 3 years of subscriptions, the patterns will be sold as an eBook here on Ravelry with the PDF files delivered throughout the year as I release them. But this year, we have an exciting new way to knit the 7 Small Shawls!
Sally slyknits (of knitCompanion fame) and I have teamed up to bring you a Romi App for i-Devices!! Please note that you will still be able to purchase the eBook here exactly as in years past if you do not wish to use the new app.
The Y4 app is a separate stand alone app from knitCompanion. Since this is a living app, patterns will be added all year as I release each new offering in the Y4 series.
Please note, you do not need to purchase the regular knitCompanion app in order to purchase and take full advantage of Romi’s 7 Small Shawls app and all its capabilities. It is a stand-alone app, and won’t affect or interact with your regular knitCompanion app at all.
All patterns will use the knitCompanion capabilities so you never need to lose your spot, and patterns are easy to follow.
Patterns will be set up and ready to knit, with options like charts, sizes, etc (as appropriate). No setup work on your part required!
Video by me (Romi), offered only through the app for special techniques required by each design. Video will be linked in the pattern right where it is needed. And is is indexed for easy access as well.
If you purchase the app you will get a Ravelry discount code so you can add the PDF to your Ravelry library for only $5 if you would like that as well. (Note, if you don’t want the app, you can always purchase just the PDF at its listed price).
This app will only work on Apple i-Devices, it will not work on Apple Macs, Windows or Android phones, etc. Sally is working on a version of knitCompanion for Android, but it isn’t there yet. The app will work with any iDevice that is iOS 6 or later (i-Pad and i-Pad mini preferable so you can see the charts). The only i-Pad that can’t be upgraded to iOS 6 is the original iPad, aka iPad 1. You can see your iOS version on your iPad under Settings, Version.

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!
