In July of 2022, I took down all my patterns. A tiny handful are destined to return, most are not.

I’m still releasing new patterns (along with other fun projects). I just want to focus my time and energy on making new things rather than on maintaining a back catalog of hundreds of older patterns. But there are lots of new things planned, and I’m excited to share them with you!

If you want to follow along with what comes next or read a little more about why I made this change (and the nifty things that happened along the way), you can do that here.

And don’t worry, if you had the pattern in your ravelry library before it went away, it will still be there. It’s always a good idea to keep backups on your own computer (websites don’t last forever), but nothing I can do can take anything out of your library (and I wouldn’t even if I could). Taking the patterns down just means no on else can buy them.

For the woman with a well-stocked wardrobe few if any additions are required for a transatlantic crossing or for a cruise … She will need a scarf or scarfs to keep treacherous winds from blowing down her neck. If her budget is limited it is an excellent plan to have few frocks and several hats and scarfs which vary the appearance of her outfits.

The New Etiquette: The Modern Code of Social Behavior
Margery Wilson, 1937

Alas, all my transatlantic crossings have been made by airplane. But a selection of hats and scarves to vary the appearance of my outfits still has tremendous appeal (as does the thought of something warm and soft to keep treacherous winds from blowing down my neck). This piece, somewhere between a scarf and a cowl, should do the trick nicely. The arrangement of buttons and the lacy nature of the fabric let you fasten it in a tremendous variety of ways. Experiment and find your favorite.
