A Sea Chanty of Sorts is a cute, close fitting cowl with a simple slipped stitch diamond motif.
The cowl is knit from the bottom up in the round, starting with some ribbing. The diamond motif is then knit, following either the chart or written directions. You end with a little more ribbing, and viola! You’ve got yourself the perfect accessory to wear on that fishing voyage!

I have implemented a Pay What Works model for all of my patterns. The full price reflects how much work goes into each of my patterns. All of my patterns are tech edited and test knit. I know not everyone can afford to pay full price, so I have created 3 coupon codes to help:

KnitLL15 - 15% off KnitLL30 - 30% off KnitLL50 - 50% off

I hope that those of you who can afford to pay full price will, but if you can’t please use the code that works best for you. If you are interested in sponsoring patterns for other knitters, please send me a message!
