This cozy cowl is a part of my Halibut pattern collection- including the Halibut sweater and Halibut hat. You can get the entire bundle of patterns at a discounted price- only $12 for all 3 patterns, no code needed. If you’ve already purchased one or more of the patterns Ravelry should automatically apply the discount, but please check before you finish your transaction as discounts cannot be applied retroactively.

If you purchased the Halibut sweater previously at a discounted price, Ravelry will not allow you to use the bundle discount as it only allows one promo per transaction. Therefore you can use the code MYFISHES to receive the hat and cowl for $4 (only valid with previous sweater purchase). Thank you!

Alternatively, any of the patterns in the Halibut collection can be purchased for 20% off using code FISHFUN, valid through 12/25/21. Please note that discounts cannot be combined.

This DK weight colorwork hat is worked up quickly in the round and makes for a lovely gift knit for the fish lover in your life. Inspired by my home in Alaska! This is a tall, jaunty hat that is meant to slouch a bit.
